When I finally start to get dressed, it seems like every article of clothing I put on either doesn’t fit right or has a pull or a stain I never noticed or…whatever. (All I really want to wear is sweatpants, but unfortunately that doesn’t fly at the office.)

Good one. “Owen and I are the same type of student. At 13, he’s very studious and very responsible. He’s also a perfectionist, but it’s so cute because he’ll kind of go rage if something doesn’t go right. But it’s very cute.”—YASMEEN (MOM)“Everyone in the family has their own ukulele. We own four, total. I’m also a big guitar player. I have nine.”—SEAN Husband: Sean Wife: Yasmeen Sean: With the exception of her dad,…

A little guidance can go a long way toward choosing paint colors with confidence. Look to your fallbacks Though you might not realize it in as many words, you already know which colors you love. Clothes shopping, grabbing a bunch of flowers at the farmers’ market, admiring a…

According to interior designer Emilie Munroe, suggesting them throws clients for a loop at first, because they’re used to standard white. “But black looks so great.” 3 Improving on nature Think of natural colors with the volume cranked WAY up: really saturated tones like mossy greens and deep olives. 4 Ditching white trim Classic white is ceding ground to colors like red and taupe. Another take: Paint trim the same color as the wall, with trim in a satin finish, which creates a…
