Were you stoked about the Medieval gaming room, but your gamer style lean more towards the 8-bit than the old time-y? Or are you thinking about tricking out your game room, or maybe if you just want to make the mundane task of turning on lights a LOT more fun, you're going to want to check out this newest product by Think Geek. The Power-Up Arcade Light Switch Plate lets you turn any light switch into a retro arcade game.

Over the past year, I've favorited a lot of photos containing this color combination. Some of them are of actual interiors, or homes, or at least buildings, but some of them are of waterfalls over tunnels in sides of mountains in China.
So short of having straight up torches on the walls or just living on a window-washer platform outside my apartment, forever looking in at dusk, how do I replicate that kind of light?
I am floored and excited to share with you these amazing skull door knobs. I can't tell if I would LOVE to encounter these in a home, or if it would freak my shit out to have these guys sneak up on me. The coolest part about them: they contain an extra little surprise when you touch 'em.
I'm poking around outdoor goodies these days — things to light up decks and patios on summer evenings, outdoor foodwear, and games — and I found a few really cute things I wanted to share with you.
Oh, how we love the starry skies popping up all over the place lately. In artwork, in home products, in themed BEDROOMS! There is nothing more relaxing than a serene reminder of the skies over our heads. In an ideal world, we'd all have a skylight over our beds and fall asleep under the stars, but since that's not feasible let's see how else we can catch a few stars for ourselves.
When looking at places to live, there are certain things that just don't cross your mind. I never realized how important lighting was until I started to rent. Apparently, I need a lot of light to function. Or, rather, I like having the option of a lot of light.
I grew up with a lot of light, I guess, so I didn't know I had this need until I got my first apartment. Now I know what I need to look for to be well-lit and happy.
I'm hot for lighting.
Built-in lighting is never adequate or cozy enough for me, so there are at least two additional lamps or lanterns in every room in our apartment to add ambiance.
I don't have much money, but I'm hoarder of unconventional items like burnt-out light bulbs, (no — really!) so I added up my scraps to make my most recent fixture: an upcycled light bulb chandelier!
