I am thrilled to be launching my new company Housepad app in conjunction with this year’s Showhouse. I can’t think of a more exciting place and time to bring this project to life. It was 14-years ago this month that I launched 1stdibs.com.
Housepad was designed to make life at home ever more beautiful using the Japanese kaizen method—the continual improvement philosophy—where, by taking small steps, you can immediately raise the standard of anything.
Housepad uses images as the primary form of communication so you can easily manage and maintain your home the way you want it to be.
- Create your household “Lookbook” so everyone knows what you want, from how towels are folded to dishes put away. It’s up to you—never ask a second time.
- Assign To Do’s and, if you like, be notified when they are done.
- Create your home’s Master List of the products you and your entire household use, and have your list fulfilled through your Amazon account. No one ever needs to run out of anything again.
- Create a personal catalog of everything you own and include copies of invoices, serial numbers, warranty information and care instructions.
Every household needs an Emergency Command Center. Keep contact information for doctors, vets, teachers, family, staff and all other people that you and anyone else who is regularly in your home may need to reach. You can also include the location of other important items like utility shut offs and fire extinguishers.
There is no doubt in my mind that every household can benefit from Housepad app.
I hope you will join our beta test and become one of our very first users.
