Light it Up


It’s time to take a break from the election and even from fall posts about sweaters and scarves. Because today, we’re talkinga about lighting, which is one of the most important decor decisions you’ll make during the decorating process and an excellent way to up your decor game in a somewhat simple room. .

I love interiors but didn’t bother changing out a lighting fixture until moving into my 5th Chicago apartment, and doing so completely transformed my living room. It cost $40 to have someone from TaskRabbit come out for an hour, and then it’s a matter of saving the old piece and changing it out again before moving out. So worth it.

My landlord bought my Serge Mouille style fixture from me, so I ordered a new one from France and Son. It’s currently out of stock but will be back in soon!inside-a-bright-open-plan-home-with-a-midcentury-vibe-1861809-1470683818-640x0c
Not looking for a ceiling fixture? It comes in sconce form, too. 16c5e2fd428e2e04e780c86327f5e8d5
And in a floor lamp, too.
Love this plug-in sconce seen in this home tour on The Everygirl.
This piece from CB2 is a favorite that I recently placed in a client’s home. And it’s priced at only $129!
This piece is a splurge, but the Robert Abbey Bling Chandelier is a new favorite.

And I just feel like this guy would be fun at a holiday party. Or above a bar.
