Montage: 34 Rooms with Art on Bookshelf Fronts

By now you know we have a lot of artwork. We’ve been diligent about hanging, but there are plenty of pieces propped against the wall, and worse, hiding in cabinets and behind furniture, but in some cases we’ve gotten creative. While we haven’t hung art on the fronts of our built in bookshelves, I did recently grab a hammer and nail to hang a lovely nude drawing by Chaim Gross on the frame of the bay window in the living room. I love the way it adds a touch of color and movement to an otherwise bland surface. (The blinds have got to go.)

In related news, my second blog post for Wayfair went live today: “8 Ways to Display Art.” Today’s post is taken from tip #6: Be Brave with Bookshelves. Here are 34 rooms that do just that. Would you try it? Here’s a secret. . . we mounted our flat screen television to the bookshelves in the family room. Didn’t think the shelves would still be functional, but they’re actually fine for DVDs.

Carrot Currency: 10 Pairs of Havaianas with Rooms to Match

Earlier this week an ad buyer emailed looking for placement for a “beach footwear” client. That’d be Havaianas. Recalling the popularity of the  20 Spring Shoes & 15 Rooms to Match post I did back in March, I thought you’d be game for another. That, and I’m off to Delray Beach for two weeks in December, so I figured I could get a jump on outfitting my feet. Which reminds me, I bought the cutest pair of bright skinny, cropped jeans at J.Crew on Monday.

Montage: 28 Red, White, and Blue Rooms

Red, white, and blue can be intensely patriotic, or just another well-devised scheme. Both work today—Happy Fourth!

Montage: 40 Painted Built-In Bookshelves (Blue, Green, Black, Yellow, Orange, Red, Purple . . .)

I love the richness of the painted woodwork in these rooms. The tones are of course, much deeper than I would dare to go in my own home. Most of the time. A couple of years ago, inspired by such shelving, I actually had my husband paint the built-in bookcases in our family room a deep purple. It wasn’t awful, but it wasn’t great either. We’ve since gone back to white, with taupey greige walls, compliments of the whole family room re-do. But still, it doesn’t stop me from admiring the work of designers accomplished enough to pull it off, particularly Katie Ridder, who does it with great panache, in monochromatic and highly contrasty spaces, and also, Miles Redd. Which colors do you love best?
