what’s not to love about a before-and-after story? The visceral relief of watching a misfit space get righted, an ugly duckling turn into a swan. The feeling that you’re a few buckets of paint and a Goodwill run away from true beauty. (You probably are!) I’m a sucker for a white-paint-and-optimism story— there’s a terrific one on page 58—but my favorite makeover stories recount a renovation of the mind, like the Chicago couple (page 68) who went on a hunt for a new apartment only to realize that, if they saw a listing for their current place, they’d buy it on the spot. It takes courage and creativity to view with fresh eyes a house you know intimately. Here’s a tip: Take a few pictures. That’ll help you see your belongings…

The blue was grayed a bit to soften the intensity, and the center panels are the palest shade in that line.

The contrast between the dark, dramatic entry and the light, airy shop…

Pair Like With Like Judy Bentley united artwork and antique creamware in the Atlanta home of her onetime boss, designer Dan Carithers, by restricting the palette and relying on symmetry. “It’s a very elegant grouping because the colors are subtle and similar,” she says. Since a table full of pottery could resemble a tag sale, Bentley made sure that “the pieces on the right echo those on the left. The plates on the wall act as connectors, linking the collections.” Impose Sameness “Simple white wood frames brought uniformity to my client’s suffragette postcards,” says designer Ramsay Gourd. Treated like art and hung by the hundreds on one wall of a Vermont country home’s bunkhouse, the early1900s giveusthevote illustrations “counterbalance the full wall of bookshelves that are directly opposite.” Find Space Anywhere Have a spare bare…
