Beautiful lighting

Last month I was fortunate to be featured in the San Francisco Chronicle in their Stylemaker Spotlight section (I've re-posted the link below), one of my tips or rather dislikes is strong overhead lighting. Bright lights make everything look harsh - our complexion, our furniture, rugs, etc. Ambient lighting is far more soothing. In my designs I like to use chandeliers with dimmers, table lamps everywhere, floor lamps and uplights to highlight plants. It's an easy fix and looks so much better.

Here are a few of my favourites:

If you are interested in any of the above pieces, then please contact me.

  2. Val, they are all beautiful but the floor lamp is absolutely to die for!
