Montage: Walk in Showers with Frameless Glass Partitions

Door or no door? There’s no question that a walk in shower is the way to go (nobody wants to climb over a tub), but do you do just a simple, frameless glass partition, or do you add a door?

I was just having this conversation with someone (though I don’t remember who), and she pointed out that it’s a lot less expensive if you skip the door, not just in terms of the glass, but the hardware and installation. There’s also the whole hassle of shower door seals.

A shower without a door is good for a smaller space. We used one when we renovated our master bath down in DC, and also in the guest bedroom on the Cape. You also need to consider the shape. We did a door in the master because it’s square. And of course, if you don’t like a breeze on your naked body.

The other option is to do a tile wall or half wall. Not sure how the pricing works out. I guess it’s a decent option for more modest folks, but it definitely closes in the space, whereas glass keeps everything light and open.

Here are 15 walk in showers with frameless glass partitions sans doors.

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: 26 Rooms with Black Leather Sofas

Quick, what’s the first association you have with black leather sofas? Bachelor pads? ’80s decor? The truth is, a leather sofa can be quite palatable, decor-worse. I wouldn’t have thought so, but it’s true. The trick seems to be using it in all white rooms, either sticking to a neutral palette and modern bent, with a bit of rich wood and brass, and maybe a kilim, or going Scandinavian, with pops of clear, bright color. Here are 26 rooms with black leather sofas that won’t make you cringe. And, if you prefer a softer neutral, have a look at January’s “Montage: Cognac Colored Leather Sofas” and “Get the Look: 28 Leather Sofas in Cognac, Tobacco, & Caramel” for shopping suggestions.

Montage: Pink Living Rooms

Contining with this week’s promised Valentine’s Day theme, and further inspired by my post of the month for the Wayfair blog, “How to Decorate with Pink,”  here are 20+ living rooms that use pink as the predominant color. Some interiors are done with pink accent walls, or even four pink walls, from pale pastel pink to hot pink; many feature pink sofas, which are especially fun in an all white room, but as we know I am partial to white rooms with color pops and Scandinavian style. I am hardly inclined to go pink myself, but these are definitely pretty in pink.

Montage: Cognac Colored Leather Sofas

We all know that a classic brown leather Chesterfield sofa can look quite dignified in a traditional library setting. Thinking of other types of leather sofa in rich luggage tones, one might imagine a Danish modern setting, or something quite Italian and sleek. But there’s an in-between. I actually wouldn’t have guessed that I’d find so many examples of cognac colored leather sofas so easily, and that they’d be in such tasteful decors, including Scandinavian interiors,  Brooklyn brownstones, modern houses, and bohemian lofts. These leather sofas mix as well with sheepskin as they do with kilims. Some are clean-lined sectionals, other a tad squishy. While most are in mainly white settings, many are mixed with deep reds, or yellow and green accessories. Here are 26 rooms with cognac colored leather sofas that are worth studying (and emulating). For shopping suggestions see: “Get the Look: 28 Leather Sofas in Cognac, Tobacco, & Caramel.”

Montage: Bedroom Sconces

We spend summers at my husband’s family’s home in Cape Cod, and recently got a little condo in South Florida for sunshine doses during Boston winters. That pretty much (most definitely) means the travel budget is depleted. We don’t, have never, taken a grand family vacation. By contrast, our kids’ friends have travelled to some amazing destinations during school breaks (Israel, Tanzania, Norway, El Salvador, Paris, etc.). My kids have pointed out that they’ve never been out of the country, and have asked for “a trip to Canada, at least” just to say they have.

Spending thousands of dollars for the privilege (?) of spending 24/7 with family is not at the top of my list. On the other hand, I too wouldn’t mind a trip overseas, and who knows, maybe we’d even all get along and have fun. We thought, if we were to do this, we’d start off easy, with London. (After all, until just a few years ago,  a family trip to Target was a challenge.)

Part of what makes travel hard, for me, is that I like a nice hotel. But that’s a huge budget-eater, especially for four. I was thinking about looking into rentals at short stay apartments in London. Does anyone have suggestions? What does this have to do with bedside sconces? Not much. While I was perusing one of those sites, I came across a photo with interesting placement of reading sconces.

When we built the house on the Cape, I installed slightly odd sconces in a guest room—ones that stick straight out above the bed. Not the best idea, as they get very hot and guests hit their heads when they sit up. That said, I applaud the efforts for trying sconces that go beyond the boring. Here are 20 bedside sconce ideas.

Montage: 26 Rooms with Wood-Clad Feature Walls

Today I did a roundup on Design Milk of a dozen contemporary feature walls. Here’s an expanded version of 26 rooms with wood-clad feature walls. The array includes large sheets of wood to cover walls, like the first one below, as well as horizontal and vertical slats. Some have a clean, smooth finish, while some of the feature walls are more rustic, having been created from reclaimed wood boards. Our contractor in Florida suggested that along with the plywood floor we want to put down, we should cover the main wall too. It’s a good idea.

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: 30 Kitchens with Kilims

I used to have a kilim in my dining room, back in the mid 1990s in a rent stabilized apartment on the Upper East Side of New York. My then boyfriend and I got it on a trip to San Francisco, and had it shipped back. It was perfect with our Mission-style cherry pedestal table by Charles Shakleton, and covered half the living/dining room. When we moved on, his brother used it, and later I took it back and moved it with me to D.C., where it graced the floor of my bedroom for a year. I think it may have gone to a friend after that. Maybe Sabrina? If so, she actually lives in L.A. now; I wonder if it travelled back there? Although my (very cute but vicious) cocker spaniel chewed a hole in one corner, the rug held up well. The geometric pattern was playful and young, but the colors lent a note of seriousness.

I’m not really a Southwestern or Persian rug person these days, but even so, I absolutely admire the way these work in the decor. An all white space is instantly warmed up with the rich red tones. Frank Lloyd Wright used them a lot in his interiors. The almost colorless (probably pricey antique) ones in Ellen DeGeneres’ and Portia de Rossi’s kitchen are an interesting choice too; almost like a more refined sisal. I also love how Anne Maxwell of Tilton Fenwick matched the kitchen cabinetry in her Brooklyn loft to the muted blue/gray stripe on the kilim. The juxtaposition of the wicker baskets and kilim with the clean lines of the cabinets and tiles is perfection. These rugs really do work with every style.

Montage: 20 Rooms with Surfboards

Since we looked at homes with surfboards propped up outside yesterday, I thought we’d go inside today. The owners of these twenty homes store their surfboards inside, where it functions as a design element. In the kids rooms, I suspect, the surfboards are solely decorative. Hey, my bike’s in my living room (and both my kids’ bikes), so why not a surfboard?
