Let us come paint your room! We're looking for three readers going through life transitions in Los Angeles or New York City who want to experiment with paint color this month. If you're newly single, or you've just quit your job and are embarking on a creative venture or personal dream, preparing a nursery for a new baby, or newly committed to living "green" - you might be just the person we're looking for.
We're working with an advertiser to help our readers explore bold, exciting paint colors in their homes, and very excited to document this in video in a way we've never done before on the site. If you've been wanting to paint a room in your house as a way of committing to a life change, submit your information below, and you could have your project sponsored and documented by our team!
When my husband, my son and I moved to our new apartment last year, I envisioned the bedroom being a serene place where we could really unwind. I scoured Pinterest and home design blogs and fell in love with the idea of having a minimalist, white bedroom. After a few months of living in exactly that, though, our bedroom started to feel stark and, frankly, kind of sad.
Paint colors are like nail polish to me. Some people stick to a few tried and true, goes-with-everything signature colors, while others prefer to switch it up with the changing trends and seasons. If by any chance you're one of the latter (when it comes to paint, not nails), we've hunted down some of the best of-the-moment shades for your walls.
These IKEA hacks will take some effort, sure. But, you won't need any power tools, extension cords or impossibly tiny allen wrenches for these transformations. These are the sort of projects you could do in a few hours with some of your existing IKEA furniture (or hey, if you want to get wild and brave IKEA to purchase a fresh piece to hack, knock yourself out). You could enjoy looking at — and using! — these projects by tonight.
One of the things that Farrow & Ball is known for is its very carefully edited, strict palette of 132 paint colors, which, in a show of true British prudence, care and custom, is added to quite infrequently. Well, color lovers can rejoice, because today is one of the rare occasions where their colour card is updated. Nine new colors are being released in celebration of the brands 70th anniversary year and we've got them to share.
In a time of modern, matte finishes for everything from kitchen cabinets to cars, I'm ready for a little shine, aren't you? Put it down to the holidays, but I'm loving a luxe, gleaming finish on walls. Here are two very different finishes which achieve a similar look: lacquer and polished plaster.
Do you desire a dramatic dark wall in your home? Or did you take the leap and love your dark wall paint but aren't quite sure how to decorate the rest of your space so that it really shines? Pay attention to these four dark wall decorating commandments and you'll be a master of drama in no time.
Most of us know by now that you don't have to match all the wood finishes in your home exactly, but many of us are still a bit nervous when it comes to mixing lots of wood finishes in the same room. I spotted four wood finishes in the dining room of Jen and Kirstie's home; here's a closer look at how they pull the look off so successfully.
Kind of hard to believe this is the same house, right? When Kezia and Jonathan bought their home, they were seemingly stuck with a material they hated that couldn't be removed. Instead of throwing up their hands in despair and settling, they got creative and gave the facade of their home some major curb appeal.
White is sometimes underplayed as the default choice of colorphobes, but some of the boldest and most sophisticated rooms in the world have white walls. Maxwell loves decorating with white walls – as long as it's the right kind of white. According to Maxwell, the best whites aren't just a "blank canvas." He says, "I like the ones with a bit of depth and color." A good white wall never looks unfinished, "it looks intentional."
In honor of Simply White, Benjamin Moore's Color of the Year for 2016, we've combed through our House Tour archives and found three wildly different rooms that offer beautiful evidence in support of white's timeless elegance.
