the wait is over. it’s spring!

This year spring seemed to take forever to get here. (Remember when it was 30 degrees below zero a couple months ago? Hard to forget!) One good thing about enduring frigid temps: These warmer, more light-filled days feel even sweeter. As much as I like to hibernate in winter, lighting a fire and plowing through my DVR queue under thick, woolly throws, I’ve had my fill. Now the sun’s brighter, the long underwear is packed away in plastic bins, and it’s time to shake off the chills and do something. I’m what my friends call “a project person,” and that’s especially true in spring. If I’m not painting something, I’m rearranging, restyling, and occasionally tearing things up. Some of you planted tulip and daffodil bulbs back in fall to behold right…

wow! what color is that?

downpour blue BY BENJAMIN MOORE “I had these cabinets put into the den of a house that’s over 100 years old and has a lot of original molding, so we didn’t need more wood tones. The homeowner had chosen navy but at the last minute worried it would be too dark. And that’s how we landed on this amazing sapphire blue.” —Robin Titus, R Titus Designs, Chicago, IL glimmer BY BENJAMIN MOORE “A chevron feature wall made it possible to incorporate a bold sunflower yellow in the bedroom of one client who loves the color—a full wall likely would have been too much. I steered toward dark blue and gray accents for contrast.” —Evelyn Lee, Evelyn Lee Interiors for Homepolish, Brooklyn, NY cockleshell BY BEHR “This shade of blush makes me happy because it reminds me of the dahlias in…

add splash to your bath

1 playful patterns “This space had a clean, timeless look, but it needed a fresh, young vibe, too,” says Denise Davies, a designer in Westport, CT. To jazz up the classic white subway and penny tiles, she went with a dotty green-and-white fabric by Studio Bon for the Roman shade. Also unexpected: a mat with giant palm leaves from Urban Outfitters and dip-dyed Serena & Lily stools that can double as plant stands. 2 next-level mirror Hello there. “A large mosaic mirror brings presence and personality,” says designer Lisa Hilderbrand, who’s based in New Canaan, CT. The 29-inch-diameter stunner here is by Serena & Lily. Penny tiles, a trough sink painted Sunburst Yellow by Rust-Oleum, and a barn-style pendant add vintage charm—with zing. 3 wastebaskets that aren’t blah 4 soap pumps with style 5 bath mats…

yay let’s spray!

so-chic cacti 1. Spray-paint each potted plastic cactus a different color. Bend back the leaves (or remove them, if possible) to help cover all surfaces, including the pot and faux soil. Let dry. marbleized canisters 1. Remove the lids of the canisters and set aside. Turn each canister upside down and spray it all around with marble-effect spray paint. Let dry. glossy side table 1. Remove the drawer from a side table (ours is a vintage find). Remove the drawer pull and set aside. Sand the table and the drawer front, then tape off the sides and the interior of the drawer. Spray the table and the drawer front with primer. Let dry. 2. Spray-paint the table and the drawer front with two coats, checking the instructions on the can for how long to wait in…

anything goes with anything

pink + red The colors may have a rep for clashing, but a blend of several shades calls for heart eyes. Hits of moody crimson and dramatic tomato red balance out playful blush pink and fuchsia, grounded by a black sofa. A multihued rug ties it all together. chrome + brass Forget what you’ve heard—mix metals! Layering different finishes and sheens (polished, matte, distressed) revs up a room’s personality. rustic + modern Here’s stunning proof that you can pair a farmhouse-style table with mod tulip chairs and a futuristic urchin light. Wallpaper that looks like concrete (so cool!) adds texture and an industrial vibe that bridges the styles. floral + leather Flowers don’t have to be supersweet—combining them with leather elements gives them a little edge. Think one big piece, like this faux-leather headboard, and some accessories,…
