Light Up Your Life!
January's Lightovation in Dallas was a blast!
Let's talk more about the importance of lighting for your space.
Dining Room Lighting
When it comes to dining room lighting, make it fabulous! It’s a great opportunity to make a statement. There are guidelines, however: make sure your chandelier isn’t wider than your table, and let it hang in the sweet spot 33”-36” off your table to the bottom of the fixture – never higher or lower.
Outdoor Spaces - Light Up the Night
Bathrooms - Lighting is (Almost) Everything
The lighting in your master bathroom should be multi-directional lighting that illuminates the room from the top, sides, and even underneath. Do the work to prevent shadows, and you’ll notice the difference when you put on makeup, pluck an eyebrow, or shave a mustache. This is where those precise tasks take place – light them right!
Your Kitchen - Light Every Surface
Lighting is critical in a kitchen. Opt for recessed lighting overall, but take this opportunity to take the lighting scheme further – over-cabinet lighting, under-cabinet lighting, toe-kick lighting, fabulous island lights and pendants. All on dimmers, if possible. Give yourself options to create mood according to how you entertain.
Entry Ways - A Moment of Light
This might be the most important light fixture you choose for your home –the light in your entryway. Make sure it feels fabulous! This one pendant or chandelier is a great way to establish the ambiance, and be sure to hang it 7’ above the floor – no lower, and not much higher.
These pendants are vibing! The circulating bands remind me of beautiful bangles. These pendants are gorgeous as a single fixture, lined up in a row, or clustered together in varying lengths and sizes.
Edge 5-Arm Chandelier
Don't just light a room, make a statement. Whether it's for a bedroom, entryway, or dining room, the Edge Chandelier is sure to make an impression. Pair it with the matching sconce for a cohesive, finished look in your space.
Icon Sconce and Icon Semi Flush
The bold lines and grand proportions of these fixtures make them pieces of art as well as practical, ambient lighting. They really make a dramatic statement in any space.
