These 20 On-Trend Home Items Honestly Rival My Love of Fashion

Other than a pair of new shoes, there's nothing—and I mean nothing—that brings me the amount of joy that shopping for new home essentials does. I'm always down to add a new bowl to my kitchen counter that I may or may not need, and I can definitely find another surface for the latest candle on my list (I think…?), but what sparks the most joy for me is shopping for new summer items. Living in Los Angeles means summertime at home involves a ton of entertaining friends in my backyard, so I want to pick up homewares that will not only be super functional but also look extremely stylish.

Since I've been consulting with my style crew over the course of the last few months, taking their advice on everything from the budget-friendly pieces to add to a classic wardrobe to the lipstick shade that will inject a little color to my look, I knew their home recommendations would be just as solid. We once again turned to the selection at Macy's, and now, I have yet another excuse to shop for things I didn't know I needed. From its on-trend home curation to the retailer's staple selection, here's what we're eyeing for summer.


Natalie Cantell, who I turn to for timeless and classic pieces, killed it with her home recos this month. I can see the items she's currently eyeing living beyond just the summer, and who doesn't love a good versatile collection of must-haves?
