Montage: 25 Concrete Sinks, Showers, and Tubs

It’s like all of Pinterest is being paved over in concrete. It’s everywhere, polished and textural. It’s possible that the more aren’t actually concrete; perhaps some sort of stone. Not sure; some may actually be limestone. (Any experts out there?)  I’m not much for the rugged ones, but I love the feel of polished concrete. Our fireplace mantle on the Cape is done in the most wonderful shade of jade green colored concrete, made by a local artist. The hearth is flush with the oak floor, and I love to stand barefoot on it. So smooth and lovely. The current look though, isn’t colored concrete. It’s gray concrete, pretty much on any surface, in any room. Here are 25 concrete bathrooms.

Montage: 32 White Rooms with Pops of Color

So we’re about to close on the condo in Delray Beach, and we’re scheduled to fly down for Columbus Day weekend. But other than that scouting trip to IKEA, I haven’t made much progress on the decor. Although the lines of the buildings are very clean, there’s a cathedral ceiling and a bit of white wood paneling. I don’t want to go too stark, if only because our Cape house is quite minimal and I’d like it to be somewhat different. So I’ve pulled a ton of photos of white spaces with bright pops of color. I want to be careful not to get too Scandinavian either. Perhaps I can strike a balance to achieve a Nordic meets Miami aesthetic.

Montage: 44 Rooms with Candlesticks and Candelabras

Ever since I got back from my design trip to Copenhagen last fall, I’ve been really interested in candlesticks. Candles are a key element in Scandinavian interiors, the fire adding both warmth and light over the long winter months of shortened days. I fell for smooth, brightly colored wooden pairs in the airport outpost of the department store Illums Bolighus, and located a set on eBay when I got home. (More beat up than smooth, but very inexpensive.) A lot of these interiors are Scandinavian in style, though not all. I bet you will recognize some specific candle holders and candelabras below. Which can you identify?

Montage: 65 Rooms with Bunk Beds

Looking back at my last bunk bed post from almost two years ago, I see I only included 17 examples. I can do better. Here are 65 amazing children’s bedrooms with bunk beds.

Montage: 45 Rooms with Sculptures (Plus My Own)


My husband and I have quite a bit of art—oil paintings, drawings, watercolors, pastels, photography—but not much in the way of sculpture. In fact, he said last week we should consider adding some to our collection. (OK!) We have a few pieces, which I’ve included photos of here, and at the end of the post. The above image (next to the Cynthia Packard) shows a little sculpture that my son made. (Most of you know I never gush about my kids, so indulge me this time.)

Boston sculptor/potter Steve Murphy has a daughter my sons’ age, so they’ve been treated to a special pottery-making sessions. Mercifully, Steve has the kids finish with a green glaze, so the clay  emerges from the kiln resembling patina-ed bronzes. My favorite is an abstract from the preschool years. (Subsequent years’ attempts at representational pieces were not quite so successful.) It’s been on our mantle for years, not out of misplaced maternal pride, but because I rather like it. (Aesthetics prevail around here.)

Here’s a shot of my bedroom bookshelf. (Excuse the low brow reading material.) The pieces aren’t exactly artfully arranged, but a few are quite special. Starting from the left:  black & white flower ‘Fusion Foto Bloc’ by Debbie Krim purchased at her SoWa studio; one of my most cherished works, a Romolo Del Deo bronze nude from Berta Walker Gallery in Provincetown, a holiday gift from my mother-in-law because I’ve always admired hers. Another gift from my mother-in-law, a miniature wooden Degas ballerina from the Met Museum gift shop. Her mother-in-law (my husband’s grandmother) gave it to her. She passed it down to me this past December. The two chairs prints I made a couple of summers ago after taking a class at Castle Hill. The small rock is a chunk of pyrite and the large rock on the right we found on a Truro beach. Finally, the outstretched ballerina on the right is a piece I’ve had for much of my life, passed down from my grandmother, who was an antiques dealer. It is bronze on a green marble base but don’t know anything else about it.

Now that you know plenty about my own collection, here are 45 more refined rooms with many spectacular sculptures, starting with a Dubuffet.

A few other shots of sculptures in my own home:

Left: Chaim Gross sculpture, a gift from my in-laws, It is bronze on a wood base, and very heavy.
Right top: A wooden sculpture of a mother and two children that I bought at a gallery in Wellfleet on Cape Cod when my children were about those ages, and always wanted to be held. It’s dark-stained wood. I can look up the artist if anyone’s interested.
Right bottom: A close-up shot of my son’s abstract clay sculpture, circa 2005.

Montage: 22 Spaces with Sheepskin Throws

It makes sense that so many taste makers strew sheepskin throws on the furniture. Whether it’s to reinforce the cozy in an already dressed down space, soften a room that’s bit too sleek, or add texture to a monochromatic palette, the shaggy skins are undeniably a nice touch.

I was immediately drawn to the gray sheepskins that are thrown over the chairs in the third photo down. I could do that, I thought. I had seen the curly gray versions at IKEA. They’d make the perfect touch on my new gray sofa in the family room. At once inviting and edgy. So tempting. Until I thought about it. How many times a day do I replace the pillows and blankets that litter the floor? Did I want to add to the chore? Not so much. Oh well.

Maybe it’d work on my all white bed. Who am I kidding? I don’t make my bed . . .

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.)
