Rejuvenation just launched two new mid century inspired lights. I’m always a sucker for globe lights and the Sfera are nice and customizable (they even come in an 8″ and 16″ size). They are pricier than the Ikea version but way more refined. I hate that steel cable situation with the big Ikea 12″ globe light, that thing always looks like a bad 1990’s futuristic hot mess.

The Astron has totally peaked my interest. I think I need two in enameled black. Holler!

I have got to use that Rejuvenation gift certificate and these Astron numbers may be a winner. Maybe the master bedroom or guest bedroom, oh, or maybe in the living room in front of each window flanking the fireplace? Hmmmmmm….decisions, decisions.

It’s hard for me to choose what to buy when it comes to new stuff. There are just so many goddamn choices. With vintage or thrifting its pretty straightforward – you either find it or you don’t. If you find something you love and its the right price, you will make it work. Catalog stuff sometimes overwhelms me with all the options and I procrastinate. I make quick decisions and get more creative with boundaries and I think thrifting is like the most insane boundary and limitation. So, LONG story short – that is why I haven’t use my Rejuvenation gift certificate.

How do real designers do it? I always see that bird lady Candice Olson going through catalogs and picking shiz. But then those rooms always look so bland…like nice, but so so so boring.

Oh, and have you seen Design Star? What crap that show is and how awful has EVERY SINGLE THING been on that show? Oh god, this post has just turned into crazy rambling.

Brickhouse Bitches

Whomever keeps hitting up this bloggity for “brickhouse bitches” – this probably isn’t the site your googling for.

Keep doing it though. I love weirdo search hits.

Ahhhhh! Everything is on fire. Well, California is just constantly on fire.

I’m so glad I’m not working this week – I’d have to drive through that shit. Oops never mind, the roads are closed. My daily commute up the mountain is going to look pretty bleak and crappy after this blaze.

Everything smells like a campfire around the Brick House right now.
