Is it because blooming magnolias and baby lambs and Easter eggs are on the horizon? Or because the shifting gray-blue sky is presenting the perfect nuanced palette? The chill is finally behind us, and right now, the softest, most delicate, powder-tinged hues are looking extremely compelling–so much so that we’re devoting this week’s issue to celebrating the light side.

Above: Later today, we’ll be presenting a multitude of ways to use Muuto Dots coat rack hooks in our Five Favorites column. Here’s an advance look at Muuto Dots. (And don’t miss Julie’s Five Favorite Display-Worthy Coat Hangers and Izabella’s Leather Baskets Too Pretty to Hide.)


Above: Bunnies for the design-minded? Stay tuned for Justine’s finds. And, in the meantime, have a look at How to Build a Dog-Friendly House, plus our favorite Accessories and Toys for Cats and Dogs and their owners, too (pillowcases like these, included.)


Above: On Wednesday, Janet gets down to brass tacks with a 10 Easy Pieces column on wall-hung toilets–the pros, the cons, and 10 worth considering.  In the meantime, have a look at our recent 10 Easy Pieces roundups, including Perfect White Sofas and 10 Instant Kitchen Islands.


Above: On Thursday, Christine will be leading us on a tour of a 17th century villa in Puglia, Italy, given new life–and a potent sprinkling of pastels–by Alexander Waterworth Interiors. Click here for more of our House Calls–did you see last week’s visit to Michael Chabon and Ayelet Waldman’s Craftsman Bungalow in Berkeley?


Above: On Friday, Izabella will be presenting powder-coated metal lights for every room in the house. And until then, have a look at more of our Lighting posts–from How to Install Flattering Lighting in the Bathroom to a $15 DIY Wall Sconce.
