Lighting Designs

Beautiful rooms include beautiful lighting designs, an important element in interior design.  Room lighting plans are many times forgotten or left until the end of the project and not considered a part of the overall room design.  But it is!  Read more about how to create a home lighting design.  Here are some of my favorite light fixture pics.  Each has its own style.

I fell in love with this one!  It is made from Saguran fibers of
Talipot Palm leaves from the Philippines.
I can envision it hanging in a small sunroom sitting area.

Mood Board Design

Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words.  I created this mood board to capture the look and feel of my vision for the space so my client can experience the mood of the room.  Think of it as a drawing board or planning board.  This is a great communication tool for my client and me so we can work out the details together.
