Year of Change: June's Project in our Guest Bedroom

 Hello all!  Happy Friday!  Thank you for the love on yesterday's Palm Beach Picnic--you're the best.  

Today is the reveal for June's "Year of Change".  
This is a monthly series that wonderful ladies I met at Alt Summit put together, and for
 the month of June I am their guest!   

Every month my friends partner with a company and the challenge is how each of them incorporate a piece into their home.  I had the privilege of taking part in the month of June while the worked with Lamp's Plus.  They allowed each of us to select shades and what's called a "swag kit".  It's a pretty interesting invention that allows you to transform any shade into a pendant light!

I selected two of these gray and white patterned shades for our guest room.  The nightstands aren't very large and I wanted to free up the surface space.

I wish the photos were better, but the lighting is this room is the trickiest in the whole house.
 I love that now there is a place for our guests to have a glass of water and fresh flowers.

What do you think of the pendants?  I like the soft light they give and their modern feel against my grandmother's antique headboard.

I can't wait to see what all the other ladies selected!  I can guarantee you will love their work.  Thanks to Lamp's Plus for the lighting and to my gal's from the Year of Change for including me this month! 

Whether you're near or far, I would love to work with you to create a home you love.  Email me at abbyminteriors@gmail.com for more information on my local & e-design services.


  1. These look fabulous! I have not done pendants in a bedroom- I'm dying to do it! LOVE the pillows!

  2. Hi Abby, You know I'm a pattern girl & I love the pattern on the shades. So much more interesting than plain white. Which would have been the safe choice.
    The picture you showed of the swag kit indicates it can be plugged in. But I'm not seeing a cord running down the wall. Trick photography?
    Hope you enjoying Chicago. You should visit Urban Salvage on Grand Avenue. I love that place!

  3. These look great Abby...and love those pillows on the bed:)

  4. Love these Abby! This is the perfect place to hang them - love that you freed up table space for your guests. Thanks again for joining us this month!

  5. I love that turquoise tray from Target. I bought one for a client, and wish I'd grabbed another for myself! I see it popping up in a number of your styling images. Beautiful guest room as well!

  6. Abby looks great! Love the lights and those pillows are so perfect!
    Mary - the swag kit can either be used plugged into the wall or you can wire them into a box in the ceiling.
