Get the Look: Multicolor Dinnerware

I got an email this morning alerting me to the new and very colorful dinnerware collection by The Novogratz, now available at Macy’s (see #9). That’s Cortney and Robert Novogratz, the husband and wife design duo and parents of seven children, whose fun aesthetic has been the subject of an HGTV show and several collections for CB2. I’ve long been a fan of the CB2 Family rug, which is sadly no longer in production. (I’d kinda been thinking about using it in our Florida condo.)

The dinnerware would look great in an all white decor, which got me thinking, what other colorful tabletop patterns are available, if one were to extend beyond white or basic neutrals Here are 17 multicolor dinnerware options I found. I’ve always loved iitala Origo (#10), and Donna’ Wilson’s pink pastel (#4) is adorable, if you had the right Scandinavian inspired space. Would you stray from white for any of these?

Montage: 30 Outdoor Showers

We’re heading out for the summer on Friday, the day after my son graduates from the Montessori school where he spent nine years of his little life. I cannot believe I am going to have a junior high school kid. Yikes. But first, summer . . . I don’t think I ever pulled together an outdoor shower roundup for you, despite my intentions. One of the highlights of our Cape house, as I know I’ve mentioned, is the bathtub. We also have a decent outdoor shower on a deck off said bathroom, overlooking the woods. I’ll add a photo to this post once we get out there. My in-laws outdoor shower is lovelier, with wisteria overhead and an ocean-view. Sigh. For now I’ll scroll through these to get in the mood.

Montage: 22 Exterior Glass Doors

This very minute I’m in the quad awaiting the annual Maypole dances at my son’s school. It’s gorgeous out —green, flowering, and sunny. When the kids were small, I’d perch on the playground bench equipped with my laptop. These days, it just doesn’t seem worth the effort since conditions are less than ideal. Although we live on the “garden” level, first floor Back Bay, Boston condos aren’t outfitted with much in the way of outdoor space. On  a whim, we looked at two houses across the river in Cambridge. One had such a lovely city-like patio and yard, I was tempted.

I’ve pulled together a collection of 22 exterior spaces all accessed by wonderful (mostly) glass exterior doors. There are the obvious sliding doors and French doors, but these are unique wood slat and metal-frame versions. I’ve included plenty of traditionally-hinged doors, though their shape, size, and applications are anything but run-of-the-mill. An  accordion door is incredibly appealing, and sadly not so common in the Northeast. (One could do accordion room dividers, however. I’ve seen a few amazing photos of these on Pinterest.) Interiors with sliding barn doors have become hugely popular; I found one outdoor example, included here. The most amazing exterior doors, aside from having a garage door in your living room, which I’ve always thought was cool, are glass pivot doors. I’ve found a number of gorgous examples for you. Every category could easily get its own post—which do you like best?

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: 50 (More) Green Rooms

I posted 40 Green Rooms back in the summer of 2009, so it’s time for an update, especially since Saturday is St. Patrick’s Day. (Not that I’m Irish, but green is my favorite color.) Mint green is trending in fashion, but unfortunately, I didn’t come across many mint green interiors in my photo archives. Maybe that’s a whole other post down the line. Let me know if you’ve spotted any mint green rooms around the web.

Montage: 32 Rooms with Bar Carts and Bars

Somebody I know is having a birthday soon, and I know he’d really like to set up a bar. Here’s some inspiration. If he’s lucky, I may just get my act together and start the process. I know the perfect spot for it.
