Montage: 20 White Bedrooms With French Flavor

Since it’s still freezing outside, and sheepskin, fur, and sunlight reflected off crystal chandeliers sounds really appealing, I’m continuing the week with more boho/vintage style rooms as opposed to minimal sleekness. While I sit tucked under my down duvet, ground level in Boston, I could do with some Parisian flair. These 20 bedrooms are dreamy, and tinged with a French flavor, I think.

Montage: 20 Vintage Bathroom Vanities

I tend to skew towards a modern aesthetic and certainly in the bathroom, where function, ease, and cleanliness is crucial. A year ago (it feels like yesterday), I posted  Montage: 20 Bathrooms with Modern Vanities along with Get the Look: 28 (Mostly) Modern Bathroom Vanities, precipitated by my lamenting our atrocious pink and nude bathroom in Delray Beach. (Yeah, I know, a flesh-toned Florida bathroom is better than no Florida bathroom!)

There are so many modern vanity options—I particularly like this style of natural wood modern bathroom vanity that hangs on the wall. Of course, I’m always up for a classic white marble bathroom too. If we ever redo the Boston bathroom (my biggest home decor wish), that’s probably the way we’ll go, given the style in these parts.

 Today I thought I’d play with a more vintage look, at least here on the blog. Designers who favor an antique, country, or rustic feel, often use a chest, console, or other interesting cabinet as a bathroom vanity. While an old chest could be annoying, with sticking drawers and peeling paint, a console table with a shelf running along the bottom is a great idea, since it provides storage for towels or baskets, without being blocky.

Here are 20 examples of vintage bathroom vanities that still manage to look fresh.

Montage: 25 Fresh White Interiors with Crystal Chandeliers

Today, the topic of my blog post on Style Illuminated is turning on the romance in the bedroom with a crystal chandelier. Traditional rooms aren’t the only ones in which a dose of crystal can do some good. Sleeker spaces, especially those bathed in white look fabulous with sparkling crystal dangling from above. Case in point, these 25 rooms.

Montage: 32 Rooms with Hearts

I am totally not a believer in Valentine’s Day. Too artificial. BUT, I happen to have a bunch of photos of rooms with hearts saved on my hard drive, so I’ll share. Sorry it’s so late (again). Spent the day on an airplane. In rainy Florida now. Happy Valentine’s Day. xoxo

Montage: 43 Kitchen Counters + Islands with Stools

Now that Meredith & Daniel’s dining spaces are set, it’s time to choose the stools for the kitchen island. The kitchen is a large, sleek space with bamboo cabinetry and floor-to-ceiling windows along one side. It opens to the living room/dining spaces on either end.

While there are a lot of very cool counter stools on the market (stay tuned for a round-up of 72 tomorrow), we’re leaning towards the Bertoia. The simple design works perfectly in the contemporary kitchen and won’t interfere with any design details in either living space. Meredith also appreciates that they have seat backs, so they’re safer for squirmy toddlers, and they’re virtually indestructible. They’re a bit pricey, but we’ve only splurged once so far (on the Saarinen dining table).

Here are 43 kitchens with counter stools. Seven have Bertoias. I noted in parentheses the stool designer where I was able. If you can name any of the other ones, leave me a comment and I’ll add it in.
