Thank You So Much!

By Kate Riley November 25, 2013

Friends, I found out that I won the 2013 Best DIY Blog in the Best Home Blog Awards hosted by Lamps Plus, how exciting! I have you to thank, those of you who voted, I’m surprised and so thrilled!


I wandered into my local Lamps Plus store a few years ago and I’ve been a fan of their products ever since. I used their drum chandelier and plug in pendant in my son’s room in 2011 and raspberry pink lamp in our guest room makeover this past summer.

Two of their mirrors have long been favorites of mine, the Casbah which hangs in my living room and the Hill & Dale which hangs in our hall bathroom (links below).  You can see both mirrors in this home tour I posted earlier this year, and I’ve also rounded up more of my current favorites.

lamps plus favorites

casbah mirror / possini planet chandelier / edison ceiling light / ovo table lamp (many colors) / embassy desk / retro clock / hill + dale mirror / fifth avenue pendant / black glaze lamp / maarid beaded chandelier

  1. Congrats on your very well deserved win!! You are too kind to share this with your readers!! I’ve been searching for a budget-friendly round mirror for my hallway to no avail. I really like the one you have posted (the Hill & Dale mirror) so I think it would be a tossup between that one and the Urban Elegance Antique Silver mirror, either would be the perfect addition to the hallway once it’s done being painted! Thanks and congrats again!!

  2. Congrats on the award!! Your blog is wonderful and always a DIY inspiration. Love everything at lamps plus. I didn’t know they carry more than lighting. Thanks

  3. Such a well-deserved honor Kate, for all that you share to us! Congratulations!!!!!

    I need new lighting for my breakfast area fast!

  4. Well Lamps Plus agrees with me, Centsational Girl is the best home blog! Congratulations Kate! I love the Chesapeake 20 inch wide forged bronze pendant. I could see this enhancing my entry.

  5. Congratulations! Very well deserved. I am loving the Hill & Dale mirror that you have in your bathroom. It’s beautiful! It also matches my accessories, and would provide a nice/much needed update to our bathroom.

  6. So happy to hear about your latest award! Love shopping at Lamps Plus and the Square Iron and Glass Newman Side Table is something I have had my eye on. It would look smashing almost anywhere, but I would like to see it in the sitting area of my master bedroom!

    And thanks for a new entry for my I Broke The Chandy board. Huz wants to see it in person (not an instant veto! Yay!)

I loved the metal retro clock you tagged, but also saw an owl lamp for one daughter, bird freya bottle sets in turquoise and brown another would love. The red poppy throw pillows were lovely too!

  59. I’ve been looking for something that’s simple and timeless, but still has a wow factor, I think the Minka Harvard Court Collection has that feel.

  60. Great assortment of pendants lights. I need to update my builder grade lighting and Lamps Plus has unique qnd interesting choices for every lighting project!

  61. Hi Kate! Congratulations! I love your blog and your writing style! I had no idea Lampsplus had so many other great items! I loved the “shop by trend” feature and within that loved the Baja Distressed console table!! I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday season!

  67. Congratulations on your award!! You are so very deserving. I get such joy reading your blog and am in awe of how you transform furniture; your step-by-step instructions are starting to make me feel as though I just might be able to tackle similar jobs here in my own home as well.

    This was my first time on Lamps Plus. So many wonderful things. But I love the Color+Plus collection. I loved how you can customize your own look with choice of base color, shade color and even base style. Such lamps would work in my son’s room and also in my den. In addition, I am a huge orange fan, so I got a real kick out of seeing your personal choice of lamp as well!

  73. Congratulations. Your winning this award was no surprise to me at all. I love your blog – so many ideas!

    I fell in love with this vanity: Elton Espresso White Marble 24″ Wide Floating Vanity Set.

We’ve been looking for a floating vanity that will suit our needs and style preference. This may be it!

  74. The wall sconces are dreamy! Though there are other dreamy things I would love for my basement reno.

  75. Congrats! I think my kitchen needs the Uttermost Alamo Burlap 3-Light Pendant Light

  85. Congratulations! I would love that Edison ceiling light in my foyer. I need all new lighting throughout my house, so this would be awesome!

