Setting a Mood

Are you looking for ways to energize a room or show off its best features?

If so, then lighting is the answer. I have staged, redesigned and decorated thousands of rooms and it still amazes me at the transformation a room can have once the proper lighting is added.

From setting a mood to highlighting a room’s best features, lighting is the easiest and least expensive way to make a room more interesting.   

Here is a list of ways you can use lighting to update a room:
