The Power of Overhead Lighting

Ever walk in a room and feel as if something magical is happening? You cannot place your finger on it but it just feels right.  Such is the power of the perfect placement of unique lighting.
It is my greatest victory when a client or guest will say, "Wow!  That light fixture is gorgeous." They come out of nowhere but make the greatest statement in an environment just in front of wall paint color.
Here are a few of my favorites from the BID archives... Simple industrial fixture in a dark teal room next to an edited french chair and lovely peonies from belle magazine.  An incredibly large and strong piece over a silvered shell form and a feathered beauty that feels like spring from the most recent issue of Metropolitan Home.
Two years ago in the December edition, Met Home featured an o- so- dramatic stairway fixture that cries out as the most unexpected departure from the somewhat traditional surroundings. The creme de la creme of the most spectacular ceiling drama is from Elle Decor.  Awwww .....
