I have been a bad, BAD blogger. No two ways about it. I have been busy, distracted and focused on other things…namely, beginning design concepts for our upcoming remodel. Awesome and terrifying at the same time ( why is it so much easier to design for a client than it is for yourself??? ). One of the biggest hurdles has been the selection of lighting. I need bedroom, bathroom and office lighting. Ugh. And given that I tend to like simple, clean spaces, the lighting will be absolutely critical. It’s like the perfect accessory to go with that little black dress…the detail(s) that is needed to really finish the spaces off well. It doesn’t help that I really, really love lighting – so narrowing down the fixtures will be a big challenge for me. I believe that lighting is one of the most critical elements of interior design. The design of the lighting fixture is, in itself – absolutely critical and can be very tough to narrow down given all the options out there, but the quality of light it produces is just as critical. There is also the ( damn ) lighting code…and of course there is the cost. Apparently every fixture I have honed in on is at the higher end of the price spectrum…go figure. I thought I would share a few of the fixtures I have on my ‘wish list’ so far. The styles may seem quite varied, but I love so many styles…which only adds to the thrill (?) of the hunt. Enjoy!
