Great lighting can be hard to find, especially at a price point most people can afford. Here’s an idea for some truly original lighting you can bet you won’t spy at your neighbour’s pad:
Why not pick up one of West Elm’s Medina Glass Jars (below) (or any large vintage-looking jar will do) and turn it into a lamp brimming with island style? Their green organic loveliness has me dreaming of an effortlessly glamorous Bahamian getaway just like Tom Scheerer's (above).
You can create a lamp using a kit from any Home Depot or hardware store, or visit www.woodparts.ca to find one online. Don’t worry about the cord showing — that’s part of the look! Think India Hicks, bleached drift wood, and a beachy laid-back vibe. The perfect time of year to escape!
