Get the Look: 18 Capiz Shell Pendants & Chandeliers

Following up on yesterday’s post, 18 Rooms with Capiz Shell Pendants & 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 18 different capiz shell pendants & chandeliers from StyleCarrot Partners 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, though most of these capiz shell lamps are quite affordable.

Get the Look: 40 Modern Copper Home Accessories

At this rate I may tire of copper before I acquire a single piece. (Although I already own copper wastebasket I bought from the Martha Stewart catalog and have been using for years in our powder room.) A month ago I featured 24 rooms with copper pendants here on StyleCarrot, followed up by a dozen rooms with copper pendants on Design Milk, and a dozen copper accessories. Expanding on the copper accessories roundup, here are 40 modern copper home furnishings finds. And be sure to see my 20 copper picks on Houzz later this month too. Told you.

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: 20 Modern Outdoor Water Fountains

Back in December, The Spa at the Mandarin Oriental Boston treated me to the luxurious Frankincense Massage Ritual. It was only the second time I had visited the spa, having not been there since the hotel opened several years ago, and it was just as perfect as I remembered. The whirlpool, steam room, and tropical shower are all heavenly, and the treatment itself was superb.

As with all treatments, the Frankincense started with ritual foot cleansing, spices, and the sound of cymbals.  Then a relaxing massage for which the therapist used De Stress Mind Body Oil, concocted with a blend of wild chamomile, frankincense and petitgrain oils. The treatment finishes with deep inhalations of the Frankincense essential oils and a soothing scalp massage. The experience, as you might imagine, was heavenly.

It made me think of how I would love the sound of an outdoor water feature on Cape Cod. Since a minimalist creation designed by a landscape architect is not really an option given the cost, I looked into possible alternatives. Perhaps a ready made modern fountain? While many of the widely available outdoor water fountains are not necessarily cutting-edge modern, there are those with a contemporary aesthetic that would nestle into one’s garden or anchor a patio quite nicely.

Then, you could invite a massage therapist over for a treatment outdoors. The gentle trickle of your own fountain beats Enya from a portable speaker any day.

Gift Guide: Valentine’s Day Hearts You’d Actually Want

Last week, I put together a gift guide of heart-shaped goodies that you’d actually want (unlike, say, a pink heart-shaped diamond engagement ring) for KEEP (it’s like Pinterest but all shop-able; definitely check out my KEEP collections). I’m porting it over here today for you, since we’re getting pretty close to the big day. Flowers die, sparkly jewelry, cashmere sweaters, edgy tableware, mid-century modern chairs, and vintage Chanel are much more appreciated. Here are 10 heart-shaped Valentine’s Day gifts that even would-be heart haters wouldn’t be able to resist.
