this year I’m making a concerted effort to take better care of myself, and I’ve stumbled upon the odd truth that cooking dinner—instead of ordering in—has actually become a shortcut for me. I do drag my heels about it, but once I’m in the kitchen chopping and mixing, I am—often for the first time all day—at ease. Throwing together a meal combines so many things I love: working with my hands, sharing with others, pretty china, shopping (hey, groceries count!). On a good night, I’ll be sipping Champagne, too. I listen to the news or a podcast (On Being with Krista Tippett is a mainstay) and sit down as my husband, Greg, lights the candles. And because nearly anything you cook at home is more wholesome than delivery, it suits our…

anna bond of rifle paper co.

Whether they’re adorning greeting cards, mobile-phone cases, journals, or even sneakers, Rifle Paper Co.’s vintage-inspired floral designs are utterly unmistakable—as is Rifle’s signature palette: pale pink, fern green, and rich orange-red. It was by happy accident that cofounder and creative director Anna Bond first landed on those shades when she launched her line of stationery eight years ago. “I bought some gouache at the art store on a whim. It really transformed my style and the way I saw color because it’s so vibrant,” she says. (That famous “Rifle red,” she adds, is Winsor & Newton’s Cadmium Scarlet, “right out of the tube!”) Since then Bond, who trained as a graphic designer, has developed more than 900 products and partnered with LeSportsac and L’Occitane, among others. And while rainbow florals and “anything…

1. OMBRA VELVET BY RUBELLI With shades ranging from bright chartreuse to inky blue, these plush cotton velvets from Italian fabric house Rubelli are on trend. “Every color is a very personal emotion,” senior designer Anna Candelu says of the collection, which she suggests for curtains or even wallcovering. rubelli.com 2. MONT BLANC LEATHER BY MOORE & GILES A trip to Marrakech prompted several new hues, including Tangier, a deep rose. “In Morocco, they use colors in combinations you wouldn’t think of,” notes Brooks Morrison, vice president of product development. For added impact, “tufting will accentuate the leather’s highs and lows.” mooreandgiles.com 3. BRERA MODA LINEN BY DESIGNERS GUILD When choosing colors for her new enzyme-washed Italian linens, founder Tricia Guild says, “we focused on gorgeous in-between shades, which resulted in a…

summer-house style

HAMILTON BLUE HC-91 BENJAMIN MOORE “This particular shade of blue is classic New England nautical. I chose it for the door of a charming cottage at the end of a historic wharf on Nantucket. It worked wonderfully with the salt-weathered gray shingles and white trim. I like the way the color dances between blue and green, depending on the light.”GARY McBOURNIE SOFT SUNRISE RD-W12 BEHR “If the feeling of warm sand between your toes had a color, it would be this one, which reminds me of the pale pink inside a conch shell. It just glows and radiates a feeling of peace and joy. I would use it in a beach-house bedroom to create an enveloping, soothing space accented by bright whites and lots of natural linen—excellent for relaxing in after a long day in…
