Sometimes, a wildly unexpected hue can be the easiest way to update a room, which was the approach architect Anik Pearson took with a vintage New York apartment that had its footprint and bones intact. “We restored it to its glory but with a modern twist by painting the dining rooms walls and beams a bold teal, filling in the space between beams in white, and running some chinoiserie-inspired wallpaper all around,” she says. Bob Zuber, partner, principal, and head of architectural design at Morgante Wilson Architects in Chicago, finds that tinted Venetian plaster warms up ceilings. For the best coverage and less splatter, Rick Wilson, director of product information at Sherwin-Williams, stresses the importance of using quality ceiling paint. His colleague Sue Wadden, director of color marketing, suggests going with flat or matte finishes to hide imperfections and produce a polished, clean look for any color choice. Otherwise, painting the ceiling is no different from painting walls.
The increase in pet perks in the multifamily segment led to widespread social media buzz and news coverage, which in turn, spurred many homebuilders to jump on the bandwagon, according to Chad Collins, founder of Collins Design-Build, a custom builder in Raleigh-Durham, N.C. “Clients started bringing me images of what they were seeing on Pinterest and Houzz, so we began to include pet features in our single-family houses.” He began asking new clients about their family pets when meeting them for the first time. “We ask about the number and size, and future pets they hope to get,” he says, noting that around 95 percent of his clients own a pet. “Pets represent a member of the family, especially once children are grown and move away.”
