Montage: 20 Bathrooms With Contrasting Tile Floors

Hopefully you’re not too overloaded with floor and rug posts. I want to forge ahead with all the Florida stuff while I’m focused on it. Last year we had the pink-tiled master bath (photo at the bottom of this bathroom tile post) reglazed in bright white. Very cost effective at $600 if you don’t mind the all white grout and tile look, which I don’t. They did the bathtub too. (Maybe I can have them in again so I don’t have to clean the rust stains.) But I still need new bathroom floor tile.

Unfortunately, they recommend against glazing the bathroom floor tile because it becomes glossy and thus too slippery. So, while we have pristine white walls and a white (if not slightly dirty) tub, we still have pale pink bathroom floor tiles and a pink sink in a pink Formica topped vanity. (More on that solution later this summer.) I’ve been browsing for inexpensive slip resistant tiles at Tiles4All, Overstock.com, Home Depot, and Wayfair. Other sourcing suggestions welcome.

On one hand, I’m tempted to do identical (but slightly textured) white square tiles with white grout on the floor, for the simplest look. On the other hand, I love a contrasting floor, and a color or pattern could be fun, especially if everything else is a consistent bright white. The other thought is to do big pieces of a natural stone, like slate, for a durable outdoorsy neutral effect. I’m taking ideas!

Here are 20 bathrooms with contrasting bathroom floor tiles.

Montage: 24 Rooms with Cork Floors (Plus My Own)

The cork floors have been installed in our Florida condo! And the walls are all a bright, sparkly white. So happy. The cork floor is amazing. It feels good under my feet (it’s not squishy though, more like a pressboard with a coating, like you’d find as the backing of a picture frame, as unappealing as that sounds), cleans well, and looks cool.

I was worried that the 1′x3′ tiles would read too traditional, but the look is practically seamless. There are a number of manufacturers of cork tile out there, in different shapes, colors, and finishes, though I chose the plainest one possible. (I wouldn’t have minded a lighter color, but this is probably more practical.)

The cork floor has the funky, almost unfinished loft look of the plywood floor I had been contemplating, but is much better in terms of feel and durability. The price was very reasonable. They even installed new sharp-edged baseboards. I’m thrilled. Thanks to Steve Gee/Tiffany’s Flooring for doing an impeccable job.

Montage: Red, White & Blue Tablescapes

Every Fourth of July since I’ve been with my husband, we’ve celebrated with a beach picnic on the Cape., almost always at Corn Hill. He’s been doing it with his family and their friends and families for pretty much his whole life. We’ve brought a few of our friends in on it, who’ve brought their friends. It’s a really nice evening, and has a very small town, Americana kind of feel, which is of course fitting seeing how it’s July 4th and all.

It’s one of my kids’ favorite times of year, and not just because that’s the one day other than their birthdays that we let them have a soda. They love running around the beach as the sun goes down, and hiding behind the dunes with summer friends. I always bring tons of S’mores makings and dole them out once the kids have roasted marshmallows on giant sticks. And then there’s the fireworks.

Over the years I’ve collected some festive Fourth of July accoutrements, including a bandana beach blanket that I got my sister to make. We always seem to have an abundance of little American flags on wooden dowels too (maybe my father-in-law buys them at the hardware store… not sure). The newest addition to the Fourth of July decorations is a red and white striped tablecloth by LinenMe.

LinenMe is a third generation family business that makes towels, bed sheets, towels, scarves, and throws from high quality Lithuanian linen, which is natural and hypoallergenic. The company’s publicist sent me a linen tablecloth to try tout. It’s strong but soft, and has a really nice feel. I will be bringing it to Corn Hill with me on Friday for our Fourth of July celebration.

I played around with the LinenMe tablecloth last week before I came back to Boston for a few days. It would look great draped over a wood table too. Here are a few photos of the linen tablecloth with some nautical-themed letterpress coasters I picked up at the Kennebunkport Festival last month, plus one of these American flags, some dishware, and wine. (You may have already seen them on my Instagram feed.)

In addition to my mini tablescapes, I’ve pulled together a dozen other red, white, and blue tabletop schemes for Fourth of July entertaining inspiration.

Montage: 18 Rooms with Capiz Shell Chandeliers

I’m not ordinarily into the shell thing, but when I first saw my friend Deb’s Florida condo, with its sleek modern design and furnishings (which reminded me right away of the furniture in our house on the Cape), I was surprised to see a West Elm capiz shell chandelier hanging above the dining table. Deb is so not a kitschy, shell kinda gal. Of course, like everything she does, it totally works.

Since I am in Florida right now, I thought it would be a good time to round up 18 rooms with capiz shell chandeliers. I love how they can look glam, or beachy. My favorite is the one above the amoeba-shaped modern tub; it’s stunning against those green and gold mosaic tiles.

