Thermos sponsored a recent study with leading fitness researchers and discovered that cold hydration increases performance when exercising. Sipping down cold water (40° F) has been shown to keep a person's core temperature down, and drinking enough water will help you exercise longer and harder. I'll drink to that! Depending on the length of your workout, whether it's a 30-minute run or a 6-hour hike, here are some items you'll need to keep your water frosty cold in the Summer heat.

With the hefty price of gas these days, National Bike to Work Week couldn't have come at a better time.

When biking, make sure to exercise caution and use common sense to ensure your safety on the roads. Here are some cycling accessories to keep you safe when transporting yourself from A to B.

In the premiere issue of the new Traditional Home/Lonny digital magazine hybrid Trad Home, one of the 20 designers heralded for ushering in a "new trad" design style is one of my personal favorites: Jeff Andrews. Trad Home gives us a peek at a cozy living room Andrews designed for a client with a young family. There are plenty of elements to swoon over, like velvet upholstery, a plush shag rug, and a foursome of starburst mirrors, but what I'm truly coveting is the mellow yellow color palette!
A mix of chartreuse textiles, gilded furniture and accessories, and layers of dark greens paired with two shades of green paint come together perfectly to create a dimensional, engaging, and relaxed space. The surest way to replicate this look is to pick up some groovy green paint swatches and then head straight to the fabric shop to have your furniture upholstered. But I thought I'd start you off with a few mellow yellow décor items that tell this color story; click each item above to shop the look!
