ONE ROOM CHALLENGE GUEST PARTICIPANT – WEEK THREE – MY LAMP OBSESSION

w e l c o m e   t o

I have never taken a professional decorating course. But I have been “a student of decorating” since I was a very little girl. I would always wonder…”Why does this persons house look so much better than that persons’ house?” and I came to the conclusion  this will be in the book...entitled..”Useless and not so useless stuff that I have learned along the way…” .that There are, in my opinion , TWO make or break elements when it comes to decorating – ART and LIGHTING. And sometimes the LIGHTING is ON the ART…but These two things can transform and elevate a space…give it personality and bring YOU into the space if that makes sense…and  take it to the next level.

Think of any room that has turned your head, stopped you in your tracks, made you weak at the knees…and I bet that room had Great lighting and incredible ART.

 

I also have a wallpaper obsession, paint color obsession and can get giddy taking about sideboards…I have a lot of friends.

This week I am going to focus on the LIGHTING and LAMPS and NEXT week we are going to talk about one of my favorite things in the world – ART.

Even if you start all brand new…with every single thing fresh and perfect…over time…you will experience change.
