Shopping Trip: Marimekko

I stopped by the Marimekko flagship on Newbury Street the other night. They were serving hot cocoa and cookies, and whipping up custom made tablecloths. (There’s a glassed in sewing booth downstairs where the magic happens.) Of course, with all the great color and pattern, and fab gift wall in the entry, I couldn’t resist taking a million photos. Tour the Marimekko store with me;  you’ll spot lots of holiday gift inspiration.

Gift Guide: Marimekko for the Host

I am excited that StyleCarrot has partnered with Marimekko again this holiday season for a series of holiday gift guides. Today’s gift guide—Marimekko presents for a host or entertainer—is the first. Pretty much anything from Marimekko is a delight. The modernist tableware silhouettes, even in plain white, hold timeless appeal, and the bold patterns effortlessly enliven a tabletop scheme.

Get the Look: 27 Black Home Furnishings

Since black is *the* color for decor, and I’ve done plenty of posts focusing on black decor, including black kitchen pendant lights and rooms with black walls for LampsPlus and black bedrooms for the Matouk Bedding blog, I thought it was time to do a roundup of black home furnishings and accessories. From black flatware to black seating, there are 27 choices, all with distinctive details or in interesting silhouettes. (Come to think of it, though, I may never have done a roundup of rooms with black walls here. . .  perhaps I owe you one!)

Get the Look: 30 Modern Candlesticks

I don’t actually light candles all that often (though my boys think it’s fun to have a fancy dinner with candlelight at home), but I seem to always be admiring candlesticks. I should at least make more effort to light candles on Shabbat! No reason (I don’t think) that I couldn’t use some fun, modern candlesticks instead of the traditional silver ones. Here are 30 candlesticks that will inspire me (and you) to add ambience into winter evenings.

Style Right Now: Marimekko Prints on the Street

Marimekko prints are bold and daring. I love them on my sofa, and in my kitchen cabinets, but when it comes to dressing, I have to admit, I’m more of a dress in all black type. I really admire those who can pull off pattern. Especially the Marimekko way. Here are five street style portraits of ladies sporting Marimekko prints.

Montage: 20 Rooms with Cherry Blossom Branches

It’s cherry blossom time. I know this not from seeing cherry blossoms outside my window (unfortunately), but from seeing so many on Pinterest. I don’t think Boston is big in cherry blossoms. In my neighborhood it’s magnolia trees that bloom like crazy, though not quite yet. If you’re wild about cherry blossoms, when you’re done scrolling through these, click over to my “Cherry Blossoms in the Home” post on Wayfair’s blog today too.
