10 Brilliantly Beautiful Lighting Options

Light is something most people take for granted, but with any of these ten great lights in your home, your guests won't be able to stop thinking about it.

Cloud

Ever feel a dark cloud is hanging over your head? Why not make it literal so at least you can get a little humor out of the feeling. Besides, these beautiful lights by Richard Clarkson will actually help you light up your life, which is something everyone can enjoy.

Sklenik

Don't have space for an herb garden? Don't be so sure. The Sklenik is specifically designed for urban dwellers who want a little more fresh flavors in their kitchen. The light operates as a green house, so all you have to do is add water and pick your homegrown herbs.

Octopus

If you love the magnificent grace octopi, then you'll want to get your tentacles on this gorgeous stained glass lamp by Mason's Creations in the shape of everyone's favorite cephalopod.

Fan

If thinking cool thoughts can help you chill out on a hot day, then these cool industrial-style fan lamps will help remind you to think about relaxing breezes. We've previously featured some of the steampunk designs available from Machine Age Lamps, but these fan lights really blow us away.

ColorUp

There are tons of cool colored lights available these days, but for those who just can't settle on one hue, the ColorUp by Pega is a great way to enjoy your lighting in any shade. Just touch the base to the color of your choice, squeeze the bulb and you'll have perfect lighting for your mood.

Torn Lights

Bill Loft's Torn Lights are some of the most creative lighting ideas we've seen in ages. That's because they give the illusion that your wall has been peeling back, revealing a brilliant light inside. The power cord is as invisible as the rest of the light, ensuring the illusion will keep impressing your guests every time they view these clever lamps.

Flip Flap 10

This fun light by Buero Fuer Form appears to be floating in midair. That's because an invisible reinforced cable rises up to support the lamp. The shade is clamped to the light and can be angled for better lighting or for a more shocking appearance.

Reading

Anyone who reads before bed knows the importance of a good reading lamp, but this design by Bureau Debank not only lights up your reading space, but also provides you with a stylish and convenient place to hold your books when you're not reading.

Lumio

Of course, if you ever wished the pages of your book actually were a light, then you'll want to get your hands on a Lumio, which mimics the look of a traditional book only without words.

From the Sky

Pieke Bergmans' From the Sky designs might not be practical in a typical home, but the cool, dripping light bulbs are certain to make a statement wherever they are installed.

The 7 Strangest Hotel Rooms On Earth

We've covered a few wild hotel rooms and even a few hotels that are totally unique, but there are a surprisingly high number of strange places to sleep on vacation. Here are a few of the oddest and coolest hotel rooms you could ever hope to book.

The Batcave

At some point or another, practically everyone has wished they could be Batman or at least like they could live like Bruce Wayne. Now, thanks to the Eden Motel, you can take your fantasy one step closer to reality by renting out the Batman room. The hotel is what's known as a love hotel, so expect to pay by the hour if you decide to indulge in your Bat fantasies.

The Glass-Bottom Hotel Room

Bali is filled with beautiful scenery and the hotels in the area take full advantage of this fact. Even so, only the Udang House offers a tempered glass floor built above a pond, offering amazing views of the crystal blue water and the beautiful fish that call the pond home. If that wasn't enough to make you feel at one with nature, the bathroom features a glass roof that lets in natural light and lets guests enjoy an indoor space under the stars.

The 727 Suite

Costa Verde, located in the west of Costa Rica, features some pretty notable rooms, but it's hard to top the Boeing 727 that has been converted into a two-bedroom, two-bathroom hotel suite. Perched on a 50 foot pedestal to give the extra illusion of flying, guests are also treated to incredible 360 views of the surrounding scenery.

The Train Suite

Wish you were around to see the luxury of the golden days of rail but get motion sickness on moving trains? Then head to New Zealand where Woodly Park offers a Train Motel. With one master bedroom and three singles in the main car section. While you might not be able to check out the passing cities and towns, the car is planted right in the middle of a farm, so you'll still have plenty of natural beauty and livestock to enjoy.

The Caveman Room

The Madonna Inn of San Luis Obispo is well known for their fun theme rooms, but the most talked about, and oddest, room is the Caveman Room, which features rock walls and animal-patterned furniture. The bathroom shower drips from the rocks on the ceiling. It's the most luxurious way you could hope to get back to your primal nature.

