Impact with Lighting

Never underestimate the impact light has on a room or its ability to set the atmosphere. The pendent fixture (above) is a show stopper. One might say this glass and chrome fixture is a throw back, retro, classic or even old school. When grouped three in a row in a classic black and white kitchen...the kind of kitchen you see in old movies with the checked floors...I just say cool!!

So you're looking for a fixture to...set it off. Well, this is it!! It's Euro, jeweled, and girlie... It can dress up the most subdued decor and it's 40wat bulbs create just enough light for a relaxing night at home with a glass of chardonnay.

When you want task lighting why not add this floral patterned shade lamp? Use it on your desk for journal writing and enjoy its feminine fuschia base which looks great with coordinating accessories.
With a fixture as beautiful and exotic as this why not bring it indoors.... though it's iron and rustic it would function well as ambient lighting....I'd use a scented candle...ahh

"Let there be light"! What better lighting can you have than natural glowing light from mother's the best...let it in!

I like that touch of blue in the pottery and throw pillow. Is that a black paint or dark brown? Love it!
