Get the Look: 28 Leather Sofas in Cognac, Tobacco & Caramel

Did yesterday’s post, Montage: Cognac Colored Leather Sofas convince you that leather sofas, especially those in natural shades, can look truly fantastic in a living room with a more modern aesthetic? I would never have paired leather and sheepskin, or leather and bright pops of color, but the look works, right? If you’re looking for living room furniture, would you consider a leather sofa? Or would you just use yesterday’s rooms as inspiration for styling a leather sofa you may already have? Just in case you are contemplating a purchase, here are 28 leather sofas in modern silhouettes and cognac, tobacco, and caramel hues. My favorites are 3, 13, and 23. I was not familiar with DeSede, but I’m loving what I see!

Get the Look: 28 Modern Bird Houses and Bird Feeders

I’m not exactly Ms. Outdoorsy Birdwatcher Woman, and mostly I find their incessant early morning tweeting an annoyance,, but I do like the idea of feeding the little guys (must be the Jewish mom in me). I have a copper bird feeder I bought for my husband years ago when we had a house with a little roof deck and yard outside D.C., but we moved to Boston before we had the chance to use it. I hang it on a severed tree branch in our Truro yard every summer. If I fill it with chunky seeds, we get a serious influx of  crows, who then raid my sad little garden. (Who knew crows like cucumber?) Squirrels like to raid the feeder too. I’ve since switched over to a feeder that dispenses only skinny seeds, in hopes of attracting more pleasant feathered friends. Here’s a roundup of modern bird houses and bird feeders for your birding pleasure.

Get the Look: 22 Modern Gray Sofas

I put Montage: 54 Living Rooms with Gray Sofas together last summer, but never provided a shopping guide.  I created the roundup when I started to work on my friend Meredith’s NYC condo. We did it all remotely, and I haven’t even seen it yet, but she recently sent me a photograph and I’m happy to report that it loos really good.

We used a gray sofa with clean lines, the Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams Nicholas sofa along with turquoise Addison chairs by Jonathan Adler, a tufted wool rug by Angela Adams, and a mirrored console she purchased years ago from Horchow.

And now for your 22 modern gray sofas . . .

Get the Look: 30 Guest Room Goodies

Today is my debut as a LampsPlus blogger! The topic is seasonal—”14 Guest Room Essentials“—in anticipation of holiday house guests. (Not that I have to deal with this, as we go to Connecticut most Thanksgivings.) I do, however, love the idea of creating the perfect space for guests. In my younger (misguided) years, I thought having a B&B in Vermont would be fun. Yikes.  Instead I try to make our guest rooms on the Cape light, airy, and all around perfect. I suppose one could run into the problem of visitors overstaying their welcome, but since I don’t tend to cook and dance any jigs for them, I haven’t had this issue. : )

Anyway, addition to perusing the pretty guest room worthy offerings below, click over to Lamps Plus’ blog Style Illuminated for a look. In addition to a product roundup, I featured interiors designed by Palmer Weiss, Nicole Hollis, Maria Lladro, and others.

One last thing . . . I just want to mention that I’m in super good company. My co-bloggers include Anne Sage of The City Sage, KariAnn Wood of  Thistlewood Farm, Erin Hiemstra of Apartment 34, designer Rob Levine, Allison Rosenberg of Deco on the Road, Meg Biriam, and my editor, the lovely Lesley Myrick.
