Capturing the Wow Factor with Minimalist Lighting

It’s not that her space is chock full of décor, but rather, she has taken a more minimalist approach and thoughtfully selected pieces to include in her contemporary farmhouse. For those who eschew a minimalist style as cold and uninviting, I would urge you to take another look. While minimalist styles of lighting have clean and simple lines, they can also be visually striking enough to make a statement. It’s the small details in these fixtures that provide the ultimate wow factor. ... Read More

How To | Plug-In Lighting Offers Instant Makeover
Don’t look now but we’re on the downhill side of July.  Seriously. If you haven’t tackled your summer remodeling projects yet, we understand.

But you can still work some makeover magic in your home without spending a lot of time or money. An easy way to spruce up a room and give your space a fresh look is with lighting. But don’t worry about scheduling the electrician (he’s probably at the beach anyway). We’re talking about some of the most stylish, easy-to-customize, plug-in lighting you’ve ever... Read More

Professional's Corner | Modern Chandelier for Celebrity Nursery
Celebrity babies may have high-profile parents, but their needs are much like every other newborn’s. A comfy crib, a rocker for feeding time, and diapers. Lots of diapers. Vanessa Antonelli, a New Jersey-based designer with an extensive roster of celebrity clients, was tapped recently by Spy Kids alum Alexa PenaVega and her husband Carlos to design their new baby’s nursery. With every client, Vanessa spends a lot of time listening before she starts creating. Clients also fill out a questionnaire and share photos of anything they find appealing or inspirational. With this information, Vanessa begins the design process. ... Read More
