Lighting: What Else Can We Wire Up?

Lighting: What Else Can We Wire Up?

Taryn's shows us how some creative lighting can definitely bring out the ordinary objects into a whole different world.

Just in case you've ran out of inanimate, otherwise un-electrical home décor standards to tech-ify, Lite Brite and Light'n Up Neon have some really bright ideas for you…

Light'n Up Neon has some options for those of us who have houses that our friends can never find. Their neon house numbers don't come cheap at around $600, but it might be a small price to be able to light up your stoop like a hip bar for parties.

They (and a few other companies, do an online search for "neon house numbers") offer a range of colors, sizes, and fonts.

Also from Light'n Up Neon are these neon flames and flowers they call Neonies® and Argonias® (Made with Neon or Argon gas).

Lite Brite, a Brooklyn-based company that does work for clients like Bergdorf's and Stella McCartney, offers these neon versions of home lighting basics. Clockwise from top left: Wall Sconce, Table Lamp, Floor Lamp and Chandelier.

They might be too bright, and definitely too pricey, but we kind of like it.
