My mind is on Spring. Fresh air, open windows, bright flowers, and finally enjoying the outdoors without a parka on -- preferably with these lining my deck.
The Glowing Gregg from Foscarini. Made from free-blown glass and available in 3 sizes, Foscarini describes Gregg with the loving language of a parent: “An organic, elegant and familiar shape that does not use pure geometry as its point of reference.”
Maybe the Easter bunny will drop a few in my basket.

I usually cringe at the word "crystal," but these are stunning. Maybe it's because I'm reading an Elizabeth Taylor, but I am desparate for them.

As someone who trips over their own feet and frequently stumbles during midnight trips to the bathroom, I find the Landing Lighting design from Kim HyunJoo, with it's unique light omission, to be not only ingenius, but a neccessity.

Blinded by the light
I am a self-proclaimed scaredy cat. While I live in a city, my property is surround by several large, beautiful trees -- perfect for creating shadows and, in my mind, hiding spots. If I could install stadium lighting around my home and not be in violation of several city codes, I would.
Instead of infuriating my neighbors and run the risk of being arrested, I would like to place these delightful light installations from Rotoluxe around my yard.

I am ashamed to admit that, for the past 3 years, my landscape and yard has been accessorized with the standard solar light that is sold in every major retail chain across the country. I'm not proud. It was a purchase made out of necessity.
As I pulled weeds, trimmed branches, and raked mulch, the crew was hard at work building a beautiful new porch onto my home.
Now I need beautiful accent lighting to match my new, streamlined yard.
The Walkover Lighting by Roberto Paoli for Serralunga are fresh, modern, and my new favorite!

A new pendant
Pendant lamps have been all the rage for the past few years -- and I have grown very, very tired of them. Here, is a slightly different pendant -- inspired by lily pads floating in water. The Lily Pendant Chandelier.

They seem like painting collages at first or perhaps some artsy sculptures that people use to spice up areas. But these are actually lamps that were designed to change the ambiance of rooms in a hurry.
