Get the Look: 38 Decorative Wall Hooks

We never seem to have enough hooks, whether it’s in the closet, on the back of the bathroom door, or in the kitchen, I’ve been meaning to add to by my desk for my tote bag too, instead of always draping it on the back of my chair. WIth the holidays upon us, not to mention what’s sure to be a snowy winter,  adding hooks to inside the closet, by the door in the entry, and pretty much all over the mudroom is always a good idea.

Here are 38 mostly modern decorative wall hooks from StyleCarrot partners and other shops, many fun, all functional.

Get the Look: 45 Faux Animal Heads

If yesterday’s post showcasing 29 interiors with faux animal heads inspired you, allow me to help you do a little shopping. The range of faux animal heads (or animal head trophies, animal head mounts, animal head plaques, animal head wall sculptures, or whatever you prefer to call them) is kind of incredible.

There are painted porcelain and tapestry textile heads created by fine artists, papier mache animal heads by artisans in Haiti, resin models done in neon brights with glittery antlers, metal animal heads. animal trophies made of cardboard, and a plethora of plush models meant for kids. I found a blow up unicorn head (what my 7th grade self would have given for one of those) and a modern wire geo-style animal head sculpture. There’s even an artist creating animal head sculptures out of upcycled farm equipment.

The variety of faux animal heads means you can hang one pretty much anywhere, in any style room. It’s hardly cabins only decor.

Get the Look: My Back to School Supplies

Post sponsored by Wayfair. They came up with the back-to-school concept, but the content is all me.

I always considered back-to-school the best time of year, even when I was a kid, and later a teenager. Even in high school  I’d itch for homework, buying standardized test books to keep me busy. I realize that sounds incredibly nerdy, but I had a job, and a boyfriend, and friends, I swear. I still get excited when continuing ed catalogs come in the mail, but alas, my school days are over.

I don’t really need to buy school supplies for the kids, since their schools provide pretty much everything they need, but that doesn’t stop me. When retailers break out the crayon and glue stick displays in August  I get giddy. I’ve always had a well-stocked desk and still do. (And a back up supply closet.) I keep a designated bin of stuff for the boys, but that doesn’t stop them from raiding my shelves. My husband thinks I’m a little whacky with my inexplicable possessiveness over scissors;  it’s one of my quirks.

Although I have a firm no paper rule (everything gets photographed and filed electronically, I still keep a paper calendar. I use the monthly At-A-Glance calendars which I fill in and color-code by activity. (Green for work deadlines, red for birthdays, turquoise for my appointments, purple for the kids, yellow for days off, etc.);I have a silly attachment to see through fluorescent highlighters and can’t pass up a good set of markers. I even use White-Out.

Last fall I started a consistent exercise program, Skyping with my frriend Sarah (search Sarah John Fitness on FB) for personal core training twice per week, and her friend Kristy another two times weekly for yoga. I’m currently on hiatus (we’re all moms, hip hopping around for the summer), but am eager to get back into a routine. It’s time to upgrade to an  extra thick yoga mat (I have knobby knees). I love the tall glass water bottles with wooden lids too, even though my husband finds them annoyingly tippy in the fridge.

Finally, extra iPhone chargers. Although I try to keep mine put at my desk, it sometimes disappears after smaller people in the house “borrow” it, having bent their own into oblivion. You can suffer through back-to-school season at big box stores or you can order everything online from Wayfair. Here are my 15 must-have for me back-to-school supplies.

Get the Look: 25 Bar Cabinets, Classic and Contemporary

A million years ago, we offloaded our television in the living room, leaving an extra roomy could-be bar cabinet free and clear. It soon became a convenient space, given its boxy shape, to store art we weren’t displaying, extra picture frames, and overflow throw pillows. A television has since taken up residence again with a new DVD player, specifically for me to watch movies (since I don’t know how to work the main TV with its fifty-buttoned five remotes), or currently, Friday Night Lights (OMG, Tim Riggins).

I had the best intentions; I imagined transforming the newly vacant slot, complete with pull-out shelf, into a stylish home bar cabinet for my husband. I thought about it a lot, knowing it would make a much appreciated birthday gift. But no follow through from me. Instead, liquor bottles remain relegated to the upper cabinet of the pantry, with some of the more attractive specimens on display atop the would-be bar cabinet in a teal lacquer bar tray, provided by the lovely ladies at an agency for Absolut. (You can see my bar tray styling post here.)

So, woe is my husband’s home bar situation. Jon Draper he shall never be. But if you have room in your living room, you could set up a stylish home bar in one of these 25 bar cabinets chosen from a dozen of my favorite sources for modern and classic furnishings, including some partner sites. Imagine tucking one of these bar cabinets into an unused corner, complete with a shiny cocktail shaker, sleek drinkware, and stripey paper straws.

Get the Look: 60 Modern Grey Sofas

Monage: 54 Living rooms with Gray Sofas is by far the most popular post on this blog, with twice the number of page views as the second most popular, Montage: 57 Plywood Rooms. Although I’ve recently updated the links for its companion post—Get the Look: 22 Modern Grey Sofas—it’s been over two years since I originally created it, so I figured another one was in order.

We have a grey sofa in the family room, and although it may not be as fashion forward as I’d like, it’s got clean lines, durable fabric, and big comfy cushions. It’s so long all four of us can watch television on it. We actually kind of built the room around it, insisting to our designer that the door to the study be extra narrow. (He wasn’t happy but obliged.)

Since everyone still seems to want to buy a grey sofa, here are 60 modern grey sofas you can shop for at 27 different stores, from minimalist modern styles to more classic tufted chesterfield sofas, with a few gray sleeper sofas thrown in. Price points vary, with ten styles under $1000 and many falling in the mid-range.
