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.

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: 30 Spaces with Sputnik Chandeliers

I’m not really all about retro, but I am loving sputnik chandeliers. (Though I wonder if the trend will be too over soon. These days it’s really about the raw light bulb.) Chunky chrome anemone fixtures, spiky brass models, expansive hand blown glass designs, and crystal floret-adorned vintage beauties are all still on my mind. I’m thinking an amazing, somewhat intricate eBay find would add glamour to my soon-to-be-in-the-works living room. (Of course, I’d need to hire an electrician.) While I’m at it, a sleeker model might be just the finishing touch my bedroom needs. I must do an accompanying “Get the Look” post to this montage. Stay tuned. (A post on exposed light bulbs is also in progress.)

Montage: 34 Rooms with Poufs

The ubiquitous pouf. They’re everywhere. Moroccan-style poufs, knitted poufs, even wire poufs (though not sure those are actually poufy). I finally purchased one for myself. It’s silver metallic, and sits in front of the white sofa with the gray ikat pillows, which sits in front of my white bed, which sits in front of an accent wall covered with a white wallpaper with silver metallic circles. Seems stylish, right? Guess who hates the pouf? He thinks it looks like a giant, shiny soccer ball.

Here are enough photos of gorgeous rooms to prove that the pouf really is at the height of fashion.

Montage: Mudrooms

When my editor at the Boston Globe Magazine asked me to do a column on mudrooms, I wondered how I would find three great specimens. Turns out, I got more submissions more quickly than for any other assignment. Makes sense, with our wet winters and sandy, saltwatery summers. “Cloudy With a Chance of Backpacks” was published this past Sunday. Below are many of the mudroom submissions I received, plus a handful of others, including my own. (On the Cape. Unfortunately there’s no such space in our Boston condo, unless you count the living room. I don’t.)
