With winter solstice right around the corner (it falls on December 21st this year), we have short and dark days ahead. Not only is lighting essential but also makes a big impact on a home's overall look and feel. For those of you that want to continue to have light-filled rooms but are wondering how you will add more lighting, don’t fear you can illuminate your space and amplify your style with these favorites I have to share. Most homes don’t have a lot of natural light. If that’s true for your home, then adding floor lamps is a great option for a simple and easy fix. Floor lamps also provide a cozy corner with the perfect light for reading. Ceiling fixtures contribute ambient lighting in a fashionable way that can highlight any design aesthetic. Whether you simply want to add a new look to your dining room, add functional lighting to your kitchen, or add a stunning fixture to your bedroom (similar to the above photo), a ceiling light may be the answer when long winter months drag on. Here are a few of my favorite lighting options that you could add to your home: Top Left: Robert Abbey Jonathan Adler Meurice Nickel Chandelier – Place this in your living room, nook or bedroom and your room will have no problem being fully lit from all of these lovely, tiny globe bulbs. Top Right: Lafitte Clear Glass 10-Inch-W Jamie Young Pendant Chandelier - Mouth-blown clear glass shade has unique texture and style. Middle: Jonathan Adler Havana Polished Nickel White Shade Floor Lamp – If you need a little extra light on a gloomy day add a floor lamp in the corner. This Jonathan Adler lamp features three cocktail shaker-like lights on adjustable arms and has multiple lighting settings. Bottom Left: Double Gourd Slate Grey Ceramic 27-Inch-H Table Lamp – Put a pair together and place them on either side of a couch in your living rom or on your bedside table. The acrylic base gives this gourd lamp a more modern feel. Bottom Right: Delta Lily Robert Abbey Modern Table Lamp   - Would be perfect on a desk or entry table for a clean and contemporary home.
