Heavenly Hallways: Decor Tips to Transform Your Corridor

Share: Hallways are typically the most narrow, cramped spaces in our homes, making them difficult to design without crossing that fine line between stylish and cluttered. However, with so many cool furniture shops around, especially online, it’s easy to become enamored with everything we see and to make endless small purchases.

If you’re struggling with getting your hallway designed to your specifications, here are a...

Jura 10: A Unique Island Whisky

Share: Jura 10​, an Island Single Malt Scotch Whisky and the first release in Jura’s new core line for the U.S., arrived on the market this past spring, and judging from the taste and price, it should do well here. I found Jura 10 to be a smooth, light, delicious and well-balanced scotch with strong vanilla and caramel notes. Just lovely, with a delicate finish. Easy to drink straight or with ice/water. For me, this makes Jura 10 an excellent value–easily competitive with scotch that costs two, perhaps even three times more. Produced by one of the oldest distilleries in...
