Design Love: All of the Lights

I have an obsession with lights. The warm muted glow of a lamp, the bright definitive statement of a ceiling light, the throwback vintage of a wall sconce, the magic-carpet-ride of Christmas lights or string lights, the slight oriental touch of a globe lamp or paper lantern, the bold designer statement of hanging lights, the luxuriousness of a chandelier.

This industrial chandelier from Uncovet is one of the most gorgeous of its kind I’ve seen – and I already think that all industrial lighting is stunning. 18 lights, stained ebony wood, black wire, and hardware in antique silver and antique gold.


It’s really hard for me to handle the perfection of these minimalist wood hanging lights from Masahiro Minami design studio, appropriately titled ‘glory.’

Design Envy

I went on a Storeenvy frenzy today (for those who don’t know it, it’s an Etsy-esque online retailer) and below are some favorites.

Grace Note

“It seems like we constantly live in the future, always out of step with our present, always one season ahead. Always needing some new thing or the other in order to have the perfect life/ perfect home. I completely understand that  is how businesses have to work and I love the home catalogs and have hoarded many but as you go about your day, I want to leave you with a gentle reminder: your home is about you and the people you share your life with. Yes, it should be filled with beautiful things that give you pleasure every time your eyes fall on them. You marvel at the colors, the textures, the prints and patterns, the skill of the artisan. But it isn’t only about objects and things. As clichéd as this may sound, it’s about love, beautiful thoughts, kindness and compassion. Of being aware of your blessings. I don’t mean this in a naive, feel good, one size fits all way. Don’t you think every kind thought, word or gesture makes your surroundings more beautiful?”
