Remember the DIY dodecahedron light Andy made me for our laundry room?
And how we all pretended like we knew what a dodecahedron was before Andy put a name to it? (Or was that just me?)
We’ll show you details on how we made that light – and share a fun announcement! – in the next post, (UPDATE: See all the details here!) but first I thought it’d be fun to take a look at the dodecahedron trend. It’s actually a real thing, guys. People are saying the word “dodecahedron” with a straight face and no nerdy undertones in reference to decor.
I’ve fallen in love with the recent trend toward faceted lighting! Check out these fancy rooms.
This one is all relaxation and calm and marbly fanciness, until you see the pendant and then it’s all: BAM! LOOK AT THIS FACETED LIGHT. NOW SHUT UP AND RELAX.
And how ’bout this giant dodecahedron just hanging out casually over this gorgeous soaker tub, inviting us to come acquire some wrinkly fingers therein.
But the facet trend is not just in lighting – it’s taken over jewelry and housewares too.
It’s even ROCKING the world of giant snowball creation!
Would someone PLEASE explain that photo to me? I have SO MANY QUESTIONS.
The problem is, perfect dodecahedrons are hard to make. They don’t just grow on trees.
You should also know this important fact. There’s a heavy metal band called Dodecahedron. You can listen to them right here. I thought about playing their song as background music while I type this post, but just the first four seconds alone made my eardums explode. #oldage
What do you think about faceted decor? Are you a huge fan of dodecahedron: the shape OR the band? Do you geek out over all the angles and geometry, or is that just Andy? (That’s totally just Andy.) What are you crushing on?
