There are certain days of the year we at Domino just can’t wait for—the first day of spring (flowers!), Salone del Mobile (all the new furniture!), and Nordstrom’s anniversary sale. That’s because among the big discounts on clothing and makeup, there are always some great home deals in the mix, too. 

We sifted through the sale to find our absolute favorites, and they all happen to fall into one category: chill. That means stress-melting designer candles, fluffy waffle towels, and soothing art. 

Dried Up

Maximalist bathrooms are now a thing, and Marimekko’s cheery striped and squiggle prints add a surge of happiness to any space. But if you’re looking for Japanese spa vibes, Matouk and Slowtide have you covered. 


Bed Head

Silksleep accessories—from an eye mask to a scrunchie—are said to help with hair breakage, but they also feel cool to the touch, a bonus in the summer months.

Designer candles are rarely on sale, so now’s the time to stock up on celebrity favorites such as Boy Smells, Diptyque, and Malin & Goetz. And because these are sets of minis, you can spread them throughout your home.

Sparkling Water Maker by Aarke, Nordstrom ($198 was $249)

Cool Dude

This insulated water bottle is narrow enough to fit into most cup holders (deputy editor Julie Vadnal uses hers for biking) and also keeps ice cubes cold for hours. It’s ideal for a hot beach day or a bottle of wine at an outdoor concert.
