The Kitchen

During the holidays the kitchen becomes so much more than a place to prepare a meal, it becomes the central hub of all the holiday buzz. Selecting fixtures for this main entertaining area requires intentional and flexible lighting that can adapt as the day progresses. Kitchen lighting should not only be beautiful to look at, but also provide adequate amounts of light to prepare food and drinks, and keep the party going long after the sun has set.

PRO TIP: while the sky’s the limit when it comes to sizes and styles, be sure to choose a style that goes along with the overall design theme of your home for an intentional and cohesive look.

The Dining Room

This space sets the stage for the year’s biggest meal event (dare we say the Superbowl of dinners?) Great food will be had, conversations will be shared, drinks will clink, and cherished memories will be made. Lighting has a wonderful ability to influence mood and ambiance, so your selection here will help create so much more than a place to eat food, it will create an entire dining experience. Remember, this is one area of the home in particular where you can push the limits! So embrace the drama and have a little (or a lot of) fun!

PRO TIP: be sure this fixture is placed on a dimmer so you can lower the light for a more intimate meal and brighten it back up for clean up.

The Living/Great Room

After a large meal, what do we all want to do? Lounge! Create a cozy after-meal experience with beautiful overhead lighting and various lamps and sconces to highlight your home’s beautiful character.

PRO TIP: a properly executed lighting plan includes layers of lighting features. Not only does this give occupants options based on where they are seated or the desired mood, but gives homeowners a chance to accentuate the home’s architecture, highlight a piece of art, etc.

As we enter the season of thanks and entertaining our loved ones, let’s shine a light on all that we are grateful for!
