Get the Look: 20 Modern Doormats

In true New England fashion, the Boston is not quite sure whether it’s winter yet. There were a few really cold days, including a recent Sunday when my 12-year-old went to a Patriots game in the rain and snow. I don’t mind the chilliness (I’m a tights and boots girl for sure) as long as there’s sun. That day did incite me to unearth the ice scraper and transfer it to the car. Not looking forward to using it.

Since we live in an apartment, most of the slush (and there’s plenty of it), gets left in the lobby. But still, we have a good doormat outside our door, and a more decorative one inside. Come snowy times, additional rugs get spread across the foyer, so as not to completely destroy my Jill Rosenwald gray area rug.

I know this is all kind of mundane, but I live in Boston, in the city. That means messy weather and no mud room. Even if you have a house with a white picket fence in a tropical clime, you still need a doormat, right? I’ve rounded up some door mats today, mainly coir and natural coconut fiber doormats; mostly modern doormats, many colorful doormats, plus neutrals, some in adorable silhouettes.

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 looks really good, especially the living room, for which we spent a lot of time looking at modern grey sofas. We wanted one that looked great but was still plenty comfortable.

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.
