"I have continuously handcrafted luminaries which playfully mix experimental forms and materials such as concrete and gold, resulting in a stunning aesthetic contrast." --Stefan Gant, GANTlights.

Born in Bavaria, Stefan Gant created GANTlights in 2012 after completing his Masters in Architecture in Munich after which he completed his Masters in Architecture in Berlin. Gant combines raw concrete with hits of metallics to create elegant lights for the home or studio.

I was immediately drawn to these pieces for their simplicity and beauty. I'm always amazed how designers can create gorgeous works of art with simple media like concrete.

I know I write about Etsy a lot... well when I'm on here. But they've truly got me every time I go to the site. There's a section called Our picks for you that I love. It's like a bunch of little surprise gifts that are waiting just for me! How do they know me so well? And then I remember that the Internet has a weird and creepy algorithm following my every move.

Whatever, I'll take it!

Ok so here is what was waiting for me in my Our Picks for You list today so you can get to know me a bit better like the Internet does...

Fun outdoor pillows

Friday, April 29, 2016

It's that time again... the time to be thinking of the outdoors. As I mentioned in my last post, I'm going to finally make a cushion for the couch on my porch and began my search for pillows to go with it. I found some pretty ones on Etsy of course. Outdoor fabric has come a long way and now you can find all sorts of fabric designs for outdoor cushions and pillows. Oh now what to choose? Secretly my favourite are the Tropical outdoor pillows from Anita's Casa.  I love that pink cording! I'm eyeing the Tonga Weave in Grass or the Eaton, Deep Charcoal from Tonic Living for the main cushion. I'll have to see what works.
