Writing about style, design and all things that catch my eye!

Perfectly imperfect and casually luxe; these are a few of my favorite things.

Captivating Chandeliers

Lighting fixtures can set the tone for a space, especially if they are chandeliers. My eye is frequently drawn to very large statement pieces that there would be no room for in my own home; yet finding them for others is nearly as good of a feeling.  Here are some stunners that have left me besotted* this year. Explore modern pieces designed by Tord Boontje, to antique classics from Italy-- finally forging on to the  artistically wrought wonders by Carolina Fontoura Alzaga, this is your time to be blinded by the light.
