How To Chase Away Winter's Shadows with Accent Lighting
So where will you be at 6:28am on Monday, March 20th? Personally, I’ll be celebrating the arrival of spring! Not that I have anything against winter, but spring is my favorite season. Everything turns green again, flowers pop up, and spring training is in full swing. What’s not to love?! I do admit to holding one grudge against winter — I abhor the darkness. Yes, it’s cozy at night when you can light a fire and snuggle with the kids under a throw on the couch, but I miss the extended hours of daylight and time spent outside. ... Read More

Featured Customer | Floor Lamp Brings Portable Style to Living Room
Contrary to millions of Pinterest pins and Houzz ideabooks, you don’t always need a full-blown makeover to change up a room’s look. Accent pieces can make a big impact!

Professional's Corner | Brass Wall Sconces Offer Dramatic Style in Tight Space
As hard as I try, my nightstand always overflows. This small, but oh-so-functional piece of furniture holds the iHome, my stack of nighttime reading, a notepad and pen, plus a lamp. Then I spotted this blog post by Brooke Christen over on Nesting with Grace. Brass wall sconces not only free up space on the night stand, but they offer an elegant statement in Brooke’s master bedroom. “Our bedroom is on the smallish side,” Brooke says. “It measures about 11′ x 12′ without much room for night stands.” Brooke has lived in her 1950s-era Connecticut home for almost two years. Although the room was painted almost immediately, it... Read More
