<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER 鈥?There鈥檚 decorating, and then there鈥檚 organizing. From the Instagram-sensation home experts (with a serious fan club that includes Reese Witherspoon, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Mindy Kaling), here is an accessible, room-by-room guide to establishing new order in your home.</b><br /><br />Believe this: every single space in your house has the potential to function efficiently <i>and</i> look great. The mishmash of summer and winter clothes in the closet? Yep. Even the dreaded junk drawer? Consider it done. And the best news: it鈥檚 not hard to do鈥攊n fact, it's a lot of fun. <br /><br /> From the home organizers who made their orderly eye candy <i>the</i> method that everyone swears by comes Joanna and Clea鈥檚 signature approach to decluttering. <i>The Home Edit</i> walks you through paring down your belongings in every room, arranging them in a stunning and easy-to-find way (hello, labels!), and maintaining the system so you don't need another do-over in six months. When you're done, you'll not only know exactly where to find things, but you'll also love the way it looks.<br /><br /> A masterclass and look book in one, <i>The Home Edit</i> is filled with bright photographs and detailed tips, from placing plastic dishware in a drawer where little hands can reach to categorizing pantry items by color (there's nothing like a little ROYGBIV to soothe the soul). Above all, it's like having your best friends at your side to help you turn the chaos into calm.<br /><b><br />PLEASE NOTE: The paperback includes a starter set of labels for your refrigerator; the ebook and audiobook include a link to download and print the labels from a computer (you will need 8-1/2 x 11-inch clear repositionable sticker project paper, such as Avery 4397).</b><br /><b><br />Featured in <i>Glamour</i>'s 10 Books to Help You Live Your Best Life</b>
The Longing for Less: Living with Minimalism

<b><i>New York Times Book Review </i>Editor's Choice</b><br /><b><br /></b><b>"More than just a story of an abiding cultural preoccupation, <i>The Longing For Less</i> peels back the commodified husk of minimalism to reveal something surprising and thoroughly alive." -Jenny Odell, author of </b><i><b>How to Do Nothing</b> </i><br /><br />鈥淟ess is more鈥? Everywhere we hear the mantra. Marie Kondo and other decluttering gurus promise that shedding our stuff will solve our problems. We commit to cleanse diets and strive for inbox zero. Amid the frantic pace and distraction of everyday life, we covet silence-and airy, Instagrammable spaces in which to enjoy it. The popular term for this brand of upscale austerity, 鈥渕inimalism,鈥?has mostly come to stand for things to buy and consume. But minimalism has richer, deeper, and altogether more valuable gifts to offer. <br /> <br />Kyle Chayka is one of our sharpest cultural observers. After spending years covering minimalist trends for leading publications, he now delves beneath this lifestyle's glossy surface, seeking better ways to claim the time and space we crave. He shows that our longing for less goes back further than we realize. His search leads him to the philosophical and spiritual origins of minimalism, and to the stories of artists such as Agnes Martin and Donald Judd; composers such as John Cage and Julius Eastman; architects and designers; visionaries and misfits. As Chayka looks anew at their extraordinary lives and explores the places where they worked-from Manhattan lofts to the Texas high desert and the back alleys of Kyoto-he reminds us that what we most require is presence, not absence. The result is an elegant new synthesis of our minimalist desires and our profound emotional needs.

<b>The ultimate guide to human-centered design </b><br />Even the smartest among us can feel inept as we fail to figure out which light switch or oven burner to turn on, or whether to push, pull, or slide a door. <br />The fault, argues this ingenious -- even liberating -- book, lies not in ourselves, but in product design that ignores the needs of users and the principles of cognitive psychology. The problems range from ambiguous and hidden controls to arbitrary relationships between controls and functions, coupled with a lack of feedback or other assistance and unreasonable demands on memorization.<i><br /></i><i>The Design of Everyday Things</i> shows that good, usable design is possible. The rules are simple: make things visible, exploit natural relationships that couple function and control, and make intelligent use of constraints. The goal: guide the user effortlessly to the right action on the right control at the right time.<br /><br /><i>The Design of Everyday Things</i> is a powerful primer on how -- and why -- some products satisfy customers while others only frustrate them.<br />