  86. We are finally tackling our master suite!!!! And are searching for a great chandelier for the space! :)

  87. Congrats!! I know I’ve been following your blog for a little over a year now, and it’s still one of my favorites :) I LOVE Lamps Plus!

  97. Love lamps plus. Right now we could really use a pretty, clean and modern light fixture in our kitchen to replace the crazy-ugly mid-80’s glass thing we have. I’m thinking the double-shade brushed nickel pendant would be great!

  98. I could really use some new lamps for my living room. I’m having a hard time picking a favorite at Lamps Plus – they are all amazing.

  99. Thanks for the giveaway and I read your blog everyday. Your blog has inspired me to make my home more inviting. I’m in need of a new light fixture at the foot of my stairs. I recently updated my living room with a blue sofa, white tables, silver, purple and teal accessories. I still have this brass (ugh!) light fixture and I’m looking for something more modern. I love the Possini Euro Crystal Disc wide ceiling light fixture. I need a flush mount with a low profile and this is 4 1/4″. My coat closer door opens just below the fixture so a low profile is important.

  100. Congratulations ! Well deserved.
    I’d love to see the Possini Euro Celestia hanging from my bedroom ceiling.

  101. I just bought a 70s ranch that I will update, little by little. The long narrow bedroom hall is dark and needs brighter lights overhead. I need 3, though, so this gift card would be a blessing! I am loving the Independence Collection 16” Wide Satin Nickel Ceiling Light!

  106. I LOVE the Arteriors Zada Eight LIght 37″ Wide Glass Chandelier…let’s just ignore that price tag…:)

  107. I am redoing my craft room and need a new light. I like the Industrial Cage Ceiling Light with the Edison Bulbs and the Jonathon Alder Parker. Two very different looks. I really don’t know the style I want to go. I like to many looks.

  108. Congratulation Girl, you are Censational! I love and appreciate your post. I have a 1930 (913 s.f) beach bungalow nestled near the Cheaspeake bay that it am ever so slowly restoring. Lighting has been my challenge in the kitchen and hallway and I love the Industrial Cage Dark Rust 7 1/2″ High Ceiling Light Fixture Style # U8933 – MOST POPULAR! They would look perfect. Right now I have been starring at 2 exposed light bulbs for several years now and it sure would be sweet to swap them out for these.

    Keep up the Censational work, Girl!

  109. I am still in love with your retro clock from Lamps Plus and really want one to put in our new kitchen! We have a 1929 home and for the last 10 weeks we’ve been undergoing a major kitchen & powder room renovation. I’ve been blogging about it at

I would love wall sconces for either side of our bed. I would love to get rid of the boob lights in our laundry room and hallway. Little by little….

  111. I would probably spend it on a new mirror for my master bedroom! Congratulations on your win :)

  112. I love the Foxcroft Pewter 6-Light Chandelier. I am planning my dining room and it would be the perfect shiny counterpoint to a rustic dining table.

  113. We are starting a remodel of our master bathroom. After getting all of the old dated wallpaper down I am most excited about putting up a delicate sparkling chandelier over the soaking tub. I love the selection at the Lamps Plus website and really like the Belle of the Ball Crystal Mini Three Light Chandelier. Congratulations on your win and thanks for having this give away!

  114. Congratulations Kate! Well deserved!

    I would love to replace my builder grade bathroom light. So many wonderful bathroom lighting options! I would choose the Hinkley Lanza Bronze or the George Kovacs Rectangle light.

  178. Looking at entry way light fixtures. We bought our home in May while still living overseas. We finally made it into the house in September and are slowly making it our own – paint and fixtures are the easy fixes. Murray Feiss Lucia Collection 18 1/2″ Wide Pendant Light would be more to my taste. Our current entry way fixture is much more themed, like victorian…. in a colonial house. Not loving it. Hoping to replace that fixture soon.


  179. Congratulations! I LOVE your blog and you totally deserve the win!

    I had no idea lamps plus had so much cool stuff! There are hundreds of things on the site that I would love, but one of them is the Spadola Copper mirror.

  180. Such a hard decision, but I know I could choose on of the drum lights to replace the builder grade fixture in my hallway/coat closet area.

  181. Congrats Kate on your well deserved win!

    We’re in a slow process of furnishing our house. In what is called the ‘entry way’ (because we don’t really have one and have just stolen space from the living room to make a sort of entry way) a mirror would be really helpful to bounce the light around. Would love to have a Casbah mirror of our own as it would blend nicely with the other moulding in the room.

