Happy Wednesday loves!
Reid and I are in a holding pattern on our departure for the Outer Banks of North Carolina due to the arrival of the first big storm of the season....Arthur. We were planning on taking off this afternoon but with the bad weather looming, we are going to make a game time decision later this afternoon. Ugh, epic fail.
In the meantime, I thought it would be fun to share a glimpse of what I do everyday at work. One of my responsibilities at my company is to handle all of the lighting selections for our local showrooms. This is one of my favorite aspects of my job, as I am allowed full creative authority on new display lighting.
People ask me all the time,
"What is your favorite light fixture?"
"What is your go to lighting brand?"
"What lights are in style right now?"
There are no easy answers to any of the above questions and this is the reason I love lighting so much.
Lighting is very personal and I have found people have very specific opinions on what they like and what they don't like. I love the "wow" moment when you just know that a light is perfect for your space. The the main challenge in designing displays is trying to capture everyone's style preference in a single showroom and moving past my own taste.
Lighting manufactures have really stepped up their game this year with their product offerings. There are so many fun trends in lighting at the moment and am loving every single one.
These are just a few of my favorites!
two toned light fixtures
nautical meet, industrial
gold tones are coming back!
The fixtures below are the ones that kept catching my eye as I flipping through the many catalogs in my office. I wish I had a house big enough to use every single one in some capacity!
Lighting is like the jewelry of your home and can turn any ordinary space in to an extraordinary one with the change of a fixture.
Which one is your favorite?
don't miss one minute of fun ~ follow along!
