my eldest, Teddy, just turned six, and the closer he gets to milestones—tying his shoes, preparing his morning cereal, building a complex Lego structure—the more searing his frustration when he falls short. As I’ve helped him learn to snap out of his funks, I’ve discovered how to better emerge from my own. Our mutual mood lifters: getting some fresh air, running, dancing to the earworm pop track du jour, or taking a bath or shower, since water is always a reset. This month, in HB’s latest Whole Home Project report, we explore how bath and bedtime rituals can fuel our productive hours and our happiness. And since we’re all more likely to care for ourselves when it’s enjoyable, we’ve added pages of shopping finds, including the best new pajamas (HB editors—present…

5 ways to go for it!

For Katie Brown, a bold approach to color has always come naturally. “At age 11, I was given carte blanche to decorate my room. I put a yellow shag carpet on the floor and wallpapered the ceiling,” recalls the TV host, author, and newly minted decorator. So when she and her family traded in their colorful Brooklyn brownstone for a circa-1900 Connecticut country house, Brown set out to transform it into an equally vivid setting. Armed with her trusty briefcase of paint swatches and a knack for finding thrift-store gems, Brown created rooms that prove just how livable even the boldest color combinations can be. Her family agrees: “When my daughters have friends over, they’re really proud that their house is a big statement!” 1 Riot Act “I knew I wanted to…

fashion designer tanya taylor

As a recent college grad who’d moved to New York to start a career in fashion, Tanya Taylor found herself in a typical 20-something dilemma: She had plenty of time to decorate her apartment but not much of a budget. “I loved art but couldn’t really buy any,” recalls the Toronto native. “I didn’t know anybody in the city yet, so I would spend my weekends doing my own paintings.” Now Taylor’s art is the core of her eponymous clothing line, featuring colorful, print-forward pieces that draw fans like Beyoncé, Reese Witherspoon, and Michelle Obama. Each collection begins with a series of hand-painted motifs, which are then translated into textiles. The patterns often capture the zeitgeist: “They’re an extension of what our team is feeling at the moment,” Taylor says. Her fall…

dining in style

LONDON CLAY 244 FARROW & BALL “I used this color, a rich, complex brown that looks like milk chocolate, in a dead flat finish for the dining room of a San Francisco apartment. The tone creates a wonderful intimacy and depth in the evening and is a fantastic backdrop for art. It also pairs beautifully with shades of pink and blue.” JOHN K. ANDERSON ALL-A-BLAZE 1304 BENJAMIN MOORE “I love how this color exudes richness without being too stuffy. I recently used it in a pearl finish topped with a strié glaze to complement the orange batik window treatments in a client’s Long Island, New York, home. It was my way of bringing a little bit of Palm Beach exuberance to the North Shore!” KATE CHAPMAN TOQUE WHITE 7003 SHERWIN-WILLIAMS “Color can be very emotional, so I keep several whites…

here’s looking at you

Let’s face facts: With a photo studio inside every smartphone, snapping a selfie and scrutinizing the results has become a national pastime. Because of that ubiquity—or in spite of it—portraiture is back in a big way. More creative and edgy than what your mother hung on her walls, today’s portraits cater to a generation able to view themselves over and over, and one that wants a new way of seeing. How visionary is that? ›› PHOTOGRAPHERS ALISON GOOTEE/STUDIO D; GREENE: GALLERY HENOCH; ANDERSON-STALEY: CATHERINE EDELMAN GALLERY, CHICAGO. FOR MORE DETAILS, SEE RESOURCES…
