try a fresh, bright palette

A bold color like fuchsia just invites a smile. Pair it with a pastel like light blue, and the balance is enough to make a room feel light and happy. “Putting together colors like these is an interesting way to make any space uniquely yours,” says Sallie Lord of GreyHunt Interiors, who designed the room above. To find the right combo, pair colors with different weights or draw inspiration from a favorite rug or a statement piece of fabric.

uplifting page-turners

FEEL-BETTER READ At this time of year, many of us redouble our efforts to get a handle on what Lauren Martin calls “moods” —emotional inundations and overreactions to the daily struggles of merely being human. Pretty much all of us can occasionally get irritable when the boss delivers negative feedback, develop an acute case of FOMO when we see our friends hanging out without us, feel down about what we see in the mirror or drive home fuming after challenging visits with family members.
