Ready for more of my favorite sources? I’ve got 45 amazing lights to share with you today and more where that came from. Many of you requested lighting sources, and I knew to do it right I would have to break it up by type and do several lighting roundups. I am kicking it off [...]
I shared the first reader project roundup in late January and I think it is time for another. But before I show off what my readers have been doing, I want to reiterate something very important…I have a mission with this blog. It is simple.
My mission is to share things [...]
Have you seen the lamp selection at Lowe’s lately? I was pleasantly surprised. They have a lamp bar…choose your base, then choose from a selection of shades.
I found this shapely chrome lamp base and sleek black lampshade for under $40. I actually liked the same lamp base in oil rubbed bronze with a white [...]
It may be an overdone trend, but you simply can’t deny that sometimes you just have to put a bird on it. Well, a few years back I put a few birds on the lamp shades in our master bedroom and I still love them today. Just to be clear, they are our only bird [...]
As I wrap up the last few projects in the nursery, I am gearing up to do some updates in our master bedroom. We used to pride ourselves on always having a well-designed bedroom. For many people it is the last room they decorate, because they focus on the more public living spaces in the [...]

We just spent the weekend in Chicago for a quick getaway. One of the top things on my “sightseeing” list was the Jonathan Adler store. I was excited to find our hotel was only a few blocks away. After dinner at the hotel we ventured out into the city. The air was [...]
Have you ever heard of ceiling drapes? I asked my husband what to title this post. He was stumped at first, but when he thought about what he would google to find a project like this it was ceiling drapes. I laughed at first, then he actually typed it in Google. Sure enough it is [...]
The foyer just needs a few minor updates and they all include creative projects I have been dreaming up while working on the adjacent dining room. We already hung art in the arched niches and added a few rugs, but the [...]
You are about to see the crowning jewel of the dining room. I have long loved the Cellula chandelier, although the price tag makes me faint. The dining room mood board included the lower-end linear strand crystal chandelier, but the $349 price tag [...]

Eek!!! I am so excited, my first guest post will be up soon on Someday Crafts. I picked a pretty ambitious project…to add some wow to my DIY drum shade pendant. Before you see the full tutorial, I just wanted to share some more background [...]
I believe you should surround yourself with beautiful things. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. With that in mind, the pendant lights over our kitchen island had to be replaced. Why? Because they were not beautiful to us. The textured amber shades only gathered dust and cast dim light.
