Best of Madison 2014 Home & Lifestyle

Perhaps the most practical of our Best of Madison categories, Home & Lifestyle offers helpful recommendations on where to buy a lamp, drop off your dry cleaning or get your jeans hemmed.

It’s like thousands of your closest Madison friends saying, “Hey, take your car to Zimbrick, Wrench Auto Service or Collision Masters for some work,” or “You know, Underground did a great job catering my last party.” Or answering, “Oh, these fabulous shoes? They’re from Morgan’s. This gorgeous dress, these pretty flowers, this handsome watch—they’re courtesy of Karen & Co., Felly’s and T.Q. Diamonds.”

But it’s not just the nuts and bolts of everyday life represented here. No way! There’s room for fun, too. Wondering where to get a great gift, a killer CD, a good read or a new tattoo? Best of Madison voters have you covered.

Want to check out for a night—and into a local hotel or bed and breakfast? Our results reveal six lovely options. Need a little pampering? We’ve got the top picks in spas, hair salons, barber shops and nail salons.

See, it’s all about learning from others to make your life a little easier and a lot more pleasant. – Katie Vaughn
