The Recipe For Social Distancing: This Summer Does Not Have to Be a Bummer.

Posted by Lianne Stokes on

A Personal Space Summer is always the busiest season. In between providing the latest pieces for home remodels we always receive an influx of orders for dishware and everything dining. This 2020 Summer is a bit different for all of us. Some of us are isolated and fearful during a global health pandemic. We are sending love and light to our community who is struggling with homeschooling, camp cancelations, and working from home. Several of our clients have voiced to us that they long to get out and enjoy nature but wanted tips on how to stay safe from Covid-19. 

Being a novel virus, the research is ever-evolving. But we are confident in recent findings that scientists have found the virus transmits more easily indoors and that being out in the open air is a healthier option while socializing. This May 23rd, 2020 article in the New York Times sums it up beautifully. Humans transmit the virus while talking via droplets. You can get the virus outdoors, but it's not as likely. Plus, wind dilutes the virus. A breeze continues to be a welcome thing. While outdoors, remain 6 feet away from anyone you do not live with. Wear a mask. While eating or drinking  it's hard to do, so be cautious of not speaking while you chew :-) 

If you're going to host a picnic or a BBQ this summer, remember, set out blankets 6 feet apart and have hand sanitizer available as well as soap and water for your guests. Make sure the communal bathroom has extra sanitizing measures such as Lysol spray and Clorox wipes. Ask your guests to wear masks. Now you're ready to gather on the lawn with your blankets and your shades, here are some recipes to ensure your taste buds pop.

Cumin Seared Scallop Tacos

David Cheng's Tuna Pasta Salad

 Grilled Cheese Hot Dogs

The Personal Space MB Green Design Series: Bamboo Edition.

Posted by Lianne Stokes on

Bamboo has long been the favorite snack of the panda bear. But in 2020, the plant's biggest fans are furniture and interior designers. Green design is a pressing issue in the interiors industry as each Friday, we see environmental advocates standing out on Social media in locations from DC to Iceland and beyond for Fire Drill Fridays. Today, we'd like to introduce our Green Design Series, which shares inspiration for how you can have a greener home by using sustainable products. You won't have to compromise on style, which is the best part! 

Now, let's talk BAMBOO.

 1. Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on earth. It's most renewable super grass. Some species grow an inch an hour, with most bamboo averaging growth of up to 3.5 feet per hour. No fertilizer is needed to grow bamboo, it's truly the most regenerative gift of nature. If you've got a commercial project at a resort, or a residential space that demands Green Design, we are in LOVE with our bamboo wall features and lighting. 

 

                                      The Bamboo Spiral Wall Feature.

 

 

 

                                          Curved Bamboo Wall Feature.

 

 

 

                                                  Bamboo Spiral Pendant.  

 

 

 

 
2.  Bamboo is a grass which makes it more water resistant and stronger than hardwood. The benefits of having outdoor bamboo furniture are endless! 

 

                                                      The Lincak Chair

 

                                                 

                                        The Linear Collection Bamboo Bar Stool.

 

 

 

 

  The Radee Collection Bamboo Sofa Bed

 

3. Bamboo is biodegradable, antibacterial and odor resistant. Basically, bamboo is the only furniture you CAN have around pets and kids! :-)

The Best Gift Ideas for Holiday 2019!

Posted by Lianne Stokes on

 

It's time to light up your life this holiday season. What's going to get you through extra family time? The food allergies? The yams? No one likes yams! We've got just the thing. Our candle collection will allow you to  decompress ahead of time.  It's about to get real with these sweet scents. 

 

THE AYDRY & CO CANDLE COLLECTION.

 

Champagne Brunch

When you light the wick of Champagne Brunch, you are transcended to a table at your favorite spot. Anyone who annoys you at this venue immediately disappears from your field of vision. Your favorite dish comes out perfect and on time. Everyone at the table knows you're the queen and they delight you with witty banter. The bubbly keeps coming. It's a rare vintage from the best vineyard in the champagne region of France. "Only the best for you, Beautiful," the hot waiter says. 

 

 

Shooting Star

 

Even if you're an introvert you deserve a red carpet moment. You deserve a Prince and you need a fabulous dress and multiple pairs of heels. Shooting Star will take you anywhere. To Bali. To a job promotion. To a highway paved with glitter. Light up Shooting Star and you receive that rocket ship to bliss.

 

Green Tea

 

Girl! Green Tea is an antioxidant. You're basically turning back the clock when you light this candle up! If anyone tells you  you're not being healthy this holiday season, just point to your Green Tea Candle. You're welcome. 

For the full collection check it here.

 

THE STOCKHOME CANDLE COLLECTION

 

Cotton

 

This candle is our best seller! If you never sat at the popular table in high school, now is your time. You and Cotton will be fast friends without all the drama and cattiness of teenage girls! Light up Cotton's wick and immediately your room will achieve the cleanest, purest smell. This soft scent is ready for you after a long day of hard stuff. 

 

 

Cedar

 

Who doesn't love a cute (well furnished) log cabin? Who doesn't wish every morning was Christmas? Well, maybe some people, but they're just harshing your vibe. Cedar is a clean, masculine-leaning scent. It's not to say that ladies don't like it, but if you're going to get the man in your life to light a scented candle this holiday season, it's going to be Stockhome's Cedar. It's the lumber-sexual scent of the century in our opinion. If you've got a man in your life who could benefit from relaxation this is the gift for him. 

For the entire collection check it out here.

 

 

SCENT MEMORIES CANDLE COLLECTION

 

Chasing the Sun 

 

The Scent Memories Collection is special. This line is meant to evoke a sense (pun intended) of positive times in your life. Chasing the Sun is an inspirational scent that implores you go to Miami even if you didn't get the promotion you wanted. It allows you the freedom to follow your path even it others judge you. When you light up this scent candle, you get what you want. You follow the LIGHT. 

 

Ghost Money 

 

We do not have to sell this scent. Our clients just want that GHOST MONEY. Look, even If you're not where you want to be you can't deny the concept of Ghost Money. It's fast, furious, rich, and very Hollywood. Light up this sexy scent and get ready for a ride in the G-Wagon of your dreams. Where are you headed? Only you know and that's your power! Light 'er up. 

For the full collection check it here.
