Get the Look: 36 Modern Trivets

It’s true that most of us have stone countertops that can withstand heat, but I think (preferably) modern trivets still have a place in the kitchen.

Not long ago I put a Pyrex baking dish straight from the oven onto our granite countertop. It was wet. The entire dish, salmon included, exploded. Seriously. Exploded.

Many kitchens, including mine, mix countertops, using a different material for the island than for the rest of the workspaces. The ship-like cherry wood countertops on either side of our stove are scorched from the tea kettle. (Not my doing.) I leave a cork trivet nearby now.

And unless you have have a marble-topped Saarinen tulip table you don’t want to be putting hot dishes on your dining table.

Modern trivets. Marble trivets, brass trivets, bamboo trivets, silicone trivets, copper trivets, teak trivets, cork trivets. Yes, please.

Get the Look: Modern Watering Cans

A watering can is one of those things you don’t think of having (or have room for) when you live in the city. (Or maybe you do, if you’re all green thumb-y.) A while back, I fell in love with a sleek, stainless steel watering can at MoMA (no longer available), that I received as a holiday gift. The long, skinny spout, great for filling vases around the house, is als, not conducive to city-size cabinets, so it lives on the Cape.

I have been thinking of getting another one that’s more compact for Boston (love the copper X3 by Kontextur, though the Born In Sweden watering can is more practical and comes in excellent colors.) I actually don’t have an outdoor watering can on the Cape, which I think I should get if I have any hope of growing anything this summer, which I kinda do. (Shocking, I know.) Here are 20 colorful, modern watering cans, for indoors and out.

Get the Look: 30 Modern Candlesticks

I don’t actually light candles all that often (though my boys think it’s fun to have a fancy dinner with candlelight at home), but I seem to always be admiring candlesticks. I should at least make more effort to light candles on Shabbat! No reason (I don’t think) that I couldn’t use some fun, modern candlesticks instead of the traditional silver ones. Here are 30 candlesticks that will inspire me (and you) to add ambience into winter evenings.

Get the Look: 28 Modern Bird Houses and Bird Feeders

I’m not exactly Ms. Outdoorsy Birdwatcher Woman, and mostly I find their incessant early morning tweeting an annoyance, but I do like the idea of feeding the little guys (must be the Jewish mom in me). And I love the new styles of modern bird feeders and bird houses that have recently become available.

I have a copper bird feeder I bought for my husband years ago when we had a house with a little roof deck and yard outside D.C., but we moved to Boston before we had the chance to use it. I hang it on a severed tree branch in our Truro yard every summer. If I fill it with chunky seeds, we get a serious influx of  crows, who then raid my sad little garden. (Who knew crows like cucumber?) Squirrels like to raid the feeder too. I’ve since switched over to a feeder that dispenses only skinny seeds, in hopes of attracting more pleasant feathered friends.

As outdoor rooms become more popular, along with clean lines and a modern sensibility, there have been more and more stylish contemporary outdoor furnishings available. Here’s a roundup of 28 favorite modern bird feeders and bird houses from StyleCarrot partners and other sources for your birding pleasure.

Get the Look: 47 Modern Fireplaces and Fireplace Accessories

Following up on yesterday’s Montage: 31 Freestanding Fireplaces, here is a sampling of fireplaces and accessories, both contemporary and antique. There’s really no excuse not to have a flame of fire—small tabletop models fueled with ethanol can be had at Home Depot. You can even get one that hangs on your wall. Interesting. I’ve had my eye on the minimalist tempered glass screens for our fireplace on the Cape, though I think I need a custom one since it’s raised a foot or two from the floor. I think I’ll concentrate on retrofitting a gas model in our defunct fireplaces in Boston instead.
