Call it Re-Purposed, Recycled, or Upcycled…whatever you call it, it is “green” and oh so cool! I am in love with this re-purposed lighting collection from “Shades of Light”.
This re-purposed ladder makes the most fabulous “vintage chic” floor lamp! So “Anthropologie-like”.
My favorite piece is this spring pendant. So cute!
I love to find new places for inspiration. I found a great one today on “Young House Love“. A post about designer Sarah Richardson introduced me to a new favorite designer. I have seen Sarah’s show a couple times on HGTV, but never looked up her design portfolio untill today. I am in love with her work and so excited to recreate some of her designs in my own home. Such an inspiration!!
As we speak I am having my two “Goodwill” chairs upholstered in white linen. I am so excited to put them in my bay window like ab0ve with some creamy silk drapes behind!! LOVE!
I don’t have a room this big in my home, but I love this room! The soft neutral palette is so soothing!
I love the tile work in this bathroom!
This look is a little too clean for my home, but I love the colors and the brightness!
A great ideas for a DIY desk/vanity in my bay window in the master bedroom.
This is the room featured on Young House Love. I have seen that pendant for sale on “Shades of Light.com” in case anyone is wondering. I love this room, even though I don’t normally go for yellow.
The combination of dining chairs, wing-back chairs, and a bench is such a creative way to seat an old farmhouse table.
Of course, I love this room because of the pink!!
I call Him “old” because the owl is a vintage trend come back to life. I call him “wise” because it is wise to love all things owls right now. I call him “owl” well because he is an owl. This table lamp from “Shades of Light”, is absolutely adorable and the best owl lamp I have seen. Did I say ADORABLE? See below for more cute owl stuff.
Well I am on a roll. First I find a fabulous rug, “my new favorite”, then I find this beautiful lamp at one of my favorite lighting sources “Shades of Light“. I am truly digging on the french blue with the cream “Patesserie” stamp! It reminds me of an old tin they might have kept flour in at the old Patesserie’s in Paris!! I am in LOVE!
I’ve seen this lamp in person and the picture doesn’t completely do it justice. The lamp shade is the perfect shade of cream burlap, and the french blue is so soft and distressed just enough. They did such a fantastic job designing this one!
I really liked the cream with brown as well. It has a sort of French Country Milk Jug vibe. I went with the blue for my home though.
The lantern is the new chandelier, and I am so excited about it! I love this trend because it is so universal. You can use indoor hanging lanterns with any decor. Modern to traditional, you name it, it will work. This is actually an historic trend brought back to life recently. You will find a lot of glass-globe lanterns in hictoric home across America, a lot of which used to be candle burning (before electricity) and have since been electrified. CotedeTexas just published a great post about hunting down antique French lanterns, which are beautiful (go check it out). Shades of Light (a national lighting catalog) is a great resource if you are looking to delve into this classic “trend”. Check out the pics at the bottom of this post to see a small sample of there collection.
