Okay, so a light bulb in my world went off the other day, literally- one burnt out at home. I have to say looking at the fixture all dark and sad got me thinking… Why not try a different bulb, something unexpected in the lamp.  I have a filament bulb in a lovely Niche Modern fixture already at home (love this industrial vibe) but this burnt out guy in my front hall got me thinking. I replaced the bulb with a big round frosted guy (my mother used to call these bulbs ” Fat Albert’s”) and West Elm sells them right now, so they are easy to order if you can’t find one at your local hardware shop.

Have to say… Totally love it, kinda funks up the traddy fixture.

Digging around a bit I’ve noticed other lamps that people have taken creative license with bulb choice. Have a look below….  this is such an easy DIY to add personality to room, and don’t forget to check out the shop, where we have Found some stylin vintage bulbs that make great objets on their own.



Here’s my hall fixture (which I swapped for a necklace I bought at a antique fair, the necklace was $5.00- turns out it was gold, a good day.)

And here it is from below.

This fixture within a Jonathan Adler designed interior is the perfect example, the small white golf ball shaped bulbs really spice up this light.

A Steven Gambrel design, the reflector bulb with dipped silver end is a beautifully chosen detail to help complete this bath décor.