Montage: 16 Rooms with Rope Lights

Earlier this month I started blogging for a Southern retail site with Etsy like suppliers called Bourbon & Boots. My first post was “Nine Unfinished Wood Looks That Are Anything But Raw,” inspired by a great Oak Block Lamp from Tungsten Customs that I found there (and might need to buy). I’ll be posting every two weeks. The next post, which should go live today, is inspired by another light from the site, a Rope Pendant Socket Light with an Edison bulb, made by Wildwood Design Company.

Of course, it reminded me of the very popular rope light by Toronto-based studio Atelier 688, which I also mentioned a couple of years ago when I wrote about West Bridge, the trendy Kendall Square, Cambridge restaurant. I’ve included that image here, along with 15 other spaces with rope lights.

Montage: 20 Vintage Bathroom Vanities

I tend to skew towards a modern aesthetic and certainly in the bathroom, where function, ease, and cleanliness is crucial. A year ago (it feels like yesterday), I posted  Montage: 20 Bathrooms with Modern Vanities along with Get the Look: 28 (Mostly) Modern Bathroom Vanities, precipitated by my lamenting our atrocious pink and nude bathroom in Delray Beach. (Yeah, I know, a flesh-toned Florida bathroom is better than no Florida bathroom!)

There are so many modern vanity options—I particularly like this style of natural wood modern bathroom vanity that hangs on the wall. Of course, I’m always up for a classic white marble bathroom too. If we ever redo the Boston bathroom (my biggest home decor wish), that’s probably the way we’ll go, given the style in these parts.

 Today I thought I’d play with a more vintage look, at least here on the blog. Designers who favor an antique, country, or rustic feel, often use a chest, console, or other interesting cabinet as a bathroom vanity. While an old chest could be annoying, with sticking drawers and peeling paint, a console table with a shelf running along the bottom is a great idea, since it provides storage for towels or baskets, without being blocky.

Here are 20 examples of vintage bathroom vanities that still manage to look fresh.

Montage: 32 Brass Kitchens

Following up on my last shopping post 34 Brass Accents, here’s a roundup of kitchens with brass details: brass handles and drawer pulls, brass lighting, brass ranges and hoods, and even one with brassy cabinetry. Brass hardware could be a good way of freshening up a white kitchen. A lot of the kitchens here are black; while black and brass is striking, it’s too much drama for me personally. I would however adore a gray kitchen and would be happy to experiment with brass fixtures. I also love the way the brass accents look with the natural wood details on the island in the Brooklyn townhouse featured in Dwell. Have a look for yourself; would love to know your preferences. Also, have a look at my post on Lamps Plus, “5 Ways to Add Brass Lighting in the Kitchen,” which includes a roundup of some great brass light fixtures (it will be live at 2 pm ET today).

Montage: 25 Mint Kitchens

Yes, my prom dress junior year was mint. Fine. But mint’s made a comeback. (Nevermind I haven’t once used my lovely mint tote.) These 25 mint kitchens are a mix of old and new. Some use mint with a fresh twist, by combining it with black. Other mint kitchens are done  with retro spirit (hello mint Smeg fridge). For tips on achieving mint kitchens minus the kitsch, have a look at my newest installment on Wayfair’s blog, “Decorating with Mint in the Kitchen.”

Montage: 20 Rooms with Crystal Ball Chandeliers

I still have not gotten around to really thinking about what sort of statement light fixture I want for the living room. When we did renovations a couple of years ago, I had the electrician wire it up for something shiny or sparkly in the smack middle of the space (recessed lights and two vintage lamps light it now). The idea was I’d search and save up for a spectacular light fixture. I have long had my eye on vintage Italian crystal floral ball chandeliers like the one in the first photo below. Usually, especially these days, my taste runs towards the more minimal and contemporary, but I can’t get my mind off these feminine lovelies. I’m sure originals are way out of reach price-wise, but I have definitely seen versions of less expensive crystal ball lights. I’ll pull together a roundup of those tomorrow.

Montage: 30 Pretty Pastel Interiors

When browsing J.Crew the other day, I noticed an abundance of pastel products. There’s always a healthy serving of pretty pastel rooms on Pinterest, and given my obsession with Scandinavian decor, especially white rooms sprinkled with pops of color, they’re always on my radar. I also just put together a post on pretty bedrooms for girls for the Matouk blog that posted yesterday, for which I had to slog through many a pink room to find the gems. Anyway, pastel style does seem to be a thing. Here are 30 pretty pastel interiors. Love ‘em, or not so much? I like to look at them. Not sure I could live in one. Would definitely do a guest room in such a scheme. My favorite here is the very first. The combinatino of violet and mint is inspired.
