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!