The Cave Room

This one-room hotel was carved from the cliffs of a New Mexican mountain and sits 70 feet below surface level. To enter the underground hotel, you must first sign a liability waiver because entrance requires you to climb down a cliff and a ladder to enter. Of course, even above the mountain top, you're still quite a way above ground -300 feet to be exact, which means you'll have some pretty incredible views of the local scenery.

The Private Island

You might not be able to afford your own private island, but you can rent a miniature manmade one if you'd like. At Sweden's Utter Inn, you can rent an underwater hotel room that looks like nothing more than a floating red outhouse from outside. After you're dropped off at the space by your guide, you're left completely isolated until check out time -unless your order the deluxe package, which includes a dinner delivery to your small island paradise.

Still don't see any hotel rooms you're dying to stay in? Well, keep following the site since we'll be sure to add more hotel posts in the future.

12 Wonderfully Geeky Doormats

A doormat is more than just a place to wipe your feet before you come in the house, it's also one of the first places for you to welcome your guests and show a little bit of your personality. That's why a good doormat doesn't just clean dirty feet, but also lets visitors know a little bit about the people that live inside. Here are a few of the best geeky doormats money can buy.

D20

D&D players will love the opportunity to score a critical hit with this great doormat. Your guests will know you're a high roller before they even ring the bell.

Bigger On The Inside

You home may not look like much on the outside, but with this cool TARDIS doormat, guests will know that you have the interior design skills of a Time Lord, guaranteeing that your space is a lot more vast than it appears to be.

There's No Place Like 127.0.0.1

For most people, home is where the heart is, but for geeks, home is also where your wifi connects automatically. This clever doormat turns the classic expression around to make a delightfully nerdy ISP joke.

Enter

Telling people to they are "welcome" is so twentieth century. Instead, get with the new millennium and tell your guests to "enter" with this keyboard-inspired doormat.

Keyboard

Of course, if you do prefer the classic "welcome" mat, you can still give it a bit of a modern twist by spelling it out on a keyboard. This cute doormat is sure to tell geeks that their kind is more than welcome at your home.

Custom

Designer Jeni Rodger created this unique doormat to let people become a little more creative with their messages. The mat comes with a number of interchangeable letters and spaces so you can personalize your message based on your expected arrivals or your mood.

One Small Step

You might not ever get to actually step foot on the moon, but this nerdy doormat will at least let you follow in Buzz Aldrin's famous footsteps whenever you step inside your house.

Like Us

A real friendship can't be bought at any price, but offering potential friends free booze sure isn't going to hurt the situation. This doormat tells guests not only what you want them to do, but also why they should do it, which can hopefully make your dinner parties and big blowout bashes all that much more successful.

Video Game Controller

If you grew up mashing the SNES controller buttons until you could no longer press B or Y, then this doormat is just right for your home. Warn friends and enemies alike that they'd better be able to stand a round of Karting if they want to hang around your pad.

Pacman

If your gaming tastes are even more retro, then be sure to get your hands on this Pac-Man doormat that celebrates one of the earliest arcade classics. You can get yours for 35 Euros from Ooo My Design.

Darth Vader

Do you ever invite friends to join the Dark Side with the promise that it will include cookies? If so, you'll want to add this lovely reminder of your alligiance to the Empire to your entryway.

Speak Friend and Enter

Only those who speak of friendship are invited to enter the Dwarven city of Moria and now you too can add a friendly restriction to your home with this fun "Speak Friend and Enter" doormat. On the other hand, if you're feeling less than friendly, you might want to put out the "You Shall Not Pass" mat instead.

Found a perfect geeky doormat but still need a few other nerdy touches to make your home complete? Don't miss these great geeky bed coverings, these amazing gaming tables or these home organization tips specifically created with geek gals in mind.

Nothing says "New Year's" quite like an abundance of balloons, but if you can't find any specific balloons for this occasion, you can always make your own with a few plain-colored Mylar balloons, some number stickers and solid-colored sticker sheets. Balloon Time can show you how it's done.

