Inspiration – Exposed Bulbs

I dream about designing my own home, one day— Even as a child, I was quite frankly, obsessed with floor plans. I used to scavenge for those real estate flyers around the house and pour over the itsy bitsy floor plans, imagining what it would be like if I lived there. I would daydream and sketch out my own version where I re-arranged all the plan-view furniture to suit my tastes.

I probably have some of those drawings stuck in a drawer somewhere.

Amazing how eventually, after all those years, I managed to land a job that had me designing those real estate flyers for a time! But now, instead of just imagining what my furniture could be like, I could actually go out there and get them if I want to! One of those pieces will definitely be a handful of exposed bulbs.

Aren’t they absolutely gorgeous? There’s something about exposed bulbs that gives it a sense of charm with a dash of nostalgia. And these little darlings are as versatile as they can be! Paint the caps a bright and bold color (think turquoise or salmon) and the instantly give you a pop of modern.
