all set for guests?

Once November arrives, this happens: I think about all the guests I’ll soon have, and I make a crazy-ambitious to-do list. Paint the living room—even the ceiling! Grow an indoor herb garden to season Thanksgiving side dishes! Get new bedding for the guest room! One time, the night before my sisters arrived, I actually googled “24-hour monogram shop,” hoping to make a late-night run to get their initials stitched onto pillow shams. (For the record: No such place exists.)If, like me, you want to make family and friends extra happy but your enthusiasm spins out of control, here’s a keep-it-sane dos-and-don’ts list inspired by stories in this issue:• Don’t spend hours browsing “Thanksgiving tabletop” on Pinterest. Do have fun mixing (not matching) place mats and napkins (see page 99).• Don’t…

wow! what color is that?

denimBY SHERWIN-WILLIAMS“Once I flanked this living room’s fireplace with bookshelves, the red brick suddenly seemed dated. A deep blue totally modernizes it—and makes it the center of attention. Dark gray paint on the hearth keeps the focus on the surround.”—Samantha Klickna, Case Design/Remodeling, Bethesda, MDindia yellowBY FARROW & BALL“A goldenrod shade that exudes 1970s nostalgia, applied just partway up a wall, made this bedroom in a New Orleans apartment unexpectedly cool and contemporary.”—Christina Higham, designer for Sonder rentals, San Francisco, CAflameBY BENJAMIN MOORE“The owners of this cottage on Cape Cod wanted a bold color in every room, including the master bath. This superbright orange is the same shade as the lobster buoys you spot bobbing out on the water.”—Trevor Pontbriand, Aline Architecture, Orleans, MAdragon fruitBY CLARK + KENSINGTON“I wanted to…

“make our dining room look 10 years younger”

(BEFORES: EMILY KATE ROEMER/STUDIO D)Homeowners Jessy and KarimJessy and Karim with daughters (from left) Sasha, 11, and Surayyah, 13five years after buying their 1950 center-hall Colonial in Somerville, NJ, Jessy and Karim Fofana were still staring at the same hopelessly dated dining room set that was purchased by Jessy’s mom at Goodwill for $200—and leaving piles of mail and the kids’ backpacks on it…until they cleared it for holiday dinners. The table had served its purpose: Jessy used to run her public relations business from their old place, and it gave her somewhere to spread out. By the time they moved into this house, she’d rented office space. Still, the set came with them. “Our dining room needed help, but it was last on our priority list—we had major work…
