Exposed bulbs

A few years back, I came across the silver tip light bulb.  It was the first time that I thought about a light bulb on it's own being pretty.

Since then, I've come to appreciate the beauty of the bulb a little more and have been favoring lights and chandeliers recently with exposed bulbs.

The Halo Chandelier is an absolute stunner.  I have this in my bedroom hanging over the bed.  When turned on it emits such a pretty glow.

This one is beautiful in a cluster...

...and simply awesome with a colorful socket

These wire pendants are getting pretty popular (Anthropologie has some similar models).

Over a bed or a dining room table, this lamp would be equally stunning.

Aren't these fun?


  1. Who knew you could love a light bulb! Love, Love the exposed bulbs too - they do look fantastic in all of your choices!

  2. Just found this blog via twitter! This is my first decorating blog that I'm following...I'm excited because I definitely need ideas to make my tiny Paris apartment look a little more 'designed' and less 'I don't know, this stuff just sort of came with the apartment...'

    Looking forward to digging through posts!
