Cold Minnesota Weather
Winter hibernation starts about mid-October for Minneapolis, MN, homeowners Mekea and Tim Duffy. With the short, dark days already in full effect, they’re hunkering down inside their five-bedroom, 3,700-square-foot home that they purchased new in 2012. But becoming seasonal shut-ins doesn’t induce claustrophobia, thanks to airy rooms with mood-boosting colors and crisp white walls (Super White by Benjamin Moore). An attached two-car garage doesn’t hurt either.
