Office Light

Thursday, August 5th, 2010

The office part of the den is my constant nemesis. It used to look like THIS, no wait, lets look at THIS really old version.

I hate the built in desk – which we can’t rip out, or else I seriously would. I hate the stupid half wall of wainscoting that is actually inset in the plaster and therefore makes up half the wall (structurally). I hate the stupid oddly placed hardwired light thing. HATE. I hate the stupid high electrical sockets. I hate that there is nowhere to hide cords since the desk is built into the wall.

Not going to change it though. Costs too much and its not worth it in the long run.

Anyhow, I wanted to try out a simple lighting solution with a basic lamp holder and half chrome bulb. This is sort of a test run for an idea I have for the bathroom.

Hey. It works.

I can’t decide if I want to paint it white or black, I’m feeling very blah and uninspired right now about everything and kind of need a break deciding about things. I’m not totally Debbie Downer though, I do like the light it gives off at night. Also, since it’s a half chrome bulb it doesn’t blind you – which is always a plus with a wall mounted light.

Ugh. I hate you desk.

Yellow Lamp

I cleaned up and rewired the big yellow lamp to swag in the living room over the coffee table.

Shazzzam! Hit of color in an oh so neutral space.



Loving it.

Minimal Lights

I’m loving minimal industrial looking lights. I love the big wall mounted pendant over that lllooonnnngggg table and the plain-jane socket lights in the bathroom.

The Ace Hotel had similar pared down lights all over. I guess I am now officially obsessed with the Ace – oh and by default Commune Design.

Seriously, who do I have to blow to get a job at Commune?
