COLOR THERAPY MY HUSBAND TEASES ME WHEN WE go shopping for paint because I have a habit of reading the names of each hue aloud, as if I have to approve of the color and the words attached to it before I commit. And inevitably, I wonder, “Who has this job, anyway? Who gets to name paint colors?” I confess I feel a bit envious. I would have liked to be the person who considered the warm brown-gray in Farrow & Ball’s lineup and then dubbed it Mouse’s Back. I might have chosen something other than Relentless Olive for a green-brown Sherwin-Williams hue, but I heartily approve of Amorous for a romantic soft purple from Benjamin Moore. Of course, when it comes to color, it’s not just the mix of dyes (and…

Q IF NEUTRALS WERE OUTLAWED, WHAT WOULD BE YOUR GO-TO COLOR AT HOME? “Soft yellow,” says photographer Emily Minton Redfield. “The entire main floor of our house is painted that color, which functions as a more fun neutral since so many of our colors—plum, sage green, orange, navy—play nicely off of it. Not to mention that my designer dad covered my childhood bedroom in yellow toile!” Redfield got a shot of Technicolor inspiration when she photographed four bold-hued rooms for “Bright Ideas” (page 35). She also shot “The Paper Route” (page 21), “Special Delivery” (page 26). “Bohemian Rhapsody” (page 58), “Color Correcting” (page 72), and “Purple Reign” (page 112). Speaking with multiple designers for “Bright Ideas” (page 35), our guide to using color in your home, emboldened writer Amanda M. Faison to…

the paper route

For decades, native New Yorker Batya Stepelman dressed in all black. Then the former environmental justice lawyer moved to New Orleans, where the city’s vibrancy, music, and culture sparked in Stepelman a love of color. Now living in Congress Park in an 1895 Denver Square, Stepelman has made engaging with color and pattern her business. This past September, she launched Walltawk, a wallpaper boutique and consultancy she runs out of her house. Clients visit the historic home to pore over wallpaper samples and design books—and walk through real rooms (including the living room, pictured here) in which Stepelman has installed her favorite designs. Walltawk specializes in small, independent designers, such as Miss Print, Abnormals Anonymous, and Sian Zeng, who regard wallcoverings as an art medium. “Many people thumb through ArchitecturalDigest…

VISITING YORE IS A BIT like scrolling through your most stylish friend’s Instagram feed. Every vignette in the Longmont home-decor destination is perfectly edited and bathed in natural light; nothing feels cluttered or out of place. For co-owners Ryan and Savannah Johnson, who moved to Colorado after several years of working for national chain Urban Outfitters, the clean, pared-down look points to a larger mission. “One of the driving forces [for opening the store], besides owning our own business, was our experience in the corporate retail setting, where we didn’t like the waste we saw,” Ryan says. The name Yore, he adds, refers to a bygone era when things were made to last, the antithesis of our throwaway culture. The shop stocks everything from the ultrapractical (lint rollers and staplers)…

BETWEEN READING INTERIOR DESIGN magazines and scrolling through Houzz, everyone’s an amateur home decorator these days. But most of us still lack the vision (or courage) to make the bold design decisions that help a room truly pop—say, pairing a hot pink rug with chartreuse curtains, as Studio 7 Creative founder Kate Bendewald did in this Berkeley home’s living room. “I think Pinterest and HGTV-type shows give people the courage to do some things themselves, but maybe they lack the confidence to build a full package,” Bendewald says. That’s why, three years ago, she launched an e-design service called HappyBox: to bridge the gap between her full-service interior design clients and those people with the DIY spirit and, sometimes, smaller budgets. The HappyBox process (room designs start at $800) kicks off with…
