At Apartment Therapy, our community of readers is our richest and most vital asset. The whole mission of our company is to help our readers make their homes more beautiful, organized and healthy. So nothing is more exciting for us than to actually be part of a reader's process of improving their home. This summer, we partnered with Glidden Paint to help three Apartment Therapy readers who rent their homes. The goal was to help these renters confront the challenges of their spaces, personalizing their rentals so they felt like home. We loved the opportunity to help, and we're thrilled with the outcomes.
Name:Eliza Challenge: Trouble Deciding on a Color Color: Glidden Paint Sea Spray Eliza wanted to keep her apartment sophisticated, and wanted to add color without adding a sense of clutter. She chose an airy, nuanced blue and painted two walls in her living room.
Name:Lisa Challenge: Make her rental feel like home Color: Glidden Paint Very Berry The walls in Lisa's home were white, but she loves vibrant colors! It was time to bring her home in line with her personality. Lisa chose a vivid raspberry color for her small foyer, creating a dramatic entrance that makes her happy every day!
Name:Cassandra Challenge: Replacing someone else's color choice Color: Glidden Paint Dolphin Grey Cassandra's bedroom had been newly painted a dusty yellow when she moved in a few years ago, and as time went on it got harder and harder to live with a color she didn't like. Opting for a cool grey to replace the yellow, Cassandra now has a serenely crisp bedroom that she truly loves.
