Ships Ahoy!

by Shelly

I’ve always been a lover of all things nautical, so when deciding on lighting for our new place, I knew right away that I wanted the lights in our home to have a sea faring feel.  Here are some picks for your sea inspired home!

1.  Add a couple over an island or breakfast bar.

Hampton Bay Nautical Mini Pendant Light $19.99 on sale!

2.   So cute in a kids bath!

Nautical Outdoor Wall Light $89.00

3. Amazing price for such a designer look. Add woven seagrass shades to complete the look!

Coral Chandelier $299.00

4. Tucked next to a nail head leather chair, its the perfect compliment for a nod to nautical.

Floor Lamp in Antique Brass $103.50

5.  LOVE this in a bathroom, quirky in pairs on a dining room wall, beach cottage when done outside.

Warehouse Sconce $79.00

6.  So much more affordable than it’s designer counterparts!

Surveyor Lamp Base $39.99 Burlap shade is extra, found here.

7.  Just a wink of beach theme. Reminds me of seaglass found in the sand.

Eva Colored Glass Table Lamp $99.00

1. Oh my! I am in love! Actually not too bad if only buying one for a flush mount hall light or bathroom light. A few of these mounted on a kitchen ceiling would be SO cool though.

Heavy cast brass ceiling light $170.00

2.  Absolutely stunning in person! Feminine and beachy. Fab over a vintage style soaking tub or contrast it in a dining room with a super rustic table and wicker chairs.

Southampton Iron/Shell Chandelier $1966.00

3.  This beauty doubles as art in a living room!

Montauk Search Light Floorlamp $1974.00

4.  Just gorgeous in a powder room. Could also see them in a built in wet bar area with a hammered copper sink.

Vintage Brass Cage Nautical Wall Lights-pair $1694.00

5. Gorgeous ocean colored lamp with textured linen shade, would look so pretty next to the bed!

Seeded Recycled Glass Vessel Lamp $285.00

6.  Put a few over an island or use the larger version over a breakfast table.

Kendall Mini Pendant with round shade $299.00

Can’t wait to show you guys the two new nautical lighting fixtures we’ve added to our home! Stay tuned.

Powder Room Redo: Chapter 1

by Shelly

Our new wonderful home is a classic Williamsburg style home. I’m a true believer in decorating a home somewhat along the lines of what style home it is. For example, if you have a Hamptons beach cottage, I think its silly looking to decorate the interior in Hollywood Regency style. I don’t mind touches of a look you really like, but I do feel the homes’ insides should somewhat reflect the outside.

With that being said, our new home was an abomination when we moved in! The previous owners LOVED Tuscan style…and not good Tuscan style…gaudy, old lady, over done Tuscan. It was bad! We’ve painted and replaced lighting in many of the rooms, but since we’re not rolling over in cash…well its going to be an on going process for a while to come.

Our powder room is BEGGING us to help it. Here take a look…

The vanity area complete with a new vanity, lighting and oil rubbed bronze fixtures just not in the style I would go with. I would LOVE something like this…

Since the hubby will not allow me to rip the vanity out anytime soon, I’m thinking of possibly painting it white to match the kitchen that’s white in the room next door. But the dark looks nice with the travertine tiles. Ah decisions, decisions. 
Then did you see that wonderful lighting?!!! Yuck. Again, not umm my taste AT ALL! So that’s definitely going. But since this is going to be a mini redo I think the old lady wallpaper will come down first and a coat of BM Lenox Tan will go up in its place. I would love to have polished nickle hardware in here but since the oil rubbed fixtures are brand new..they’re going to stay. So here are some lighting choices I’m considering replacing the old ones with.
The Sutton sconce looks a lot like my inspiration picture. I like the touch of modern they would lend the room. Since the fixtures are so traditional, I think these would give a nice contrast.

Soho Sconce $189 @ Shades of

Cone Shade Wall Lamp-Double Joint in Bronze $272 @ Shades of Light
The last light is a bit different for a bath. I got the idea via Urban Grace blog a while back. She wrote about her love for designer Rita Konig’s bathroom she did for Domino Magazine. I like how unique it looks in a bathroom.

 So what do you think? Which lighting choice do you like best for the room? Oh and to help you gain a greater sense of what I’m working with, here are more pics of the rest of the room.
lovely shower umm drapery panel..don’t you think?

 Tumbled travertine tiles are pretty AND expensive I know, but I hate the diamond pattern they used. Oh and why oh why would you spend the money in bath and put in expensive tile work and leave the old too small bathtub? I’m perplexed. FYI the bath is VERY short and small. Since I regularly use this room to bath our little one…my back aches hunching over this thing.
To be continued…..
