Lighting and Wow Factors

When I see a room that's a jawdropper- a space that stops me in my tracks, it's usually the lighting that is the culprit. A huge, exaggerated light fixture can bring a space to the next level. I love seeing a room with large pieces- it always makes the space feel grand. Whether it's an oversized couch, a huge round dining table, or a giant chandelier- bigger is definitely better!  Proper use of scale can make a small space feel larger and a beautiful room stand out! When there are so many little pieces of furniture, lighting and accessories scattered around the room, the space feels cluttered and small. Here are some amazing rooms that are perfect in scale! Talk about jawdropping lighting!
