Ten Things to Hang Above The Bed

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

My friend is redoing her master bedroom and can’t decide what to hang above her bed.  I told her there are a medley of options available, from mirrors to artwork to nothing at all.  Her dilemma got me thinking … so I came up with ten different ideas for what to hang or display above a bed in a master or guest bedroom.

1.  Mirrors, Large and Small.  A mirror is a natural choice since large or small, they create an instant focal point above the bed.  You can always balance out a large scale piece with smaller artwork off to the side above the nightstands.

2. Black and White Photographs.   A series of black and white photographs framed above a bed is always a sophisticated classic – the bigger the better!

Sophisticated Sofettes

Wednesday, July 25th, 2012

I was in search of a petite sofa upholstered in an alluring shade of blue for quite some time, so when I spied one for sale on Joss & Main last month, I snatched it up without hesitation.

Often dubbed the “sofette”, these pieces are not as large, long, or bulky as a typical sofa, nor as deep or poufy as most loveseats.  Less stiff along the back compared to a traditional settee but still a copycat when it comes to the exposed legs.  Sofettes are slim, sophisticated, versatile pieces that will squeeze into just about any space.

Predictably perfect for small space living, in apartments or in bedrooms, more unexpected yet clever in dining spaces – they’re small in scale but still comfortable enough to lounge on – the sofette is this century’s settee!
