big love for small houses

My grandma Helen Peterson lived in the same 988-square-foot house for almost her entire life—from when she was a toddler until she passed away at 81. She and my grandpa Tannis, married 50-plus years, raised my dad and uncle there, and hosted countless family gatherings because Grandma was by far the best cook. Built in 1900, the little white house had two bedrooms off the living room, one full bathroom, and a cute little porch. The table in the kitchen was always too big for the space; you couldn’t open the fridge door all the way without rearranging the chairs. But I don’t remember my grandma ever wishing she had a bigger house. Everyone fit just fine, and everything had its place. That’s why I totally relate to the homeowners…

wow! what color is that?

mint condition BY SHERWIN-WILLIAMS “When my clients asked for a vintage-inspired kitchen, I immediately knew I’d go with this refreshing mint shade. It scared them a bit in the can, where colors always look more intense. Once it went up, though, it lightened the entire space and gave the classic Shaker cabinets a unique twist.” —Maureen Stevens, Maureen Stevens Design, Austin, TX sunburst yellow BY RUST-OLEUM “I found this mudroom bench at an antiques shop, painted black with stenciled fruit—like an ’80s crafts project gone wrong. Bold yellow spray paint gave it instant coolness and energy, especially next to the dark blue and red wallpaper.” —Elizabeth Baumgartner, Little Black Door Designs, St. Louis, MO captured heart BY CLARK + KENSINGTON “The builder I worked with on this house thought I was crazy when I picked such a vibrant color.

my favorite room

my living room CHARLOTTE SMITH, ATCHARLOTTESHOUSE.COM “I enjoy how airy and light-filled this room is. It helps that my kids don’t come in here often, which means it stays tidy! The real star is the sofa, from IKEA—it’s my go-to spot for a cup of coffee. But my most prized find is the scroll art, which I found at a flea market. It ties together all the colors here.” my guest room JENNY KOMENDA, JUNIPERHOME.COM “Since we have a lot of white walls in our house, this greenish gray paint—Coastal Dusk by Valspar—looks especially cozy and relaxing. The color is also pretty with the lively oranges on the bed, in the rug, and in the art. I worked in a furry stool just for fun. I always want to duck in here for a nap.” my…

an unlikely adventure

Of all the possible vacation options, one state—often overlooked but consistently surprising roadtrippers and explorers—stands apart. With its magnificent scenery, collection of national and state parks, and one-of-a-kind attractions, the land of “Great Faces, Great Places” may seem like an unlikely destination—but it should absolutely be at the top of your travel to-do list. The town of Spearfish, a quaint community near the state’s western border, is ripe with opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, and rock climbing. The area also features some gorgeous waterfalls, each suitable for even the most rigorously curated Instagram feed. Those in search of local food and culture will find it in the surrounding Black Hills: an area as rich in beauty as it is in restaurants and breweries. Fans of wine and beer should make a point…
