Social distancing in the time of a pandemic brought most of us up close and personal with the way we live in and design our homes. In this Home Issue, we gain helpful insight from local design experts who highlight a few emerging trends for 2021 and explore high and low budget options to personalize your space without breaking the bank. We introduce you to the owners of a 100-year old bungalow in the historic district who give us the nitty-gritty on DIY home projects, share the humorous tale of the robotic vacuum cleaner and one house cat’s lack of enthusiasm for it, and trot into the homes of returning Horse Fever artists and what they’ve got on the palette for the 20th-anniversary herd. We also have the honor of detailing the lifelong commitment that is the collection of Black created art being displayed at the Appleton Museum of Art now through March 28th, illustrating a rich history and redefining the way African American art is appreciated, understood, and valued.
