I’ve been working on lighting for a few projects…these clients are on the contemporary end of the design spectrum.  Their spaces, however, are not architecturally modern per se, so it’s a balance to infuse clean contemporary lighting in the home while respecting its structural bones.

At first glance, these fixtures might appear overly sleek for many interiors, yet they work brilliantly in so many interior design venues as illustrated below.  I’d love to hear your thoughts and preferences.

These fixtures are not for the faint at heart; they are investment pieces, works of art if you will. I look forward to sharing a bit more lighting as the week progresses, with a feature on sconces of the modern variety.

Until then, smile and thank you for being here.  We are experiencing a bit of fall weather today and I absolutely love it; boyfriend and I prefer this time of year over any other season; for some reason, it energizes me.  I love the actual change of season and all that comes with it.  G turns 3 years old this Saturday….He’s turning into such a magical, colorful, richly playful boy.  I can barely believe how lightning fast time has flown by since he blessed our lives and our home.

I’ll leave you with this thought for today, which I had in my inbox this morning and found particularly fitting.

“Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all
the others.”
