This Cicero Bungalow light fixture was given to me by my Accountant, Joe Ender. He’s a lovely man that lives in a vintage Cicero bungalow outside of Chicago. Me being the Virgo I am, have emotion in everything and now am reworking my 1/2 bathroom to accomodate this cast iron fixture. Come along for the ride. I’m planning to update my blog with the fixture repair, medicine cabinet retro fit and wall finish selections.
Lesson learned: There’s always a leaping off point, just gotta find it! I found mine in this old fixture. Thanks Joe.

Ever wondered what’s in your designer’s tool kit? As designers we often forget our foundation skills as we wrangle with new technologies. A quick napkin sketch or color rendering can do wonders to clarify color, direction, space planning an scale.
Consider asking your designer to make a quick sketch… designers – be not afraid to take the extra time. More clarity makes for good design decisions.
