While I’m talking a little about Berlin designers today, have you heard of Lilly Berlin, the lampshade queen? Oh she’s so great at selecting beautiful fabrics to cover her shades with for both table lamps and pendants. I like the patterns she finds, from nesting dolls to cute little scenes, animals, and lots of tiny prints and her shades come in made sizes and shapes. Here’s a view of some, see which ones you like…
Their are TONS more in her shop so give yourself a few minutes to browse here. Aren’t they the sweetest? Great for kids and big kids, like us!

Juliette from the Zuhause blog told me about a jam jar diy project that she posted on her site yesterday… Just an FYI in case you’ve been wanting to try this at home, Juliette can help you!
Note: as with any DIY project where you’re playing with electricity (he he) please be careful and exercise caution!!!
Wowie zowie! Talk about a statement maker… check out this recent submission that I received from Bock Lighting. This hot little number is soooo South Beach! The new Flamingo Chandelier from brand new lighting company Bock Lighting is quite amazing, I love how it looks in this clothing store don’t you?
I’m always on the look out for new, amazing lighting and am a big fan of bold pendants because they can really make a room so this thing excites me on all levels. And umm… it’s pink — how sweet it that!? The glass (hand blown in Poland) comes in several other colors — white, crystal, amber, brown, gray and blue.
Is this light your taste or not? Would you have one in your home? I think it would be gorgeous in the right space, a very contemporary minimalist home comes to mind. I imagine it in a foyer or dining area, but love the idea of it in a restaurant or as shown here, a retail space. It’s got wow factor, for sure.

I talked about Domestic Construction nearly a year ago here but upon spotting their recent photos of these ‘tea’ lights on the Inspiracion Pura blog yesterday I couldn’t resist from sharing again in case you missed them first time around…
I love these playful lights and imagine a cluster over a dining room table or a single light suspended over a desk in a work room. I’d love to walk into a bakery and find these as well, can you imagine a cupcake shop with these pendants over the display cases?

Oh lord. Too tempting. Do you dream of having a kitchen shelf showcasing an assortment of handmade ceramic dishes and bowls? My shelf back in my German kitchen has some lovely things (see below) but I think it could also use Pigeon Toe Ceramics based in Portland, Oregon.
In fact, I think every kitchen could use at least a few things from Pigeon Toe, don’t you? I love their dents and organic shapes and imagine serving dinner using some of their bowls or sipping my favorite tea from a dented mug. Although it’s hard right now to buy a lot of stuff (at least for me), I definitely try to put some money aside from time to time for special treats so Pigeon Toe is definitely going on my wish list for future purchases, especially their darling footed bowl!
