Style Notes :: The Sourcebook, September 2019


I have been collecting inspiration for some time now from 1st Dibs.  Are you familiar with the site?  It is the ultimate source for collector and vintage treasures; for those who want “first dibs” on luxury items ranging from fashion to art.  I can’t help myself.  Although I may not be able to afford most of these beauties, the inspiration is divine!

In this post, I curated some lighting inspiration.  Personally, I find most new light fixtures to be too trendy and so costly.  A few months ago, I sold a pendant for only a third of its original price, even though it was still available online — at a higher price. It took me too long to sell it off because it wasn’t any different from what was available everywhere else.  Since then I have been making do with a temporary very inexpensive pendant until I find the perfect replacement.  I know that my patience will eventually pay off.  Do you like any of the options above?  I would love to read your comments!
