OBSESSED WITH CLASSIC GINGHAM

PEACH & MINT

Reminiscent of melting sherbet on a hot day, this lick-your-lips combo blends the warmth of peach with the coolness of mint. Try balancing pale shades of each (this photo) for a breezy summer look, or pick a soft shade for the wall countered by bolder accents of peach and mint for a modern take on this garden-fresh palette.

AMERICAN FAMILY ROOM

After all, we've been writing about them for more than 75 years. But as is often the case with long-lived favorites (air-conditioning, indoor plumbing, Grandma), we start taking them for granted.

We surveyed a panel of readers to find out what's new, what's the same, and what it will look like in another decade. Pull up a chaise and grab the remote(s)!
