Get the Look: 31 Bird Home Accessories

I probably mentioned that I recently started curating product Ideabooks for Houzz. Yesterday I posted my newest Houzz Ideabook “Bye Bye Birdie, Hiya Birdie,” featuring a flock of feathered friend home furnishings. Playing off that, I added to the collection, with 31 bird-themed home furnishings and accessories, because really, spring will come soon. Meanwhile, add a bird pillow, bird figurine, bird bowl, bird rug, bird wallpaper, bird artwork, or even a bird toilet brush holder, to your decor.

Get the Look: 72 Bar + Counter Stools

As I mentioned yesterday, we chose the bar stools for Meredith + Daniel’s  kitchen. Although we arrived at an obvious and eternally perfect classic (Bertoia!), I looked at a lot of examples of bar & counter stools. Lucky you, they’re detailed below.

First though, let’s have a lesson about rules for bar stools and counter stools:

What’s the difference between a bar stool & counter stool?
If you’ve ever shopped for kitchen stools, you’ve noticed that they come in two heights. The standard height for a bar stool is 30″, while the average height for a counter stool is about 26″.

How to choose the right height bar & counter stool?
You’ll want 8″ to 12″ of leg room between the stool and the bottom of your counter/table.

Consider the overhang.
You might find that counters with a very deep overhang call for a slightly shorter stool.

How much space should you allot between stools?
For stools 16″-18″ wide, allow about 22″ of space between them. For stools 19″-22″ wide, allow about 24″ of breathing room. Leave even more space for swivel stools and stools with arms.

I didn’t even realize that the stools I use in Boston and Cape Cod are
Last Minute bar stools by Patricia Urquiola.

Get the Look: 22 Sconces that Stretch

I’m trying to come up with a spot in my apartment where I could install one of these super long-armed wall lamps. I’m over the industrial factory look (for my own space anyway). I like the bare bones minimal ones and also the Italian vintage styles from the ’50s, though I fear they’re a bit on the whimsical side for me.  I think #15 is my favorite. Maybe in the family room, over the sofa? That room could use a little architectural-like interest. It’s much more practical than an annoying floor lamp.  Many of these are pricey; the style hasn’t been knocked off  in a frenzy by the usual suspects yet, so I didn’t really find any truly “low” options.