Tinsel Numbers

Nothing like adding a little tinsel to you New Year's Eve party and with 2015 sparkling brightly on your wall, your guests will certainly look forward to the promise of a shiny new year. Learn how to make your own brilliantly cheerful tinsel numbers courtesy of Ruffled Blog.

11 Last Minute DIY Christmas Decorations That Are Easy & Cheap

Holidays have a way of sneaking up on us and whether you need to spruce up the house before guests arrive, want to add a dash more cheer to an already Christmas-y space or just want to feel a little more festive before the big day, these cute and quick last minute Christmas decorations will get your home ready for the holidays in no time.

Ornament Dishes

Dinner plates, crystal bowls, cupcake stands, candy trays, cake stands, vases and more can all be used to hold classic Christmas ball ornaments for an easy touch of holiday cheer. Fox Hollow Cottage shows that a little fake snow can go a long way in adding a touch of wintery charm. Remember to get bulbs in all shapes and colors to really enhance the display. You can also use this technique to make decorations out of all those burned out old Christmas lights you have lying around.

Branch Tree

Don't have the space for a massive fir, but still want to hang a few ornaments with cheer? Then grab a few branches, paint them white and stuff them in a large vase -voila, you now have a perfect place to hang your favorite Christmas ornaments. Fox Hollow Cottage shows how simple and classy a makeshift tree can be.

Ladder Tree

It's awfully late to get a Christmas tree, but you don't have to skip the traditional lights and ornament display. Eclectically Vintage shows that a ladder can serve as a funky and fun stand in for a traditional tree.

Sheet Music Ornaments

If you don't have any ornaments ready to hang, you can always grab a book of sheet music (or a few pages from an old paperback book) and turn them into a beautiful star ornament. Crafty Nest can show you how to make these in no time.

Christmas Pillows

How do you make an ordinary decorative pillow into a Christmas pillow? With a little gift ribbon. If you really want to spruce it up, add on a plastic ornament like Jennifer Rizzo did here.

Holiday Mittens

Have a few old mittens you don't plan on using again? Fill them with some greenery and you have a perfect holiday wall or door decoration thanks to this inspiration from Betty Sneeringer.

Christmas Card Holder

If you have a corkboard, some spare fabric and a little green ribbon, you can easily make a beautiful Christmas card display like this one. Centsational Girl has a full tutorial so you can copy idea in your home.

Doorknob Hangers

Are you door knobs feeling less than festive? Well just tie a little ribbon and some greenery on them and you'll change that in no time. Home Depot's Apron Blog has more details if you need them.

Cinnamon Candles

A sweet and simple centerpiece, these cinnamon candles look great, smell great and are easy to make. Treasures and Travels can show you how to create these beauties at home.

Bow Napkin Rings

A quick look at this picture will probably give you all the information you need to copy the basics of this idea for yourself, but let's give proper thanks to Minted Strawberry for coming up with such a cute and quick idea to improve your holiday tablescape.

Snowman Fridge

Here's one the kids will love to help with. Just cut out eyes, buttons and a nose with craft foam or construction paper, tape them to the fridge with double-sided tape or glue on a small magnet and then add a charming wrapping paper scarf. You can also use this idea to spruce up your front door.

9 Cool Examples of Repurposed and Upcycled furniture

As time progresses, we all end up with furniture and home accessories that we just don't need. But rather than tossing them in the landfill, why not put them to good use by upcycling them into something wonderful? Here are a few examples to get you in the repurposing spirit.

Crib-Turned-Desk

There comes a time in every baby's life that a crib just isn't necessary anymore. But that doesn't mean you need to get rid of it. Instead, why not turn it into a chalkboard desk that your babe will be happy to use all the way through his toddler through elementary school years? A Little Learning for Two's example is a great place to get started.

Table-Turned-Bench

A beat up coffee table or end table can make a surprisingly beautiful tufted bench if you have the handyman skills of Crafty Sisters NC. You'll need to remove the top, cut it, apply foam and upholster the cushion, but if you have the ability, the result is well worth the effort.

Coffee Table 2.0

Of course, you don't need to entirely change a piece of furniture to make it better. This Instructable shows that a mediocre coffee table can be turned into something truly spectacular with a little hard work.

