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?

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!)

Get the Look: 40 Neutral Taupey Gray Rugs

I kinda want to redecorate my living room. (Husband, if you’re by some off chance reading this, don’t freak out.) But, I’m not going to. I love my pale green walls, and blue accessories, but, I don’t know, I’m just kind of over the patterned rug and bold statements in general. I’m feeling more like cozy neutrals, and installing a gas fireplace. But, like I said, probably I won’t. At least now at this point. I mean, when would I even find the time? I have enough time, however, to do some window shopping for taupey, gray rugs. We actually do need to replace the rug in the family room (again), and that’s the existing color scheme. (I would, however, like to tweak the paint color.) I really love some of these rugs, especially the ones with the muted, blown-out patterns. And that jellyfish is kind of awesome.

Get the Look: 34 Brass Accents

Brass made a comeback a few years ago, and although copper is the metal of the moment (yes, I’ll roundup copper goodies for you soon), brass shows no signs of slowing down. In fact, it’s creeping even deeper in the house. In addition to wall sculptures and sputnik chandeliers, faucets have gone brassy. Bits of brass are popping up in bathrooms and kitchens. Today I’m working on a brass in the kitchen post for Lamps Plus, which I’ll supplement with a Montage here on StyleCarrot. Doing things backwards, I put together this roundup of brass furnishings, lighting, accessories for today, in honor of “What’s New, What’s Next” at the New York Design Center.

NYDC invited me to be a blogger ambassador for the program, which takes place on Sept. 19.  “What’s New, What’s Next” showcases new ideas, materials, and products that will soon debut at NYDC. This year’s blogger involvement includes a promotion on Pinterest, which we all know I love. The Arteriors andirons (#10) is the inspiration for this post. My collage (products 1-10 here) will be on display during the event.

Here are 34 brass accents, including furniture, lighting, home accessories, desk accessories, and brass jewelry.

Get the Look: Crystal Ball Chandeliers

Following up on yesterday’s Montage: 20 Rooms with Crystal Ball Chandeliers, and simultaneously pushing my own living room light fixture quest forward, I scrounged around for crystal ball chandeliers and floral sputnik styles. While these all aren’t exactly uniform in style, I resisted the urge to include other types of globe-shaped pendants, like the pierced Oly pieces, or spikey corals, or capiz shell creations, or globules of hand blown glass, in the effort to (mostly) approximate a globe shape in crystal (or at least crystal detail).

The vintage Italian versions from 1st dibs (#11 and #21) are what I’d love to hang. #1, which is a contemporary version, is great looking too, though minus the patina. I discovered that Juliska makes light fixtures (who knew?) and I’m kinda smitten with the Serena & Lily (#5) in concept, though it skews too Moroccan for my own home. Check out #8; it’s quite beautiful, and interesting (and I wouldn’t have expected to find it at a department store). #7 is a popular pendant that gets the look across without being frouffy, and #15 is a bit more feminine, petite, and very inexpensive. Anyway, enough of my musing, have a look yourself and let me know your thoughts.

Get the Look: 23 Pastel Home Furnishings

Did yesterday’s post Montage: 30 Pretty Pastel Interiors convince you to go soft? Some of those rooms weren’t sickeningly sorbet, there was a richness to them, I thought. Still, I understand if you have qualms. You could easily add a touch of pastel home furnishings here and there however. A sky blue chaise, peachy table linens, a mint fridge. Kidding on the mint fridge part; unless you’re going for a retro diner look. I wonder how many people have purchased that Smeg mint refrigerator from West Elm? I’m more inclined to go for a World’s Away turquoise bar cart myself. And I’m definitely eyeing the woven hamper. At least splurge on a fouta and some bamboo cutlery for a pastel picnic. Ok my pretties, here are your pastel picks for the day!
