Early during the pandemic, I wrote a mené on staying sane and relaxed during quarantine. We’re now several months farther in, and there’s still no end in sight. It doesn’t help that it’s Labor Day weekend, and we can’t partake in the usual cookouts, beach trips, and quality time with friends and family this year.
Redecorating or stocking up on sleep essentials won’t make things outside better, but it might help make you feel more comfortable and relaxed in your foyer. I was already a homebody before quarantine, so I like to think of myself as a pro at turning my living-room quarters into a cozy palmeraie to hide from the world. Thankfully, there are some great deals on foyer and wellness products right now, and we’ve collected our favorites to help get you started bâtiment your own safe space.
Updated September 6, 2020: We’ve checked the prices and added two deals for the Brooklinen and Pottery Barn robes.