Washing Machine Drum Coffee Table

You don't need to be a furniture restoration expert to make a great piece from some old junk though. An old washing machine drum, a piece of glass, a cheap lighting kit and a few nuts and bolts can combine to make a delightfully unique coffee table that is sure to get your guests talking. While this Instructable might not feature a tutorial, the images pretty much speak for themselves.

Garage Door Dining Table

A solid garage door seems like a terrible thing to waste, even if you don't need it on the front of your garage any more. This handy Instructable shows how you can easily repurpose an old garage door into a beautiful dining room table.

Armoire-Turned-Aviary

Old armoires can have great style, but they aren't always practical and they do sometimes suffer from old age. You can take advantage of that wonderful old styling in any repurposing project, but this aviary design featured on Empress of Creativity is a particularly beautiful example.

Headboard-Turned-Chalkboard

Chalkboards are highly useful around the house, but if you want to give yours a little extra style, a headboard can make an elegant frame as Beyond the Picket Fence demonstrates.

Bed Frame Bench

A headboard can also make a beautiful backrest on a bench, which is particularly convenient, given that the bed frame can be used to make the bench. Mak and Jill show the basic process, which looks surprisingly simple.

Drawer-Turned-Ottoman

When you're repurposing other pieces of furniture, it's easy to end up with a few leftover drawers, fortunately, they too can be reused for clever furniture creations. This cool ottoman by Beyond the Picket Fence even takes advantage of the drawer's storage capabilities to make an even more functional ottoman.

13 Cool Wreaths You Can Make Yourself

As the old song says, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas and if you're looking for a fun, festive decoration for your door this year, consider going the DIY route. While buying a wire wreath form and attaching pine garlands with floral wire is a classic way to create a simple, traditional wreath, here are a few other options for those who want to get a little more crafty this season.

Snowman

Want to ramp up your traditional green wreath this year? Then try making three of different sizes and then attach them to make a snowman wreath. Add a scarf, a hat and some stick arms and you're ready to go. Sew Many Ways can show you how to make one for yourself.

Yarn

Yarn wreaths are incredibly easy to make as they essentially just require wrapping colored yarn around a Styrofoam or hay wreath form. My So Called Crafty Life has all the details you need to make your own, and a link to make cute felt flowers like the ones featured on this wreath.

Paper Flowers

Alternatively, if you'd like to make some cute paper flower decorations to accessorize your wreath, don't miss this tutorial on Fiskars. Though you'll probably want to stick with more festive Christmas colors if you're making a seasonal wreath.

You can even make your whole wreath from paper flowers and Suaviloqy can teach you how (including how to make her own style of flowers).

Book Pages

The pages from an old book can even be used to create a literary-themed paper flower wreath, like this one featured on By Stephanie Lynn.

Paper Stars

Patterned Christmas paper can also be used for fun, festive decorations. To learn how to make a cool star wreath like this one, visit Little Birdie Secrets.

Felt Ruffle

All you need to make this great looking wreath is a lot of felt, some straight pins and a Styrofoam wreath form. Wine and Glue can show you how to put it all together and then you can accessorize it to your heart's content.

Mesh

To make a fast and fabulous wreath from mesh ribbon, you don't even need a wreath form, just some rounded wire. Chica and Jo show just how easy it is to make one of these beautiful wreaths for yourself.

Bows

We previously featured this cool wreath by Land of Nod on our list of great Christmas decorations you can make with your kids, but it's also a perfect holiday wreath to make yourself.

Presents

Of course, bows are mostly fun because they remind us of the childhood joy of opening presents, so if you want to increase that subtle feeling of excitement, then consider using mini Christmas presents instead. Crafts Unleashed can show you how to make a whole wreath from tiny gifts.

Scarf

Here's a fun way to give someone a present and decoration in one. Just wrap a scarf around a wreath form and pin. A Cultivated Nest has the full details.

Jingle Bells

Bells will be ringing whenever you open or close your door if you decide to follow this tutorial from Before Meets After to make your own delightful Christmas bell wreath.

Ornaments

After years of collecting ornaments, it's easy to end up with way too many for your tree. So rather than leave them sitting unused in a box, this year, try making a wreath out of them. Live Love DIY can show you how.

