Delicious Lighting

Nine months ago, I went into a custom built home that took my breath away. I had left my kids in the car as I raced through the house. When I came out, the kids said, "What did you think?" and I said, "The light fixtures were absolutely delicious!!!!" My kids looked at me like I was a weirdo, but I really think that my mouth began to salivate as I coveted all of the Circa Lighting pendants & sconces. (FYI: the interior designer for this breathtaking house was the super talented, Wendy Barze.)

Earlier this week, the good Lord was smiling down on me when I stumbled across the Circa Lighting Facebook page. And what to my wandering eyes should appear...but a "Black Friday WEEK" sale at Circa Lighting. It was 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday morning. I quickly formulated a plan to drive my kids to Gadsden and then drive to Hotlanta to see what deals I could find.

Long story short, I spent 3 hours in the store with the most patient salesperson, Teri Edler. She helped me create some fabulous "lighting-scapes" for each room. I am SO glad I made that trip to the ATL!!!

Check out some of our "lighting scapes"...

BTW, the other night I went to see Twilight New Dawn. Just as Bella is about to die from her weird pregnancy, I lean over to my fellow "Twi-hard Mom," Rachel, and say, "Look at those fabulous Circa Lighting Caged Lantern pendants with paper shades above the island. Aren't they wonderful?"  
(NOTE: please refer to my previous blog post about the fact that when everyone else is crying in a sad moment in a movie, I, on the other hand, find myself noticing the set design.)

When it comes to lighting, I guess you can say that I am a huge fan of clean simple lines. The way I see it, if the accessories can make the dress, then the same can be said for the right lighting. It can make a space better than you ever imagined!

  1. Love the circa lights! This is lindsey who spoke to you in the western--Aspire Lighting system by Cooper is the wireless system you might want to look into for lighting schemes and the "ALL OFF" function which is great. The company that installed them for us no longer does it, but my husband has added a few himself so it could be figured out no problem. Let me know if you have any questions or want to see it in action. Ask Kristi or Mindy B. for my contact info. Good Luck!
