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.”
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!
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.
