A few weeks ago when I was putting together my monthly recap, I spent the afternoon out and about and didn’t get an updated picture I needed during daylight hours.
No worries—after all, it was the fireplace where the MR had touched up the paint to make my cluster of photos look even better. The heart of the home with three sets of lights, it would surely be well-lit. So I turned on all those switches and…
While the sconces flood the sides with light, the mantel and the place of pride above are left in shadows.
Granted, we’ve added some task lighting next to the seating area; and if it was still the sunken “conversation pit”, that area would be lit. But with all the care and effort people put in to decorating their mantel, wouldn’t it be nice if you could actually see it?
That’s why when me and the MR met with an interior designer this week about a possible master bathroom renovation, we talked lighting as well.
These little details can make or break the function of a room.
If you’re a guest at our home in the evening, you’re just going to have to trust me that the copper piece dances in the light and the sweet family pictures are pretty cute, too.
Any lighting dilemmas at your house? Don’t worry; I’ll keep you posted on any changes we make.
