More On Lights

The weekend was spent painting.  It seems that's all we do lately.  My daughter's bathroom is painted, the porch  ceiling and most of the porch is painted, and I finished my stencil.  I'll talk about the stencil in another post when I've gotten over what a complete and utter time suck that was.  I haven't taken pictures because my battery is dead and I keep forgetting to charge it,  but I will.

In the meantime I've been thinking about hallway lights.  There is a door that separates the kid's rooms from the master so I wanted to do something a little more fun in their area, specifically star lanterns.  I got the idea from Gwyneth Paltrow.  I never thought I'd say that before.  Normally I think she's a pretentious cow, BUT, I read an interview where she listed things that she "couldn't live without".  Apparantly one of them was a high end (of course) star lantern by Charles Edwards.  She hung them going up the stairs so her family could pass them going up to bed at night.  I thought the idea was sweet.  So I was thinking of these since there are differing heights in the hallway.

I think the idea of having stars above seems so whimsical. I know I would have loved something like this as a little girl so I hope my girl(s) thinks the same.


  1. Such a fun light fixture! I love the light that it gives off on the ceiling.

  2. I've wanted one of these for our upstairs hallway for ages, but can't find one at a price I'm willing to pay.

    Uh-oh. I've got two stencils that I bought about 8 months ago. Haven't tried them yet so i'm interested to hear about your experience. Now i'm even more worried because i don't need another time sucker!

    The lights...love them! Either one. I've always wanted one. Thinking for our son's bathroom or the entryway. They're so pretty.
