Can't Get Enough: Shiny Disco Balls











While I still love a disco nap,
and even some disco fries...

these days,
I don't really do
the night club thing anymore...

However....

Whether you're a brother
whether your a mother,
You're stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Feel the city breakin'
And everybody shakin'
And we're stayin' alive
stayin' alive
ah ha ha ha
stayin' alive!
~*~

I need to figure out
where I can make a disco ball
work in my own house!

  3. lovely, funny enough we have a disco-esq ball in our reception room. I love it, will miss it when we move, no room for modern in our new rustic house. Love the alcove picture as well.

  14. I wouldn't have expected it to look so good with the antiques, but it works! I think I like it better than with the more modern furnishings. And I never would have thought I was a disco ball girl ... hmmm ...

  15. The picture that is fourth from the bottom - I'm pretty sure that originally appeared in the latest Lonny and I have to tell you, I obsessed over that whole house and I NEVER noticed the disco ball! GREAT eye! Cool touch in so many different types of spaces...

  19. Fun! I wanted to used Z Gallerie's Belvedere Lamp in our bedroom. The boy thought it looked too much like a disco ball. I thought that was a good thing (Since he likes disco and all)
    Guess Not :(

  20. You are a brave lady! I love the looks you've posted -- Especially the second, but I just don't think I could ever bring myself to put a disco ball in my house! Hehe ...

    ReplyDelete
  21. Never thought I would ever say that they can look good. They do, especially in the first picture

    ReplyDelete
  22. I've always wanted a disco ball... My mom wouldn't let me have one as a 10-year-old, no matter how much I pleaded (apparently she thought they were tacky? Pssshhh). These rooms are very, very cool; I like how the ball was used in the second photo.

  23. Fantastic images. I love the black and pink room with the disco ball - the black could have been so serious, but instead the room is a ton of fun.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Love it. Thanks for getting that song in my head all day now. Just put you on my featured blogs list on my blog.

  26. Fun, fun, fun!! You need a disco ball because you are such a fun loving spirit. I really like them sitting more than hanging. It feels more unexpected. I think it would be totally cool to put different sized ones inside the fireplace in the summer months, what a conversation piece!! Happy Monday, stayin' alive, stayin' alive hmmmm, hmmmm!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh, my! Do I hear Gloria Gaynor in the background... Great post for a Monday!

    ReplyDelete
  28. So much fun! If I had one in my house I would crank the music and dance all the time! I've even seen them for Christmas trees.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Good eye to catch all these disco balls! These images show they can work in any space, who would have thought?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Ha ha ha, you are funny! I like the shiny disco balls in such unexpected spaces.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Who would have guessed that a disco ball could look so great?!

    ReplyDelete
  32. "I Will Survive" is playing in my head! Love the disco ball in the fireplace for some odd reason.

    xo,

  33. Love it! I can't believe how fabulous it looks in so many different places! xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love you lots, for lots of reasons, but this really sent me over the edge. We are doing this in our family room and cannot wait to be able to find out once and for all who of our friends is really "my people" by testing their reaction to it. Wanna come have a dance party once its up!?

    ReplyDelete
  36. OK that is just FABULOUS! I want to make one work too!

    Hope u had a great weekend :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. I totally love how these are worked into such unexpected places -- I say put one anywhere, it seems like it would work (even if only because it's such a bold move!).

    ReplyDelete
  38. What a fun statement piece!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I LOVE this idea!!!! How very fun...keep it "alive", yes! :)

    Happy Monday to you my dear :)

    P.S. I am holding you responsible for getting Staying Alive into my head :)

  40. I would never even have noticed them in some of those rooms. I like them when they arent hung on the ceiling.

    ReplyDelete
  41. That made me giggle! How about putting one in a little reading alcove or the powder bath or even the laundry room! A bit of whimsy is always welcome!
    thanks for starting my day off on a happy note...no pun intended!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I never quite thought they looked this good in home. The first one looks amazing. Added a really different touch to the overall. Nice for a change.

    ReplyDelete
  43. You go girl! Get your dancing shoes on!! Fun post.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Nice concept, it makes the space lively and unique! I have something similar in my hallway but it is a real lighting fixture...

  50. These are GREAT. Know what I love best? I've seen a number of these images before... and I NEVER noticed the disco ball!! Unobservant? Yes. But also proof that you incorporate this look into a room and not have it overwhelm. It's completely livable. Really cool post - thanks!

  55. You know, I like little oddities too. You make me want to look for disco balls. Maybe you could use it in your powder room (half bath) if you have one?

    ReplyDelete
  56. That first room is my FAVORITE!

    ReplyDelete

  64. Ginormous disco ball in the fireplace. Hello. Genius. Where could I get one of those?!

    That's 1 of the many reasons I love paintballing... people never think I do it. It's so unexpected. So mysterious. Haha. :)

    ReplyDelete
  65. What took me so long to find you. Well, I guess not so long. I've only lifted this blogger rock two months ago. Addictive!! Love your blog. And, Now I love disco balls. I, too, have seen many of these images and never noticed (some) of the disco balls. They are unbelievably cool in the more ornate and traditional rooms, like the first and 4th. And boy do I love that 5th. That should be my house, all pinky like that. I am going to do a post on how sophisticated pink is and I think I'll use this photo. (I'm learning to tag it with the credit immediately). Thanks for the inspiration!
