Montage: 52 DIY Headboards

As a less expensive follow up to last month’s Montage: 47 Upholstered Headboards, I want to share this collection of headboards that are re-purposed, up-cycled, and the like. There are headboards fashioned from doors, decals, mirrors, mantles, tapestries, chalkboards, room dividers, architectural elements, iron gates, pegboard, plywood, and more. DIY and v intage aren’t really my thing, but there are some good ideas here.I know this topic has been done, done, and done, but I hope a number of these images are new to you.

Carrot Currency: Pillow Spotting with Fabricadabra

Pillow maker Fabricadabra is a Style Carrot sponsor once again. I’m very excited to have them back, not just because it’s a local company, but because I really love the pillows. I have three Fabricadabra pillows on a white sofa in my own bedroom—two gray ikats and a green chevron. To welcome Fabricadabra to StyleCarrot (I hope you’ll stay a while this time!) I thought it would be fun to match Fabricadabra designs with specific rooms.

Montage: 32 White Rooms with Pops of Color

So we’re about to close on the condo in Delray Beach, and we’re scheduled to fly down for Columbus Day weekend. But other than that scouting trip to IKEA, I haven’t made much progress on the decor. Although the lines of the buildings are very clean, there’s a cathedral ceiling and a bit of white wood paneling. I don’t want to go too stark, if only because our Cape house is quite minimal and I’d like it to be somewhat different. So I’ve pulled a ton of photos of white spaces with bright pops of color. I want to be careful not to get too Scandinavian either. Perhaps I can strike a balance to achieve a Nordic meets Miami aesthetic.

Montage: Orange Aid


ven though it will probably rain, we are going to the Cape this weekend. Despite the dreary weather, when you step into (or even just glimpse) my younger son’s bedroom, you can’t help but feel invigorated. In celebration of his favorite color, today’s post is all about orange.

The color’s made quite a comeback since the ’70s. (We had an orange and white shiny vinyl booth in our kitchen when I was in elementary school, to match the orange and gold oversize plaid wallpaper. Wish I had photos!) In the ’80s, orange was seen only in Burger Kings. (The color supposedly incites hunger.) These days, orange is considered hip, and is especially popular for kid’s rooms.

I wasn’t being purposefully trendy. My son declared orange his fave shade when he was about three and grabbed an orange mug in a housewares shop, and wouldn’t let go. I don’t know how long it will last (he’s seven now), but in the meantime, it’s definitely his signature shade.

Here are a handful of other spaces outfitted in orange:
