orbit chandelier

have you ever seen a chandelier more swoon worthy? i adore the whimsical and unexpected woven shape, and the exposed bulbs (a personal favorite). using a tension/compression design based on the same principal as suspension bridge – i’m certain that illuminating a space has never been more interesting.

let there be light

A while back I wrote a post lamenting over the loss of my old bedside floor lamp. After months and months of searching I finally found the perfect one!
This is what it looks like (in a gorgeous dining room that I wish was my own…):

LOVE these decorative knobs and handles. Perfect way to spruce up an old dresser or add some unexpected flair to an entrance way… The first row is my favorite – I am a sucker for distressed glass!

starbursts and lattice

I recently got myself some new sheets but absolutely wish I had seen these before purchasing! I am a huge fan of both the lattice and starburst print although I would have to say I favor the lattice – especially the yellow and gray. These are truly perfect for spring!

source of inspiration

I love these decor photographs of by Mark Lund. They are absolutely exquisite. I am also quite a fan of the styling in each space. Amazing uses of color, textiles, accent furniture and tasteful accessories. These beauties are inspiring!

golden light

I spotted these three lights on one of my favorite blogs oh joy! – I am a golden girl through and through so I absolutely adore these pendents. Tres chic!

shower curtain

I have decided to re-vamp some of the rooms in my apartment, well actually just two: the bathroom and bedroom. Since my bathroom is small this pretty much only allows for a new shower curtain, bath mat and maybe new decorative accessories. These are a few shower curtains that I like… Thoughts? I will be sure to keep you posted on other plans as they solidify. One thing is for certain – I am painting a wall in my bedroom! Exciting stuff!
