At the Remodelista market in Los Angeles last winter, Sarah and I finally got a chance to meet one of our blogosphere friends, Morgan Satterfield of the Brick House (she was one of our vendors, selling her Camp line of clever DIY wares, which include leather cabinet pulls, beaded lights, and her own Simple Light fixtures). We've been following the Brick House forever, taking inspiration from Morgan's clever upgrades to her midcentury house near Palm Springs. Our latest DIY obsession? Morgan's minimalist ceiling medallion.
