New Pendants with Vintage Light Bulbs - Middle Redefined

New Life for Pendant Lights

When we moved into our current house, unlike most traditional newer suburban homes, we inherited really modern light fixtures on our main floor. Nothing wrong with these modern blue pendant fixtures if it fits within your style aesthetic.

DIY Goodness: Make Your Own Roman Shades

I can honestly say I’m never really “done” decorating any of the rooms in my house. Every once in a while, I won’t even notice that I’m lost in thought staring at a room, or a wall, or a shelf, and my husband will say, “What are you thinking about changing now?” And obviously since we […]

Bar Cart - Society Social

Bar Carts Revived

I love bar carts. They make me feel very Mad Men-ish. When bar carts were first born, they were created for people who wanted to have “bars” at their house or office that were easily moveable or stored away when they didn’t need them.
