Martha Stewart defines the term “household name.” From the kitchen to the garden and every room in between, Ms. Stewart’s fingerprints can be found in all corners of domestic life. She founded Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, a media and merchandising empire that reaches millions of consumers in America and around the globe. Her decades of domestic leadership have changed the way generations of men and women think about their homes, putting elegance back into home décor, making entertaining stylish and reminding us that there’s no problem that can’t be solved with a can-do attitude and a little bit of PVA glue.
Ms. Stewart taught us that hard work and creativity are the most valuable ingredients for success, and that the joy of making something ourselves far outweighs the joy of buying it. From hand-basting a turkey to making our own Christmas ornaments, Ms. Stewart turned us all into domestic gods and goddesses, while remaining firmly entrenched as our supreme leader. All hail Queen Martha!
