Is that a birdcage light? If so where to get it.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Add a dash of island glamour. For a refined yet relaxed look, take inspiration from the colonial-style homes of the tropics. Pictured here is the Bahamas home of interior decorator India Hicks, decorated in the French Caribbean style. To achieve this look, use elegantly curved dark wood furniture and decorate with quirky island touches such as a shelf of straw hats and a rattan birdcage.
A birdcage. A vintage birdcage introduces a large dose of texture and a conversation-starting shape over this dining room table. Open your eyes to all sorts of sculptural objects that could take on a bulb or surround a chandelier.
Laura Gaskill added this to Savor Natural Scents at Home
Polished wood. Go back to the basics with a product like Murphy's Oil Soap or a beeswax-based floor polish to give your home that good, clean church-pew smell and make the wood gleam.
Tiffany Carboni added this to Over-the-Door Shelves Offer Sneaky Storage
Add the unexpected. Here a collection of vintage hats creates an interesting scene between rooms.
2. Look for little-used spaces. What better place for a hat collection than on a shelf above a doorway? These hats not only add character to the room, they’re also easy to grab on the way out.
