We editors love our catch phrases, and it seems many of us wait all year long to tag our magazine covers with bold headlines reading “New Year, New Look, New You” or some version thereof.
While this issue’s cover doesn’t fall prey to these predictable buzzwords, the pages in our latest issue unapologetically embrace the ideas they inspire. Consider your home. Are the rooms where you live, dine and entertain all that they could and should be? If not, I suggest giving them a new lease on life and offer the following stories to prompt fresh changes, big and small. In Salt Lake City, pros breathe the past back to life with a 1940s ranch-home redo in the heart of the historic Yalecrest neighborhood.
Timeless design never looked so timely. Across town in Federal Heights, a boldly remodeled 1920s Foursquare-style house opens its doors to a surprisingly modern interior, and, in Old Town Park City, a tiny 1904 cottage gets a white-hot (and white-hued) overhaul. If high-wattage color turns you on, dig into the snowbound mountain getaway, in which vibrant hues and bold details enliven each and every room.
Crave a little contrast? Tour the hillside St. George home, in which a light-and-dark palette and clean lines drive the dwelling’s dynamic design. Need more? Check out our features on a Scandi-inspired dinner party, a leave-winter-behind escape to St. Lucia, and our picks of fresh finds for you and your rooms. The entire issue promises to help you see your home in new light.
