1. Bathroom Mini-Reno? Start Here

    A full renovation of a bathroom can easily run thousands of dollars. Fortunately, most bathrooms only require a thoughtful refresh if the fixtures and tile are sound. With some clever planning a bathroom can take on a completely new look without replacing the tile and tub. We’ve helped countless c…Read More

  2. Thirsty for…COLOR!

    A customer told me last week that she was done with the baked potato look. I looked puzzled so she continued. “I love a neutral room but I’m restless, kind of thirsty for color!” She came to the right place. Our showroom is brimming with gorgeous home décor from framed art to interesting obje…Read More

  3. My Own Bathroom

    A customer recently shared a revelation: for the first time in her life she would have a master bathroom! No kid’s toothpaste in her sink or damp and overstuffed hamper to empty before she could slip into the tub. We high-fived and then she said this: “I want to start with the lighting. I want t…Read More

  4. Light In Your Mirror

    Living in a house with teenage boys? With fingerprints over the doorways from ‘dunking’ as they hustle through, to laundry baskets of dirty athletic-wear, your bathroom remodel is all about “the essentials.” You need cabinets that can take it, a shower built for their 6’3” frames and siz…Read More

  5. California Dreamin’

    Funny the things you notice. On the set of the hit TV show Empire, the character Jamal has this incredible loft. The kitchen is earthy and sleek, with a Carrera marble-topped island, high-gloss cabinets, and appliances from Sub-Zero and Wolf. But it was the kitchen’s copper pendants that caught my…Read More

  6. Ginger Wraps Up

    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 Ma…Read More

  7. Shopping With Ginger

    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. She and her pup, Truman, share …Read More

  8. Ginger & the Screening Room

    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. She rescued Tr…Read More

  9. How To Mix Metals

    Just like fashion, mixed metals are making it into our lives at home. And, just like fashion, it can be tricky mixing metals. We are seeing more and more lighting that mixes metal finishes and clients are often quite taken with them. For years we banned brass thinking it looked dated. So unfair. I t…Read More

  10. Ripped From a Magazine

    A couple of weeks ago when a couple told us, “We want to make a beautiful space to create a bountiful buffet, and (the wife added) I want it to look like a magazine,” you can imagine the excitement. Out came the photos of her space, her Pinterest pics, paint colors, and her wishes for the drama …Read More
