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.

Montage: 65 Palm Beach Style Rooms

With summer not far away, it’s no surprise I’ve got color on my mind. Not that I’ll ever go all out in my own house, but I definitely admire the mix of brights that designers employ in rooms with WASP style. The color, the prints, the faux bamboo, the ornate mirrors, the ugly porcelain frogs. It’s all a whirl of fun. Last month I put together two Palm Beach primers for The Inside SourcePart 1 focused on the work of designers Ellen Hamilton, Annsley McAleer, and Angie Hranowsky; Part 2 on Amanda Nisbet and Palmer Weiss. Here are more rooms with a Palm Beach aesthetic.

Montage: 45 Striped Rooms

Years ago, one summer weekend when I opted to stay in the City over the Hamptons, I got really ambitious, and painted my little bathroom on East 87th Street with soft green and white stripes. Well, it was already white, so I only painted the green. Only? I measured, taped, painted, painted again, waited for it to dry, and peeled. Done before the boyfriend arrived back on Sunday night. I don’t remember what he thought, I guess it was fine, but I remember that someone else described it as looking like a candy store. I suppose, depending on what you keep in your medicine chest that could be accurate…
