Sorry for the delay but better late than never. This weekend, I was over at our friend's new house. It was long and tiring journey for them to find their first home but it definitely seems like it was worth the wait. Among the many projects/design decisions we talked over was a solution for her dining room light. Currently the chandelier is rather blah and she is anxious to get rid of it. A lot of elements are up in the air so I suggested doing a basket light which looks great, is easy to install and can be very cost effective. Since we have moved into our rented house (three years ago...) I have been wanting to implement this high impact, low cost solution. And while I haven't gotten it together to get one for our dining room maybe this will help motivate me! Here are a few images I pulled together to show our friends what I had in mind.

Last week I posted about Jenn and Mike's living room plan which features two matching rattan chairs. The rattan will work well in their space because it will help keep the room feeling airy and add just a touch of bohemian flair. I wanted to do a follow up entry just about rattan because I am a big fan of it. Whether it be a chair, bed, table, mirror or light fixture the material works with almost any style and can often be very affordable (lots of craigslist and ebay listings). Other things that are great about it are that its durable and easy to care for, works with both warm and cool color palettes, can help tie together different wood finishes, introduces an interesting texture and is rather timeless. Below is a collection of images that feature rattan pieces. Enjoy!
