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. Above: Morgan created a simple plywood disk to cover an unsightly ceiling electrical box. Above: The view from below. The brass Simple Light is Morgan's own design; $125 from Camp, her online shop; inqure about availability. For step-by-step DIY instructions, go to the  Brick House .  Above: The Simple Light in white. Above: The installation in progress. Another favorite DIY project from Morgan? See DIY: Slat Railing Project . Doing a hands-on remodel?
