what’s your holiday style?

WALLPAPERTangier Medallion wallpaper in red, $116 for a double roll, wallshoppe.comMy niece, Addie, has a January birthday (this year she’s the big 1-0!), and as anyone with a birthday around the holidays knows, the day can accidentally get downgraded. To make sure Addie’s b-day has plenty of hoopla, my sister triples her baking efforts with elaborate cartoon-character cakes. I encourage Addie to pick a party theme, then suggest lots of ways to run wild with it. This year it got me thinking: Should I theme up my holidays? I could max out a star or snowflake motif on everything from wreaths to wrapping paper. Or trim my Christmas tree with all furry, fuzzy, and feathery ornaments.

wow! what color is that?

fort york redBY FUSION MINERAL PAINT“A bright barn-ish red felt just right for the farmhouse-y chest in my family room. It’s the perfect country red, no purple or orange. The amaryllis I put on top seems like it was made to match!”—Susan Handler, Saw Nail and Paint blog, Seattle, WAblackberryBY C2 PAINT“When a room is large and also gets a ton of light, it can lack an intimate feel.

make my guest room look 10 years younger

Homeowner Kathryn KaiserIf Kathryn Kaiser had to describe the style of the guest bedroom she put together in her 1921 Craftsman bungalow in Birmingham, AL, it would be “random.” She had hand-me-down furniture, travel souvenirs, and—against her better instincts—a dated floral bedspread with matching drapes. “They weren’t my taste at all, which skews more simple,” says Kathryn, “but when I bought the house, the owner asked if I wanted to keep them, and I said sure because I didn’t have any others.” Cut to five years later and, she says, “I still hadn’t gotten around to replacing anything!” That included a wall color she describes as “dried Grey Poupon mustard.” Just in time for holiday visitors, HGTV Magazine stepped in to create a guest haven with rich blue paint, Roman…
