Have you ever spent time on the Lamps Plus website?  It’s kinda like lamp heaven and you can easily get sucked in and find yourself spending hours looking all their fabulous lighting.

Lamps Plus is one of my go-to sources for stylish lighting (especially when the budget goes beyond the big box stores).  On a recent lamp binge I unearthed some fabulous lighting options and found myself hummingyou light up my life, which by the way was a favorite of mine back in the day.  Anyway,  I don’t want to be alone in my fixation with Lamps Plus lighting so I’m going to get you hooked with my newest discoveries–from ceiling to floor!  Check them out and you can thank me later.

Slide1

This Antique Brass Ceiling Light would look great in a kitchen or powder room or even in a kitchen pantry.
 The Liberty Gold Ceiling Light is just screaming to be placed in a powder room or hallway.  
You gotta love the Feiss Urban Renewal Wide Brass Ceiling Light  for a boy’s room or mud room.
The classic styling of the Jonathan Adler Parker Wide Brass Ceiling Light make it perfect for a bathroom, small foyer or closet.

Two of these Alcazar Brass and Mercury Glass Table Lamp on a console table would be stunning. 
I’d put this  Dimond Farmhouse Antique Brass Table Lamp   in a men’s office or kids play/study area.
The Spotlight Brass Table Lamp would be a stylish way to accent a desk or craft area.
The Robert Abbey Sloan Aged Brass and Crystal Table Lamp is screaming “put me on a marble top side table.”
One on his nightstand and one on mine–that’s where I’d put this Robert Abbey Alice Antique Brass Table Lamp
So many places the Robert Abbey Fineas Alabaster and Brass Table Lamp could go–dining room buffet, bedroom, sofa table!

Slide3

I can just envision the Circuline Satin Brass Floor Lamp next to a big comfy chair and ottoman.
 The Astor Antique Brass Tripod Pharmacy Floor Lamp is perfect for a study, next to a leather sofa.
What a beauty this Arteriors Home Norman Glass and Vintage Brass Floor Lamp would be flanking a dark navy sofa and framing a fun gallery wall of art.

In my book every day of the year is a great day for a party.  And when it comes to party decor, I’m always on the hunt for unique and creative ideas to add to my party planning file.  On a recent Pinterest binge I came across a few images that were not only beautiful but that spoke to my creativity.  These tablescapes look sophisticated and elaborate but it is the details that make them great.  Details that can be achieved with a little creativity.

Do you make changes to your decor for summer?  I do and think the season of sun is the perfect time to add a bit of color to your decor.

Color can be added through textiles, tabletop decor, lighting or accessories.  A little pop goes a long way.

Design Tip:  For a quick and easy DIY color update, paint a large art canvas in a bold color and then layer a smaller fabric wrapped canvas on top (use Command strips or velcro to hold the smaller piece in place).

One of my personal goals this year was to learn.  I want to learn how to do new things, how to better my business and personal life and how to be a better person all-around.  Yes, learning takes time and energy but I’ve come to recognize that there is something to learn from every photo I look at, from every person I meet, from every new place I visit and from every blog that I follow.

Learning fuels my creativity, pushes me to new limits and challenges me to reach for my goals.

When it comes to entertaining, I am more about the decor than I am about the food.  I’ve learned a lot about how to create a beautiful party buffet from my friend Robyne, who happens to be food genius and makes some of the most amazing sweet treats ever.

Robyne has taught me that presentation is everything when it comes to party food so I pulled together some ideas to show you just how easy it is to make your party food pretty.

Happy Friday!  What have you been up to this week?  This week has been kind of crazy for me with lot of balls in the air and lots of projects in work. Today I thought I’d share the inspiration for a project I’m working on at home and a few links that I think you’ll enjoy.

I’m in the mood to give my workspace a little update and these office spaces are my inspiration…

When it comes to decorating my home, like most of you I want to invest in pieces that will serve me long-term.  I need pieces that are classic and timeless but allow me to change the look of my decor from time to time (which is the norm rather than the exception) without costing a lot of money.

When it comes to design, I love a good architectural detail.   Details that have a sense of style and history to them and that add character to a home.  Corbels are one of my favorite architectural accents.  Do you know what a corbel is?  Basically it is a structural piece of stone, wood or metal that juts out from a wall and is meant to hold-up or carry weight.

Corbels have been used for centuries in building construction and over the years have become a decorative element that people are adding to the interior decor of their homes.
