Get the Look: 60 Modern Grey Sofas

Monage: 54 Living rooms with Gray Sofas is by far the most popular post on this blog, with twice the number of page views as the second most popular, Montage: 57 Plywood Rooms. Although I’ve recently updated the links for its companion post—Get the Look: 22 Modern Grey Sofas—it’s been over two years since I originally created it, so I figured another one was in order.

We have a grey sofa in the family room, and although it may not be as fashion forward as I’d like, it’s got clean lines, durable fabric, and big comfy cushions. It’s so long all four of us can watch television on it. We actually kind of built the room around it, insisting to our designer that the door to the study be extra narrow. (He wasn’t happy but obliged.)

Since everyone still seems to want to buy a grey sofa, here are 60 modern grey sofas you can shop for at 27 different stores, from minimalist modern styles to more classic tufted chesterfield sofas, with a few gray sleeper sofas thrown in. Price points vary, with ten styles under $1000 and many falling in the mid-range.

Get the Look: 16 Round Jute Rugs

Fresh off a wicker roundup in the Boston Globe (I can’t believe they didn’t go with my “Wickah Smaht” headline) and following up on yesterday’s 18 Rooms with Round Jute Rugs, I’ve pulled together a collection of round jute rugs (or hemp, or other natural fibers), most of them lacey.

These round jute rugs are intricate but rough, with a ton of tactile appeal. They’re great for entry halls and beach houses or other high traffic situations, or just to add a layer of texture in a neutral room. You can also hang a swirly jute rug on the wall, above a sofa, a bookshelf, or a bed as large, easy, and affordable adornment.

I’m kind of in love with number 3, the fantastical Heenalu jute rug (yes, I realize that one’s not a round jute rug, but I had to include it). Number 8 is fun too, though probably a bit on the boho side for me. Number 7 from Serena & Lily is neat and tidy, and Number 14 comes with a fluorescent pink border too, though I’m not sure if they ship to the States.

Temps have been above 40 in Boston, so I figure it’s time to start thinking about summer decor. I think straw, sisal, wicker, rattan, jute, hemp, and the like can have a place if used sparingly and originally. We can start by checking out round jute rugs.

ARTmonday: 16 Pieces of Sports Artwork

Ok, so first #PatsNation #WeWon #Phew. I watched the Patriots/Seahawks Superbowl game last night, obviously. Or at least the half time show. (Dancing sharks?) Actually, I watched the second half of the game (half watched as I sourced these sports artworks). I was a little bit worried about my son, who takes all things Patriots very seriously. Even the phone call canceling school didn’t get a cheer. But the Patriots pulled it off again. So, yay. But boo to the snow day.

Here are 16 sports artworks, covering one angle or another of skiing, fishing, swimming, sailing, ice hockey, volleyball, ostrich racing (huh?), surfing, tennis, cycling, cheerleading, football, golf, and boxing. Now bundle up and go sledding.

ARTmonday: 20 Fun Food Artworks

With all the food art I perused to put together last week’s 20 Autumnal Artworks in honor of Thanksgiving along with the post I did for Matouk, Appreciating Autumn Through Art, I noticed there were quite a few examples of humorous, fun food artworks. You may not want to eat anything after this weekend, but there’s no harm in looking. Some of it may even inspire you to try snapping fun food artworks yourself, at least on Instagram.

ARTmonday: 20 Autumnal Artworks

I feel like fall just started, but really we’re fast heading into winter, with a few frigid days already behind us. The leaves too, are almost gone. The spectacular array of golds, reds, and oranges continue to amaze, despite having spent every single one of my autumns in a four-season zone. Even driving the kids to and from school is made better by the autumnal artwork outside my windshield.

I remember, though when I took the fall foliage for granted. (Gasp.) Obviously I didn’t think much about the pretty color leaves growing up in Connecticut. Sure, I pressed brilliant red leaves between sheets of waxed paper, and probably made leaf turkeys, too, but beyond that, didn’t give fall foliage a thought. Until college.

At Connecticut College, one of my closest friends, Jessica Biales (I’ve previously blogged about her children’s artwork and stunning gold jewelry), went cuckoo over the changing leaves. She would exclaim and effuse about their beauty, leaving me as baffled as my kids probably are when I point out the amazing leaf colors along the Charles River. She wasn’t from a tropical clime.

Rather, Jessica is a New York City girl through and through, with a deep appreciation for the autumn foliage that wasn’t quite as vibrant out her bedroom window along the East River, or in Central Park. I get it now. I guess good things do come with age.

Today’s roundup features 20 autumnal artworks, from an acrylic of golden birches to a desert landscape photo to Central Park in fall, seen from Columbus Circle. There’s also a  homey kitchen, plus fall harvest still lifes, and an abstract or two in perfect fall hues. I also pulled together a similar collection for the blog on Matouk, which I’ll link to when it goes up. Enjoy not just these autumnal artworks, but the real art of autumn outside your windows.
