when’s the best time for a makeover? now!

My first house was a small 1930s brick cottage. Little by little I updated it, but there was one room—a bathroom—I never got to. I was so intimidated by its old tiles, worn-out fixtures, and ugly lights that I just ignored it. I should have tried to fix it up, though. Later I learned that the sooner you tackle what scares you most about a new home, the sooner it truly feels like yours—plus your design confidence goes through the roof.

This clover color makes it pop. And it’s so fresh, like spring on a wall!” —Julie Howard, Timber Trails Development Company, Western Springs, IL calypso blue BY BENJAMIN MOORE “Since this homeowner is creative and fun-loving, I picked something equally vivacious for the walls of his home office. This shade of blue is super energized and a little offbeat—a perfect match.” —Orlando Soria, Homepolish, Los Angeles, CA forsythia BY SHERWIN-WILLIAMS “When this buffet was plain wood, it looked completely traditional—not at all what my client wanted for her modern home. Redoing it in a citrusy yellow made it playful and contemporary.” —Heidi Stukenberg, Lily Field…
