On a quest for the perfect pendant light

So, I have been searching a while now for a really cool pendant lamp. I would like a vintage one but I haven't found the right one yet. Needless to say that lately I have been lusting over lighting and everything is looking good to me now.

I really love chandeliers but I'm not quite sure if they'd fit with the style of the room, I guess I am going to have to wait to see what everything looks like in the rooms before I go lighting crazy. I did find a cool DIY tutorial on how to make a hemp wrap around lamp that they were selling at West Elm for a while.

Here is what the finished ones look like @ Craft Nest:

Wanting Some Wall Art

In celebration for moving to a new place this week I will be dedicating all my posts to cool interior design ideas.

As the days get closer to actually moving I am starting to think more about the finishing touches and details, we are almost done with all of our furniture shopping which is exciting! Searching on the abyss of the interweb I have found many different ideas on how to place the frames and where to get the prints.

I found a great resource yesterday for buying affordable prints called Print Society. There is a plethora of different artists that offer amazing prints from well known artists such as Mark Ryden and Tara McPherson as well as younger more independent artists that offer some amazing work!

Here are some visual inspirations for picture placement:

Love the idea of combining different frame styles and art pieces together! Very eclectic cool.

  Display art in an alternative way and have framed pieces rest on the floor 

Multiple artwork that is the same size can make for a great alternative to a headboard

Don't forget that art can also go in the kitchen!

I think that this print would be funny/cute in the kitchen


If you love the city, this print is quite pretty

LCD Soundsystem Live at Yves Saint Laurent

LCD Soundsystem is always at the top when it comes to favorite bands so I was excited that YSL commissioned LCD to play a new and delightfully unique tune while the models cruised the runway. This was broadcast live from the YSL site and unfortunately I missed it live, but thankfully the internet has saved the day! Here's for all you LCD lovers out there!

Oh, and I have been loving Karl Lagerfeld's guide to Life. It's absolutely brilliant!
