Cozy Lights for the New Patio

Cozy Lights for the New Patio

It feels so good to have the pergola mostly finished (we still have to stain it but we’ve relented…that just isn’t going to happen until spring).  We had a little gathering of friends and hastily put up some lights so that we could see at night and so that we had a little ambiance. Without…

Friday Five: Gorgeous Gnomes

I’m off for the weekend – literally – catching a flight in the morning for Richmond, VA.  I’ll be spending some sweet time with friends as we gather to catch up on our personal celebrations (big birthdays, big moves, big changes, big accomplishments). I can’t wait! But before I go — I’ve got a little…

Friday 5: Outdoor Patterns

Oh boy, I used to think I was the kind of person who handled change really well, but this week put my just-go-with-it mentality to the test. It was the first week of school being out and the last week that I am letting my little people go without highly structured levels of ‘something to…

Help!

I am not sure why it rarely occurs to me that I can ask you all questions too when I need some help….but it just did…so I thought I would throw out a few things that I am looking for some input on. 1) I have been coveting light fixtures like these for a few…

Minali Singh’s Lotus Lamps & Rocket Planters

As I have sort of begun to organize the chicken coop/ potting shed I am – with every item that gets discarded – wanting to fill the space with terracotta and other sweet containers for making indoor  and mini gardens.  I’ve discovered that perusing flea markets and consignment shops with the specific purpose of digging up pots,…

Inspiration Board: Black Urban Earthy

I love imagining gardens and outdoor rooms that have a distinct look and feel and when I start to play with ideas I always start with words. Specifically the words that appeal to me at that moment, or to the people whose space I am working on. When I started messing around with Studio ‘g’ and the…

Branch & Stump Lights by Marco Steffanelli

By day, I suspect these light to be hardly worth noticing.  After all, the resin has been shaped and molded to be an exact replica of the section of wood (or cement) that it was drawn from.  But by night…..it is quite different.   Italian designer Marco Stefanelli has created a series of these “naturally” formed lights…

Weekend Things

Weekend Things

Is the weather crazy where you are?  New England is having stormy weather like I haven’t seen since I lived in Colorado (fast moving afternoon thunder/tornado storms seemed to always be expected).   As I type this I am still trying to dry off from the 20 second dash from my car into a store…

Street Glamour

Street Glamour

This picture got me wondering…just what might this streetscape look like if the LA and Planners who were putting it together just went all out and indulged in some hard core pimped out street glamour. I know I am being a little bit silly with this, But it’s Monday morning – whatever. The idea of chandelier street…
