Show Stopping Lighting

Tie a Room Together with a Statement Fixture

The right lighting can take a space from dark and dingy to bright and beautiful. Many modern fixtures serve a dual purpose and act as unique décor and functional lighting for a variety of spaces in the home.   A well-lit room is filled with a soft and subtle glow that makes for a homey and happy space. Warm lighting encourages family bonding and lots of late night sharing and story swapping.  Here are some tips and tricks to find the right lighting fixture to make every room in your home a bright spot:

A spider chandelier gives a kitchen space a bit of edgy energy. Black and chrome pendants are funky and fresh. Perfect for an updated kitchen design, this industrial lighting fixture offers a chic and playful addition overhead.

The cherry blossoms are blooming

The summer is coming and everything is starting to feel fresh, new and exciting.  The cherry blossoms are blooming, the grass is extra vibrant and sun shines longer each day.  In design, another sign of spring is a busy phone line and lots of new exciting projects.  It’s amped up spring cleaning and I love it!  Over the past few weeks, we have started a few new kitchen designs and I’m feeling very inspired by the fresh mood of spring.  And what’s more fresh than a bright white kitchen?  White kitchens have been a trend forever and I doubt will ever die as a great option for any home.  Whether modern, traditional, small or large, it works and gives space for the home to grow and change it over time.  A home can update the accents and replace the furniture, all around the kitchen. Because as you know, the kitchen is the heart of the home.

Here are few kitchens by us and other design firms that are fresh and ready for the summer dinners ahead.
