It’s time for a little Pin Crush. Today’s pins are all about natural light and daring windows. As the final bits of snow melt away, and the sun is shining bright, all I can think about is flooding my home with natural light.
Last night, I laid in bed (for more hours than I’d like to admit) dreaming about all the ways I could tear down an exterior wall of my home and replace with floor to ceiling windows. Some of my favorite design styles are from Australia and Sweden, where natural light is the essence of home design. They call it daylight-designs or daylighting. It is a design practice of illuminating the home with natural light by implementing abundant windows, skylights, high ceilings and reflective surfaces. It’s more than a window view, it’s an experience one feels throughout the home. No matter where you are, you are apart of the light coming in. Doesn’t that sound lovely?
Today’s collection can be found in the Abode, Black & White, White on White, Dine with Me and In the Kitchen Pinterest boards. Enjoy and be inspired! XO
Who doesn’t need these candles in their life?! I mean, really…THEY ARE BADASS!
“At Damselfly, it’s not all about rainbows and butterflies… We want to hit you in the face, right in the nose, with our triple-scented aromas and then in the eyes, with a killer quote.”

I could tell you a lot of cool things about Christianna Heideman and Damselfly, the creators of this cheeky candle line. But their ABOUT page is so damn perfect, I will not begin to compete. Read below and then try to tell me you don’t want to be Christianna when you grow up. Or at the very least, work at this company (possibly, for free).
Damselfly – About
“THE ONLY PEOPLE FOR ME ARE THE MAD ONES, THE ONES WHO ARE MAD TO LIVE, MAD TO TALK, MAD TO BE SAVED, DESIROUS OF EVERYTHING AT THE SAME TIME, THE ONES WHO NEVER YAWN OR SAY A COMMONPLACE THING, BUT BURN, BURN, BURN LIKE FABULOUS YELLOW ROMAN CANDLES EXPLODING LIKE SPIDERS ACROSS THE STARS.” -JACK KEROUAC
Over the past 13 years, Damselfly has been acclaimed and respected by Australia’s leading fashion houses for it’s intuitive vision, innovate designs and trend changing creations in jewellery and accessories.
Christianna Heideman’s love for the aesthetically rich and otherwordly began at 19 with the creation of Damselfly. After a brief sabitcal breaking in wild unicorns, travelling to the moon and gathering stars, Damselfly has been reinvented. Taking inspiration from the beauty of everyday, Christianna’s design now leads us into the treasures of home wares and beyond. The beautifully mad ones, the creative chaotic ones, all those burdened with the visions of perfection, is where the passion for Damselfly lives.
Welcome to this crazy little world..
