Perfect Lighting + Happy Friday!

Hallelujah! There's finally a breeze in Chicago and I can stop melting away. Friday just got a whole lot sweeter!
I leave you this weekend with a few of my favorite images of late. Have you ever seen a more perfect light fixture than this? As beautiful as the rest of the room is, saarinen table and all, the fixture indisputably steals the show!

A room filled with white, gray, and rustic elements is a no brainer for me - it practically has my name written on it. But the intricate inlay on the pretty lamp shade is what has be perked up with new found interest.


And finally, a lantern light that's just as stylish inside a home as it is outside on the porch or backyard deck. I'll never tire of its classic form...

Have a wonderful weekend! I have some girlfriends from college in town and we are ready to paint the city red! Also, a huge congratulations to Rue Magazines very own Anne Sage, for being listed as having one of the top style blogs in the world by Cote Maison. Congrats Ms. Anne!

So glad there's a breeze in Chicago -- that's where I'm headed for the weekend! Maybe we'll bump into each other out on the town. Have a good one!!

Ooooh. Second row on the left. The room with the slate gray floors. I want to live there!

I really like that lantern light. And that slim wooden rack too.

Yay Anne! These rooms are gorgeous, Crystal. It's cooler here to which I'm happy about. We have a wedding on Saturday and I wasn't really interested in melting during.

Have a great weekend!

I'm in LOVE with the light above the dining table in the last photo. Could I have it for my dining room? :)

Have a wonderful weekend! xo

That beautiful light-fitting looks like an industrial ballerina, if one can imagine such a thing. And look, you've reached 1000 followers! Bravo!

Beautiful, Crystal! I'm really drawn to their slip covered sofas -- they're so comfortable and look chic at the same time... great post!

Wishing you a weekend of fun... and perhaps a little innocent trouble? :)

xoxo,
Sarah

Just adore the contrast between that really linear chandelier and the eliptical table. Stunning!

Hope you have a lovely (cooler) weekend!

I think I know the company that manufactures this lighting fixture (I featured them in a post of mine not long ago). Lindsey Adelman is the designer (I think...or at least it looks like it). You can visit the feature here: http://hilaryinspired.wordpress.com/2010/06/17/bringing-barnacles-to-light/

As always, thanks for a lovely post, Crystal!
