#6: Lighten Up
Proper lighting can make or break any space. To create the proper lighting for different spaces, you have to consider how the space is used, e.g. reading vs. entertaining, but also who is going to be using the space, the time of day or night, the focus of the light on art or furniture and yes, whether or not it’s flattering. Dimmers are a must for any overhead lighting in order to change the wattage when you change the activity, and lighting set on timers makes adding drama and effect simple and easy. Adding lower-level ambient lighting softens a space at night, creating intimacy and drawing attention to seating areas. Accent lights and can lights behind floor plants add dramatic shadows and contrast for bargain rates. Softly tinted ambient lighting creates mood and flatters skin, flattering hosts and guests alike!
Hint: Our winter holidays are visually defined by lights, but creating holiday themes can be expensive and time consuming. Candles are the simplest, easiest and most cost effective way to honor a season and create a warm mood to counteract the dark days of winter. Scented candles personalize a space and are easily matched to a season.

…change your light fixtures. Have you had the same pendant hanging in your entry or above your dining table for years? Not so fond of the table lamp on your bedside table? Try something new!

The tulip table lamp is a recent introduction from Belgian lighting company, .MGX. Acclaimed designer, Peter Jansen is behind this innovative design that is part of the .MGX E-volution collection.
All .MGX designs, from lighting to jewelry, are created using revolutionary 3D printing techniques. They are built up layer by layer using a laser technology called 3D layered manufacturing. This process shapes, in most cases, a single piece of material without using seams or joints. .MGX works with some of the top architects, artists and designers from around the world to create pieces that are near impossible to recreate using any other type of manufacturing process.
