Who We Are
At MarthaStewart.com, we embrace our founder's curious, innovative, and boundary-breaking spirit and infuse it into all of our content and platforms. It's our mission to teach and inspire you to design the life you want. We believe the joy is in the doing. On MarthaStewart.com, you'll find tested-until-perfected recipes, DIY projects, gardening ideas, easy entertaining tips, beauty advice, and wedding inspiration. We'll also help you celebrate the holidays, keep you informed on health news, and encourage you to refresh your home with design advice and cleaning tips.
Our founder, Martha Stewart, is an entrepreneur, a best-selling author of 99 (to date) lifestyle books, an Emmy Award–winning television show host, and a creator of the first multi-channel lifestyle company, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia. She's been a household name for over four decades, beginning in 1982 with the release of Entertaining by Martha Stewart. The success of that first book ultimately led to the creation of Martha Stewart Living in 1990. She went on to create additional magazines, including Martha Stewart Weddings in 1995, and launch a successful merchandising business with products for the home sold at multiple retail and online outlets. Today, she works with her talented staff to provide trusted, timely and useful information to help make all aspects of everyday living a little easier, more beautiful, and more inspiring for her readers.
Our editors and writers constantly seek out what's new and exciting in the worlds of food, home design, gardening, crafts, pets, health, wellness, beauty, weddings, and more. Our editorial staff takes great pride in our work and strives to create original, authoritative, and well-researched content free of ethical concerns, conflicts, and misinformation. If you see something that doesn't seem up to date or accurate, please let us know via our contact form.
We uphold the principles of the Dotdash Meredith Content Integrity Promise including the following editorial policies:
As part of the editorial process, our writers interview relevant, qualified sources for stories, then verify all information and data included in their final stories. We strive to provide proper context and background information to help our readers. All stories are then reviewed and edited by at least two editors; we assess content for grammar, accuracy, readability, and relevance.
All recipes created for and featured on MarthaStewart.com are tested until perfected by our food editors and test kitchen for accuracy and clarity. If you have noticed an issue with a specific piece of content, please bring it to our attention via our contact form.
Our editorial team is committed to producing high quality, factual content. If there is a factual error in a story, we will correct it as soon as possible. All corrections will be clearly labeled as such and will include what changes were made and when. When an article is factually correct but the language is not as clear or detailed as necessary, the story may be updated without an editor's note.
Timely news stories generally cover a distinct event in time, so they are not routinely updated. Our editorial team consistently reevaluates and updates evergreen content to ensure everything is timely, accurate, and relevant. The date-stamp at the top of each article reflects when it was last updated.
If you believe you have found an error, please notify us via our contact form.
Our editorial staff adheres to strict standards for sourcing information. We rely on current and reputable primary sources, such as expert interviews, government organizations, and professional and academic institutions. All data points, facts, and claims are backed up by at least one reputable source. A cornerstone of our reporting and sourcing is to consider often overlooked perspectives from BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and women. Our content strives to serve all communities.

MarthaStewart.com believes in independent, fair, and impartial journalism. Our editors and writers are held accountable to a high standard of honesty and transparency, and our original editorial content is not influenced by our advertisers.

Dotdash Meredith editors and writers, including the MarthaStewart.com team, are prohibited from giving preferential treatment to any outside company, publication, or website based on their relationship with the person who authors or owns that resource.
