We’re a few weeks into 2019 and for many of you that means resolutions to improve health and overall well being. This ‘out with old, in with the new’ frame of mind can also apply to numerous aspects of your everyday life. Perhaps you are looking to start the year with a new career, a revamped wardrobe, or a remodeled home. Regardless of what your plans are, remember, sometimes small changes can add up to big results.
Were you gifted a unique piece of wall art over the holidays? Did you score a bold furniture piece during those after Christmas sales? Give those items all the attention they deserve by making them the focal point of your room with accent lighting. This can mean anything from a pair of stylish wall sconces to picture lights to an elegant floor lamp that puts the focus on that special item that everyone will gravitate toward.
With more and more attention being drawn to environmentally-friendly products, many of us are realizing the importance of purchasing items that are being sourced responsibly. With that in mind, consider lighting fixtures made of all natural materials like wood and bamboo. For example, a trendy outdoor ceiling fan with elaborate bamboo blades will keep your guests cool and allow you to be one with nature.
Consider lighting fixtures that are made of recycled or up-cycled materials. This usually means you’ll have a one-of-a-kind design that everyone will covet. You can also cut down on your carbon footprint with eco-friendly bulbs whenever possible. You’ll be doing something good for the Earth and your wallet will also reap the rewards with a reduced power bill.
Lighting has such a huge role in how we feel when we walk into a room and it can have such an impact on our moods. Start the year by taking a small step in feeling energized and inspired every time you walk through your door!
