Best TV Shows
2019 was yet another amazing year for TV from HBO’s juicy satire “Succession” to the harrowing true crime drama from Netflix, “Unbelievable”, to the dark comedy “Fleabag” on Amazon. The critics at Vulture have picked their favorites here so grab your snacks and beverages of choice and get bingeing!

Best Books
If you’re looking for your next great read, you can’t go wrong with the NY Times Critics’ Top Books of 2019. The diverse list features this year’s National Book Award Winner and a generational tale set in Zambia while the non-fiction titles cover a broad range of subjects such as The Irish Troubles and the history of the Lakota tribe. Order a few and curl up on your sofa this week!

Best Eats
Food is near and dear to our hearts and we’re lucky to live in a city with a constantly evolving foodie scene. This essential list from the LA Times details The 101 Best Restaurants Hall of Fame: Modern classics that are essential to dining in L.A. Locally our foodie scene status rose with West Adams Blvd named as one of the tastiest streets in LA by LA Mag. And check out our blog for more exciting openings planned for 2020.

Best Interior Design Trends
We always like to keep an eye on the latest design trends and this list from DecorAid covers everything you need to know. Their key trends include natural elements (such as stone and granite), richer color palettes (think dramatic reds, statement pinks and lush greens) and black and white furnishings.

Best Movies
At the end of every year IndieWire gathers together film critics from around the world and invites them to pick the 50 Best Movies of the last 12 months. We were glad to see a few of our personal favorites made the list like “Us”, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” and “Joker”. Try to catch a few of them before the awards season starts.
