And I Said “Let There Be Light!”

Whoa. Imagine going nearly two months living in a loft (aka a box) with only one floor lamp and some lighting from the kitchen. Let me tell ya, these were two months of very long and dark nights, especially now that the sun sets at 5pm. But as of this past weekend we have light! (excuse the mess)

We had to get our electrical setup figured out before we could install the Lights Up! Deco Deluxe Pendant Lamps over our “dining” and “living” spaces. We actually decided to use just the two big sections of the pendants…after playing with the various pieces to the lamp we liked the simplicity of the two pieces. What is great though is if we ever want to change it up we can add the rest of the shades to the pendant and we’ve got a new lamp!

While going through this lighting process/challenge I have learned a bit about what it takes to give a home the right lighting. I’ve collected all of my findings in our lighting guide, but if you see anything missing or have additional insight, please share!

I enjoy wood paneled station wagons, German food and senior citizens (I am 80 years old at heart). Nearly every weekend I am taking photos at other people's weddings and I have a blog of my own (but I don't update it often enough). I love to paint, sew and knit.

    There probably isn’t a room in a house that doesn’t have some sort of lighting, what type of lighting is needed in the room first to be analysed.

    Its an informative post

    Thanks
