Mounting the undercover lamp just like sheet rock, with only the electricity cords as the exeption.
After spackling and the firs coat of
basic white paint it looks good.
Up and down light in the same light makes for good atmosphere lighting.
Fringes did wonders and was the idea of Lighting Designer Svante Petterson whom I worked with to do the lighting for this TV project for Äntligen Hemma DIY show at channel 4 in Sweden.

Fringes make the light much softer. Here its also used as a decorative effect.
The right type of lighting at the right place.
What do you need ?
The lamp embedded in the wall and with the right wall color.
This friday I would love to get this handmade floor lamp made from recycled copper pipes.
Found it at Grandpa, but it has been made in 5 ex and they all sold out. I so understand though.
Skulle gärna gå och skaffa mig golvlampan på bilden på Grandpa på Södermannagatan på Södermalm i Stockholm som jag känner väl då min lägenhet jag flyttade från till huset här vid Uttran låg där.
Rather have a Giraffe than a Grasshopper :)
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend
The original I can not forget. Ella. For ever.
Dusty does for me today
What I also like with this interior solution is to hang a large ceiling lamp in the middle of the bed and use a large floor lamp as the bedside lamp. The collage was produced from left over pieces of wallpaper combined with lovely photos that were cut into squares.
The feel of the bedrom gets very warm and inviting even though we used blue tones which was the choice of the client.
Jag har lärt mig att oavsett vilken relation du har till dina föräldrar,
så kommer du att sakna dem när de inte finns där mer.
Jag har lärt mig att, skaffa sig pengar och saker,
är inte detsamma som att skapa sig ett liv.
Jag har lärt mig, att livet ibland ger dig en andra chans.
Jag har lärt mig att man inte kan gå igenom livet med en plockhandske på båda händerna.
Ibland måste man också kasta tillbaka bollen.
Jag har lärt mig, att när jag beslutar något direkt från hjärtat, så har jag också oftast tagit rätt beslut.
Jag har lärt mig, att även om jag har smärta, så behöver jag inte ge andra det.
Jag har lärt mig, att varje dag ska man sträcka ut handen till någon.
Alla behöver en varm tanke eller en vänlig klapp på axeln.
Jag har lärt mig, att jag fortfarande har mycket att lära.
Jag har lärt mig, att människor kommer att glömma bort vad du sagt och saker du gjort,
men de kommer aldrig att glömma hur du fick dem att känna sig.
This hallway is a very small part of the work I´ve done for Äntligen Hemma.
Äntligen Hemma is DIY on TV in Sweden.
We put up the wallpaper, took the planks from the fence and made a vintage wall with them.
Printed the picture on glass to put up a window with personality.
Built a shelf to store the dvd´s, put in the floor and made a bookshelf out of an old tree branch.
Transform a minus space into it´t fullest potential to become a +space.
That´s what a DIY show is.
This DIY is now vintage. Swedish classics.
Check out her designs on this link.
My creative mother Marianne went about making this lamp for her kitchen using suede on a metal frame. It fits her house perfectly and I think its a stunning looking lamp in a gorgeous house.
With this I bid you a wonderful weekend my friends.
Estrid Ericson founded Svenskt Tenn in 1924 and now its been upgraded 2011 in the best way possible. It´s a must see for design lovers.
The exhibition at the store is a must see, must feel, must have type of display.
Estrid Ericsons old workspace has been been kept prestinely. She saved all newspaper clips on a roomdivider.
Estrids drawers were filled of semiprecious stones and simple and valuble gems. All collected to create.
Estrid Ericson loved tea, so now Svenskt Tenn has a tasteful Tea Saloon.
Love the Per Öberg coffeytable.LOVE.
Estrid Ericson´s studio where she and Josef Frank created design history together for Svenskt Tenn.
Flower arrangements made by Designerflorist Peter Odegaard
Svensk Tenn shines a beautiful light on history and upgrades with style to the future.
Crayfish and crab is plenty in October. I love it. It´s my favorite food. My mom&dad lives on the westcoast of sweden and went to the the harbor in Varberg before they drove up 500 kilometers to me. Tonight is about us and this lovely food from the ocean. Thank you Mom&Dad!
Loving the patina of the scratched and beautiful surface of the old lockers in the otherwise very new hallway.
The Finkel bowl I so love found its place.
Must find out the name of my now favorite plant that just seem to so enjoy its new pot of this spring.
One of my black outdoor lamps came inside and found (at least for now) a new home in the small living room window overlooking the outdoor table on the veranda.
Lighting the scented candles can never be wrong.
Also note today that Sweden is on the top 10 list at Wallpaper magazine.
Congrats Dear Sweden. Luv ya :) We´re pretty cool after all ( just wait until it turns -30!!!)

Hanging lamp is Jimmy Schönning HEM Soomkai lamp.
Dont even know what these pipes serve as, but they look good with their painted numbers on them. Found them in the garage where I parked my car.
Found myself in a fog and thoroughly enjoyed it. All these shades of grey and misty pixly views really work for me. Think I will make pictures of these photos. Grey is still such a favorite color. Ella Fitzgerald comes to mind. Misty.
Time to listen.
Wikipedia says :
A sphere (from Greek σφαῖρα—sphaira, "globe, ball") is a perfectly round geometrical object in three-dimensional space, such as the shape of a round ball. Like a circle in two dimensions, a perfect sphere is completely symetrical around its center, with all points on the surface lying the same distance from the center point. This distance r is known as the radius of the sphere. The maximum straight distance through the sphere is known as the diameter of the sphere. It passes through the center and is thus twice the radius.
This is what I saw sitting in bed in the QX comment...hmmm... maybe there were some clothes on the stool at that point...
This is the outdoor lighting I found and love for the veranda and it also comes in a wall mounted version I have on the south side. They are designed by Maarten Demunster.
