I've always been a homebody, but lately, I've been leaning into it even more (for obvious reasons). I'm pretty much obsessed with creating the coziest, most comfortable space I can in the hopes that it will help me be a bit less scatterbrained. It's certainly not a silver bullet, but having an inviting home helps ease my stress just a tad.
To that end, I've rounded up some of my favorite items I personally have at home. From sheets and socks to candles and desk accessories, scroll down to shop some pieces you'll find in my apartment and read my mini-reviews for each.
I love Pact's 100% organic cotton sateen sheets for a number of reasons. They have a super crisp, cool, and soft feel which is great because I'm a hot sleeper. They also don't come out of the dryer a wrinkly mess which is always a bonus. I have the "natural" color and I'm obsessed with the subtle buttery yellow hue.
Since my bed now sometimes serves as my WFH desk, I'm even more confident that investing in great bedding is worth it. I have an affordable duvet from Target that I cover with this luxurious mulberry silk duvet cover and it helps my room feel like a hotel.
I bought this mattress a few years ago during a Black Friday sale, so I thought it'd be a good time to share my thoughts since it's currently 10% now through November 25. I think this mattress is soft and cushy while still being supportive, which is a great combo for me. The brand says the Original Mattress is ranked a medium in the firmness scale, meaning it's not too soft and not too firm, so it's a perfect balance if you're having trouble deciding on one. I only purchased one mattress so I haven't compared it to similar brands, but I really think it's a universally comfortable mattress.
I usually like woodsy smells at home, except in my bathroom. That's where I like refreshing, clean scents like this grapefruit candle by fresh. A curated selection of the brand's products is now available at West Elm, which is highly convenient for gift buying.
This was one of those purchases where I relied on the insanely impressive Amazon reviews—it has over 20,000 of them. I have an older mattress in my room at my parent's house that I wanted to make more comfortable. I didn't want to spend money on a whole new mattress since I'm not there all the time, so this topper was the perfect compromise. It's not a miracle worker but for the price, it's absolutely worth it to add extra comfort.
I mined my Amazon orders to find things to call out for this story and I'm glad I didn't forget about this little guy. It perfectly fits over my office chair armrest, which previously had no cushioning at all even though it wasn't that cheap. This makes my WFH life so much more comfortable.
