Montage: 40 Kitchens in Every Color of the Rainbow

I’m down in Florida last week, and although the condo still needs work, I haven’t quite motivated to do anything. I had the pink tiles and tub in the master bath reglazed, but that’s about it. Mostly I’m waiting for the contractor to say he can start. We’re not doing a lot—the main objective is to put down a new floor, tear off the wallpaper, and repaint. Those are the must-do projects.

Kitchen Before Blue Backsplash

The kitchen is fine, once we get the nautical wallpaper down. (Big thanks to my husband who ordered the perfect white shade and installed it, replacing the painfully outdated navy Venetian blind.) The appliances are not fancy, but they work (though honestly, how does anyone live full time with a fridge with a top freezer?) The countertops are white tile, and there’s a miniature backsplash of varying shades of blue tile. Not ideal, since they’re cobalt rather than Tiffany blue, but we’ll make it work. Right now the cabinets are an ugly, very glossy,  bone color with even uglier round black knobs. Obviously the knobs are an easy fix. But what color to paint the cabinets. Probably just white, but it’s fun to imagine . . .

Carrot Currency: 10 Pairs of Havaianas with Rooms to Match

Earlier this week an ad buyer emailed looking for placement for a “beach footwear” client. That’d be Havaianas. Recalling the popularity of the  20 Spring Shoes & 15 Rooms to Match post I did back in March, I thought you’d be game for another. That, and I’m off to Delray Beach for two weeks in December, so I figured I could get a jump on outfitting my feet. Which reminds me, I bought the cutest pair of bright skinny, cropped jeans at J.Crew on Monday.

Design Diary: Hearst’s Designer Visions Showhouse

I wish I could have made it to New York for this year’s Hearst Designer Visions show house. It is set in a brand new warehouse-to-condo conversion building in TriBeCa. They paired each magazine with a designer—Matthew Patrick Smyth for Elle Decor, David Rockwell for House Beautiful, and Antony Todd for Veranda. Then, the spaces were used as sets for two short films produced by The 48 Hour Film Project. Here’s a look at the rooms.
