“Home is where the heart is.” It’s a common phrase meaning that our homes are a central place in our lives—where we rest our heads, nourish our bodies and make fond memories with loved ones. It’s the epicenter of our worlds, where we start and end each day, and where we keep our most prized possessions.

This month, we bring you our Home issue, which is full of ideas for creating the best environment wherever you call home. Take a look at some of Brentwood’s unique architecture; we’re sure you’ll appreciate the various styles of homes our town offers.

There’s no better time for a little DIY project! Refresh your interior with artwork to create a curated look —for inspiration, we included a beautiful room designed by Viridian Skies Interiors. Or tackle one room in your home for a more dramatic update. See our feature with Ellen Sherwood Design for three different ways to style your kitchen.

We hope this issue inspires you to appreciate the place you call home—both your personal dwelling and our shared community—whether you’ve just moved or it’s a place your family has occupied for generations.

Here’s to home sweet home!
