Lighting is a crucial element in any home. So important, in fact, that when I am showing my buyers homes, I always say, “Look up!” to them — usually we’re touring homes during the day when natural light is plentiful; then darkness falls and they realize their new homes his lacking in ceiling fixtures and they’re left in the dark!

Lighting is also a fantastic way to tie together any room and add a touch of drama, personality and flair. Whether it’s recessed lighting, pendant lighting, under cabinet lighting, an antique piece re-wired for today, or the trendiest piece around, there are lighting options to fit any personality, space and budget.
