Totally Trippy Pendant Lights by Bertjan Pot

Friday, November 23rd, 2012

Yes, that was intentional. I just couldn’t help myself. 🙂 I’ve said it before, and I am sure I’ll say it again: The Dutch are so crazy creative and their designs are always so unique – what is it that makes them think not just outside of the box, but way, way beyond it? Whenever […]

An Unusual Take On Real Estate Photography

Thursday, May 24th, 2012

I recently discovered the interestingly-named Stockholm (Sweden) real estate broker firm Fantastic Frank. While one might feel that the name is a tad, I don’t know, hokey? Silly? Odd?, they have some really great listings, and what I like most of all is the unusual and very cool photography. They hire film and fashion stylists […]

Classic And Contemporary Wall Lights

Monday, February 21st, 2011

While it may seem like they are mostly there for utilitarian purposes, light fixtures can have a huge impact. We just had a new ceiling pendant lamp put up in our bedroom the other day, and it completely changed the look and feel of the room. It went from being a space we never spent […]

Wall lamps definitely fall under the category “functional wall decor”, but that doesn’t mean they have to be plain and boring (as we saw in my wall sconces post).

Wall Candle Holders

Sunday, September 12th, 2010

Fall is around the corner and the air is getting crisper and the days shorter. Candles are nice any time of year, but I especially like them in the fall and winter, a little bit of cozy comfort in all that darkness and coldness. And they’re perfect when you have company over too. Not only […]

Baby Nursery Decor Inspiration

Sunday, August 15th, 2010

This post is not only about wall decor but decorating in general, and decorating nurseries in particular. It’s one of the most fun types of rooms to design, and you have free reins to use items, materials and colors you normally wouldn’t. Having said that, I have to confess that I prefer nurseries with a […]

Chandeliers On The Wall

I have always loved chandeliers. To me, they bring up nostalgic images of European castle ballrooms filled with people in gorgeous outfits dancing the night away, extravagant theater lobbies, the Moscow subway, old churches with enormous (and sometimes very unusual) chandeliers hovering above the visitors, or here in the US, grandiose estates owned by the […]

Wall lights have been popular for centuries, and they have certainly come a long way from the wall candle holders of the middle ages. Today you can find pretty much any design you can think of to illuminate your walls (although candles are still a very popular choice). As you know by now (if you […]

Cool Wall Decor From Sweden & Norway

Friday, May 14th, 2010

There is always new, exciting design coming from Scandinavia, ranging from ultra-modern, super-sparse, understated and totally white interiors to fun, colorful, crazy and wacky furniture and accessories. Some may teeter on the edge of tacky, but most of the time, they are items with style and flair. And so many are timeless – just look […]
