recently, I saw the term self-investment used instead of self-improvement—and I liked the ring of it. The latter is a chore, the former a treat, and yet the outcome is the same: better living, plain and simple. I’m passionate about design, but I also fiercely believe that it’s a means to a greater payoff. Sure, it’s fun to fawn over color palettes and fabrics—and this is a good issue for doing just that!—but there are deeper reasons for us to feather our nests. HB’s newest endeavor, the Whole Home Project, explores these reasons, recognizing the home as a powerful tool for enjoying life in 360 degrees, all 365 days of the year. To wit: A thoughtfully planned kitchen can help you eat more healthfully. A super-dark bedroom can help you sleep more…

paint   dying to try

STARMAN PORTOLA PAINTS & GLAZES “The London restaurant Sketch Gallery made me fall in love with pink. Portola’s Starman is more subtle, less public-space pow. It comes in a specialty finish called Royal Satin that has mica in it, so even though it is a blush color, it has a silvery sheen, like satin ballet slippers. I can’t wait to try it in a kitchen with brass cabinet doors.” TARA SEAWRIGHT AWESOME VIOLET SW 6815 SHERWIN-WILLIAMS “While visiting the Art Institute of Chicago last summer, I fell hard for this delicate violet in one of Monet’s water-lily paintings. It was like a sweet melody standing out among the other colors on the canvas. It would be a perfect accent to a navy blue or charcoal gray, or as a splash of color within a…

Don’t Fear Going All-In Frank de Biasi is such an enthusiast for the power of plants— “They bring literal life to a space”—that he didn’t skimp on the greenery in the living room of his Park Avenue apartment. To create a tropical-garden vibe, he anchored the corners with arcing palms, sprinkled in short snake plants, and defined the area with a philodendron climbing a screen. Combined with the room’s floral prints and bold strokes of color, “it’s an escape from the city’s drab grayness.” Know the Limitations For the foyer of a Los Angeles home, Peter Dunham chose boxwood— the classic garden shrub—for its low, compact shape: “In this busy entry, anything tall would be intrusive.” Set in a rustic terracotta pot and pruned into a ball to echo the circles on the…
