Having a dishwasher is great, I'm not going to lie. However, there are still lots of things that don't go in so doing the dishes never really goes away. If I had to give up any appliance the dishwasher would be the one to go.

I like seeing my progress and enjoying the scent of Ivory dishsoap. I'm inspired here to branch out and spend a little extra for some nicer soap - Stonewall Kitchen makes some great scents. Weirdly, its a little time with myself that I don't get otherwise either, so I never really mind doing dishes. And everyone knows that the best part of any party is the chatter during the group cleanup!

We focused on lovely food that would appeal to everyone instead of our favorites - that was for the honeymoon!! We had serving stations, with a chef at each making individual portions of lobster ravioli, a beef round carving station, a massive crudite selection and one other one -- ha! can't remember now -- but my favorite part was that the guest moved around, mixed and mingled instead of remaining seated and being served.

I like that it has a cohesive personality and that it looks like it evolved over time. It has that 'we actually live here' look vs 'the I just went to every store I could think of to furnish my pristine room' look. I really don't like the overthought and Pinterest-y museum look at all.

So much of this is midcentury, it would be nice to see other styles and concepts too.

I think the one for the closet is actually a Lazy Shoe-zin.
