Dining Room: Bring on the Light

Ok, so we do need a couple more things to round our the dining room. Artwork and a lighting fixture. I’m on the lookout for a great canvas of sorts or a giant photograph – but that will take some time. For now, let’s get some good lighting going.

I’ve already shared some of my favourite pendants for the kitchen. Some of those would work well in the dining room as well. But to keep things fresh, here are some new picks:

If my ceilings were limitless, so to speak, I’d snag a Serge Mouille piece or something by Brooklyn based, Lindsey Adelman. I’m in love with her glass blown fixtures. They’re available at Hollace Cluny and are oh so stunning.

Lots of good things are coming out of Brooklyn these days, and David Weeks Studio is no exception. He makes some amazing lighting fixtures, as seen below.

The London Townhouse of Christine D’Ornano was featured in Elle Decor a few months ago (and featured in a previous posting) The pendants seen below are vintage lamps from the Rover car factory. They remind me of the Caravaggio pendants I love so much. Top photo care of Elle Decor. Bottom photo by Lerkenfeldt Photography.

Lovely London Townhouse

If you haven’t had a chance to pick up a copy of Elle Decor’s April 2010 issue, here are some shots of Christine D’Ornano’s stunning London home.

This house is filled with character and fabulous lighting fixtures! I love the pink living room walls and of course, the Serge Mouille lighting. The floral wallpaper by Osborne & Little adds a whimsical touch to a home already filled with amazing details.
