these lights

Uber excitement. That's what I'm feeling. 

So, there are these lights from Schoolhouse Electric + Supply Co. that I have been dying to use in a project, whether it be my home or a client's, AND I finally purchased them! 

I am currently working on a children's room for a boy and a girl. These lights are going to be perfect for their bedside reading.

nailed it!

I'm super excited about this gem of a product I recently found and wanted to share.

I have a client that wants to hang his keys. Currently they are hanging with the smallest picture frame nail.  While this is functional, I wanted to boost the style level. After some hunting I came across these oversized iron nails that are fun, industrial and durable. You can purchase four for just $12 at Brook Farm General Store.

hometown joy

As I was reading this evening, I came across this amazing furniture design company that just so happens to be in my hometown, Milwaukee, WI. I don't even know these two talented individuals and I felt a sense of pride. 

The brothers, Vincent and Paul Georgeson, launched Misewell (midwest slang for "might-as-well") in 2008. Their design is sustainable, clean, industrial and classic. Below are my top three favorite designs, although I have to admit, I am a fan of every piece they have created!
