One of our favorite (and inexpensive) ways to decorate our pad is with lighting. Four to five accent lights instead of harsh overhead lighting is how we like to keep rooms lit. But if we do go for the overhead lighting, it's has to be on a dimmer or an idea like this DIY parasol light, pictured above.
Ask Dzign takes her grandmother's antique Japanese parasol and simply attaches it to an old light fixture with two plastic cable ties that she had lying around the house. She explains that because of the height of the ceilings, you can't see how it's done when you're passing through.
The vintage parasol adds charm and a little bit of unexpectedness to the everyday hallway. And we love how it deflects harsh overhead lighting--great DIY!
