Crystal chandeliers have been a thing of the past, are a thing of the present and I think will easily be a thing of the future. A chandelier is such a classic piece when paired with a modern space, beauty happens!
I remember starting a few years back, everyone wanted a crystal chandelier. Mostly to decorate their entryway, child’s room, dining room and even laundry room with. The key is mixing the chandelier with the right ambience. The space that you can make the biggest impact with is the dining space. Above we see a very rustic dining space decorated with a large, dainty chandelier. There's contrast so it works!
Now this room gives me goose-bumps! The art collection alone is stunning. Throw in modern furniture and add that magnificent chandelier and you’ve created a picture perfect space. I’m sure at night, the chandelier gives off quite the twinkle lights.
Here is another rustic space, prettified with a crystal chandelier. This time the owner went with more of a brass look, which I appreciate next to all of those warm wood tones. It also pops against an all white room, along with the art.
Here's a couple pretty options.

It doesn’t take much to make a kitchen nook feel warm and inviting, but the lighting might be the most important element.
These adorable kitchen niches are usually small in scale, only being about to fit a small table. Yet, they maximize space by turning an awkward alcove into something useful. I remember using mine in my childhood home growing up to do projects and homework while my mom cooked dinner. Plus, there is something so peaceful about waking up and going to the kitchen to enjoy a warm up of coffee in your sunny nook.

If you don’t have a built-in nook in your kitchen (I certainly don’t, living in San Francisco), try to make one for yourself by adding a small table in a sunny corner of your living room or another empty spot in your home.
I currently use our bay window to achieve a “sitting area” feel and it’s my happy place to sit and enjoy myself.

I hope these nooks have inspired you to create your own!

The Bistrot, a vintage Parisian restaurant design with industrial glam influences, is all the buzz right now in Bali! The imaginations of design team Zohra Boukhari and her husband Blaise Samoy created something that is powerfully stunning, simply elegant and a perfect mix of industrial and glamorous.
The modern chandeliers and industrial pendant lights hang from the ceiling like a large art installation. Adding a modern crystal chandelier to your industrial space is a great way to add contrast. Boukhari has a way with materials. The aged finish on this bar warms up the place drastically and allows the new millwork to blend seamlessly with the existing architecture.

Pops of glam are really what make this industrial space unique. It's been carefully curated with beautiful furnishings, antiques and artifacts from around the Indonesian region, and mainly from the owners’ private collection.

And eclectic selection of table lamps are displayed on the wall like an art installation. How great is that?! See, a great table lamp can be used for anything!
Each element in the space looks as if it has it's own story to tell. The warmth and character in The Bistrot gives off a magical feeling and I'm sure the food is as magical as the interior. How does " Grilled Blood Sausage with Caramelized Pear or Citrus Cured Salmon with Watermelon and Herbed Feta" sound? Now we've all got one more reason to visit Bali, not that we need one!
Now that warmer weather has finally arrived, so has the ritual of spending hours upon hours outside. In fact, families today don’t just go outdoors to play, they create stylish outdoor living.
I love the concept of outdoor living (especially since its only 3 three short months for me). Things like eating meals, cozying up on a couch with a good book and even watching a movie outside are family favorites.
Creating a space to have these memorable and relaxing outdoor moments is fun. I love the bohemian look pictured above. There is cozy seating for adults which blends naturally and beautifully with the tepee for kids to hide out in (talk about fun).
If you are looking to create some ambiance or spruce up your outdoor dining space why not add modern lighting? You can always use outdoor lights but using lights intended for inside adds an unexpected element and makes the space all the more special.
Don’t forget to add seating for the little ones. Although there are many options for great outdoor furniture these days, using regular play chairs (pictured above) is charming. Little ones love anything that comes in their size.
So grab a few things from inside to take outside, add some lighting and cozy seating, get the grill going and have a happy and stylish summer!

Orange is one of those colors that took me some getting used to the idea of decorating with. It’s so bold and bright! Which can be a very good thing. Little pops of orange can really make a room or space a bit more cheery without having to invest in buying a whole new room. I have a tendency to keep my rooms a little boring and neutral. Hello grey! But with just a touch of a color like orange, you can transform a room. It’s fantastic!
This airy kitchen has the perfect amount of orange. The bright orange chairs really pop in the space and are really a focal point which is kind of perfect. There are a few orange accents in the cupboards as well and in other places to help bring it all together. I love it!

This lamp is awesome. It has a kind of industrial feel because of its design and shape, but it's also fun and cheery because of the white and orange. It would look fantastic in a space in need of a little character! The tray is a great piece to have on a end table to catch random items or to serve drinks to guests. Again, the orange is so much fun and a total eye catcher! And this orange tribal print pillow looks great with the grey and helps to tone it down slightly so it will work with the rest of the room. Isn’t it a great pillow?
