This post was created in partnership with GE Lighting. Photography is light - many of us have heard this phrase at some time mentioned while reading about picture taking on the web or if we've taken any photo classes. It's a familiar little motto that actually really proves itself out as we all try to take better pictures. Really, the lighting is easily as important as the staging, and in most cases can make or break a photo.
Every year around this time I start to crave more plants in my home, a natural progression I suppose as winter draws nearer. But this year it's not only about the upcoming holidays and the forcing of paperwhites, it's the presence of real houseplants, the tried and true. Here's a few I came across this week from the folks at Livet Hemma and IKEA. (Above and two below - ANDVANBAR). Let's take a look!
The cacti seems to be at it's peak this week as it seems the prickly pears and its' pokey cousins are showing up everywhere we turn. From mugs to colouring books, let's take a look!
1. Cactus Mugs
(Above) We love these ceramic black and white cactus mugs from Cocochispa.
Fun to see Janet Hill Studio now has pocket notebooks of her lovely art we wrote about earlier this year. Each one is staddle-stitched with 64 lined pages (4.5"x5.5") and is printed here in Canada. Sturdy cover with a matte polyester laminate finish that is non leaching and non toxic. The cover art are reproductions of her original artwork, with a choice of three different designs. Word to retailers, she is now taking wholesale orders too.
Check more out below.

Ikea stylists are some of the best out there. They always seem to have a knack for dreaming up great DIYs, so we hit up Livet Hemma (Ikea Sweden's blog) for some inspiration. Here's a few (new to us) IKEA DIYs we love!
1. Panel Headboard
This idea is pretty brilliant. Two BEKANT office panels are brought together to make a headboard. The curved shape creates a sense of privacy and the surface absorbs sound, providing a soft and quiet backdrop to a bed. Click here for more info.
Approximately fifteen miles from Joshua Tree National Park sits The Joshua Tree Casita , a bohemian-styled two bed, one bath mid-century airbnb home. Located near the west entrance of Joshua Tree National Park, the rental boasts complete silence, open desert views, desert wildlife, and a breathtaking starry sky (best seen from the hot tub!).
Owners Sara and Rich Combs have decorated the space in a relaxing neutral palette with a dash of southwest influence. Let's take a look!
