We've seen lamps in the shape of stones today, but they're not nearly as interesting as any levitating lamp coming from Crealev. The company can create all sorts of levitating objects, which use magnets to literally defy gravity. And levitating lamps are definitely some interesting objects to have around the house. Light sources that float are surely going to fit well with any modern home design, not to mention that they'll have the neighbors and all your friends talking about such innovative trickery. There are various Crealev levitating lamp designs to choose from, and you're probably going to be able to order some custom creations too. Considering that Halloween is just around the corner, maybe getting a bunch of levitating lamps right now wouldn't be such a bad idea, as they could do wonders in the neighborhood. Via Crealev

Electrical outlets are necessary to power all of our modern appliances, but they often power-down when it comes to style. The plain white, flat electrical outlet is fine for some, but for the modern home designer who is fanatic about details, it’s just not up to snuff. Here are three ways you can upgrade your electrical outlets to spark some more style.
If you have a whimsical air to your modern home, you can surround your electrical outlets with fun and fresh decals. Frame them with flowers or surround them with swirls. Decals are cute and will make your electrical outlet look as if it was part of the design plan all along.

Covering an electrical outlet with a modern plate is a tasteful and cost-effective way to make them appear as part of the design – or disappear altogether. You can purchase outlet plates that will blend in with your paint or wallpaper, or get zany or sophisticated patterns to make them pop.

Covering electrical outlets altogether is also an option. You might have to do a little hunting to find the right approach, but many designers today have responded to the need to upgrade electrical outlets. They have produced covers like the one pictured above, that make an outlet stand out not for its blandness but rather for its modern style.
