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: 56 Spaces Decorated with Giraffes

I think the first time I really noticed a giraffe from a design perspective (besides when I was at the zoo), was almost three years ago when my friend’s baby was chewing on a rubber one. You know it—the ubiquitous Sophie the Giraffe Teether by Vulli. (If you’re not up on tot stuff, guarantee you’ll notice one tomorrow.) When Martha Stewart shared the cover of the September issue with a practically life sized stuffed giraffe in her grandchild’s nursery, I knew I was past due for a post. So, now six months later, I’ve finally pulled one together. My punishment for delay is your treat — I have over 50 images for you. I know a lot of other blogs have noticed the trend too, but I hope a bunch of these are new for you. There’s quite a few nurseries with giraffes, but plenty of grownup spaces too.
