Channeling Diana Vreeland

Why don’t you replace all your flame tipped light bulbs in your chandalier
with round vanity light bulbs?

So I did!

I hope she speaks to me again…soon!

She makes the smallest detail important.

  12. I have a chandelier in my studio that came with that style of bulb. It is so simple and easy and yet I never thought to do it! Ever since I bought that chandelier two years ago I have been putting them in all my fixtures. Great post!

  16. Great chandelier! I wonder what kind of bulbs we will be using in the near future for all our chandeliers, I just cannot bear the ghostly glow of the LED bulbs…
