7 Minimalist Sneakers to Maximize Your Wardrobe

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/7-minimalist-sneakers-maximize-wardrobe/2018-minimalist-sneakers/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/02/2018-minimalist-sneakers-810x478.jpg" alt="7 Minimalist Sneakers to Maximize Your Wardrobe" /></a>
                                I love fancy footworks as much as the next person and believe that a great outfit can be ruined (or at the very least, go undocumented) with a bad choice in shoes (nothing a little photo-cropping can’t fix to salvage that photo though). However, when it comes to sneakers, I hail from the “less is more” camp, even while ‘Dad shoes’ and retro ‘sneaks are making a comeback. Simple, minimalist sneakers just have a soft spot in my heart, especially when they’re well-made and classically designed with modern elements. I’m also more inclined to hand over $200 when I think about how many outfits can go with a minimalist sneaker over a maximalist one.
If you’re in the market for a pair of fresh new kicks, here are 7 current favorites that our Tech Editor Gregory and I rounded up to help with your window shopping.

And now, it&#8217;s making its way back to the forefront in the design world, which has us exploring some fun ways to bring it back into our homes. Take a look at some gold accessories that will help you take a dip back into the gold pond.

8 Colorful Toys Designed to Spark the Imagination

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/8-colorful-building-block-toys/blockhood-toys/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2017/12/Blockhood-toys-810x455.png" alt="8 Colorful Toys Designed to Spark the Imagination" /></a>
                                Even before my short 3-year stint as a designer in the toy industry, I&#8217;ve long harbored a love for toys. I believe at their best, toys represent the tools of unfettered creativity and imagination personified into the action of play – habits that sadly fade from the majority of adults as we age. Thankfully, adulthood has only marginally diminished my interest in playthings, with the holiday season magnifying curiosity about toys new and old. Here are 8 of my favorite architecturally-inspired playthings designed to compel exploration of form and structure, regardless of age.

                                Ideally the bedroom is a dedicated domain for sleep – a calm, quiet, and peaceful oasis in our otherwise busy, loud, and stressful lives. But as goes with most everything in our WiFi connected lives, the bedroom typically inhabits a multi-purpose duty beyond sleep and intimacy. It&#8217;s where we read, work, watch television, browse online, and anything else imaginable beyond the unconscious spell of slumber. Finding the balance between a restful, healthy atmosphere with our perpetually plugged-in lifestyles takes planning, so we&#8217;ve gathered several technologies designed to optimize comfort, convenience, and health.

10 Modern Decks of Playing Cards to Keep You in the Game

                                Last month, we shared 10 of our <a href="http://design-milk.com/10-modern-puzzles-adults-will-want-to-get-their-hands-on/" data-wpel-link="internal">favorite modern puzzles</a> and this month we&#8217;re staying analogue and exploring the world of playing cards. With everything landing in the digital realm these days, we think it&#8217;s pretty cool to take a few steps away from technology from time to time to experience other forms of entertainment. Playing cards have been around for what seems like forever with more game options than you can possibly imagine. So, whether your game of choice is poker, gin rummy, solitaire, war, bridge, or go fish, pick up a fun deck or two to take the game to another level.

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for the Mom Who Loves Tech

                                <p class="p1">My dear mom ranks as the most difficult person to purchase gifts for by a wide margin. The silk scarf I brought back from Paris: relegated somewhere back into her closet to never be seen again. The multitude of shoes purchased according to her explicit preferences? &#8220;Not my style any more!&#8221; Instead, my 70-something mom professes love for two gifts I&#8217;ve given: her Apple iPhone and the Amazon Echo – each beloved probably because they answer her beck and call without hesitation. I&#8217;m sure this isn&#8217;t rare nor the exception these days, septuagenarian or otherwise.</p>
So in the spirit of my own mom, here’s a follow-up to our recent gift guide for Mother’s Day, one catering to the moms with an affinity for the latest devices, apps, streaming, and staying connected: Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for the Mom Who Loves Tech 1. Baseus Aurora Gradient iPhone Case $20 2.

                                Becoming adept at working while traveling requires several instances of trial and error (e.g. <em>always</em> bring your own power adapter; preload an offline map of wherever you&#8217;re traveling to) – strategies and preferences born out of necessity, but also shaped by preferences in comfort we enjoy while at home. Inspired by last year&#8217;s <a href="http://design-milk.com/?s=city+in+a+suitcase"  data-wpel-link="internal">City in a Suitcase</a> series I considered my own selection of essentials – technology, clothing, accessories – that have earned their place within my luggage whenever a passport is required, each valued because they&#8217;ve proved invaluable while working abroad.
