Now, back to one of our favorite rooms in the home. From confetti to candles, the dining room is every pro hostess’ center stage. It’s the place where you set the scene and welcome your friends and family to the meal you’ve prepared (or ordered and plated beautifully — we don’t judge). Through decor and curation, it’s easy to make your dining room feel personal to you.

Here’s a preview of what we deem to be the essential stuff every dining room needs. See how it comes to life in our book, Homemakers, when it hits bookshelves on March 3rd!

First time you’re hearing about our domestic tome of awesomeness? Here’s the 411 straight from the back cover:

The rules of homemaking have radically changed. Today’s generation is digitally connected 24/7 and often more focused on climbing the career ladder at the office than the stepladder at home.

But the home “maker” evolution has just begun. Thanks to advances in technology, tomorrow’s men and women will find themselves using new gadgets and apps to cook, clean, decorate and even manufacture everything from decor to clothing, from right inside their homes.

In Homemakers, Brit Morin, founder of the wildly popular lifestyle brand, app, and website Brit + Co, reimagines homemaking for the twenty-first century, making it as simple as possible to go from amateur to pro with easy charts, tips, recipes, DIY projects and tech shortcuts. Simple, beautiful and stylish, it offers the digital generation a wealth of innovative ideas and how-tos for a more creative life.
