Lighten & Brighten that Home Office!!

After a fun but active summer, it’s time to get the house back into order.  The kids are back in school and into a normal routine so now is a great time to tackle that home office!  A stylish but functional home office will make it a place where you want to work every day.

Creating a lighting scheme that successfully produces an environment that is easy to work in should be a top priority.  Not everyone will have this incredible view designed by Locati Architects & Interiors; however, bringing in as much natural light as you can by setting up your home office space near a wall with windows, will make you more productive to handle the tasks of the day.

Whether it is hair, make-up, clothes or even table lamps, pastels are trending up for 2016.

Introduced at the October High Point Market and just featured in Residential Lighting’s January issue, Quoizel’s Dune table lamp is current, fresh and minty!  The Dune table lamp is beautifully bright and is highlighted with silver accents. The white fabric shade contrasts with the soft blue-green textured glass base.  This stunning lamp also comes in a soft bronze and antique brass.

Like a calming wave, another pastel favorite, the Seaside table lamp is cool and serene. The soft hue of the glass base features a seedy treatment and the off-white shade is topped with an accented finial. This completes the water inspired theme.
