Sunday Showcase: Julie Neill Designs

Posted by


Julie Neill Designs is a great place for unique lighting! All of Julie Neill’s creations are designed and handcrafted in New Orleans by a team of gifted artisans. The company is known for creating custom pieces therefore all of the lighting is made to order. Julie Neill Designs is one of my go-to places for lighting!

Here are some of my favorites from Julie Neill Designs! There are everything from chandeliers to lanterns and sconces. Enjoy!


This Cinderella Chandelier is so elegant and timeless! This would be a great addition in any room including the bedroom.

The Melanie chandelier, like the Cinderella, is  so sophisticated and would be a perfect addition to a dining room!


Julie also crafts a great collection of lanterns.  The Babs lantern is a great example. The lantern would add character to a kitchen or living room!

This Maryann Lantern has the “look” Julie Neill is known for in her chandeliers yet recreated in a lantern.   I love the details at the top and the square shape of the lantern.


This Gogo 1 Arm Sconce is just lovely! I love the detail on the base and simple shade.

This Chrissy 3 Light is another great sconce at Julie Neill Designs! This one is more ornate but just as elegant!

At Julie Neill Designs all of the pieces are made to order! Here are the assortment of finishes that can be used on any of the pieces.

Today, I’m taking you on another “The Look for Less” adventure.  Perhaps you’re trying to put together a room with great style but have a less than great budget.  Don’t fret!  Pictured above is the family room of my home recently featured in Traditional Home.  I’ve put together a few options that are far more affordable but yield a similar look.  Here’s what I found:

1. ART.COM Chambered Nautilus Print by Jane Burton  2.  HOME DECORATORS COLLECTION Montmartre Dresser  3. ROBERT ABBEY Orange Genie Lamp  4. PINDLER & PINDLER Crestwood in Lime  5.  DURALEE Large Tangerine  6. TCHOTCHKE CHIC Hand-Painted Lime Garden Stool  7.  DURALEE Damask Black Tie by Duralee

Sunday Showcase: The Urban Electric Co.

Posted by

The Urban Electric Co. is one of my favorite sources for great lighting fixtures! They’re located in Charleston, South Carolina, and offer high quality American-made goods.  Each one of their pieces is unique in their own way. I can always rely on an Urban Electric fixture to add extra character to one of my projects! In today’s Sunday Showcase, I thought I would highlight just a few of their wonderful pieces.


The Belmont Lantern designed by Mark Maresca is perfect for any indoor or outdoor space. The fixture can be painted or powder coated to add extra color to any room!


The Baxter wall sconce designed by Richard Mishaan is a more modern approach to lighting. The clean lines of this fixture are defnitely in line with my aesthetic.  The white finish with a hint blue trim is perfect!


This Anson Ribbon Chandelier designed by Michael Amato is the perfect piece to transform any indoor or outdoor space. The fixture comes in almost any color imaginable and is so fun!


The Hibiscus Table Lamp in antique brass is slender and perfect when you need a narrow fixture.  A pair would be great for a small console table.


I think the Lafayette Double wall sconce would look great in a library.  It’s smart looking!


Urban Electric Co. has an extensive range of finishes.  They even offer custom painted and powder coated finishes. 

I hope you have grown to love The Urban Electric Co. as much as I do!  Be sure to visit their website and see all of their offerings.  Happy Sunday!
