Its UP!!

And soo purdy.


This was my delicious Friday night. After my dad left (he was here with me all day, fixing things, and teaching me how to install dimmers, oh and installing my baby here.) I fluffed up my new Wandering Pods Pillow, poured a glass of crisp white wine, and slipped on my snugly, pink Christmas pajamas to watch my hubby vacuum. ahahhhahahahah


In real life, this room looks much less cluttered than it does in photos, for some reason. I love how high it is, and that it doesn't hang into the room, like a giant sleeping bat, or hovering octopus, like the last light fixture.

note: I bought mine from Practical Props, in Hollywood, it is the 36", satin brass with a standard 16" drop. I bought a new one, even though vintage ones abound, because I didn't want to have to deal with re-wiring, which can be expensive for such a complex fixture. I paid a lot for shipping, and I was not to happy with the condition of the box when it arrived. It was way flimsy, I am actually surprised it survived the journey. Customer service was meh.


That there is another new painting, by the way.

HAPPY MONDAY!

  2. Okay, you don't know me from Eve so this will sound really strange...

    Can you let me know when you'll be out of the house for a couple of hours? I want to drag a man in that room and get it on while staring at that gorgeous light.

    I promise to put down sheets and not circulate the pictures.

  3. Thanks for the information. I'm seriously considering this light for my keeping room. It looks fabulous in your fabulous room. Would you order from them again knowing what you know now??? By the way, I have a great local source for rewiring and lighting fixes in general. They've fixed a few craigslist lighting purchases for me and I couldn't be happier with workmanship and pricing.

    The painting-amazing! Your house looks beautiful!

  19. I just ordered one of these light fixtures after finding your living room images on Pinterest! Such a beautiful space! I've been hunting for a really dramatic light fixture that doesn't hang too low in my foyer. This is it! Thanks for the inspiration and the source.
