Get the Look: 20 Almost Solid Color Rugs

Almost a year ago we repainted our family room in Benjamin Moore Steel Wool, which I detailed in a Family Room Makeover post. We hung different artwork as planned, but I never got around to choosing a new rug. Now that our older son, who likes to use the floor as a picnic blanket, is in boarding school, I feel a little more comfortable splurging on a new rug.

It should be an almost solid color rug, but not quite. It should have some variegated color, but not actual texture. The rug we have now is chunky and loopy, and I imagine the crumbs embedded in it could feed a family of four for a month. (Yeah, we’re gross.)

The room is a narrow rectangle with a slightly odd extension off one side and a bay window on the other. I’ve often thought about having a rug custom cut, but not sure if I can bear the expense. Here are 20 almost solid color, not quite patterned but not completely plain rugs.

Get the Look: 33 Marble Top Coffee Tables

Marble is everywhere. It’s leaped out of bathrooms and kitchens onto living room furniture. Marble top coffee tables and marble top side tables are available in so many styles and materials— brass bases with black marble tops, reclaimed wood bases with white marble, blackened iron bases with green marble.

All these marble top coffee tables make me wish I were in the market for one myself, but we’ll be sticking with our vintage Heywood Wakefield lazy susan coffee table that we inherited from my husband’s grandparents.

You, however, should feel free to explore.

ARTmonday: 12 Masquerade-Themed Artworks

I’ve never been to a true masquerade ball. The closest I came is a school fundraising auction I chaired with a Carnivale theme. I have a cute photo of myself and my friend/co-chair, artist Lee Essex Doyle (you can see her Venetian interiors here), but I can’t find it right now. She invited me to a Save Venice masquerade ball, but we skipped it. Oh well, there went my chance.

I started noticing a lot of photography featuring people with elaborate rubber animal masks, which I’ve been putting aside for a later post. As I collected those, all masked figures made their way into my folder. So I’ve pulled out a dozen masquerade-themed artworks, including, a simple linocut of a mask sold on Serena & Lily; a woman masked in sawdust (not quite masquerade-worthy, but you know how I love what I’ve come to call obscured portraits); mod photos that appeared in the New York Times in the 1960s and brought to light by Jonathan Adler; a fashion shot of Kate Moss.; and others.

Enjoy these 12 masquerade themed artworks; perhaps you’ll find inspiration for your own year-end celebration.

Montage: 29 Rooms With Faux Animal Heads

A couple of weeks ago I featured Boston area designer Kristina Crestin’s own powder room, replete with faux animal heads as the “Room to Love” in the Boston Globe Address section. She had purchased a safari’s worth of these papier-mache animal sculptures from West Elm for a client, but when they didn’t work out she decided to use them herself. The effect is whimsical and rustic, and led to no shortage of potential headlines, none of which we could use. (“Turds With Friends,” “Ass Menagerie,” and so on.)

Antlers and actual taxidermy (real animal heads) are still a thing among a certain set, and always will be, but fashion forward interior designers  and design-y blogger types are much more into faux animal heads of late. Papier mache zebra heads, resin deer heads in neon hues with sparkly antlers, rattan steer heads, and plush tiger, elephant, and puppy dog heads are kind of everywhere, especially in well turned out nurseries. (Triple point score of the walls are black too.)

Here are 29 rooms that showcase faux animal heads in bedrooms, nurseries, living rooms, kitchens, libraries, and of course, Krestin’s powder room. Be on the lookout tomorrow for a killer (sorry) faux animal head buying guide.

Get the Look: 25 Bar Cabinets, Classic and Contemporary

A million years ago, we offloaded our television in the living room, leaving an extra roomy could-be bar cabinet free and clear. It soon became a convenient space, given its boxy shape, to store art we weren’t displaying, extra picture frames, and overflow throw pillows. A television has since taken up residence again with a new DVD player, specifically for me to watch movies (since I don’t know how to work the main TV with its fifty-buttoned five remotes), or currently, Friday Night Lights (OMG, Tim Riggins).

I had the best intentions; I imagined transforming the newly vacant slot, complete with pull-out shelf, into a stylish home bar cabinet for my husband. I thought about it a lot, knowing it would make a much appreciated birthday gift. But no follow through from me. Instead, liquor bottles remain relegated to the upper cabinet of the pantry, with some of the more attractive specimens on display atop the would-be bar cabinet in a teal lacquer bar tray, provided by the lovely ladies at an agency for Absolut. (You can see my bar tray styling post here.)

So, woe is my husband’s home bar situation. Jon Draper he shall never be. But if you have room in your living room, you could set up a stylish home bar in one of these 25 bar cabinets chosen from a dozen of my favorite sources for modern and classic furnishings, including some partner sites. Imagine tucking one of these bar cabinets into an unused corner, complete with a shiny cocktail shaker, sleek drinkware, and stripey paper straws.
