Style at Home: The heart of the home

We may travel to the far corners of the globe on adventures ... or put in long days at work ... but most of our real living is done within a few square feet in our own homes. This special spot is both our launching pad and our safe harbor. It's where we turn up the music and dance while tossing together Tuesday night dinner. Relax over a well-deserved glass of wine with our best friends. Get lost in a good book or binge watch our favorite series. For most of us, the heart of our home is our kitchen and family room.
