I am constantly amazed by the imagination and beauty of lighting in today’s world. My mother was an architect and I grew up with a back porch that was illuminated by lights recessed into the ceilings and disguised as stars. A memory so lovely that I still love the night stars.

My mom would approve.

It Is The Little Things

Sometimes the best lighting of all is a power failure. - Doug Coupland.jpg

I am grateful for rainy nights (like tonight), a roof over my head to keep me dry, and a lovely family to share a delicious dinner filled with laughter and talk. Turning off the television, losing lights, just taking a moment from social media is refreshing to this busy REALTOR. These are the moments I live for. I wish them for you too.


Small Chic Spaces


Small spaces can be quite chic with the use of art, pendant lighting (or any great cohesive lighting) and a sense for design and detail. In fact, it’s all in the detail as you will see with this super cute small condo.

Chandelier Magic


Most of you who regularly read this blog know that I have a passion for chandeliers. My Mother was a lighting architect and put outrageous and stunning lighting in most of the Miami Beach hotels. I grew up loving sparkle, glitz and glamour.

A chandelier adds an elegant feature to a home and elevates the room from ordinary to extraordinary. This chandelier is called a French empire style design. It has that wow factor.

Empire style is a French 19th century design aesthetic that was defined by opulence and ornate touches. Fast forward to now and there is whole category of crystal and other material chandeliers that is considered a French Empire style chandelier. The silhouette is narrow at the top and then curves down into a bowl or cup shape at the bottom.
