Famously chic fashion designer Carly Cushnie dresses her home as elegantly as she does her customers. The thirty-seven-year-old mom of two’s Brooklyn brownstone is the designated headquarters for boozy friend dinners and intimate backyard Sunday brunches, and her party-throwing tips are next-level, from what to cook and how to set the table to making sure no one’s caught wearing socks with holes in them.
Love your bed and every aspect of your life—sleep, mood, skin, sex, navigating work and relationships—vastly improves. “One of the best parts of the day is the time I have to myself before going to sleep,” says Missy Tannen, cofounder and chief designer of the luxury Fair Trade–certified bedding company Boll & Branch. “I wash my face, maybe watch some television—or I just lie there in bed with the lights off, loving that I’m exactly where I am.” Here, her five tips for optimizing bedtime.
Yasmin Khan’s experience as a journalist and human rights advocate gives her a distinctive lens as a cookbook author. Her recipes are exceptional, and the photography is stunning. But what is most striking about her books is the way she uses food to connect her readers to the people, culture, and history of the places she writes about.

Behind the old–New England facade of the famously luxe Mayflower Inn & Spa lies a fresh surprise: a Celerie Kemble redesign that combines influences from all over the world—patterned-tile ceilings, ikat-wrapped lampshades, botanical murals that crawl impishly across otherwise-proper khaki walls—along with an enormously airy, cutting-edge spa from The Well and epic bone broth (and an epic entire menu) from April Bloomfield. About two hours from NYC, it’s a place to unplug, indulge, and unwind—and it’s also a near-inexhaustible source of design inspiration.
Eating more plants is easily the tastiest way to diversify your diet while supporting your gut microbiome and overall health. Fruits, vegetables, and grains often have naturally occurring prebiotics, which will feed the bacteria in your gut.

Lately our food mantra has been “Yes…and”: “Yes, I’m going to enjoy my favorite foods because they are delicious and make me happy. And I’m going to try to max out their nutritional value, too.” Five of our current food obsessions from brands we love prove that enjoyment and nutrition need not be in opposition.
We all have the capacity to grow gardens, says Jack Algiere, the farm director at the Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture. And a kitchen garden is one of the easiest and most rewarding options. Essentially your own personal, at-home supply of fresh vegetables, herbs, and fruit, a kitchen garden can consist of a few plants on a kitchen windowsill, an easily assembled backyard garden bed, or something more elaborate. No matter which you choose, there’s nothing as delicious as just-picked, no matter what you’re cooking.
