Ask a designer: I’m bored of my white kitchen cabinets. How do I go bold with colour?
Ask a designer: I’m bored of my white kitchen cabinets. How do I go bold with colour?
 

Beth Hitchcock

Like a crisp, collared shirt, the white kitchen is a classic. But I’m with you: White cabinets are so safe, they’re a little stale. The personality-packed kitchens we’re all ooh-ing and ahh-ing over and keeping in our inspiration files have two things in common, more often than not – a strong decorative point of view and colour.

 
First, give some thought to whether you’re a warm- or cool-colour person. Simple preference plays a role here, as does the size of your space and the quality of natural light it receives. Observe how the movement of the sun changes the mood of the kitchen throughout the day and try the exercise again with paint chips taped to your wall or, better yet, swatch tests painted onto poster board.

Property Brothers Drew and Jonathan Scott turn their design eye to your child’s space
  Property Brothers Drew and Jonathan Scott turn their design eye to your child’s space
 

Randi Bergman

Good things come in pairs, especially extremely telegenic twins who are good at building, buying, renovating and about everything else to do with homes. Such has been the winning formula of Drew and Jonathan Scott of Property Brothers, a wildly successful franchise of HGTV shows that centre around the duo’s various real estate abilities. Most recently, the Scott brothers debuted Property Brothers: Forever Home, a show that tries to help homeowners transform their existing homes through renovations and clever customizations, rather than flipping or moving as in their previous shows. “The result is a home that will serve the family for the long term rather than just the next couple years,” Drew says.

 
Engaging all members of these families seems of the utmost importance for the brothers, who just released Builder Brothers: Better Together, their second children’s book which focuses on a soapbox derby race.
