As soon as stores swipe the tinsel off the shelves, it’s replaced by heart-shaped boxes and all things bright red and pink. When it comes to Saint Valentine’s Day, there are people who love it, others who passionately hate it, and those who remain indifferent to the romance and expectations of the day. Admittedly, I have dabbled in the indifference category for several years now. I normally love any excuse to celebrate. But Valentine’s Day plans often come with too much pressure to be over-the-top extravagant. This year I’m taking a new route and looking at the occasion through a new set of rose-colored glasses. The day of love shouldn’t be limited to romantic relationships — why not take a day to celebrate the women in your life by hosting a Galentine’s Day brunch? We’ve got ideas on how to host an elegant brunch that your group won’t soon forget.
Ayesha Curry holds an impressive resume: cookbook author, Covergirl spokesmodel, TV host and mom to two little girls. Her latest business venture is one we can’t wait to get our hands on this holiday season. Curry’s new line of cookware launched exclusively at Target in October but has since become accessible through other stores such as JCPenney. The line is comprised of items available in maroon, blue, brown or stainless steel and includes an array of pots and pans as well as other fun items like a bacon grease jar and a cast iron skillet. When examining the line, it’s easy to see it was created by someone who loves to cook and does a lot of it. It’s evident Curry took the time to consider common cooking and baking struggles that can leave people frustrated. Each piece in this collection is as functional as it is elegant, and might

There always seems to be a point in the year where, while we enjoy our furniture and decor for the most part, it’s missing a little extra “something.” Now and then you need to try out a new material, pattern or color to give your space the pop and update it deserves.

As we take a look at this year’s interior decorating trends and which ones we tried in our homes, we have the opportunity to be honest with ourselves about what worked and what definitely did not.

Once of our favorite furniture pieces of the year: mirrors. Adding a mirror to your home can be beneficial for several reasons, not all of them including vanity. Mirrors can add light to any room and create the illusion a space is bigger than it actually is. They’re also a dream for anyone who wants to add a bit of
