Lighting Roundup

Lighting is one of the most important parts of decorating- both for the way your space is illuminated (functionally and mood-wise) and because fixtures can make such a big statement in a space.  There are cool new items coming out all the time so I thought I;d round up some of my favorite new fixtures found at some of my go-to online shopping sites for such things: Circa Lighting, Shades of Light, West Elm, Laura U, Rejuvenation and even Etsy!

Gilt-y Finds From Kids Sources!

I was flipping through some magazine this week when I spotted this perfect gold canopy bed… and lo and behold it was from Pottery Barn Teen! I got to poking around and found a bunch of great gilt pieces I never thought in a MILLION years I could find here.

The aforementioned canopy bed- it doesn’t come in king, but if you need a queen (or two twins) this is fantastic.

A killer gold leg trestle desk. So awesome.

There is nothing “teen” about this bookcase! A [air flanking a fireplace or window would be STUNNING!

Target + Safavieh Roundup

Target’s latest line with Safavieh has me yelping “That’s from Target?!” left and right these days. I am dying to nab a bunch of these insanely good items for my new addition (which starts in about a week and a half so get ready for lots of renovation posts!)  Here’s my most favorite picks right now (get ‘em while they last!):

Sponsor Welcome: Circa Lighting

There are some vendors that we use over and over again in our daily work at EGD, and Circa Lighting is certainly one of them. So when they asked to become a sponsor I could not think of anything more natural. Their massive and gorgeous collection of lighting is astounding and a designer favorite the world over.  I think it’s an invaluable resource for everyone to have in their back pocket for times of lighting need- here are some of my favorites:

Flush Mounts: An attractive flush mount fixture IS possible! I used the classic star in my entryway (but am way in love with the NEW multi-point star!) I also used the small Paris Flea Market on my closet ceiling recently and it’s so girly and charming.

Chandeliers & Pendants: There are so many good ones here- from kitchen pendants to dramatic dining room chandeliers. We LOVE the classic, antique looking Paris Flea Market Chandelier at EGD, and of course the Hicks pendants (the two tone I used in my kitchen, and have since moved them into the mudroom on a short chain as a ceiling fixture!)

Sconces:  Sconces are really important in bath lighting, but also in other areas of the house. There are SO many to love- from the classic Bryant I have in my bathroom to the Boston Library Sconce with it’s fab arched arm (and name!) Modern or traditional, there are a ton of options.

On My Radar: New Finds from Target & West Elm

These days there is no excuse for bad decor since there is SO MUCH good design going on at retail stores all over.  Here are my current faves from two I shop at constantly: Target and West Elm.

I have loved every collection that Nate Berkus has released with Target thus far, but this one may take the cake!  Done almost entirely in my favorite palette of black, gold, wood and white I am ALL OVER these great finds.

I’m thinking these brass and stone modern lamps would look awesome in our new office.  And this pillow is all sorts of hot stuff.

LOVE this gold framed accent table, it look a hell of a lot more expensive then it is.  For more of a natural look try this woven stool.

img2 14555656_201307011600

A super hip two tone mirror and gold accent piece perfect for dressing up a bookshelf or console table.

14556495_201307301529 img5

A pair of folding metal campaign stools are great for the end of a bed or under a console table, and this gold candelabra would make a great centerpiece on a dining table in lieu of flowers.

14558272_201305301320 14556496_201306271200

These faux marble trays and this faux bone inlay frame are fabulous accents for any space.

And while we’re talking about Target, check out these other insanely great items from their Threshold line.  High style at a low price.  For example, a brass and wood bar cart for under $130 and a leather strap mirror for under $25.

14556506_201307221516 14523640_130517103000

Totally crazy about these two side tables- both the brass and wood and brass wire.

14523634_201306041135 14327352_130206020000

How about this sleek wood octagon mirror and gold based gourd lamp??

And now onto West Elm, which is KILLING it right now too with their new releases! I mean, I can;t tell you how many time I sat up and yelled “SO GOOD!” while perusing the site.

First and foremost, these nailhead pieces, side table and dresser- DYYYYIIINNNNG.

I was SO pumped to see they partnered with Boston based furniture maker Richard Watson to make an affordable version of his INCREDIBLE highboy (right) which I have been lusting after since seeing it at the gorgeous Beacon Hill shop Good.  Someday I will have one.

img25o highboy-01

A great daybed perfect for a space that serves double duty, like an office/guest room and a bar that look like perhaps it was vintage.

img35o img43o

AWESOME capiz shell fixtures that would look amazing above this wood dining table.

img13o img22o

LOVE the mid-century collection- especially the new black and brass pieces like the desk and dresser.

img img2

LOVE this brass and black floor lamp, may have to get for my house. Also these simple stripe throws are great.

img54o img8o

Everyone needs a furry throw for fall and winter- faux fur or mongolian lamb adds great texture to your decor (and my dogs are obsessed with snuggling on mine).

img52o img6o

How sculptural and cool is this towel rack???? And these toasters with wood panels???

img38o img28c

Totally getting this gold rimmed jewelry box for my new dresser, absolutely gorgeous way to display your trinkets. For a bit of bling elsewhere, his gilded pillow will do.

img82o img77o

You all know I can’t say no to a good stripe- these wool pillows and bedding (not new, but rather re-released) are so awesome.

img16o img17c

Love the gold bottom weekender with stripes (kind of made for me) and this little anchor oven mit!!!!
