Le Creuset dutch oven

This post originally appeared on April 14, 2020, in Add to Cart — the weekly newsletter for people who love shopping (almost) as much as they love eating. Subscribe now.

I’ve always been a sucker for house tours. I’ll watch Vogue’s 73 Questions videos with the sound off, just to peep the houses; I love a good Curbed House Calls column; and I regularly fall down Apartment Therapy clickholes looking at other people’s apartments.

While the slick, produced tours can be ultra satisfying (or devastating — watch Liv Tyler’s Architectural Digest house tour and weep), recently I’ve found myself comforted by the mundane. Instagram right now offers endless peeks into kitchens famous — Gwyneth Paltrow is posting unedited videos of her and her kids’ dinner prep, Eric Ripert is prolifically churning out home cooking tutorials — and non-famous alike, as seemingly everyone I’ve ever met is now streaming directly from their homes and into mine.

Needless to say, peeping the kitchen tools, artwork on the walls, perky plants, and other delightful home touches (I’ve spied some excellent stocked bar carts through Zoom) provides a much-needed shopping distraction right now.
