Montage: 25 Mint Kitchens

Yes, my prom dress junior year was mint. Fine. But mint’s made a comeback. (Nevermind I haven’t once used my lovely mint tote.) These 25 mint kitchens are a mix of old and new. Some use mint with a fresh twist, by combining it with black. Other mint kitchens are done  with retro spirit (hello mint Smeg fridge). For tips on achieving mint kitchens minus the kitsch, have a look at my newest installment on Wayfair’s blog, “Decorating with Mint in the Kitchen.”

Montage: 23 Beach House Bunk Rooms

I’ve done a couple of bunk bed montages, and just recently built-in alcove beds, but today’s entire post is dedicated specifically to bunk rooms. Most often, kids bedrooms with multiple built-in bunk beds. They tend to be done in summer houses in nautical styles, though not all of them. The very simple Scandinavian ones are lovely. I like the idea, and the design of these quad bunks, but I’m not really into having four or more kids sleep over; two boys are enough!

Montage: 56 Spaces Decorated with Giraffes

I think the first time I really noticed a giraffe from a design perspective (besides when I was at the zoo), was almost three years ago when my friend’s baby was chewing on a rubber one. You know it—the ubiquitous Sophie the Giraffe Teether by Vulli. (If you’re not up on tot stuff, guarantee you’ll notice one tomorrow.) When Martha Stewart shared the cover of the September issue with a practically life sized stuffed giraffe in her grandchild’s nursery, I knew I was past due for a post. So, now six months later, I’ve finally pulled one together. My punishment for delay is your treat — I have over 50 images for you. I know a lot of other blogs have noticed the trend too, but I hope a bunch of these are new for you. There’s quite a few nurseries with giraffes, but plenty of grownup spaces too.

Montage: 32 Rooms with Blue Velvet Sofas

For a while I had been noticing gray sofas galore, but lately its been blue velvet sofas that have been standing out. Elegant but still cozy, they work in a variety of rooms, and seem just the touch of richness needed for this chilly winter week. There are some old favorites in here that I felt like I had to include (Frank Roop, Mary McDonald), but also plenty of new finds. Tomorrow we’ll take a shopping trip on the Interwebs to find blue velvet seating of our own.
