For the kids’ sputnik ceiling light, we chose another fixture from Practical Props. It’s the Starlight Flush Mount in Satin Brass. They are pretty excited about it.

In love with the new ceiling light in our bedroom. I found it on Amazon, and it’s called Holtkoetter 5402 BB 13SW Halogen Ceiling Fixture, Medium, in Brushed Brass with Satin White Glass. Hello, beautiful orb.

We bought our dining room light fixture on Amazon. If you’re looking for it, it’s called the Sputnik Chandelier 6 Lights Vintage Pendant Chandelier in Brushed Brass from Housen Solutions. There are other configurations, but we’ll start with this and see how we like it.

I love the FLOS Smithfield Ceiling Light by Jasper Morrison but can’t afford the $1000 price tag. I found an under-$150 imitation on eBay and I love it. The proportions aren’t as elegant as the FLOS, but the overall effect is pretty close.

I love the 10-inch Globe Pendant in Satin Brass from Practical Props. I feel good about supporting them, too, since they’re a family-owned business and their fixtures are handmade in the USA.

Kitchen cabinet progress. They feel so good to open and close. I may do this all day.

Kitchen cabinets are happening.

The cherry cabinets were selected because they are close(ish) to the original cabinet color and also echo the brick walls nicely. Some have asked why we’re not doing a white kitchen, so that’s why.

Man, I miss Polyvore. Creating sets was fun, but it’s the loss of their product search-engine that devastates me. It was unmatched, and online shopping hasn’t been the same since.

This was the first set I ever created on Polyvore. I think it was supposed to be an outfit I’d wear to the movies. It was probably 2008.
