Over the last few years, Mickey and Minnie Mouse ears have become one of the biggest Disney parks trends. You simply cannot travel to Disneyland or Disney World without a pair of ears.

Name: Jennifer Page, my partner, Ronnie, and two cats "The Boys" Henry and Bones Location: Portage Park/Jefferson Park/Northwest side -- Chicago, Illinois Size: 1,300 square feet Years lived in: 4... years, owned When I moved in to Ronnie's space, our goal as a newly cohabiting couple was to create a space that was entirely our home. We wanted our home to continually inspire us, but also be comfortable and a place to stay tucked away when the work week ends. I'm a floral designer and manage a lifestyle boutique while Ronnie runs a family business of 40 years.

Apartment Therapy editors and writers--we're just like you, readers. What I mean by that is I don't just write here, I'm also a reader of the site, and my go-to is the house tour section. There's... always something new to see, and you can really start to spot trends emerging from the sheer volume of homes showcased there. One thing that I noticed in a recent Atlanta house straight up put a smile on my face--a bright orange kitchen sink, beautifully situated in a corner of the counter. And it just screamed personality. This got me thinking about the sink as a showpiece and how color might play a role in selecting a fixture. Sinks aren't cheap, but when you take a risk here, it can pay off big time design-wise.
Now that we're settled in the New Year, you may have noticed that your credit score has taken a hit after some overly joyous holiday spending. You're not the only one: A recent report from Marcus by... Goldman Sachs says almost half of the U.S. (48 percent) carries a balance or goes into credit card debt over the holidays due to travel, entertaining, and gift costs. While this can make for an exciting holiday season, it usually leaves our wallets--and credit scores--hurting. While a credit score decline may be digestible for some, it can be especially scary if you plan to buy a house or rent an apartment sometime soon. Don't panic: Get back on track by following this expert advice for some quick damage control:

Property Shark recently released its findings for the most expensive zip code in the United States-and the answer might surprise you.

In the zip code 94027, the median sale price is $6.7 million, which spiked about 35 percent since 2017. (Rankings are based on closed home sales.)

Sage looked long and hard for the perfect piece for her entryway. It needed to fit the spot, and be deep and flexible enough to fit a variety of footwear. Most importantly, she didn't want the visual... mess of open shelving.
After many, many years of DIYing, fixing, decorating, and chasing mice in my small studio apartment, I can honestly say that there is NOTHING more enjoyable than getting to build your own home from... the ground up. You might remember that in April 2016 I tore down the small country house (that link also begins a series of posts that detail the process) that I had purchased more than 15 years earlier, beginning a journey that (while there are still some details) I get to celebrate this month with its being photographed and published by my friends over at House Beautiful. While architect John Berg designed the house and interior designer Rebecca Robertson helped me with the insides, the delicious photographs (taken in warm September) were taken by Bjorn Wallander and you should check out the...
