This is still one of my favorite experiences and a fun post,too. Hard to believe it was two years ago. Easter is a special time of year and I love it. We still have Peeps parties. It’s part of Spring.

Let’s Go:New York Easter Parade

I love over the top, intricate tile or stone for small powder rooms and baths. The use of highly dramatic color and shine adds breadth and depth to even the smallest of spaces. I am currently in the throes of redoing a powder room and though the size is small the room is tall. Ten feet. What’s so great is the opportunity for spectacular lighting along with specially appointed tiles or a incredible slab. I think there are great ideas in these images I have collected on my Pinterest board, and though I probably won’t be using a gorgeous slab on the walls for this project, I do love the idea. There are so many custom appointments for the perfectly chic bath, it is hard to narrow down the choices. I think that’s all part of the fun in the design. Don’t you?

Lighting is one of the most important aspects of my design philosophy and intricate to all design schematics. Why? Because it is the lighting that sets architecture a glow, presents landscape as architectural and renders interiors dramatic. That simple. The illumination of a room or an entire property is one of my first considerations when sourcing endless possibilities of a particular style or design in our projects. I am currently shopping for a large ceiling piece and happen to love the fixtures in these first images below. In fact, I’m sort of smitten with the classic ceiling medallion moulding paired with the expansive light fixtures. In past projects we have placed light¬† fixtures in multiples at various heights for drama and impact in dining rooms, outdoor areas and a couple of interiors with awesome exposed beams which worked out perfectly. I am really excited about the direction we are headed and with all the options I’m convinced we will elevate the illumination to a new heights…

With spring in the air and all of us waiting for some warm weather, it is the perfect time to refresh the guest room and ready ourselves for summer on the horizon. Yay! I’m going to call my best friend this weekend( lives in NYC) and see if she can come visit soon. I love getting ready for guests plus I will have a newly refreshed room for my guests to chill and relax in. Perfect.
