outdoor lanternsI recently have been working on decorating my garden to give the entire space a much more beautiful look and feel. I would like to be able to have a space that I can be proud to show off to my friends on a regular basis. I plan on adding different decorations and lights to make the yard look wonderful during the day and at night as well.

To make sure that I am able to get the look that I want, I have started to look at some different types of outdoor lanterns that I could put around the yard. These lanterns would sit on top of posts and decorate the yard in a way that would make it look like a park from times long past. I am excited about the prospect of being able to have these beautiful lanterns in place.

I have been looking at many other items that can fit with this kind of decorating scheme. I have managed to find some beautiful benches and garden statues that I think would really fit the theme. I am excited to be able to find more items that I can use to make it so that my garden looks a lot more beautiful all of the time.

ceiling light fixturesI have recently been doing what I can to make sure that I am able to install some brighter and more attractive light fixtures in my home. I decided that it would be best to have fixtures that went on the ceiling since these would look so nice and brighten up rooms better. I was focused on making sure that the fixtures would be exactly what I needed.

I was able to look at a lot of different fixtures that would probably fit in with the decor, but I was picky and only wanted ones that would fit in and look the way I wanted them too. I was eventually able to find the perfect ceiling light fixtures to use in my house. It was great being able to finally have bright light throughout my home.

tiffany style table lampsWhen I first was looking for some different types of lamps that I might be able to have in my living room, I was focused on a bunch of lamps that were fairly plain in design. I didn’t have very many bright colors in my decor so I though plain designs would be better. I didn’t really like most of the lamps I saw though because they were just too plain.

I decided that it might be a lot better if I were able to have some lamps that would stand out a bit more since these would contrast with the rest of the space and help to make it a bit more interesting. I started to look for a lot of different types of Tiffany style table lamps since these were bright and beautiful. It was exciting to have these lamps in my home.

With the Holiday Season approaching, Night Lights can make a great gifts. Nite-Lites, as they are sometimes referred to, come in a vast variety of shapes, sizes, and themes. Gently casting an ambient glow, these beacons provide soothing assistance in alleviating a child’s night terrors; and provide a degree of safety for adults, when having to get out of bed at night. Austrian Crystal Night Lights are a beautiful, and decorative option. These are eye-catching in the daytime as well.

On the other hand, a single, dim light in a large room makes it seem uninviting. You can remedy this with lamps around the room, but those need to be turned on and off individually and are limited to the number of outlets in the room. An easier, more modern lighting solution is track lighting on the ceiling.

With track lighting, several lights are spaced out across the ceiling and can be adjusted to direct light at various parts of the room. This allows you to light the entire room from the ceiling with the flip of a single switch – no lamps to turn on and off or electrical cords to trip over. It can also replace an outdated light fixture to give the room a more modern look.

yhst-65265159070310_2063_109653609If your bathroom doesn’t have a skylight or large windows, it lacks natural light, which is the best for shaving and applying makeup. Some artificial lights have an unflattering, yellowish tinge to them, making you look sickly and tired in your own bathroom. To start your days off right, you should invest in soft white bulbs for a flattering glow. If your bathroom light fixtures are the problem, they may need to be replaced.

Installing new vanity lights can make a world of difference in your bathroom. The more light you have, the better, so replacing a single light with a row of three or four would be a monumental improvement. Make sure the fixtures are made of white frosted glass, not yellow, so they cast out a soft, flattering glow. Repainting your bathroom with a warm color, like a soft blush or beige, can also do wonders for your complexion.

The History of the Chandelier

While the chandelier might just be something that you’ve always had in your dining room, it actually has a varied and interesting history. To that end, the first chandelier appeared in medieval times. It was basically a candle chandelier, meaning two pieces of woods were nailed together, and candles were secured to the ends of the wood pieces. With technological advances, the chandelier advanced right along as well. Today, it is typically thought of as a branched and decorative light fixture mounted to the ceiling.

No matter what time period they hail from or what region of the world, chandeliers are known for their complex collection of glass and crystal prisms. This often fills the room with vibrant colors and refracted light. Not surprisingly, some of the most decorative and ornate of all chandeliers hailed from France. Famous for their excess and opulence during the era of pre-Revolution Versailles, truly amazing chandeliers were a fixture among the palaces and castles of that day.

Classic Outdoor Lighting

Vintage Lighting

In this day and age, the majority of the new outdoor lighting fixtures seem a little bit boring.  In centuries past, cast iron candle lanterns brought unique character to an outdoor space, and while using a candle doesn’t make much sense in modern times, there’s no reason modern lighting fixtures should lack character.  Installing vintage lights outdoors is a great way to add character to an outdoor space.  Unique vintage lighting wrought from metal and designed to appeal to our classic sensibilities makes a great addition to a porch, garage, or even deck. 

In addition to having distinctive character, vintage lighting tends to last much longer than other lighting fixtures.  We all know that things were made much sturdier back in their initial conception, and vintage lighting is no exception!

Installing Lights Underneath the Counter

undercounterlights-horseshoe-hardwareNobody likes stumbling around in the dark looking for a light switch, but let’s face it, when your eyes aren’t adjusted to the light, turning on the lights can be just as painful.  A great solution to this dilemma, whether in the bathroom or the kitchen, is under counter lights.  With proper installation, these lights can be left on all the time and provide a dim light source that will help you avoid stumbles and falls but won’t blind you either.  Under counter lights are also quite popular in modern design; most contemporary kitchens come with them installed beneath the counters or more commonly, the cabinets. 

Most under counter lights are easy to install as well, though the electrical can be a bit trickier.  But even if you need to hire an electrician, the fixtures and the wiring can be installed in no more than an hour.  If you’re a bit of a handyman, you can do it yourself too!
