The Duct Dude (he really calls himself that) came over to get the ductwork done for our microwave/range hood. It was stressful watching him cut through the brand new ceiling! I almost told him to forget it and go home.

Knobs.

I chose a smallish knob for the cabinets, because I didn’t want to go overboard with sleek bar pulls, like you see on our appliances. These little cylinders are like jewels against the wood grain, and they take turns sparkling as the light outside changes.

They are the Moen Iso Cabinet Knobs (DN0705CH) in chrome. I bought them from Amazon.

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.
