I find the lull between the holidays and the beginning of spring to be one of the most creatively satisfying times of the year. To liven things up last winter, I took a screen printing class at our art museum in Des Moines. I enjoyed the scheduled, mandatory creativity and the accomplishment of learning something new. That said, at the end of a hard workday, I’d often scheme an excuse to cancel. Too tired. Need to do this or that chore. But I made myself go to class, and what it did for me was profound. What I invariably experienced during those creative hours is called flow. Some psychologists use the term to describe the part of the creative process when you lose yourself in the act of painting, crafting, sewing,…

{SCANDINAVIAN STYLE} H&M HOME Fans may love H&M for its hypertrendy clothing, but its new tabletop collection focuses on timeless Scandinavian design instead: Think clean lines, muted colors, and wood accents. Meant to make layering a table effortless, bowls and plates come in gray, white, and black matte porcelain ($3–$4) and mix seamlessly with wooden ones ($9) in three stains. {WALLPAPER} WALLSHØPPE This Los Angeles-based purveyor of bright and cheery wallpapers teamed up with accessories designer Clare Vivier for a collection of hand-drawn prints, including Hollyhock (above). Available in 11 colorways, it was inspired by a sea of the towering flowers she saw growing wild while on vacation. “It’s peaceful for a bedroom but also wonderful for a social setting, like a dining room,” Vivier says. Eight additional patterns share the same playful spirit as…

erica explores winged eyeliner

STEP 1 Map out a line from outer lashes to outer corner of the eye with your favorite liner. STEP 2 Draw a second line from the tip of wing to the center of lash line. STEP 3 Trace the wing with liquid liner. Adjust thickness or tidy edges with a cotton swab and makeup remover. A liquid liner pen is nonnegotiable if you want to pull off the season’s most popular eye makeup trick—the wing, also known as a cat eye. But I’m intimidated by liquid liner’s crisp precision and budgeproof pigment. My comfort zone is shadow blended over gel or pencil. I doubt I’m the only one, so I asked for guidance from Sarah Lucero, lead makeup artist for Stila Cosmetics. Her simple game changer: Start with your preferred liner formula (gel or a freshly…

COLOR WARM WHITES If you want to make a room feel cozy but still light and airy, choose a white so warm it’s almost pink, like the inside of a seashell. The blush undertones give the room an iridescent glow. Add more shimmer with mercury glass or brushed gold. BLENDING WARM WHITES with pale pearly pinks turned a closet into the comfiest sleeping nook for a little girl. “The soft colors play off each other to create an opaline effect,” says Nashville designer Rachel Halvorson. A brass-and-glass light brings sparkle. If you’re painting a warm white on a primed wall and it looks darker than you bargained for, don’t panic. It will appear lighter when the paint is dry. PEARLY WHITES…
