Time for “Light” Shopping

Now that the pool is closed and the grill has been stored away, it’s time to think of entertaining indoors and replacing that old light fixture.  With such a wide variety of fixtures to choose from, it is an exciting time to go “light” shopping.

Spherical and geometric fixtures are popular as ever.  They are both beautiful and visually interesting and will easily freshen and modernize your space. Seen to the left is an island chandelier and matching pendants that offer a clean simplistic design that is traditional in theme yet suits a variety of decors. The Gallery Collection is classic with a minimalistic effect, and the slender candle sleeves come in ivory for an elegant look but are also provided in royal ebony to match the finish of this beautiful collection.

Where Is Quoizel??

When we think of Quoizel, we think of timeless pieces created for our homes. However, more and more Quoizel lighting is popping up in unfamiliar places and spaces. Adding an interesting fixture where one might not initially think to do so can take a space to a whole new level.

First impressions are lasting impressions! Adding sleek, sophisticated lighting fixtures to your office lobby will impress visitors as soon as they walk in. A glamorous chandelier will immediately bring their eyes up and make your space seem larger and more open. This Downtown chandelier (left) is elegant and cool, featuring a shiny chrome finish and opal etched glass drum shade. The shine from the glass ball accent adds some sparkle to this simple fixture making it a piece of artwork in itself and allows it to pop off of the refreshing green hue of the rest of the space. Adding pendants above an end table stands out because they’re typically used over a kitchen table or island. These Emery pendants are a seamless addition to this space (right). The chrome of the chandelier marries beautifully with the space’s other metallic accents and provides the perfect amount of light to anyone using the seating area.

What Dad Wouldn’t Want This?

This is no ordinary man cave!!  Instead of putting all those mementos in storage, incorporating them throughout the room made this room masculine and special.

Lauren, who has a passion for writing, photography and design, is thrilled to help others by sharing the trials and tribulations of renovations, projects and products.
