OUR EMPTY CONDO TOUR! ♥ VLOG

This is a video I'd been dying to film! Jake and I moved in together (for the first time!) over the weekend. We are so lucky to have found this beautiful space in Scottsdale to call our new home together. I have been itching to get my hands dirty with more home decor too, and it is super exciting to work with this blank canvas.

Bedroom Tour + Giveaway!

Hi loves! Today I have an exciting post to share with you! I recently shared my California room tour with you, and today, I have my room at home (in Arizona) to give you a peek of. This room may be a little off according to my current tastes because of the very pink walls, but I have redecorated and rearranged it this summer to become a space that I enjoy being in. I hope that you get some decor ideas from this post, and stay tuned until the end because I am hosting a super fun giveaway for you to win! IMG_6205

I love this useful Urban Outfitters Modern Wall Shelf which holds part of my vintage camera collection and personal paintings including 90's Pop Art Canvas. I also placed it to frame out the mirror below.

This vintage-inpsired phone is my room is definitely the biggest conversation piece. It actually accepts money, and works!

I DIY'ed this mirror in high school with just some paint and a decorative stencil. It has always been a favorite piece in my room, that I still love!

ARCHITECTURE_Lasercut Chandelier

DSC_0751 I've been dying to share about this project ever since I finished it in the fall, but had to wait until I hung it up and it could be properly displayed. I made this chandelier last quarter for an annual furniture competition at my school that is held for architecture students. I created the fixture out of plumbing pipe, and then laser cut the "crystals" out of plexiglass. I chose to keep these materials in their raw form because I wanted to create something beautiful that had an honest materiality and was made out of unexpected items. The choice to make my own crystals was also due to the fact that chandelier crystals are very expensive, and I wanted to create a dialogue about digital fabrication.

By the way, these crystals may be familiar if you've seen this necklace I made and wore in this outfit post.

Below I've included the poster that was displayed next to my piece at the show, and talks a little more about the concept of the project!

Next I've included some process photos. I cut and assembled the pipe frame in my school's wood shop, and spent two days in my studio using jewelry jump rings to hook all of the pieces together--there were over 1,000 individual crystals!

And finally, here are the photos of the finished product hanging up in my home! I'm so excited to have it displayed and want to create a little seating area underneath it.

Thanks so much for reading! I will be posting another lighting fixture project made out of plumbing pipe that is a little simpler if you want to make one yourself, so stay tuned for that. Until then, keep up with all my projects on Instagram @punkrockparti.
