Montage: 24 Rooms with Cork Floors (Plus My Own)

The cork floors have been installed in our Florida condo! And the walls are all a bright, sparkly white. So happy. The cork floor is amazing. It feels good under my feet (it’s not squishy though, more like a pressboard with a coating, like you’d find as the backing of a picture frame, as unappealing as that sounds), cleans well, and looks cool.

I was worried that the 1’x3′ tiles would read too traditional, but the look is practically seamless. There are a number of manufacturers of cork tile out there, in different shapes, colors, and finishes, though I chose the plainest one possible. (I wouldn’t have minded a lighter color, but this is probably more practical.)

The cork floor has the funky, almost unfinished loft look of the plywood floor I had been contemplating, but is much better in terms of feel and durability. The price was very reasonable. They even installed new sharp-edged baseboards. I’m thrilled. Thanks to Steve Gee/Tiffany’s Flooring for doing an impeccable job.

Fine Print: Best Design Books of 2013

One of the best perks of my job is the opportunity to review books. Although I’m wired 24/7, I love, love, love books; especially rich, glossy, design books. Luckily, I have substantial bookshelves lining my living room, so I kind of need them too. This year I received a number of impressive coffee table books, which line the shelves, and are stacked on the coffee table and the console table behind the sofa. I’m often running behind, so I haven’t had time to do individual blog posts on many of these, but that doesn’t mean I don’t think they’re great. Here’s a quick roundup of the best design books of 2013.

Montage: 35 Master Bedroom Sanctuaries

I know I’ve mentioned this on my Facebook page, but not sure I announced it here—I am now the official blogger for Massachusetts-based luxury bedding company Matouk, along with (and because of) my wonderful, dear friend and colleague, Meredith Barnett. We are blogging on the company’s brand new site (now with e-commerce) weekly, as well as working with designer Mindy Matouk to provide Q&As and design tips. I’ve also been tasked with creating and maintaing Matouk’s Pinterest boards, so be sure to follow. One of our first topics is the very Matouk-y theme of bedroom sanctuaries, so I thought I’d share a full-on collection of such rooms with you too. Makes me want to fall into bed and stay a while . . .

Montage: 24 Rooms That Use Baskets Right

I’m not sure yesterday’s woven basket post was such a hit. I know, like I said, I’m not a huge basket fan either. Perhaps I really should have provided the Montage first. Because woven baskets can be just the right touch, especially in a sophisticated ensemble. Look .  .  .

Montage: 52 DIY Headboards

As a less expensive follow up to last month’s Montage: 47 Upholstered Headboards, I want to share this collection of headboards that are re-purposed, up-cycled, and the like. There are headboards fashioned from doors, decals, mirrors, mantles, tapestries, chalkboards, room dividers, architectural elements, iron gates, pegboard, plywood, and more. DIY and v intage aren’t really my thing, but there are some good ideas here.I know this topic has been done, done, and done, but I hope a number of these images are new to you.
