The Statement Piece

When blogger-stylist Erin Hiemstra of Apartment 34 [7] decorated a den/office for this Sunset Magazine house tour [8], she stole the spotlight with a California state marquee light [9] that she found at a local flea market. Made of reclaimed old-growth redwood and automobile-grade aluminum, the marquee features 13 lightbulbs representing the state's major cities.

Above the Sofa

Instead of hanging art or a mirror above your sofa, hang an arrow marquee light instead. We found a smaller version of the one pictured in Sophia Bush's home [15] at PB Teen [16]!
