Pin…Pin…Pinterest – The best in Lighting!

Happy Friday to all of my fabulous friends.  I hope your week has been great!  Mine’s been good!  I am thrilled its the weekend, it’s suppose to rain tomorrow here in LA, which I hate, but other than that – no complaints.

My all time favorites would be faux bamboo furniture, campaign furniture, anything gold – and amazing lighting! So, what better time than to show case my faves in lighting from my Pinterest page.  Please leave a comment below if you need a pinterest invite, and also – if there is an image below that you want more detailed information on, please leave a comment and I can hook you up!

Have an amazing weekend!

xoxo, Hal

From the personal file AND on my radar – Insect Needlepoint Pillows.

Oh my goodness…. Jonathan Adler has done it again.
How bananas are these!?!?

Here’s my living room – (excuse the pic) to refresh your memory.
I see my next splurge on the horizon – and its looking like it may be these!
These are my colors and I think would jive perfectly with my Trina Turk/F. Schumacher pillows.
What do you think?

Want a little Adler?

Jonathan Adler makes me happy.  I was recently in his Chicago store with my boyfriend and we had so much fun just looking at EVERYTHING!  I wanted to buy myself a little present, but got so overwhelmed, I left empty handed. :(
BUT – this gorgeous lamp is now on sale at HSN – and it’s fantastic!  Please do get it! 
And then tell me how much you love it!

3 gorgeous dining rooms have something in common:

And what do they have in common?
Gorgeous chairs and fantastic lighting. 
So here’s a budget tip: If you need to cut corners, don’t focus on the table, get something clean and modern (Ikea would be a good source) and then splurge on your chairs.  
Love the open space and clean lines all softened with that wide plank white hardwood floors and that glammed out chandelier.  Image via Decor Pad

Meeting Jonathan Adler

Have I ever mentioned that whenever I am in a grumpy mood, I read the Jonathan Adler “My Prescription for Anti-Depressive Living” and immediately I feel great again? (and then notice myself re-arranging my home…) but that’s besides the point!
Last night was pretty unreal.
I got to meet one of my absolute favorite designers. Ever.
Jonathan Adler!!
There was a book signing/Q&A at the Barnes and Nobles in Santa Monica and of course, I was front in center with best friend, Christine in tow. We had an absolute ball. It exceeded my expectations and it is something I will never forget.
It’s people like Jonathan Adler who have so much grace, poise, interest, and care that make the design world amazing. He is creative, has such a keen eye, and really is appreciate of where his career has taken him. Not only that though – he wanted to give out his secrets: how to do this… and how to do that… He genuinely is on a mission to make everything esthetically “happy chic!”and he will help all of us get there!!
OH – and when I introduced myself – he mentioned he totally reads The Glam Lamb “Oh! I know you!” Yes. Thats what he said, my heart started racing, and it made my night!!
I also have added some new lingo to my vocab… “Obs” (obviously) “Tots” (totally) and when in doubt — refer to everything as “Bananas!”

Yes – I had him sign it all. My best friend has his large boob vase… I wish I grabbed it from her to have him sign it!!