  182. Congratulations! You are the best. :)

    I love the simple design of the Kichler Cantilever Copper Bronze Finish Floor Lamp. Thanks for sharing your prize with a lucky winner!

  185. Congrats on your win, Kate!! You deserve it!!!

    I love the Regency Eagle mirror and the Easton Wood Distressed Mirror!

  186. Our bedroom would be so much more better if, the Possini Euro Aluno Plug-In Style Swing Arm Wall Light – Style # M9450 was living with us.

    And so much more easier to reach out and turn on instead of knocking the bedside lamp on the nightstand off when I turn on the light when the baby cries. ;)

  326. I love the Imperial 60″ Bath Vanity. This is top of my list for my bathroom makeover. I didn’t know that Lamps Plus carried vanities so I’m thrilled to find this resource! Thanks Kate.

  327. Definitely interested in finding brass swing arm wall lamps for the master bedroom, why are the beautiful ones so darn expensive!

  328. The Rita mirrored console to go by our bed! I have the link minimized on my phone so I can keep an eye on the price in case it goes on sale!

  329. I need a new light fixture for my dinning room and I have already been eyeing a few from this store. Picking just one is the hard part, because they have so many great ones.

  330. I’m looking for sconces for our 3rd bedroom and they have a very good selection, classic or modern. Tough choice.

  331. I’ve been coveting the Robert Abbey Delta Egg Blue Table Lamp for some time now. Beautiful! Congrats on your award and thanks for sharing! ;)

  332. I would absolutely be exstatic if I won this giveaway! I’m planning to finally finish my living room’s decor and need lamps and a mirror to do the job right. I found this lovely large wall mirror that I think would do just the trick. When trying to be mindful of my finances and being a procrastinator (my motto is, if you don’t love it, don’t buy it) I’ve had to out off this purchase for many years (my goodness, nearly 6 now!!!) and have finally decided that I must do this for me. It’s my right, as the homemaker and style maker of my home, to finish the job and do it right. Besides, shouldn’t a girl ‘own’ the home she lives in and love it when she walks in the door ;-). I think so.

  333. Oh my goodness, I completely forgot to put the name of the mirror I want from lamps Plus-silly me :-). Medrassa Tile Openwork 40″ High Rectangular Wall Mirror
    Style # X4542. There we go, that’s better. I sure hope I am selected for the giveaway!!!

  334. I’ve been looking at the koi apothecary table lamp for some time now. I’m leaning towards a coral color – 17-1452. Happy Thanksgiving!m

  335. I would have a wonderful time deciding but I do love the George Kovacs honey gold desk lamp.

    Congratulations on your blog award! So very wll deserved.

  336. Youve got me thinking about all my projects now. ;). I’d start with the Izela 40″ wall mirror for the guest bath.

  337. Congratulations, you are deserving of many a best diy blog award! I need some chandelier love in my life (home), big-time!

  338. Oh my gosh! There’s so much to love! We’re remodeling our lake house and the Set of 2 Metal Urn Bronze Table Lamps would be perfect and a steal for our master bedroom bedside lamps! What an awesome website with an incredible selection!!

  339. So happy to see that Lamps Plus brought back the Casbah mirror, Loved it from the day I saw it in your living room. YAY!! Thanks you

  340. Thanks for the awesome giveaway, and congrats! My favorite is the Bruno Collection Scissor Arm Pharmacy Plug-In Wall Light. Perfect for my new apartment. :-)

  341. Congratulations!

    We are putting ceiling lights in all over the house. I like the Justin 13″ wide bronze ceiling light for the study and Possini Euro Design lights for the bedrooms.

  342. Congrats, Kate! This always has been a very helpful site. I’ve been eyeing some plug-in swing lamps from Lamps Plus, actually, for our master bedroom. :) Can’t decide which one I like best though.

  343. Congratuations! I love thie Supieror Antique Brass Gallery Pharmacy Floor Lamp. I printed a copy of the lamp out a year ago for my office update file. Thanks for the opportunity!

  344. I’ve been cyber stalking the Crystorama Calypso Bronze 10″ Wide Crystal Ceiling Light. Two of them will look amazing in my front hallway!

