lighting the way.

sometimes you can decorate a room around just one really extraordinary lighting fixture. a beautiful vintage fixture like this one from cafe no hut can literally light up a room, giving you one particularly swell source of inspiration — and then you just take off from there. that one truly unique and special fixture is all you need to make a room smashing, all on its own. here’s a few i’m inspired by.

  1. Yesssss. I feel like lighting fixtures are often under-appreciated and not given a second thought, but they’re so important for making the room!

    I have to say, the lighting in Darcy Miller’s home totally has me captivated.

  3. The white bed lamp inspires me and I am searching for that as its the best thing for late night studies. Recently I’ve a smaller one so that I can’t keep it on my eyes and have to move beside to get maximum light. I want this in blue color.

  6. I had a feature on Weekend Carnival on my to-do list. It’s to-done. Thanks for the reminder. I love that shop and the blog is to-die-for amazing. And those Muuto pendants are all mine (in my head).

    I love them all! But I think that my favorite is the last one… that pendant lamp upper the bedside table is gorgeous!
