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: 47 Coffee/Cocktail Tables

Now that our living room is habitable again (aside from the two extra dining tables taking up half the space), I’ve decided to try out the Heywood-Wakefield coffee table with revolving top that we salvaged from my husband’s grandparents house. I had initially been thinking of an airy brass and glass piece, to work with the pair of atomic ball and brass-plated  vintage lamps from eBay and yet to be chosen future chandelier, but this one looks pretty good.

It works nicely with our Petrie sofa, which has similar lines to the original 1960s pieces his grandparents used to furnish the house. (Too bad our sofa is uncomfortable. Actually, it’s fine for cocktails, but not conducive to lying around with a laptop. Which do you think I spend more time doing?

Here are 49 living rooms with various styles of coffee table (or cocktail table, I guess the term is interchangeable). If you’re working on figuring out what type of design will work for you, these images will provide some ideas.

Montage: 45 Rooms with Patterned Rugs

I’ve been looking at a lot of rugs lately. I’m intent on reclaiming my kids’ playroom as a family space that all can enjoy, rather than a pigpen covered in LEGOS. (Does anyone really need an entire city space, complete with bay window, dedicated to primary colored plastic bricks?) As I was contemplating the best way to replace the dot marker and glitter stained sensible wool sisal (not that you could see it under the aforementioned LEGOS), my editor at the Globe asked me to put together a spread of colorful floor coverings (“Step On It“). Finally, I’d be paid to research redecorating my own house!

Like many a rug researcher before me, I fell hard for Madeline Weinrib Tibetan wools. And, the one I oh-so coveted, Lavender Chime, popped up on One King’s Lane for half price! Not so fast, it was still $4,000. (“Are you kidding me?” my husband not so gently asked. “You seriously want to put a $4,000 rug in a room where we’re going to watch movies and eat popcorn?”) Okay, not so much. On to plan B. Drag said husband to Crate & Barrel for an afternoon of rug and sofa shopping. That’ll teach him!

Anyway, here is an array of rooms using amazing patterned rugs. I love the way it punches up the space, with hardly any effort. There are two rooms with the Madeline Weinrib Black and White Endless. How many can you find with The Rug Company Swirl by Paul Smith?
