Apparently Pottery Barn Teen used to sell this really cool “Compose-It Chandelier.” But the super-crafty LolliePatchouli saw it in a magazine and had her “sweet and talented man build one at a price we could afford.” And she has been having fun re-styling it for almost every season for years now.
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!
Shopped for lighting lately? You probably found yourself disappointed by the white bread wood veneer choices at Home Depot. Our new sponsor Omega Too Lighting & Design will pull you out of the sad chandelier shopper slump.
I LOVED browsing their site. I got a very The Sims vibe, bouncing from art nouveau pieces to gothic chandeliers to candle sconces — you wanna see?
There’ve been so many nerdy, weird, awesome lighting designs popping up in my RSS feed, and I wanted a chance to look them over with you! My favorite? The handelier: a chandelier made of hands. GET IT?
You’ve probably seen Adam Wallacavage’s octopus chandeliers floating around the ‘net before — photos of them have made the rounds for a while now. I was happy to stumble over his other sculptures this week — and I kind of love them even more.
I cordially invite you to have a lady party with me, at which we’ll drink wine, dance to pop music, and create the most fab party room mankind can order from the internet. My favorite part? I don’t know if it’s the shiny wallpaper or the shiny couch or the shiny portable fireplace.
