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.

Montage: 47 Bedrooms with Upholstered Headboards

As I’m wrapping up the details on Meredith and Daniel’s apartment, I’m also sorting through my overabundance of images in iPhoto. In the mass cleanup are a multitude of upholstered beds. If you recall, the design process started with the master bedroom, because Meredith had a specific look in mind. Said look revolved around a great upholstered bed. We opted for a silhouette with gentle curves, white canvas upholstery, and nickel nail heads. As you can see from these rooms, there are so many different variations on shape, pattern, color, and detailing. Tomorrow I’ll round up specific styles for you to shop.

Montage: Mosquito Netting

It’s getting rather chilly in Boston. Some days are perfect crisp autumnal wonders. Others just plain cold. While I will surely be dreaming of Caribbean getaways come February, I had this post put together already, so I thought I’d share it now. I am crazy crazy with work. Will catch up here with many thoughtful posts later next week. For now, make yourself a rum drink and dream of the Islands.

Bed curtains definitely keep the heat in. Adding flannel sheets makes it extra cozy.
