OFF TO THE RACES
The most stylish sport of the spring comes with historic traditions that include a fantastic drink… and big hats. We can’t forget the hats! The Mint Julep has roots in Virginia and is a staple of this weekend’s Kentucky Derby. This signature drink is a must-have for “the greatest two minutes in sports,” and we’ve given you the recipe to make it. Get ready for the race with a Mint Julep in hand, thoroughbred-inspired wall décor and your best fashion. It may not be the Millionaires Row box seats, but at least you’ll be watching at home in true derby style.

DIY VS DIFM (DO IT FOR ME)
Wall art and mirrors are great home enhancers (and some of our personal favorite finishing touches). They can turn blank walls and plain Jane rooms into lively spaces in an instant! Get inspired by our staff’s recent creative wall projects, or opt for our do-it-for-me solutions instead. Either way, you’ll make your home a prettier, more interesting place to live.

A BRILLIANT SWITCH
Lighting, when done right, is a subtle accent that makes a huge difference in a room. What makes an even bigger difference is eco-friendly lighting. It’s Earth Day, and we’re celebrating with one tip on saving energy in the most stylish way possible of course. Pair any of our lighting options with LED light bulbs from The Home Depot®. Planet Earth will be so proud.
But what makes these light bulbs so great? The benefits are astounding. LED light bulbs are cost-efficient and consume 85% less energy than traditional incandescent light bulbs. Plus, they stay cool and don’t contain mercury. And since these light bulbs can last 20 years (that’s an approximate 25,000 to 50,000 hours compared to 2,000 hours for incandescent light bulbs), you won’t have to worry about changing a light bulb… no matter how many times you switch out a lamp.
Make the switch with this LED light bulb from The Home Depot®.

KIM AND LILY’S RUG ADVENTURES
Part of our Rug Buyer and Associate Rug Buyer’s jobs are globetrotting to India. How cool is that? It’s there where some of our most beautifully designed rugs are handmade, and Kim and Lily get to see it all in person (plus experience some pretty cool things along the way). The process – which Kim and Lily (and us included!) have a great appreciation for – is nothing short of impressive.
