REINCARNATION: Woven Pendents

I never thought finding lighting and light fixtures would be the most difficult things to find on our home renovation, but boy was I wrong! I spent hours looking for the perfect light fixtures that were great for our space, but also unique. There are so many cookie cutter light fixtures, and little do people know you CAN find something unique for your space at the same price. I thought I would dedicate this lighting post to a very unique type of light fixture I found, the woven pendant. Pendents are a great light fixture in any room, over tables, in hallways, and over bars! Here are some of my favorite home-spiration images for woven pendants and a few of my favorite finds for your space!

REINCARNATION: Floor Lamp Favorites

Happy Monday morning everyone! I thought I would bring a little light to everyone’s week and talk about, well of course, lights! When I used to think of floor lamps I would think of the plastic floor lamp from Target that was in my dimly lit dorm room. Tacky and not functional. However, of recent I have rediscovered the beauty of the floor lamp when searching for lighting for our living room. Here are some of my favorite home-spiration images of floor lamps a few amazing options for any space!

REINCARNATION: Lantern Lighting

I have spent a HUGE (maybe inordinate) amount of time shopping for light fixtures. In our previous renovation posts you see that we got rid of our brass light fixtures and updated them. One great trend I came across while researching our dining room table fixture was lantern inspired lighting. We ended up going with a round chandelier type fixture, but I do still love the idea! Here are some of my favorite home-spiration images for lantern lighting and a few great fixtures in case you get inspired by the idea!

INSTAPOST: Renovation Update

It has been a very very busy time in the Stephenson household. We are planning our wedding, working full time, oh and completely remodeling our first floor! The dust and concrete would be enough to drive someone crazy, thankfully David and I have a good sense of humor! They say home renovations are 80% prep work and we are living that right now! David has done an amazing job prepping our house for paint, tile, and hardwoods! Our first area of focus when we get to flooring will be our powder room, you never realize how convent a bathroom on the first floor is, until you have to rip our the toilet and sink! Here are some of our recent renovations photos so you can see the madness that is going on!

The tile AND mortar are gone in the kitchen! (excuse our messiness... it is hard to live in a construction zone and still be chic!)

And finally a great shot of a freshly painted ceiling and my man installing one of many new light fixtures in our home! A huge THANK YOU to David's mom for helping him paint and making sure he was safe... also for getting me this picture! :)

David is in charge of the renovation agenda, so you will have to ask him whats going to happen next, but I think it will be painting the walls, cabinets, and backsplash! Or it could be finishing up the powder room! We have so much to choose from here! More DIY and renovation posts to come!

 

REINCARNATION: Industrial Pendant Light

So David is quite the handy man around the house these days! Nothing is better than a man who really knows his way around Home Depot (no matter how many trips we take there on a give weekend 😉 ) We are doing small projects around the house that make a BIG difference, and one of those projects is changing out our dated lighted fixtures! I am currently on the hunt for some great light fixtures, and one of them is an industrial pendant light for over my kitchen table. Here are some of my favorite home-spiration images for industrial pendant lights and a few of my favorites that I have found while shopping!

HOME-SPIRATION: Chandeliers

Think the whole idea of a chandelier in a room is so romantic, and maybe a bit gaudy. But I think there is something romantic about a chandelier. I really wanted to see if there was a way for chandeliers to look modern and natural in a room. Here are a few of my favorite rooms where chandeliers really work and look amazing!
