Montage: 47 Bedrooms with Upholstered Headboards

As I’m wrapping up the details on Meredith and Daniel’s apartment, I’m also sorting through my overabundance of images in iPhoto. In the mass cleanup are a multitude of upholstered beds. If you recall, the design process started with the master bedroom, because Meredith had a specific look in mind. Said look revolved around a great upholstered bed. We opted for a silhouette with gentle curves, white canvas upholstery, and nickel nail heads. As you can see from these rooms, there are so many different variations on shape, pattern, color, and detailing. Tomorrow I’ll round up specific styles for you to shop.

Montage: 54 Living Rooms with Gray Sofas

Why gray sofas? First, I apologize for missing two days of blogging. I took a quick day trip to Connecticut to visit a friend. A friend who has so much faith in my taste that she has hired me to decorate her gorgeous new apartment in New York City. You didn’t realize that I’m an interior designer? I’m not! This very loyal friend is confident that through my writing and research, experience overseeing the building and renovations of my own places, and years of absorbing interior images, that I can do this. Or rather, we can do this. It’s definitely a collaboration. And really fun.

I’ll mainly be choosing furnishings. The project doesn’t involve any construction, kitchens, or bathrooms. The apartment is brand new and will be delivered finished and pristine. We  will pick paint colors, wallpapers, rugs, and furniture. The budget is similar to what I would spend if it were my own home, which makes it a lot easier. I’m nervous, but excited.

We’ve decided to go with a gray sofa in her living room. We’re thinking about a serene white and gray scheme, or white and gray with green accents. The dining room is in the same space, so we can play with that too. I’m sure I’ll be treating you to a lot of posts inspired by our deliberations and eventual decisions.

Montage: 47 Coffee/Cocktail Tables

Now that our living room is habitable again (aside from the two extra dining tables taking up half the space), I’ve decided to try out the Heywood-Wakefield coffee table with revolving top that we salvaged from my husband’s grandparents house. I had initially been thinking of an airy brass and glass piece, to work with the pair of atomic ball and brass-plated  vintage lamps from eBay and yet to be chosen future chandelier, but this one looks pretty good.

It works nicely with our Petrie sofa, which has similar lines to the original 1960s pieces his grandparents used to furnish the house. (Too bad our sofa is uncomfortable. Actually, it’s fine for cocktails, but not conducive to lying around with a laptop. Which do you think I spend more time doing?

Here are 49 living rooms with various styles of coffee table (or cocktail table, I guess the term is interchangeable). If you’re working on figuring out what type of design will work for you, these images will provide some ideas.

Get the Look: Rooms with Patterned Rugs

Here’s an assortment of amazing rugs in a wide range of price points. Some you’ve surely seen before, but I love them so much that I couldn’t leave them out. I recently purchased one of these rugs for our playroom-turning-family room. It has lots of colors, the pattern is more geometric than free form, and it’s not expensive. Anyone wanna guess? (There’s a clue in the Montage: Patterned Rugs post.) Also, look for a couple of designs for which you see the original and it’s much lower priced knock-off. (Hint: They’re both stripey.)

Montage: 45 Rooms with Patterned Rugs

I’ve been looking at a lot of rugs lately. I’m intent on reclaiming my kids’ playroom as a family space that all can enjoy, rather than a pigpen covered in LEGOS. (Does anyone really need an entire city space, complete with bay window, dedicated to primary colored plastic bricks?) As I was contemplating the best way to replace the dot marker and glitter stained sensible wool sisal (not that you could see it under the aforementioned LEGOS), my editor at the Globe asked me to put together a spread of colorful floor coverings (“Step On It“). Finally, I’d be paid to research redecorating my own house!

Like many a rug researcher before me, I fell hard for Madeline Weinrib Tibetan wools. And, the one I oh-so coveted, Lavender Chime, popped up on One King’s Lane for half price! Not so fast, it was still $4,000. (“Are you kidding me?” my husband not so gently asked. “You seriously want to put a $4,000 rug in a room where we’re going to watch movies and eat popcorn?”) Okay, not so much. On to plan B. Drag said husband to Crate & Barrel for an afternoon of rug and sofa shopping. That’ll teach him!

Anyway, here is an array of rooms using amazing patterned rugs. I love the way it punches up the space, with hardly any effort. There are two rooms with the Madeline Weinrib Black and White Endless. How many can you find with The Rug Company Swirl by Paul Smith?
