In our new March issue, @marthastewart48 takes us inside her stunning home office renovation at her Bedford home where she converted her wide front porch into a comfortable, light-flooded study. ✍????✨ "I often hold meetings in the kitchen, which is also home base for my four dogs and two cats." ???? Not to mention coffee breaks in the kitchen for her staff and of course, cooking daily meals. ????"Two summers ago, finding a convenient new location [for an office] became a priority. As I looked around for a place, I kept thinking back to the beautiful, bright sunroom at my former home, Turkey Hill, and realized that my front porch would be perfect." After enlisting architect and friend, Keith Kroeger, they quickly assembled a plan. ???? "I couldn't be happier with the result. The entire house feels opened up. My beloved canaries are in here, and sing louder and longer than ever. And I have a favorite desk where I can write, make calls while gazing over the fields and gardens, and just think."

Canada approved the use of recreational marijuana back in 2007, prompting pot-based companies to pour cash into their businesses to develop growth and beat out competition, according to Reuters.

The Canopy Growth partnership includes Sequential Brands Group. Sequential shares surged 51 percent after the announcement was made. Sequential is the company that owns Stewart’s brand of media and merchandising properties. (RELATED: Martha Stewart Is A Badass And Don’t You Ever Forget It [Slideshow])

Stewart currently hosts a VH1 show with Snoop Dogg called “Martha And Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party” that debuted in 2016.

Although Stewart’s partnerships with Snoop and now Canopy Growth suggest the lifestyle queen could be into marijuana, she told The Hollywood Reporter she doesn’t smoke.

“I kind of get high from secondary smoke. I’m not a smoker myself, but the smoke is quite thick around the set,” Stewart said.
