Montage: 28 Modern Pools

Having been down to Delray Beach, Florida three times in the last three months, I’ve become pretty spoiled about having a pool right outside my front door. It may be a pool we share with ever-bobbing seniors, but the water is 90-degrees and it’s right outside our door (Oh, did I mention that already?) Over the weekend, I was enjoying the gorgeous weather in Boston thinking, “I wish I could go for a dip.” So not happening.

Summers for us are devoid of swimming pools too. The Outer Cape is known more for its beaches and kettle ponds than manmade watering holes. But if I could have a pool, I imagine a modern pool, a sleek strip alongside the house. Other pools I’ve enjoyed include the chichi pool at the Delano in South Beach, though I haven’t been since they first opened in the mid-’90s (hung poolside with Calvin and Kelly Klein, Barry Diller, David Geffen, and other A-listers that Thanksgiving weekend), and the very simple pool at a villa I stayed at in the outskirts of Florence. Pure and simple, surrounded by grass, where I enjoyed the best Caprese salad too. Enough reminiscing and onto daydreaming with this collection of mostly modern pools.

Montage: 30 White + Wood Rooms

The white and pale wood decor combo has been going on for a while, but I still really like it. I decided to do our Delray Beach condo (where we are right now, for two weeks!), in that scheme with pops of color. So far, no color, but lots of white and wood. The CB2 Woody dining table designed by Lime Studio arrived (it’s half price now; not sure why nobody wants it, I love it), along with a pair of natural beech Family Chairs by Lina Nordqvist for Design House Stockholm. Plus we did a multiple hour IKEA shop and brought home four VILMAR chairs, two natural birch, two white laminate. The KARLSTAD sofa in white with birch legs will be delivered on Friday.  (I’ll post a photo later this week, if you promise not to retch at the still not torn up white wall-to-wall carpet.)

In the spirit of spreading the white and wood love far and wide, I also posted “Design Trend: White and Wood” on the Lamps Plus Style Illuminated blog, which I hope you’ll check out. But first (finally) 30 white and wood rooms.

Montage: 43 Kitchen Counters + Islands with Stools

Now that Meredith & Daniel’s dining spaces are set, it’s time to choose the stools for the kitchen island. The kitchen is a large, sleek space with bamboo cabinetry and floor-to-ceiling windows along one side. It opens to the living room/dining spaces on either end.

While there are a lot of very cool counter stools on the market (stay tuned for a round-up of 72 tomorrow), we’re leaning towards the Bertoia. The simple design works perfectly in the contemporary kitchen and won’t interfere with any design details in either living space. Meredith also appreciates that they have seat backs, so they’re safer for squirmy toddlers, and they’re virtually indestructible. They’re a bit pricey, but we’ve only splurged once so far (on the Saarinen dining table).

Here are 43 kitchens with counter stools. Seven have Bertoias. I noted in parentheses the stool designer where I was able. If you can name any of the other ones, leave me a comment and I’ll add it in.
