morning inspiration: bottles + lights

by Grace Bonney

there are few things more effortlessly beautiful than green glass bottles. sitting in a windowsill, filled with flowers, or displayed on a mantle, they really take the cake for me. i collect vintage green bottles whenever i see an affordable one at a junk shop or a fleamarket, but this morning i’m drooling over the collection of vintage bottles trina at bottle green homes has collected. in addition to vintage milk bottles, she’s got a gorgeous collection of green and clear bottles that would be perfect for displaying around the house. click here to check out her full offerings online.

also, after yesterday’s pendant lamp roundup i’ve got lighting on the brain. and this cool minimalist LED lamp called “001” by israeli designer naama hofman is beautiful. each light is made from a bent metal rod and LED light. the construction is so simple, but elegant, and can be placed on a table, hung, or leaned against a wall. the shape is so pretty and simple, i can’t get enough. click here for more information on the 001 light and to contact naama about her work or purchasing. thanks, naama!
