Consultant Spotlight – Brenda Duepner

brendaHelping to select lighting for model homes is something that is not new to our lighting consultants here at Creative Lighting.  Sometimes merging the latest unique and interesting trends with selections that will appeal to the masses and please the builder can be a complex feat, but veteran lighting designer Brenda Duepner found success this Spring while doing just that.  When Doug Paulson of Paulson Construction Inc. acquired Brenda’s assistance for his latest project, he was more than pleased with the outcome. “Lighting selections for a project like this can be more than overwhelming.  You want to be sure to get the right size and scale, and the right look for the finished space,” says Paulson.Brenda-Varaluz  When Brenda encouraged Doug to take a chance on the dynamic new Flow, six-light fixture from Varaluz for the kitchen dinette area, he was hesitant at first.  “Doug was a little uncertain about the scale of the fixture I was suggesting for the space, and the visual impact it may have,” says Brenda.  “I was confident that this fixture was exactly what the space required- and that it would not be overwhelming, but instead a great statement piece for that home.”  Varaluz, a manufacturer that prides itself on creating high quality and handcrafted lighting product out of eco-friendly materials, is known for these statement fixtures, and has been a showroom favorite for the last few years.  “We had just displayed the Flow fixture in the showroom,” says Brenda.  “It just seemed like the right choice for the look he was trying to achieve.”   “It turned out beautifully,” says Paulson.  “I couldn’t be happier with the selections Brenda had suggested, they really make the home.”
