I LOVE THE MODERN OFFERINGS AT A+R
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.

Now that Meredith & Daniel’s dining room schemes are complete, I’ve put together my favorites from my exhaustive search for dining tables. I’ve included a bit of everything here—round, elliptical, and rectangular—including tables that expand and fold up. Most are modern in style, some are vintage, materials run the gamut from scrap wood to marble, and prices range from $179 (IKEA!) to a piece by Autoban for De La Espada for $12,595.
I’ve been a huge fan of #3 for weeks, and it was just in a kitchen I wrote about for the Boston Globe Magazine. I can’t help but love the Saarinen (I have the side tables and they’re just so satisfying). I really love the mix of marble & rough wood, not to mention the price, of #1. #16 is pretty, and #44 and #46 are great reflections of current trends—dipped and geo. Any favorites here, or that I may have left out?

Following up on yesterday’s Montage: 31 Freestanding Fireplaces, here is a sampling of fireplaces and accessories, both contemporary and antique. There’s really no excuse not to have a flame of fire—small tabletop models fueled with ethanol can be had at Home Depot. You can even get one that hangs on your wall. Interesting. I’ve had my eye on the minimalist tempered glass screens for our fireplace on the Cape, though I think I need a custom one since it’s raised a foot or two from the floor. I think I’ll concentrate on retrofitting a gas model in our defunct fireplaces in Boston instead.

If you’re contemplating a statement light fixture in your living room, as I am, hopefully yesterday’s Montage: 47 Living Rooms with Chandeliers & Pendants gave you some ideas. Turns out I made a spur-of-the-moment rug purchase on One King’s Lane yesterday (an incredible David Hicks runner for my stairs), so the chandelier will have to wait. In the meantime, no reason to stop looking, and to really start to think about what will work in terms of size, etc.
Boston interior designer Shellie Donovan left a helpful tip on the StyleCarrot Facebook page: “Remember, measure the drop and visualize the height. The scale has to be correct, too large or small will kill the best piece. You can get flush mount for lower ceilings. ”