  345. I need some new scones and love the one below – classic and affordable :)

    Robert Abbey Koleman Brass Plug-In Swing Arm Wall Lamp

  346. You know what’s awesome? Menlo Park 14″ High Old Silver Wall Sconce. I don’t have a place for it, and would use the winnings for something more needed (like bathroom or dining room lights) but oh man it’s SO COOL

  347. I’m in the process of stalking every globe pendant on the internet for my kids’ playroom…..It looks so cool – but also indestructible!

  348. I love the casbah mirror and have been eyeing it in your home forever. Would love to add it to my family room.

  349. I would get new lamp shades for my living room and possibly bedroom. They have some gorgeous shades.

  350. A couple of the White Ovo lamps. The two in my living room are from the 80’s….yikes! Many thanks for the chance to win!!!

  351. Congratulations!!! There are so many great things it’s really hard to choose. Maybe the casbah mirror???

  352. Congratulations! That is a much deserved award! Ok, so our house is in desperate need of some lamps. Mine are from my college/first house days (like 10 years ago). I really love the crystal stack table lamps (woud be fabulous in our living room or master) or a new chandelier over our dining room table. Ours is hideous.

  353. I like the Mirrored and Black Granite Bathroom Sink Vanity & it would go perfectly in the bathroom w are renovating. :)

  354. I’m in love with the Robert Abbey Dark Brass Adjustable Pharmacy Floor Lamp. So classic!

  355. I really like this one. It would look great in my entryway.

  356. I totally want that maarid beaded chandelier in white. It will look fabulous in my eat in kitchen

  357. I’d love the planet chandelier for our entranceway, which we are in the process of gutting down to the studs.

  358. I’m smitten with all the island lighting options they offer. I don’t love the ones I have right now and I think these would freshen up my kitchen.

  359. I love the many different Chandeliers, lots of food for thought for different rooms that could use freshening.

  360. Moving into a bigger apartment this weekend and so inspired by your blog (started following today)!

    I love your Casbah mirror and would love one of my own. Thanks for the inspiration :)

  361. I would love the 16″ wide white and chrome ceiling light for my son’s room makeover!

  362. I have mirrors on the brain, so I was drawn to the arched antiqued mirror (I think two would be great on either side of my bed), or there’s another mirror the Kichler tall bronze mirror.

  363. Thank YOU for the giveaway opportunity. Hands down, I would choose to put the gift toward the White Casbah Mirror to go above our master bedroom dresser. I have been holding out for the perfect mirror (that isn’t going to break the bank), so the poor bedroom has had a bare spot above it for quite some time. Both me and the bare wall will be filled with gratitude if we are chosen :)

  364. Hi and thanks for the chance! There are MANY things I would love on that site…. I know one thing I would want, the carriage bronze outdoor light. Of course a few new throw pillows for the couch would be nice too…maybe a new mirror for the dining room?

  365. I’m in live with the Safavieh Florida Shag area rug. Thank you for sharing your home and ideas with us. It’s truly an inspiration.

  366. We have recently remodeled our kitchen on a shoestring budget. She (aren’t all kitchens female?)needs 2 of the Kichler Lacey mini pendants over her bar, like a lady needs her earrings before she leaves the house for a party. Funny, can’t make the hubbie understand this….

  367. What a great give away! I am in the process of re-doing my dining room and on the hunt for a new light fixture. I am loving the metal lattice bronze penant!

  368. Congrats Kate on the award! I love your blog and sensability.

    Thanks for the opportunity for a great giveaway!

  369. I absolutely love the Rico Espinet 18-Light Candelabra Chandelier and the angelo:HOME Ennis Golden Yellow Groove Modern Sofa. Who knew Lamps Plus carried furniture???

  370. wow, lots of gorgeous stuff!
    The Ferros Collection, the Morris Satin Bronze Lighting Collection, and the Industrial Candelabra 6-Light 20″ Wide Cage Pendant Light are all fabulous! I really need a new chandelier for the foyer but deciding is going to be really difficult- just too much to drool over!

  371. <– This girl is in love with the Currey and Company Delphine Porcelain Blue Table Lamp. I'd plop this puppy down on a simple but high-gloss white modern table. Lighting is like the jewelry of the home.
