I have absolutely no time to read all my favorite blogs this week and construct a post with my favorite links, but I was excited to see the Meridian Pendant in mumm by Lights Up! receive some AT love the other day. I originally bought this lamp for my own home at DRTC here in Atlanta, and when Drew, a founder of Design Public came to visit, I showed it to him and told him we simply must find out the vendor and carry it at DP. That was years ago, and the graphic prints of the Lights Up! fixtures are still going strong.
In following the AT Before/After story of the Lights Up! owners Nick and Kate (photographed above), I followed the trail to another favorite blog, Door Sixteen. Apparently, Nick and Kate inquired about the pendant lamp they spied in Door Sixteen’s New Years Eve Party Post, which is this lovely piece from another favorite of mine, Mibo. The uber-renovators over at Door Sixteen led Nick and Kate over to Design Public, where they eventually picked out their mumm Meridian Pendant Lamp.
I’m starting to feel like Elaine on Seinfeld typing all of these exclamation points. When I actually take the time to edit my own posts (which is, ah, ahem, not that often, usually after I’ve posted and read it live and say “oh crud, this post is a disaster.”), I find myself cutting out exclamation point after exclamation point, so you are kind of killing me right now, Lights Up!(!!!)!

Door Sixteen photos swiped from Door Sixteen’s Apartment Therapy House Tour – you MUST check this out if you haven’t already! Door Sixteen hit my radar during The Homies blog contest; it’s an excellent renovation and design blog, and the photography rocks.

Whoa. Imagine going nearly two months living in a loft (aka a box) with only one floor lamp and some lighting from the kitchen. Let me tell ya, these were two months of very long and dark nights, especially now that the sun sets at 5pm. But as of this past weekend we have light! (excuse the mess)
We had to get our electrical setup figured out before we could install the Lights Up! Deco Deluxe Pendant Lamps over our “dining” and “living” spaces. We actually decided to use just the two big sections of the pendants…after playing with the various pieces to the lamp we liked the simplicity of the two pieces. What is great though is if we ever want to change it up we can add the rest of the shades to the pendant and we’ve got a new lamp!
While going through this lighting process/challenge I have learned a bit about what it takes to give a home the right lighting. I’ve collected all of my findings in our lighting guide, but if you see anything missing or have additional insight, please share!

Whoa, nelly! Boy do we have a treat in store today…Kelly Osborne (no, not Kelly Osbourne) from See Jane Work has kindly shared with us some incredible images of her home. Yes, you will feel like she ripped pages out of a magazine and sent us scanned copies. But, no! This is actually her home. I would like the bathtub and the twelve chickens and the entire kitchen and the living room and the dining room, might as well through in the kids while we’re at it!

What’s your favorite DP product and why? Definitely the Mod Mom Toy Box – it’s such a beautiful piece. I wish she would do larger pieces like buffets or coffee tables. It’s furniture that’s also art. My kids keep their Lego’s on one side and extra train tracks on the other.
