I love Ellen DeGeneres’s new lighting collection. Crafted by Generation Lighting and influenced by some of Ellen’s favorite artists, the collection is inspired by her own treasured pieces throughout her homes. I love the relaxed style of the collection which works beautifully with many different styles —  from rustic to mid-century.

One of my favorites — Augie Table Lamp

Anhdao Table Lamp

Indo Table Lamp, Indo Wall Sconce & Georgia Wall Sconce

Francis Floor Lamp

Another of my favorites — Redmond Table Lamp.

To view Ellen’s entire collection go to Clarkson Lighting.


Have a great weekend!

Love the work of interior designer, Monique Gibson, and one of my favorite Gibson projects is John Mellencamp’s home in South Carolina (see below).

Gibson’s talent to make large spaces feel warm and inviting, yet stylishly interesting, is stunning.

Happy Friday!

Perched on a hilltop overlooking the Pacific Ocean this beautiful villa was built in the 30’s by Wallace Frost after spending a decade in Italy. Owned by Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, I absolutely love the way they decorated this gorgeous villa. I’ll be honest, I’m a little obsessed with this home.

I love this porch, and the staghorn fern on the wall is incredible!

When Ellen talks about why she loves this home in her book, Ellen DeGeneres Home, she says, “… I think it’s because the house is always surprising. It reveals itself to you in new ways every day. And it’s really how I want to live. It’s not overly manicured or tidy. It’s not overly precious or perfect. And it’s a home that manages to be both spacious and cozy at once.” — I love that!

Happy Friday!

I first heard about Patrick Dougherty in 2009 when Southern Accents did a story on him, and I couldn’t believe what he could create out of twigs! These incredible works of art seem to compliment each setting in which they are constructed. In nature, they look as though they’ve existed there forever. When placed against buildings or in galleries, the contrast between the natural and the manmade — is gorgeous! I do want one of my own.
