Get the Look: 16 Capiz Shell Chandeliers

Following up on yesterdays 18 Rooms with Capiz Chandeliers, you might be thinking of buying one for yourself. Did any of the applications change your mind about how you think of the look? Not so kitschy, correct?

Here are 16 different capiz shell chandelier and pendant lights to consider hanging in your home, above the dining table, bathtub, or stairwell. I love the gray. And of course, I’d never turn down a piece designed by Verner Panton. Most of these capiz lights are quite affordable, hailing from Horchow, West Elm, and similar stores.

Get the Look: Boston Condo by Ana Donohue

I put together furniture and accessories so you can re-create the living room, dining room, and desk area of a the condo I featured as yesterday’s blog post: “Design Diary: Boston Pied-a-Terre by Ana Donohue.” Interior designer Ana Donohue decorated the two bedroom in Boston’s Back Bay for clients who live full time in Bermuda. Of the pieces here, some are exactly what Ana used, others are more affordable options. (Interior photos by Michael J. Lee)

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: 48 Pendant Lights Perfect for Hallways

Following up on yesterday’s post Montage: 28 Hallways With Pendants, I’ve rounded up 48 pendant lights that are perfect to use in succession in long (or short) hallways. Good lighting definitely works to improve home ambiance and helps keeps moods lifted, especially in these dark winter months. (As much as I loved Copenhagen, I suppose it’s best I don’t live in Scandinavia.)

I tend to refer to our downstairs as a dungeon (we live on the parlor and lower levels, so to speak), but at least the lower levels house the bedrooms. Thankfully the living room, where my desk (and work sofa!) is has a large bay window that looks onto a lovely urban view of historic buildings, and right now, trees with  lingering red and gold leaves. The ceiling is also rather low, so likely I’ll have to go with flush or semi-flush mount fixtures, but I wanted to provide you with an array of pendants that would enliven more prominent (or humdrum but high) hallways.

Cuing off the styles in yesterday’s post, you can see that pretty much any style of pendant can work. I think I’ve sourced a few of all the examples shown: wicker pendants, copper & brass pendants, schoolhouse pendants, industrial cage pendants, colorful and all black dome pendants, classic lanterns, geo faceted pendants, simple drum pendants, glass pendants (including swirly Murano glass styles), capiz shell pendants, Moroccan style star pendants, globe pendants, and the ever trendy bare bulb fixtures. Inspired yet?

Get the Look: 27 Black Home Furnishings

Since black is *the* color for decor, and I’ve done plenty of posts focusing on black decor, including black kitchen pendant lights and rooms with black walls for LampsPlus and black bedrooms for the Matouk Bedding blog, I thought it was time to do a roundup of black home furnishings and accessories. From black flatware to black seating, there are 27 choices, all with distinctive details or in interesting silhouettes. (Come to think of it, though, I may never have done a roundup of rooms with black walls here. . .  perhaps I owe you one!)
