stained-glass-retro-table-lamps-tiffany-style-dragonfly-pattern_uhghzx1371713495853My computer recently had some major issues and completely stopped working, which is a problem for me, because I am a writer. Most of the time I’ve been going to the library to get computer work done, while I work at home on building a new computer. However, something that I’ve been doing a lot of when it comes to writing is writing out my thoughts by hand.

I kind of like writing my thoughts by hand, lit by the Tiffany table lamps that I have in my house. There’s something that feels a little bit more personal when it comes to writing by hand, as opposed to writing it on a computer. I feel like the things I write down last longer in my head when I physically write them out; I wonder why that is.

Metal-Hanging-Wall-Art-ideas-for-Living-RoomI had some friends visit my new apartment for the first time yesterday and they immediately questioned my decorating ability. It’s not really my strong suit and they were giving me some pointers about how I could spruce things up. Apparently, my problem is a tendency to keep things looking very drab and dull, when I’m left to my own elements.

Luckily, one of my friends has decided to help me add some life to my place. Her first suggestion was that I add some Tiffany lamps to certain areas of the apartment, because my apartment is low on lighting and there’s not a lot of interesting décor pieces either. I actually really like them; I think that these lamps are definitely a good start.

ISHERWOOD-Jp-1-articleInlineThe Belasco Theatre is a Broadway theatre that opened in 1907 in Manhattan; it was initially known as the Stuyvesant Theatre, but was renamed for the man it was designed for: playwright, director, and theatrical producer David Belasco. The designer was George Keister, who also designed the Apollo Theater and the Bronx Opera House, among other famous buildings.

The Belasco Theatre is known for its Tiffany lighting and ceiling panels, as well as murals that were done by artist Everett Shinn. The theatre is where Marlon Brando had his first widely recognized success, which has since been known as a moment that helped jump-start his career and move him eventually towards film.
