monday musings: let there be light!

This past weekend, I did a little DIY myself on a lampshade I found to be super blah. There was nothing wrong with it per se, but its monochromatic self just wasn't doing it for my space. I had to zhush it up. That before and after is to come later on in the week. Stay tuned.

In the spirit of lighting, we decided to go through all of our fellow bloggers homes, and choose our favorite light fixtures. I love that the blogging community opens their homes to one another for creative inspiration. Here is a round up of our favorite lighting. As a disclaimer, these are in no particular order. We love you all equally!

First in the list we have Megan over at Honey Were Home and her amazing custom closet. Isn't this closet enviable? To. Die. For. The light fixture has taken our breath away.
Love the industrial fixtures in Megan's kitchen. 

Next, we have Jamie over at i suwannee. Her gorgeous bedroom was featured in the first volume of High Gloss Magazine, and for good reason. Look at these lamps!

Here is Kirsten's master bedroom from 6th Street Design School. LOVE the cobalt curvy lamps. They add such punch to the space.

Here is our girl Laurel over at Abode Love. For those of you who know us, Laurel's home and blog are one of our favorites. Here is her living room, with 3 noteworthy light fixtures. Chandelier? Check. Adorable table lamp? Check. Another adorable table lamp? Check.

Her hubby's man room. Leave it to Laurel to make even a guy's space absolutely gorgeous. 

Here is Sara's gorgeous chandelier in her fabulous eat in kitchen over at August Fields

This is a shot of Caitlin's eclectic and gorgeous home in Dubai over at Caitlin Wilson Design. This is her home no more, but she just moved to Hong Kong, and we cannot wait to see how she transforms her space there. 

These lamps are absolutely precious. They are from Emily's oldest daughter's room over at Emily A. Clark. We are obsessed with the color. Perfect for a big girls room. 

These next images are from Nicole's chic Utah condo over at Me Oh My. This lamp is so gorgeous, we cannot even take it. Paired with the beautiful feminine wallpaper...we just cannot get enough. 

Next up, we have Joi's entryway over at Nuestra Vida Dulce. Love the chinese pattern on this lamp. Its the perfect addition to this classic space. 

Last, but certainly not least, we have Nichole over at Parlour. This light fixture is out of control. Truly. We have featured Nichole before on her DIY decoupage table, which is also visible in this picture. This light fixture, and prepare yourself for what I am about to say made out of coffee filters. What?!?!? Truly. Nichole. You are amazing. 

We hope you all are enjoying your Monday. Make sure you remember to enter in our Mad Lucy giveaway, which ends on Friday. To come this week: Our DIY lamp shade transformation, as well as, a recipe to satisfy your Irish cravings.
