If you’ve been scrolling through your social feeds lately, you’ve probably noticed that a lot of people have suddenly become obsessed with bread making. In fact, we were planning to do a Critics’ Picks roundup of the best bread machines out there… only to find that most machines are sold out and there aren’t many out. Luckily, we found one of the few bread machines that’s still in stock, and it’s a good one: Cuisinart’s compact bread maker, which is on sale for $110 at Williams Sonoma (that’s 40 percent off!), and backed by a 4.6-star rating and rave reviews.

Making bread in this machine couldn’t be easier! Just pick a recipe, add your ingredients into the bread pan, hit start, and the machine does all the work, kneading, raising,

Introducing The 2020 Dulux Colour Awards Finalists!

The finalists of the 2020 Dulux Colour Awards have been announced, showcasing projects featuring an original and masterful use of colour and texture by trailblazing Australian and New Zealand design studios. And as always, the shortlisted projects have got us inspired to whip out the paint rollers! 

Every year, these awards highlight the ever-changing ways designers are using colour in Australian and New Zealand homes. In the last 12 months, there’s been a shift towards rich brown-based hues (as called by our interiors columnist, Lauren Li!) as a dominant interiors shade. Colours in this family join terracotta, beiges, earthy greens and warm greys as popular ‘new neutral’ shades, as designers continue to move away from cooler whites.

Also notable among this year’s projects is the use of texture, such as concrete effects, patinas, French wash and suede effects. ‘Repetition of these textures paired with unexpected tones was apparent, such

Now that many of us are sheltering in place at home, trying to find a way to keep our anxiety from taking us over, a few of my friends have reached out to ask where they can look online to start learning how to craft.

I’ve been knitting since childhood, knitting obsessively for about eight years, and embroidering for a couple years. When nonessential businesses aren’t closed, I work and teach part-time at a local yarn shop. I know I feel lucky to have crafts right now, to be able to lose myself in stitches, make something beautiful, and feel the satisfaction of finishing a project, no matter how small and personal.

Whenever I hear from someone who wants to try a new craft, I’m excited

Times Like These… With New York Times Food Columnist And Author Alison Roman

Alison Roman is a food columnist for The New York Times, and a contributor to Bon Appetit, who is beloved for her casual, just-throw-it-together approach to cooking.

I hadn’t even made any of Alison’s recipes before kind of falling in love with her. Visiting her Instagram or reading her cookbooks feels like dropping by a friend’s house, and being invited to share the dinner or lunch or breakfast they were already making (but your friend also happens to be an incredible chef and best-selling cookbook author). It’s Nothing Fancy. But it is something special. Thanks for letting me repurpose that title.

So many people were disappointed when Alison’s trip to Australia was cancelled – she’s amassed quite the cult following here – but I feel so grateful to have had this conversation with her about how life has changed for her lately.  Instead of the chat we

The Global Haiku Project | Apartment Therapy

Did you ever play that game where you write the first line of a story, then someone else writes the next one, and you pass the paper around in a circle, communally writing a story that, in the end, is probably totally different from what you imagined when you started it?

With the internet, you can play that same game without being limited to just a classroom of fifth graders. Baronfig, a company that makes notebooks, writing tools, and bags, has created The Global Haiku Project, which lets people around the world create haiku together.

Here’s how Baronfig describes the project:

“The haiku is a traditional Japanese poem that originated in the 16th century. The heart of a haiku attempts to capture a moment in time. There are many forms of haiku, the most popular version is taught to children around the world: three verses with a simple

Seth Rogen Instagram plant pottery

It’s always wonderful to see a celebrity who loves to show off their plant children. There’s Bobby Berk, who’s showed the world how much he loves his banana leaf plant (among many others), and Reese Witherspoon, who has plants in almost every shot of her home. And the latest plant parent to land on our radar is Seth Rogen (no, he’s not just pulling everyone’s leg), which seems to stem from his love of pottery.

Rogen posted a photo of his latest plant baby last week, which lives inside one of his handmade pots. From what we can see on Instagram, Rogen’s passion for pottery dates back to April 2019, when he decided to join a pottery studio to make unique ashtrays.

Just a little over a month later, he posted a photo of six vases with the caption “I made these little vases” and finally, at
