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: 34 Rooms with Art on Bookshelf Fronts

By now you know we have a lot of artwork. We’ve been diligent about hanging, but there are plenty of pieces propped against the wall, and worse, hiding in cabinets and behind furniture, but in some cases we’ve gotten creative. While we haven’t hung art on the fronts of our built in bookshelves, I did recently grab a hammer and nail to hang a lovely nude drawing by Chaim Gross on the frame of the bay window in the living room. I love the way it adds a touch of color and movement to an otherwise bland surface. (The blinds have got to go.)

In related news, my second blog post for Wayfair went live today: “8 Ways to Display Art.” Today’s post is taken from tip #6: Be Brave with Bookshelves. Here are 34 rooms that do just that. Would you try it? Here’s a secret. . . we mounted our flat screen television to the bookshelves in the family room. Didn’t think the shelves would still be functional, but they’re actually fine for DVDs.

Montage: 25 Home Bars Styled with Mirrors

A well-styled home bar is a basic must-have in well turned-out living rooms, so maybe I shouldn’t admit we don’t have one.  My husband really, really wants one. I’ve been thinking about repurposing the built-in that was once the TV cabinet into a fully-stocked booze serving station. It would make a great Chanukah present if I could get around to it next week. Not. Maybe for his birthday in March.

I have bars on the brain for two reasons: One, tomorrow we’re having friends over for the first nigh of Chanukah. While Champagne will likely be the drink of choice, it still feels like we should have a bar if we’re entertaining. Two, earlier this week LampsPlus asked me if I’d like to stay on as a regular guest blogger. I said yes. I love the challenge and fun of sourcing items from within a  single  site.  Today they published my third guest post, Decorative Mirrors to Dress Up a Bar. With all our extra art, a bar area in my house would surely have a painting anchoring the space. The ones here use mirrors.
