New Year’s Eve. It’s a time for reflection, setting goals for the future, and for getting down on the dance floor!

Whether you’re hitting a club in the city or staying in with your closest friends, you need the perfect soundtrack to shed the year away and start the next one with a bang. There are infinite choices of tunes to pump through the speakers, but some are tailor-made for the midnight vibe.

Take Prince’s ’1999′ for instance. Remember when it really was 1999? No song was played louder. But there’s no doubt that even now, that spirit of the song is fitting at the close of every year. It’s also great to have a groove with lyrics that can pump you up for the year to come, like the feathered-haired Journey’s classic ‘Don’t Stop Believin’.

The New and Improved Apartment Therapy Classifieds

The New and Improved Apartment Therapy Classifieds

We are super excited to announce the relaunch of the Apartment Therapy Classifieds powered by Krrb. After its launch in 2012, the classifieds became the go-to source for buying and selling furniture and home decor. Over the last year, we received a lot of excellent feedback from the community which helped us plan our roadmap.

As we made incremental improvements, we were secretly hard at work on a complete rebuild of Krrb from the ground up. A couple months ago the all-new Krrb saw the light of day with the successful launch of the Chicago Magazine Classifieds and this week we’ve brought all the goodness over to Apartment Therapy.

Here’s a list of all the improvements

We have such a fascination with headboards. If eyebrows are the frames to our eyes, then headboards are the frames to the bed. Heck, they even make our beds look lovely even when we forget to make them in the morning