Gumdrops

Your guests will be happy to exclaim "goodie goodie gumdrops" when they see this sweet treat hanging from your door. For a perfect party display, use toothpicks to hold the candy on, but for a more long-term decoration, be sure to use glue and some sealer to keep the candy looking its best. Dream A Little Bigger can show you a more detailed explanation of the process.

Happy holidays to all you DIYers out there!

6 Geek Girl Organization Tips

There are certain things everyone has to organize, certain things geeks need to organize more than the average person and certain things girls need to organize. While there are plenty of storage and organization tips for all of these needs seperately, there are few tips out there specifically for geek gals. While some of these may be helpful for people of both genders and a few will be handy for all females, these tips are particularly oriented to help all those nerdy femme fatales out there who need a little hand storing both their hair accessories and their comic book collections.

Use Badges to Organize Your Hair Accessories

Have a lot of convention badges, other lanyards or award ribbons lying around? Put them on display and organize your hair clips, bows, headbands, hair ties and more at the same time. Just hand up the badges and clip your accessories or combs to them. Then use the loops at the bottom for your headbands. Finally, attach a carribeaner to the mix and hold your hair ties on it.

Use Magnets to Store Your Makeup

We already featured this tip on our closet organization tips article, but if you're looking for a visually impressive way to store your cosmetics, try adding magnets to them and putting them on display with a framed magnet board.

Hide Your Jewelry With A Painting

There are two benefits to using a framed picture to hide your jewelry. First, it makes it less obvious to theives if your house ever gets broken into. Secondly, it's a lot nicer to look at a pretty picture than a pile of disorganized necklaces, bracelets and earrings. This Design Sponge article can show you how to do it, but it's up to you to find the perfect poster, painting or fanart to fill the frame on the front.

Control Your  Cords

With all the random computer accesspories out there, it's easy to get surrounded in a cable nightmare. Our article on hiding the eyesores in your home covers a few solutions, but altrnatively, this cool Lifehacker tip can help you store and organize your unused computer cords until you need them. For a cuter solution, you can also enlist your LEGO Minifigs (supported with a little glue) to hold the cords for you.

To make sure you never unplug the wrong cable, try labeling your cords on  each end with bread clips. You can even make your own bread tags if you don't happen to have any on hand. Alternatively, a little nail polish applied to each end of a cord can help you identify which cable goes where.

Securely Store Unused Cords

For cords you don't need out, putting them away in a box together is a surefire way to end up with a neverending knot. Instead, put each cord in its own empty toilet paper roll (or a cut up old wraping paper roll) and fill a shoe box with the rolls of cables. You can even make the rolls look pretty by covering them in wrapping paper.

Clean Up Your Gaming Space

Whether your prefer board games, card games, video games, miniature games, role playing games or any combination of gaming, you know the hobby can take up a lot of space and create a lot of clutter. While the Geek Chic tables we previously covered can help clear up some of the mess, this handy article from Father Geek can show you how to use fishing tackle boxes and other solutions to tackle your game room organization project. For those who prefer digital to analog, a storage ottoman specially designed for video games is a great way to hide all of your titles and peripherals away. There's even one built to hold all of your Rock Band accessories.

There you have it you geeky gals and nerdy divas -finally a home organization article dedicated solely to you and your specific needs.

Katio Makes Pet Ownership A Lot Simpler

Cats are great pets. They're playful, cuddly and just plain cute, but owning a cat usually also means owning a litter box, which is about as far from cute and cuddly as you can get. While your cat is always going to need a place to go potty, the Katio at least makes the kitty bathroom a little easier to deal with.

The clever cat box is designed to fit into a window just like those box air conditioning units. With door flaps, a clear windo and ventilation, the Katio gives your kitten a nice place to sit while he does his business and gives you a less stinky alternative location for your litter box. Additionally, the design makes it easier to clean the litter box since you no longer have to bend over to reach the box. 

For dog owners who are physically unable to take their dog outside every time it needs to releive itself, the company is also releasing a Dogio, which is essentially the same thing only with a ramp or steps to the restroom area. And don't worry about your pooch breaking through the box, the device is weight tested to hold over 300 pounds.

The Katio is raising funds for production through Kickstarter, where you can pre-order your own Katio or Dogio for $250 and $300, respectively. Once the item is in production, you'll be able to order it exclusively through Amazon.
