Congratulations to this giveaway’s winner, Ariane! Come back October 10 for another great giveaway.

While others are busy lamenting the (unofficial) end of summer, I’ll admit I can’t wait for fall. Summer is great, sure, but fall has a lot going for it, too: perfect temperatures, brilliantly-hued leaves, hearty soups and stews and cozy fall decor updates.

Since evening light is dwindling and we’ll all be spending more time indoors, this is the perfect time to add style overhead with an updated light fixture. That’s why we partnered with Lights.com to give one lucky reader this industrial take on the classic Sputnik light fixture:

Sputnik Chandelier - Lights.com

This trendy twist on vintage lighting would look great atop a dining table or kitchen island, in an entryway or as the focal point of a master bedroom. Edison bulbs give this ceiling light a glowy ambiance, while the sleek black finish offers an industrial edge.

Congratulations, Annette and Angelina!

HGTV Handmade’s Crafters on YouTube (L to R): MegAllanColeCrafts, HGTVCrafternoon, simpleDIYs and Anneorshine

The team over at HGTV Handmade (some of YouTube’s best crafters) had a friendly competition going on with their “White Craft Challenge.” Much like the renowned HGTV Star “White Room Challenge,” where competitors must each decorate an all-white room with very limited supplies, the stars of HGTV Handmade each decorated super snooze-worthy “white” lamps following just two requirements: One, they could only use what they had in their current possession (no trips to the craft store allowed!) and two, when the lamp was finished, it must still be able to function as a light source.

Watch as the crew revealed their completed lamps (then see how you can win them!):

(You can watch the complete White Craft Challenge Series as it unfolds by visiting the HGTV Handmade channel on YouTube.)

Last week, we gave away Marianne and Meg’s lamps (they’ve already been shipped to their winners!). Today, we’re offering up the lamps crafted by Ann and Julia (below).

Congratulations to this giveaway’s random winners Melissa, Lorraine and Char. (Check your email!) Come back next month for another great giveaway.

I always feel just a little bit calmer when I step out the door into my garden. Checking on blossom progress, discovering a new vegetable sprout and even, yes, weeding mellows me out. If gardening isn’t your thing, though, there are many ways to make your yard into a sanctuary, like setting a reading bench in the shade or adding a simple decorative outdoor fountain.

For this Freebie Friday giveaway, three lucky Design Happens readers will win their choice from the three fountains below from LampsPlus.com. No backyard? These prizes would make beautiful indoor fountains, too.

Lamps Plus - Beautiful Indoor and Outdoor Fountains From LampsPlus.com

Relaxation awaits! Each of three winners may choose between (left to right) the modern Column Solar-Powered Fountain, the Aged Bronze Buddha Indoor/Outdoor Fountain and the Seven Cascades Cutaway Outdoor Fountain.

Congratulations to this month’s random winner, Zeeone! Come back on March 7 for another great giveaway.

I just returned from Altitude Design Summit, where I met fabulous makers of all sorts: jewelry designers, sewing mavens, interior designers, fashion bloggers and so much more. In addition to great panels and conversations about blogging, photography and DIY, there were some pretty amazing decorations. Check out this dessert table by HGTV.com contributor Kim Stoegbauer of the The TomKat Studio:
