Get the Look: 40 Modern Copper Home Accessories

At this rate I may tire of copper before I acquire a single piece. (Although I already own copper wastebasket I bought from the Martha Stewart catalog and have been using for years in our powder room.) A month ago I featured 24 rooms with copper pendants here on StyleCarrot, followed up by a dozen rooms with copper pendants on Design Milk, and a dozen copper accessories. Expanding on the copper accessories roundup, here are 40 modern copper home furnishings finds. And be sure to see my 20 copper picks on Houzz later this month too. Told you.

Get the Look: 31 Bird Home Accessories

I probably mentioned that I recently started curating product Ideabooks for Houzz. Yesterday I posted my newest Houzz Ideabook “Bye Bye Birdie, Hiya Birdie,” featuring a flock of feathered friend home furnishings. Playing off that, I added to the collection, with 31 bird-themed home furnishings and accessories, because really, spring will come soon. Meanwhile, add a bird pillow, bird figurine, bird bowl, bird rug, bird wallpaper, bird artwork, or even a bird toilet brush holder, to your decor.

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: 30 Guest Room Goodies

Today is my debut as a LampsPlus blogger! The topic is seasonal—”14 Guest Room Essentials“—in anticipation of holiday house guests. (Not that I have to deal with this, as we go to Connecticut most Thanksgivings.) I do, however, love the idea of creating the perfect space for guests. In my younger (misguided) years, I thought having a B&B in Vermont would be fun. Yikes.  Instead I try to make our guest rooms on the Cape light, airy, and all around perfect. I suppose one could run into the problem of visitors overstaying their welcome, but since I don’t tend to cook and dance any jigs for them, I haven’t had this issue. : )

Anyway, addition to perusing the pretty guest room worthy offerings below, click over to Lamps Plus’ blog Style Illuminated for a look. In addition to a product roundup, I featured interiors designed by Palmer Weiss, Nicole Hollis, Maria Lladro, and others.

One last thing . . . I just want to mention that I’m in super good company. My co-bloggers include Anne Sage of The City Sage, KariAnn Wood of  Thistlewood Farm, Erin Hiemstra of Apartment 34, designer Rob Levine, Allison Rosenberg of Deco on the Road, Meg Biriam, and my editor, the lovely Lesley Myrick.

Scheming: Meredith and Daniel’s Entry

FINAL  E N T R Y   SCHEME

Jonathan Adler “Greek Key” wallpaper in gray/white
Jonathan Adler  ”Queen Anne” mirror in orange lacquer
Bungalow 5 “Odom” console in gray lacquer
George Nelson “Pear” lamp, YLighting

West Elm “Crescent” bench in whitewashed ash
Timorous Beasties “Butterflies” wallpaper in frost

THE  P R O C E S S 

I started out by ordering swatches of about a dozen wallpapers. Some were great, others were unpleasant surprises. (Oversize metallic patterns on mylar—no thanks.) My favorite was Timorous Beasties “Thistle Superwide” in black on ivory; no surprise to those of you who read regularly.

Meredith wasn’t crazy about the more illustration-like choices, though eventually “Thistle” grew on her, and she asked about a less bold version.

I liked the idea of doing “Thistle Superwide” in gray on ivory, with Timorous Beasties “Birds’n'Bees” in the powder room. Neither one of us are huge bird fans, but the quality of the papers and the colors look beautiful together. Nevertheless, we decided to hold out for a swatch of the new “Butterflies” paper. We’re still waiting!

I stopped by Jonathan Adler on Newbury to take a look at some furniture and rugs. They had a wall with a console done in  ”George“. Fab!

Then it hit me: David Hicks “Hexagon.”  It’s fresh, but timeless. Daniel liked the blue colorway, but Meredith preferred a more subtle pattern, so I put this together:

S C H E M E  1

Lights: West Elm “Polyhedron” – Sonneman “Castelli” – George Nelson “Pear Criss Cross” – Z Gallerie “Glo” – IKEA “Knappa”
Wallpaper: Ferm Living “Ribbed” –  Kreme “Chevron” – Jonathan Adler “Greek Key”
Consoles: West Elm “Source” – Bungalow 5 “Odom” – World’s Away “Noho”
(Meredith & Daniel’s own octagonal mirror)

*  *  * 
S C H E M E  2

Meredith loved the chevron and the Greek key papers, along with the simple gray lacquer console. Many of the pendants I had chosen only used 60-watt bulbs, so we went with a George Nelson; they’re great functionally, aesthetically, and budget-wise.  Then I added  a couple of other consoles that look pretty with the chevron paper.

Wallpaper: Kreme “Chevrons”
Light: George Nelson “Pear Criss Cross”
Consoles:  Bungalow 5 “Parsons” – Bungalow 5 “Marco” – Bungalow 5 “Odom”

*  *  * 

I also suggested a bench for around the corner, since there was plenty of room, and with a toddler, quite useful. Here’s the “Butterflies” paper that we’re still waiting to see in real life. Love the green; perhaps for the powder room?  Details for the consoles show the lacquered grasscloth finish and nailhead detailing.

*  *  * 
S C H E M E  3

The nailhead console was too short, the white too white (plus, no drawer), so the glossy gray lacquer it is. With a pale gray paper and the console’s simple silhouette, I was afraid the finished look wouldn’t make enough of an impact. Although we never discussed orange for anywhere in the apartment, I couldn’t resist adding this mirror. She loved it!  Yay! Now we need to find somewhere else to put the octagonal mirror.

*  *  * 
S C H E M E  3

And finally . . . 

Do you love it? We do!

I love the quirky silhouette of the mirror paired with the clean-lined console. Its curves, plus that of the classic modern pendant, provide contrast against the pale backdrop of the bold Greek Key pattern, while the shape of the console echoes it. And the orange and glossy gray colors really pop. Can’t wait to see it IRL!

Shopping Trip: Provincetown’s Wa, Melt, and Simply Danish

Last night I picked up my friend Sharon Kitchens (she who writes Delicious Musings) at the ferry in Ptown. We wandered from the dock into the West End. On our journey we stopped at Wa, a little zen decor spot I thought was more garden goods than home furnishings, since the exterior sort of resembles a Japanese garden, but they had some great accessories sourced from around the globe.

Then I spotted Simply Danish, which just opened six weeks ago. It’s a spare space, with a museum-like display of modern home accessories from companies like Ferm Living, Stelton, and Menu. The photos didn’t come out that well, but here’s a sampling of their goods.

Montage: 40 Rooms with Maps

I have a definite thing for maps, though I never really considered going all out with them to decorate. I had a stamp collection when I was little. I wasn’t geeky, I just loved matching up the stamps to the right countries in my stamp book. And I loved looking at the world map on the back cover to figure out where all these places were. Randomly, my first job out of college was as the maps editor at a travel magazine, assigning illustrators to execute various styles of maps to accompany the articles. Later my sister worked as a mapmaker. And, most recently, my children bring me home numerous watercolors of maps they painstakingly create at their Montessori school. They’re actually lovely – perhaps I’ll dig some out.

S0, I’ve been collecting images of rooms incorporating maps for a while. By now, lots of blogs have done a round-up of rooms, and even Pottery Barn has plastered them on the walls for their newest catalog. I recently visited a friend with an old map of the Cape executed in an interesting way – the previous homeowners had cut out the landform and mounted it. The guy who owned the original home on our Cape house site also left one of these maps. I had previously deemed it too dingy for display (TDD), but clearly I need to rethink. You can see a picture of my friend’s below. Enjoy the others too. Hopefully there are a few you haven’t seen yet!
