Elevate Your Crib With Home Decor From These 18 Black-Owned Businesses

Reset, realign, and redecorate during this time with these 18 Black-owned furniture and decor businesses.

Home Improvement

I have officially reached level 5 of adulting and although I'm totally grateful for the family couch that houseguests from across the world have sat on for a decade, it's time for me to own actual furniture that I actually bought with my own money and I plan to spend my hard-earned coins wisely.

Big box businesses have proven time and time again that they don't know, don't show, or don't care about Black lives until it comes to the value of the Black dollar, and sis is tired. I am sis.

I've officially decided to ditch the department store and #BuyBlack when it comes to designing the living space of my dreams and thanks to the good folks over at Black Twitter, I have the ultimate list of Black-owned furniture and decor businesses that will allow me to do exactly that.

Generational wealth starts at home and IKEA is lit and all, but pouring money back into your community is a major flex. Along with The Juno Studio, who offers handwoven air plant hangers and unique essential oil diffusers, Yaël & Valérie Fabrics is also out here doing it for the culture with their high-end, historically-inspired wallpapers and home accessories.

If you're feeling inspired to reset, realign, and redecorate during this time, check out 18 business that will help you level up your space and be proud of your purchase at the same damn time.

The Myth Of The Sex Drive & How Libido Changes From Your 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s

No one prepared me for how horny I would be in my late 30s. All the elders in my life prepared me for random chin hairs, weight gain, and menopause but no one said a mumbling word about my sex drive. Something happens the closer you get to forty. I went from wanting sex here and there to wanting it all the damn time. Is there a support group for this? I can’t be the only one who has the sex drive of the Energizer Bunny. Upon my research to figure out why I felt like a cat in heat, I discovered several theories surrounding women and our sex drives–including one that says the concept of having a sex drive is a myth altogether.

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically.
