Amethyst Glass Lamp

Posted on | March 7, 2011 | 24 Comments

I have been eyeing this specific lamp for years. Seriously. While I was doing my morning blog cruising I came across a glass lamp round-up on Remodelista. I was scrolling down thinking seen it, seen it, and then the Cherub lamp (my favorite from Ochre) and it was on sale for $225 marked down from $800 (update: no longer on sale after march 7th)! After about two hours of mulling it over, I called Ochre with full intentions of buying just one and then I went for it and bought a pair! This is totally unlike me to be so nonchalant about a big decorating purchase. As you all know…how long it took me to pick my molding color, ha! But I think they’ll be beautiful as a set in my bedroom or maybe one in the den with the green molding? So exciting.

Inspiration from Mt. Washington Hotel

Posted on | February 1, 2011 | 14 Comments

This past week I’ve been talking with Greg about putting a light at the top of our stairwell—A few things have to happen before we can actually do this like maybe taking down the ceiling. He was totally against the idea of hanging a ceiling lamp and thought we should do sconces on the walls instead.

In the Rosebrook bar at the Mt. Washington hotel I looked up to find exactly the light I was trying to explain: the bell jar lantern. He really likes the style and how the glass reflects rings onto the ceiling. I’ve spotted a few similar versions at Pottery Barn, Circa Lighting, and Shades of Light but I’ll have to keep looking because it can’t be too big or long. Below a few more pieces from the hotel that we found inspiring.
