Or reds, yellows, or any other hue that suits your fancy. A quick, inexpensive and relatively easy way to make your living space feel new is to give it a fresh coat of paint — and it’s a fitting time to incorporate a 2021 color of the year. Try Glidden’s vibrant, blue-green Aqua Fiesta, or the deep red of HGTV Home by Sherwin-Williams’ bold and elegant Passionate. Not quite ready for a whole new color scheme? Create an accent wall to sample a hue before you commit. City Mill offers a plethora of options, as well as all the supplies you need for a quick DIY project.

Too Cool for School

Whether your keiki still have non-traditional instruction days or they simply need a new homework area, a couple of little tweaks can help make learning more enjoyable. Move desks near a window and allow the tropical sunshine to naturally energize your little learners, then incorporate organizational accessories to keep supplies tidy and unnecessary electronics out of reach. Simply Organized carries various bins, trays, filing cabinets and more.
