From the Editor

Winter isn't coming, it's here. There are snow flurries (snow flurries!)

Where + wear: Andrea Chen, executive director of Propeller

Dressing up for holiday parties
How'd you get started with Propeller? I was a volunteer in the beginning (from 2006-2011). I'm one of the founders, but it (had a) different name — it was called Social Entrepreneurs of New Orleans.

CUE's 2017 holiday gift ideas and where to find them

Help for the holidays: taking the stress out of entertaining

Tips for throwing your holiday party
At this time of year, our calendars are packed with time-honored traditions and cherished holiday to-do's. But there's one annual occurrence that inspires more dread than seasonal spirit: prepping our homes for guests.

Eden House locally inspired gift baskets

Especially Eden
Just in time for the holidays, housing and recovery services organization Eden House is launching its Especially Eden (www.edenhousenola.org/especiallyeden.html) line of curated gift baskets. Brimming with goods from local businesses such as Native Polish, Jambalaya Girl and Orleans Coffee and art by locals Frances Rodriguez, Emma Fick and Alexa Pulitzer, the baskets come in three sizes and make jazzy New Orleans-inspired gifts.

Getting small with she-sheds

Sometimes you want to go where no one is calling your name
Sharing a home with your significant other often means sacrificing some personal space.

From the Editor

This month's cover story features the Garden District home of Christa and Matt Schwartz. What I find most striking about the home's interior is all the light-colored carpets and surfaces — the Schwartzes have three small children and their bravery despite all the potential spills, messes and cringe-inducing "oops" moments is noteworthy.

Bon Vivant New Orleans offers creative lighting

As an environmental health and safety inspector, part of Drue Deshotels' day job is avoiding waste. So, when he began collecting cigar boxes a few months ago, it was his mission to find a way to repurpose a disposable product.
