I have to admit, I feel like it’s taking forever to get into our “new” 1922 house, but the reality is, our move in date is getting closer. After months of waiting, our lease-back contract with the previous owner is almost up, which means our renovations are about to begin. Bring on the stress. Bring on the fun!
I can’t even express how excited I am to move in once we’re done with the reno, and even more so, I cannot wait to start adding some of the finishing touches. Lighting is one of the main things I’m most giddy about. For some reason, lighting always feels like jewelry to me. It’s the finishing touch to the “outfit” of each room.
This particular home is dripping with character, which allows me to go a little crazy with the lighting. I’m going in a completely different design direction than I ever have before (think modern meets industrial), and I’m loving it so far.
In my lighting search over the last few weeks, I started to find a number of Etsy shops that I just couldn’t help but share. With so many shops and listings, Etsy can be overwhelming for sure. It’s taken me weeks to find these shops, and to be honest, if I don’t share them with you guys, I feel like I’m hiding something. And well, that would just be rude, right?
I literally want to buy so many different lights from these shops, it’s been very difficult to narrow down my favorites. From bathroom vanity lights, to complete statement pieces, these shops have it all, and I’m obsessed. I still haven’t purchased any for my home yet, but don’t you worry, it’s coming!
Ok, let’s get started.
So what do you think? Are you as hooked as I am?
Interested in my plans for the new house? I recently posted about my nursery design here and my exterior makeover plans here.
