You Can’t Always Get What You Want

I almost titled this “Stop adding this stuff to your cart Jordan, you can’t ever have it.” We are starting to actually decorate the house (way more fun than redoing the electrical!) But lately I’ve found that I’ll narrow down my lighting options for the dining room and realize none of the tabs open in my browser cost less than $9000. Since when did my taste get so expensive? I’m a big believer in saving up for the one thing that is really special and makes your heart happy but $9,000?!?!?!? That is not happening. My father would roll over in his grave and send me another copy of “The Richest Man in Babylon” from heaven. No judgement to the people that can afford it (um…can I come over to your house and look at your light fixtures? ) Anyway, it’s still fun to dream about all the pretty things out there. What is on your dream list?

You can't always get what you want.

A. Lawson Fenning Chair (I think I would have it upholstered in linen.) B. David Weeks Mobile Light is gorgeous. C. This Cherner chair is so sexy. It’s like a sculpture. D. I love the clean lines and brass details on this Milo Baughman chair. E. This light fixture is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.

DIY Honeycomb Birds

by Kathleen Ballos

Do you love honeycombs as much as I do?  With Easter right around the corner, I spotted egg-shaped honeycombs at Target and thought they would be perfect for making these springy bird decorations! Make a few and hang them around a dessert table this Easter – and once Easter is over, wouldn’t they be fun for a baby shower too?
