Montage: 32 Rooms with Hearts

I am totally not a believer in Valentine’s Day. Too artificial. BUT, I happen to have a bunch of photos of rooms with hearts saved on my hard drive, so I’ll share. Sorry it’s so late (again). Spent the day on an airplane. In rainy Florida now. Happy Valentine’s Day. xoxo

Carrot Currency: 10 Pairs of Havaianas with Rooms to Match

Earlier this week an ad buyer emailed looking for placement for a “beach footwear” client. That’d be Havaianas. Recalling the popularity of the  20 Spring Shoes & 15 Rooms to Match post I did back in March, I thought you’d be game for another. That, and I’m off to Delray Beach for two weeks in December, so I figured I could get a jump on outfitting my feet. Which reminds me, I bought the cutest pair of bright skinny, cropped jeans at J.Crew on Monday.

Montage: 45 Rooms with Sculptures (Plus My Own)


My husband and I have quite a bit of art—oil paintings, drawings, watercolors, pastels, photography—but not much in the way of sculpture. In fact, he said last week we should consider adding some to our collection. (OK!) We have a few pieces, which I’ve included photos of here, and at the end of the post. The above image (next to the Cynthia Packard) shows a little sculpture that my son made. (Most of you know I never gush about my kids, so indulge me this time.)

Boston sculptor/potter Steve Murphy has a daughter my sons’ age, so they’ve been treated to a special pottery-making sessions. Mercifully, Steve has the kids finish with a green glaze, so the clay  emerges from the kiln resembling patina-ed bronzes. My favorite is an abstract from the preschool years. (Subsequent years’ attempts at representational pieces were not quite so successful.) It’s been on our mantle for years, not out of misplaced maternal pride, but because I rather like it. (Aesthetics prevail around here.)

Here’s a shot of my bedroom bookshelf. (Excuse the low brow reading material.) The pieces aren’t exactly artfully arranged, but a few are quite special. Starting from the left:  black & white flower ‘Fusion Foto Bloc’ by Debbie Krim purchased at her SoWa studio; one of my most cherished works, a Romolo Del Deo bronze nude from Berta Walker Gallery in Provincetown, a holiday gift from my mother-in-law because I’ve always admired hers. Another gift from my mother-in-law, a miniature wooden Degas ballerina from the Met Museum gift shop. Her mother-in-law (my husband’s grandmother) gave it to her. She passed it down to me this past December. The two chairs prints I made a couple of summers ago after taking a class at Castle Hill. The small rock is a chunk of pyrite and the large rock on the right we found on a Truro beach. Finally, the outstretched ballerina on the right is a piece I’ve had for much of my life, passed down from my grandmother, who was an antiques dealer. It is bronze on a green marble base but don’t know anything else about it.

Now that you know plenty about my own collection, here are 45 more refined rooms with many spectacular sculptures, starting with a Dubuffet.

A few other shots of sculptures in my own home:

Left: Chaim Gross sculpture, a gift from my in-laws, It is bronze on a wood base, and very heavy.
Right top: A wooden sculpture of a mother and two children that I bought at a gallery in Wellfleet on Cape Cod when my children were about those ages, and always wanted to be held. It’s dark-stained wood. I can look up the artist if anyone’s interested.
Right bottom: A close-up shot of my son’s abstract clay sculpture, circa 2005.

Montage: 31 Chevron-Adorned Interiors

The cover of this month’s Elle Decor motivated me to put together a chevron montage. It’s funny, because the chevron in this photo is just one element of a room loaded with pictures, yet its boldness pushed it to the forefront of my mind.

I love the pure graphic punch of the flat weave zigzag rugs, even though I probably wouldn’t make such a statement in my house. I think I’d find myself distracted, staring at it until I got that dizzying effect where your eyes go all funny. (Procrastinating is simply a way of life when you work from home.) But I love the way they look in photographs.

When I was about thirteen, I made my father paint a zigzag motif in my bedroom. I got the idea from a sitcom called “Too Close For Comfort,” (anyone remember that?) in which one of the daughter’s room had this funky stripe painted around her room. I simply had to have that look. I took liberties with the colors though. My walls were repainted a bright, clear sky blue. The stripe, a sort of zigzag/vee shape on the feature wall, was navy blue. The pièce de resistance was the white comforter with crisp, multicolored rainbow, compliments of Caldor. The rainbow, cloud, sun ceramic mobile from my best friend Marcia completed the look. Dated, yes, but for a teeny bopper, pretty pulled together.
