When helping individuals select new lighting for their home, I often end up asking them my favorite question…” where is your element of surprise?”
There is a vast sea of decorative light fixtures out there that can make home lighting selections a bit daunting, to say the least. When I see people steering onto the commonly traveled path of same family selection for every room and location, I ask this question because I feel that it is important to add the unexpected. Meaning, add some element of surprise in a location that is meaningful to you and intriguing to others. Whether it be the colorful hand-blown glass pendants hanging proudly above your new kitchen island, a trendy barrel shade chandelier hovering your dining room table, or a touch of sparkling crystal in your bedroom- adding the unexpected to your space is a way to steer clear of the “every body else has it” syndrome, leaving your home to be desired by others, and adored by you.
