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: 32 Kitchen Island Pendants

It seems like everyone I know is doing a renovation. Since I’m helping a friend decorate her new apartment in New York anyway, at least one other friend is benefitting from my newfound knowledge. Melissa, who actually lives in the house my husband and I gutted in Chevy Chase (she and her husband bought it when we moved to Boston), has recently purchased a new (larger!) abode. This week is her family’s yearly Cape visit. We spent yesterday morning perusing images of kitchens, trying to decide what kind of kitchen island pendants she should hang, what size they should be, and how far apart they should be spaced.

Three is a good number for kitchen island pendants (odds are always better than evens). The first and last should hang 18-inches from either end of the island. Split the difference in the middle for the third. As for diameter, we laid out different size plates at each interval on my own island to get a sense of what felt right. Of course, it will also depend on the shape and material of the light. As for how hight off the island they should hang, we didn’t get there yet.

Montage: 34 Work Spaces with Swivel Chairs

Now that my workspace has been relocated to the living room, I’m thinking of getting a new desk chair. The one I’ve been using from Hold Everything is literally falling apart. I’m uncertain whether to opt for a stylish dining/upholstered chair or for a more ergonomically-correct, but not as living room-y, office chair. I think a rolling swivel chair may be too office-y for my workspace (I’ll post a photo of it tomorrow), though some of these look lovely. I love the Eames Management chair, but at over $2,000, it’s not likely to make an appearance at my house.

Montage: 31 Freestanding Fireplaces

Although it hasn’t really been cold (at least in Boston), it is February, so if I’m going to post on fireplaces it seems like an appropriate time. I love the look (and functionality) of the freestanding gas fireplaces that have become so popular, especially the industrial aesthetic of the pipe. I don’t love the ones that hang from the ceiling. Some of these are probably wood stoves; some aren’t actually free-standing, but have a pipe instead of a traditional chimney. One’s even outdoors, which, admittedly is a whole different story.

Montage: 47 Living Rooms with Chandeliers and Pendants

The renovations are finally finished in our condo, save for a few odds and ends and two extra dining room tables in the living room. I should also get around to sourcing a living room chandelier. I had the electrician add a box and switch for one in the center of the living room, between the rows of recessed lights. I originally thought I’d like a vintage sputnik, possibly in brass, but now I’m not so sure. Obviously a glittering crystal chandelier isn’t my taste, and a Lindsey Adelman fixture is way out of my price range. So, what shall it be? I found some gorgeous specimens on 1st Dibs, but I’ll save those until tomorrow. Meanwhile, let’s look at 47 different living rooms with various options, from contemporary creations and vintage sputnik to lanterns and Chinoiserie.
