Concept designs for the new River Thames pedestrian bridge in London.
There's currently an awesome design competition going on in London. There have been 74 design proposals for the new pedestrian and cycle bridge. And they're all amazing. So happy I don't have anything to do with selecting a winner, which will be announced in July...
...Let alone constructing any one of these complicated designs which will span the River Thames between Nine Elms and Pimlico.
Naturally, our favorites, here at Euro Style Lighting, are those that seem to feature LED lighting. We couldn't think of a better use for LED tape lights and LED path lights.
The purpose of this competition, besides being exposed to cool design, is "to identify the best team capable of designing and delivering a unique landmark."
Best of luck to all the amazing designers who have submitted their ideas...

Rustic modern living room in need of a stylish coffee table.
While some living rooms may look okay without a coffee table, perhaps a couple poufs instead, we strongly suggest a stylish coffee table in every living room. Just like every contemporary living room should have comfortable seating, a side table and modern lighting.
Here's some of our favorite coffee tables that we might add to this space above:

Create your ultimate romantic space with crystal chandeliers.
As we close out this month of romance, let's discuss the easiest way to add a little some to your modern home.... Gorgeous chandeliers!
If you add a beautiful crystal chandelier to any room of your house, I guarantee you'll add instant romance. Also, a little pink can go a long way, like in this loft home above.

Crystal chandeliers stand out in neutral spaces.
You don't have to include pink, or any color, to achieve a romantic environment. Take a look at this space above, it's neutral and totally feminine.
The crystal chandelier makes a big impact, but so do other details, like the ornate mirror and console.

Achieve a romantic space with dark walls and crystal chandeliers.
Want to go bold? Pastels and neutrals don't have ownership over feminine interior design.
This moody space above, featuring a crystal chandelier and comfy furniture, is super romantic. A perfect place to cap off a night out on the town.

Modernism Week in Palm Springs celebrated their tenth year.
The annual Palm Springs event Modernism Week took place last week, celebrating their tenth anniversary. Each year this event celebrates beautiful mid-century modern design (interior and exteriors), architecture and art.
There's hundreds of events going on throughout the week to keep you busy, including home tours, showhouses and parties. Here are a few key highlights:
Some of the best modern architecture can be seen at Palm Springs Modernism Week.
The home tours include beautiful architecture as seen above and below. You can attend tours on your own pace by bike, walking or you can ride a bus and be guided through beautiful mid-century modern architecture.

There's no shortage of beautiful architecture in Palm Springs.
There is also a showhouse and fun events, like this one below. The producer of this year's showhouse was designer Christopher Kennedy, who clearly designed a modern oasis.

Birdman was the big winner at the Oscars last night.
Did you all watch the 2015 Oscars? Well, if you didn't then let me tell you that Birdman won for best movie. In honor of this well deserved win, I'd like to show you how to put a bird on your home design.
From modern lighting to home accessories, you can put a bird on anything. More importantly, it will look good with your contemporary style home.
Modern lighting fixtures, furniture and accessories featuring birds.
Since ancient times, birds have been thought to be symbols and forecasters of future events. I believe the Oscars have subtly informed us how important birds will be for interior design this year...
Above are some ideas to get you started on the bird trend.
1. Add wall art like this abstract art with birds.
2. Lighting is a great way to add a bird, or in this case a bronze nest chandelier.
3. I really like this quirky bird table lamp with a finial that is the head of the bird.
4. Have a seat in this bird watcher upholstered arm chair while enjoying a good movie.
5. Adding a pillow like this humming bird accent pillow adds the bird theme in a sophisticated manner.
6. This whimzy Angelo Home bird decorative pillow adds a pop of color as well as the bird theme.
There you have it, six ways to to put a bird on it. All inspired by the 2015 Oscars.
