plenty of light {bulbs}...



Lately, i've been seeing single light bulbs all over the place! I first saw them at the new restaurant below me... where individual bulbs hang low enough that you can see their glowing, curled up filament. But grouped close together, they look so beautifully romantic... be it a small Parisian café or a cozy livingroom corner... what do you think? Do you like the look of an unadorned bulb?

I think it looks amazing. Not sure if it would work in my home though.

I love it - but more so when Edison bulbs are used - such a nicer effect!

I love the look! Really romantic & unexpected...amazing how some items are transformed when you group them en masse.

how beautiful! I love the first photo:) I think the bulbs stand out against the dark color of the walls very nicely

Love it, and it makes me want to do this in my basement bathroom, over the sink. Would that be crazy?

I like the look- very fun and different.

I've been seeing these as well everywhere. Even on the Haiti Telethon they had light bulbs hanging behind all the artist while they sung. I also saw a great par at Kuhl-Linscomb this weekend. Love the look!

So cute. I think that's why I like this chandelier from CB2 so much: http://www.cb2.com/family.aspx?c=120&f=5281

Ohhh... that CB2 fixture is beautiful....

Catching Up - That CB2 one would be perfect for a bathroom!

I love this look! I think the key is doing it in multiples for a grand effect. The second image is fantastic. I seriously heart anything orange and have a number of orange walls in my house. Now I just need to get me a polaroid camera and Voila(!), instant fabulous wall art!

Thanks, once again, for the shout-out! :0)

That first photo is great!!

FROM THE RIGHT BANK said...

OMG, I was JUST working on a post about this very topic! That first photo is what triggered it for me! There's just something so refreshing about this look. The more I shop for light fixtures, the more I'm drawn to the simplicity of this look. I may have to borrow the second photo for my post. ;)

pen.ny said...

OH yes, my favorite look indeed.

Daniella said...

Alek - It's totally a trend catching on! And no problem... borrow away!

the second picture is amazing love the idea

Sarah Klassen said...

Good morning, Daniella!

That first image is just killing me! I so adore the industrial look of these bulbs, especially against the deep, ornate backdrop of that blue wall. This is going in the inspiration file for certain!

Hope you're having a lovely day / xo

Design Darling said...

oooh i love these! gorgeous pictures you found :)

destined to design said...

love these shots - both so great! i've always loved the industrial feel that comes with hanging fixtures with exposed bulbs.

Colleen said...

I love these light bulb installations! I blogged about the polaroids in the bottom photo - so creative! xo

Love at first light, lol!! There's an artist on Etsy (http://www.etsy.com/shop/jeanpelle)that sells a cluster of light bulbs that I'm just dying to purchase as well. Lovely!
