July 11, 2022 – In case a wall refresh is in your future, we think Backdrop’s newest coverings are the perfect way to add some interest to your interiors. Designed in Los Angeles and digitally printed in Brooklyn, these five new prints have a bespoke feel to give new life your walls. Even though you won’t go wrong with the on-trend Gambit checkerboard print or flowery Superbloom, we like the look of Reptilia’s cheeky embroidered crocs.
July 12, 2022 – When we visited Ashley Tisdale’s Los Angeles home back in March, we couldn’t get enough of her laid-back and California-cool aesthetic. And if you’re looking to curate a relaxed vibe in your own space, the actor’s new wellness line—Being Frenshe—has everything you need. From fresh candles to soothing bath essentials and luxurious body treatments, it’s easy to want everything. But if you’re being choose-y, we’d opt for this citrus hair, body, and linen mist to have any room smelling like fresh lemons.
July 12, 2022 – Keeping all your fave canned drinks ice cold through the rest of summer heat waves is easy with the newest must-have from YETI. Earlier this month, the brand released its ultra-durable and fan-favorite cooler in a convenient wheeled design that includes a sturdy telescopic handle to bring beverages to and fro without having to shoulder the load. Cheers to that!
July 12, 2022 – Earlier this month, Jonathan Adler and Ruggable unveiled a second collection of very chic rugs and door mats to spice up your floor plan. Available in adaptable rectangular, round, and runner designs, these spill- and stain-proof mats are especially ideal for high traffic home areas. Our favorite? This psychedelic rainbow waterfall pattern that’s available in a bold multicolor colorway or a monochromatic palette of blues.
July 15, 2022 – In celebration of Haand’s ten year anniversary, the stylish ceramics brand has released its popular ripple collection in two new collectable colorways: turmeric and vespertine. Translated into a warm speckled yellow inspired by the vibrant spice and an abyss-like deep blue with green detailing, consider the dishware for your next dinner party sorted.
July 15, 2022 – Here’s something sweet: Clever-approved candle brand Nette launched a delectable 100% raw honey to complement its best-selling Queen scent in July. Inspired by the original fragrance’s notes of honey, hay, and wildflowers, each batch of honey is harvested in New York City by a certified master beekeeper and member of Certified Naturally Grown, an organization that promotes sustainable and ethical agricultural practices. To sweeten the pot even more, a portion of proceeds from honey and candle sets will go to select pollinator charities.
July 16, 2022 – Since summer’s in full bloom, the newest collab from Friends NYC and Stems BK is just the thing to take you from beach days to morning farmers market strolls. If this adorable flower doodle-emblazoned canvas tote and matching dad cap aren’t enough to sway you, know that 5% of all sales from this collaboration will be donated to Bk Rot, a community-powered and fossil-free waste and compost hauling service. And for all the hardcore green thumbs, know that all the hang tags are seeded, meaning you’ll be able to plant them and grow some wildflowers of your own.
July 18, 2022 – It’s easy to see why Thuma’s frame is consistently one of the most popular items purchased by Clever readers—not only is it effortlessly stylish, but it’s also an ideal purchase for anyone looking for a long-lasting frame that’s easy to move with. And if you want to test the frame’s “quiet, easy-to-put-together setup” (according to our digital design writer Zoë Sessums), we’re happy to report that the brand just released the bestseller in a handsome shade of dark brown espresso wood stain.
July 19, 2022 – We think Macy’s newest collab with Monique Greenwood’s iconic Akwaaba Bed & Breakfast Inns is just the thing to make your home feel like a luxe getaway. And although the collection is full of earthy-toned bedding, tableware, decor, and more to rejuvenate your space, these faux leather quilted pillows are a modern way to dress up any couch or a simple bedspread.
July 19, 2022 – If a bouquet that will stay fresh through the summer (and beyond!) sounds too good to be true, allow us be the first to introduce you to Venus et Fleur’s long-lasting stems. This month, the brand launched eternity bouquets featuring brand new calla lilies surrounded by roses, dianthus, and hydrangeas. So, whether you’re in the mood for a seasonal splurge or looking to treat your summer love to an arrangement, look to Venus!
July 20, 2022 – Looking to spice things up at the summer function? We recommend gifting your host the latest from Ghia to bring the party in a healthy way. Last week, the brand added a new elixir to their refreshing lineup: Lime & Salt. Concocted to taste “crisp and salty like a refreshing dip in the Mediterranean,” the deliciously bitter aperitivo is spritzed with fresh lime and a dash of sea salt for a perfect summery sip.
July 21, 2022 – Sparks are flying over at Flora Nero. The recently launched brand just released its first collection of high-design smoke-ware. Inspired by the space race era and the emerging jet set, each item—like this sleek matte lighter—mimics shapes and silhouettes reminiscent of 1950s UFO imagery for a truly out-of-this-world feel.
July 21, 2022 – Just in time for your next home office refresh, the Afternoon Light x Emeco Navy Officer’s Chair is the bright spot your 9–5 have been missing. Reimagined in a powder coated green with a reissued “Mexidot” pattern upholstery by Alexander Girard, this adorable seat made from recycled fiber is giving us serious WFH envy.
July 22, 2022 – If you’re in the market for a full personal care overhaul, we love everything this Made for Muji by Public Goods collection is giving. Sharing an ethos surrounding brand simplicity and sustainability, the natural collaboration between Muji and Public Goods includes everything you’ll need to bring minimal elegance to your washroom rituals: shampoo, body wash, and even toilet paper.
July 27, 2022 – Since everyone should have a little greenery in their home, design-friendly AC brand July is here to deliver a touch of indoor nature in a very functional way. Earlier this week, the brand unveiled a limited-edition moss-covered front panel for its enviable air conditioning units. Made with preserved and live moss (that’s even friendly to serial plant killers), we consider this the ideal accessory to keep your home looking and feeling cool this summer.
July 29, 2022 – Relive your favorite sun-drenched summer memories all year with the latest fragrance from Snif. With notes of neroli, tuberose, rum, cedarwood, and amber, Snif’s Ditch Plains is a getaway in and of itself. Inspired and named after the buzzing Montauk, New York, beach, we think the scent will remind you of days in the Hamptons even after you’ve closed the vacation house.
