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.

wow! what color is that?

downpour blueBY 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.

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 mirrorHello there. “A large mosaic mirror brings presence and personality,” says designer Lisa Hilderbrand, who’s based in New Canaan, CT.
