The summer months often are associated with humid malaise, but not so at CUE.

 Instead of featuring a single abode in this month's home feature, we focus on the dwelling that matters most to you — your home. We spoke to four local designers who give advice about how to make the most of your space. Now it's time to get to work.

 Tassels are trending here, there and everywhere, and CUE showcases a few of our favorite designs.  

 It's almost Mother's Day and our shopping guide suggests great gifts. Remember, there are experiential gifts as well. Get gussied up in your Sunday best and take mom, grandma nanny and auntie out to one of the fabulous brunches New Orleans' restaurants have to offer.

 We chat with Dr. Scharmaine Lawson-Baker, who couldn't find the book she wanted to read to her daughter, so she created one. Similarly, Mariesa Strangos (a physical therapist cum yoga instructor) created her own line of athletic apparel that combines the two things she loves most: fitness and New Orleans (paradox, no?).

 Finally, Emily Shaya (yes — a relation to that Shaya) holds her own in the kitchen, in entrepreneurship and on the dance floor as she tells us about the Ogden Museum's Magnolia Ball. Who says summer is the time to slow down?

 Yours in peace, love and snowball-print yoga pants, Katherine M. Johnson
