Top 60 Home Ideas in June

From Touchscreen Mirrors to Shower-Friendly Speakers

— July 1, 2016 — Art & Design
These inventive June 2016 home ideas explore a few of the ways brands are helping consumers bring new life into their living spaces for the summer months and beyond with innovative designs.

One of the most prevalent themes in these emerging home ideas is effortless maintenance. Homes, furniture pieces and accessories are being designed to be as low-maintenance as possible, meaning that they are more equipped to serve certain functions. Great examples of this include anti-bacterial pillows and digital art frames that fill themselves with aesthetically pleasing artwork.

Fans of Ellen DeGeneres will be pleased to know that the comedian and TV personality has partnered up with Bed Bath & Beyond for a bedding collection. Several home furnishing and decor companies are also following suit with other collaborations from bloggers and influencers.
