We Make Stuff-1-Design Crush


In the blogging world few things make me smile ear to ear like a “coworker” taking their love of making to a new level. We Make Stuff is the new venture of Funkytime founder Sibylle and her equally creative brother. The Berlin-based business creates high-quality handcrafted one of a kind pieces for urban interiors with wood, concrete, steel, and textiles as their signature trademark. Can’t wait to see what’s in store from this awesome new line!

Plumen 002

Plumen 002-1-Design Crush


Plumen recently launched a Kickstarter campaign for its second designer low-energy lightbulb, and holy crap the campaign is already fully funded! It’s really easy to see why, just look at Plumen 002. Art and ambience all in a lightbulb of all things. They’ll be available for purchase come September 1st and LED products are coming down the pipeline.

Starry Light

Starry Light-1-Design Crush


I’m digging not only the Starry Light, but also its clever tongue-in-cheek name! The constellations of the Northern Hemisphere are projected onto your walls and ceiling when lit. Starry Light all began as a piece of art and after a year in development went into product mode, it’s now available in several colors and manufactured by hand.

The Guest Room // The Lighting

When it comes to creating the feel of a room the lighting is definitely a big part of the equation. Too soft and you might as well be feeling your way around in the dark, too harsh and you feel like you’re in a department store. A fine line for sure. I already mentioned that the small bedside lamp was repurposed from another room, but when it came to the ceiling fixture I wanted a bit of a statement piece. Nothing too over the top, but not your average run of the mill flush mount either.

The fixture I went with is the Possini Euro Honeycomb Chrome with Blown Glass Ceiling Light from Euro Style Lighting. I love the mouth-blown glass balls, they look like they have tiny filaments throughout and give off a gorgeous glow when lit. It’s the perfect look for this modern-meets-traditional room!
