Really Love This...




I'm dying to use this chandelier made out of capiz shells somewhere- be it my house or a client's!!   (I'm running out of light fixtures to replace in my own--eek! ;)  It reminds me a bit of a vintage sputnik chandelier:



It's the Pearl Lotus Flower Chandelier from VivaTerra and depending upon the size is either $329 or $649. 



On another note, I'm so behind on my emails & my blog reading and am really sorry if you've emailed me & I haven't gotten back to you.  (Just trying to stay afloat over here with the new little guy.)  Please feel free to email me again if you had a question I didn't answer. 
xoxo,
lauren

Lauren! I picked this out for my client's dining room! We got the small size, but it's still as beautiful as the large. I can't wait for you to see pics :)

As you probably know, you're one of the first blogs I go to everyday, & am always so happy to see a new one!!!

BUUUT, um, welllll, I would T*H*I*N*K that everyone knows you're JUST a BIT busier right now than Santa is on Christmas Eve!!!!~~~ So, please don't worry about "keeping up", so to speak... babies are only BABIES once, & for suuuuuch a short, oh-so-precious period of valuable time!!!

Hugs to the wee one, & keep some for yourself & the rest of the family!

Oh, this is so awesome. So, so awesome. It makes me want to find dollars I don't have to hire you as my designer simply so we can find SOMEWHERE in my home for this. L.O.V.E.

nestegg said...

Lauren, I was recently introduced to your blog and I'm hooked! You have such a good eye. I love this fixture as well... I just saw a smaller version of this at market in 4 different bright colors! Would be a fun option for kids rooms. I think they were from Worlds Away. xoRH

take as much time as you need with your new little guy. we totally understand! i was out of commission for weeks and weeks when i had my little one, just cherishing every second.

and as for that light...FABULOUS!

Maria Killam said...

I love everything you love it seems :)

Holly said...

LOVE this fixture! I wonder if there is a way to hardwire it? I think the exposed cord running down the wall would really bug me. But I think it would look great as an alternative to a table lamp next to the chair in my living room!!! I am off to investigate...

Anna said...

Lauren...I love these light fixtures...and I think YOU should treat yourself to one :) x

Tina said...

Hi Lauren- I love the Capiz shell chandelier and definitely agree with Anna! I think one would look fabulous in your home! PLEASE don't apologise for not getting to emails and comments, you sweet lady! You just enjoy being a mama to your beautiful little men! Wishing you a happy day - Tina x

pretty light deserves a blow-out party!

i have a cheap version of this chandelier i got at target ($75?) a few years ago! we hardwired it & it hangs above my kitchen table. although the details aren't as pretty as those posted, i love it! i will try to figure out a way to post the pic. Love your blog!

My Notting Hill said...

Great light fixtures. I'm sure no one will mind if you can't get to your email - you just had a baby! When my kids were born I could barely find clean clothes to put on.

Leah said...

Here's the pic. Looks blurry but if you view the full size image, you can see it.

Beautiful shade of pink...and I'm not a pink person. :-) My heavens, don't even be concerned about emails, etc. Your little ones are so precious and time is short with them. We'll still be here!
