blast from the past

how the other half lives (and decorates) House tours are the foundation of our magazine. We’ve stepped into 202 homes, and we like to check back in every now and then. Homeowner Emily Yeates, above, painted a fab striped wall behind the door of her bungalow in Phoenix, AZ. “We outgrew it and moved but kept the theme,” she says. “Now we have black-and-white checkered marble in our entry.” team style-the-counters-too They may be practical—where else to put a coffeemaker?!—yet they still deserve love. Over the years, our team has decked out counters with cool crock-plus-utensil combos, cake stands that hold sugar bowls and olive oil cruets, and cookie jars that instantly cheer up any space. Super-duper easy: cute salt and pepper shakers and mills. (Check out Le Creuset for classic shapes in…

stop BY SHERWIN-WILLIAMS “To update this powder room, I put in a bold brushstroke wallpaper and pulled out an energetic orangey red for the vanity. Walking in always feels unexpected and thrilling, like spotting a cardinal.”—Krysten Ledet, @krysten.ledet.interiors, Lafayette, LA golden hour BY CLARE “The plain bookcase next to our front door wasn’t exactly creating a great first impression—until I painted it sunflower yellow. It makes all my plants and accessories pop too.”—Mary Interiano, @thisthriftedabode, Phoenix, AZ beach breeze BY VALSPAR tequila lime BY BENJAMIN MOORE “My client wanted something bright and interesting for her beach house. I went for it! Cyan blue and apple green are a quirky twist on traditional tropical colors.”—Marisela Contreras, @jacksondesignandremodeling, San Diego, CA watermelon slice BY BEHR “My parents used this color in their home and I’ve loved it ever since.

more is more

more COLOR A bright bouquet of sisal and raffia baskets enlivens the bedroom/playroom of a 7-year-old girl in Charlotte, NC. Designers Kelley Lentini and Berkeley Minkhorst (@houseofnomaddesign), who sourced them from artisans in Rwanda and Ghana, went for eye-catching hues that complement the teal sofa but don’t compete with it (the undyed patches on the baskets help). A variety of sizes gives them extra energy, along with the 3-D effect from overlapping edges. more DRAMA With only one window in the dining room of her home in Gainesville, GA, “I decided to go all in with a dark, moody look,” says artist Angela Chrusciaki Blehm (@angelachrusciakiblehm). Painting a console and the wall behind it the same rich color—Burgundy by Sherwin-Williams—gave the room serious impact. The monochromatic scene has a bonus effect: It makes…

a great deck do-over

in partnership with When I bought my house six years ago, what drew me to it more than the vaulted living room and the original hardwood floors was the big backyard. Half an acre and it overlooks a foresty nature preserve that (fingers crossed) can never be developed. It’s quiet and private, lush with oak trees and arborvitae. Sitting on the deck one evening prompted a friend who had stopped by for a cocktail to tell me, “Wow, you’re queen of your domain out here!” But as great as the yard was, the deck needed a redo. The icky red paint on the cedar boards was flaking, and the whole thing lacked cool features that I’d seen on the pages of HGTV Magazine and on HGTV shows. I pictured a new,…
