Golden globes

February 17, 2012

Love these lights that are featured in a NY city loft  designed by the Novagratz duo Cortney and Robert. They are big and bold and really give some impact and height to the room.

Ah ha! Not sure if these are the same the colors is a bit different and the size seem off. But I like these too!

Tuesday’s Find

December 6, 2011

Totally grooving on a new(to me) lighting line I came across at my last trip to my lighting resource.  Cyan Designs has chandeliers that were fun and funky, lamps that would pull a room together and accessories with some real character. The prices were great too so let me know if there is anything you like and I can help you!

We thought about what goes into a the perfect weekend and here are some of our favorite ideas:

Colorful Bedroom

A happy weekend begins with sleeping in. This pretty bedroom is a gorgeous mix of color and pattern. The sunny gingko pattern wallpaper would be lovely to wake up to.

Brunch Table Setting

While the weather is still warm, having breakfast outdoors is a lovely way to start a weekend day. Have a brunch and make it feel special with real china and cloth napkins.

Wooden Cutting Board

A rustic style breakfast is just as charming as a more fancy brunch. Think outside the box for serving ideas… love the wood cutting board instead of a plate.

Bathroom Lighting

A happy bathroom makes getting up in the morning easier. This crisp blue and white bathroom is from Sarah Jessica Parker’s weekend house. So charming, from its simple wall sconcesdown to the unexpected pails as wastebaskets.

Happy Weekend

A happy weekend typically involves scouting the local flea markets, estate sales, church rummage sales and yard sales for vintage finds. Art, furniture, and even the odd find, like taxidermy, are great additions for the home.

Book filled shelves, comfortable sofas for reading or watching movies… a cozy library or den is a must for a lazy, rainy weekend. We definitely adore the single pendant lighthanging right above the table.

Outdoor Lighting

Outdoor dining in the evening bathed in candlelight and surrounded by the laughter of good friends makes for a happy weekend. Set up a long table outdoors and line it with mismatched chairs. Lanterns or hanging string lights would be lovely light in addition to the candles.

Bathroom Design

The end to a happy weekend? A long, long soak in a hot tub. A chandelier is a perfect light fixture for the bathroom because it adds sparkle and transforms the functional into the sublime.
