We’re in the kitchen again! The temps cool down, the kids go back to school, and the urge to cook comforts like a mug of cider with a cinnamon stick. Now that you’re spending more time in the kitchen the soul of your home might need a mini-makeover. And we suggest you start with lighting. Lighting is a fashion statement and when it’s trend is over, turn the page.
We love it when a lighting project comes together. It can be putting light was there is none. It can be swapping out existing fixtures for something you love. It can be a mini-reno or a full-blown teardown. It can even be a brand new home. The client is always at the center of the process here at Madison Lighting and we love being part of it.
Ginger Martin and I shopped together at Madison Lighting this weekend. We had so much fun and I think she was surprised at all the ways she could take her screening room project. Ok, a quick update: Ginger lives in a wonderful old home and loves the trend Rustic Luxe.
When our friend Ginger Martin called and asked us to help with a new project we jumped at the chance. Ginger is that cool girl that could be your new BFF. When she’s not on the air at Magic 98, she’s out in the community, often with her little buddy Truman the Austrian Cattle Dog.
The secret to a happy life? It could be a well-appointed vanity. Everyone’s in a rush in the morning. You need space at the mirror, your accouterments at your fingertips, and great light.
In Wisconsin we seem to crave light. In our often-grey climate there simply isn’t enough. So at Madison Lighting we help people add useful, well-chosen lighting to transform spaces. And perhaps nothing transforms your life like a well-lit bathroom.
All glitz and glamour, or just a touch of bling. Your home can be your stage or you can simply add unexpected sparkle. This trend is here to stay. In our grey winter days and nights, a bit of bling really shines. This fixture, aptly named Party Girl, makes us smile. Want to try this look on? Think glamour. A gorgeous, light-filled space with daring colors, or all-white like this dressing room.
In Wisconsin, the exterior of our homes takes such a beating from the weather. Every day we help customers replace big-box store exterior light fixtures with something a bit more substantial because after just a season or 2 they look awful, and worse, they fail.
It’s a trend that’s here and hot. Mixing metals in lighting gives you so much variety, just like mixing gold and silver jewelry. One design trend known as Refined Rustic blends mixed metal lighting with vintage finds like a funky loveseat recovered with linen or a wallpaper style print.
