sY0iXn0c7vCkYavZ4C14JQ-smallMy grandmother’s house always had the most interesting things both in the way she decorated and the many strange items I would find as I explored. She always had an affinity for anything that seemed to be garden-inspired, where it was the use of purple and green that popped on a lampshade or the floral print on her apron.

One of my favorite things she had in her house was the sunflower decorated Tiffany hanging lamps above the kitchen table. The colors always looked really pretty when the light was on, and the sunflower looked similar to the flowers on her apron. There was something about the light fixture that made the kitchen feel like home.

Express Yourself with a Tiffany Pendant Light

MD-36369When decorating a new home, it can get too overwhelming to focus on the small details that make a house a home, and express the style of an owner. The goal becomes more along the lines of getting everything together in one color scheme and picking out the small things later on. While there is nothing wrong with this approach, there are a few things you can purchase without going crazy.

Throw pillows are an easy accent to throw on a couch and express your individuality. There are tons of choices, but most stores have them arranged by color, making them easy to get through. Another small choice is adding light fixtures. A Tiffany pendant light can have different designs and beautiful colors to match any room décor and stick to the style of any home owner.

Tiffany Style Pendant Lights For The Redecorated Living Room

P14155686I decided recently that the living room was in some serious need of redecoration if I was going to start entertaining guests. I’ve been wanting to start having dinner parties and wine tastings and things like that for quite some time but I wanted to make certain that my home was in the best possible condition before I started trying to host these sorts of parties.

The first thing that I did was replace all the furniture and make it so the furniture in the living room would open the room up a bit more. I figured that this would be perfect for hosting parties. I also repainted the walls and got the carpets professionally cleaned. I finished up the redecorating by replacing all of the lighting in the room with Tiffany style pendant lights.

Tiffany Hanging Lamps Light The Party

Tiffany-Hanging-LampA friend of mine recently threw a housewarming wine and cheese tasting party at his new home. I’d never had a chance to see his new place before and I was surprised as to how tastefully it was decorated. He told me that he had hired someone to decorate his home for him and that he was really happy with how everything had ended up turning out.

The furniture in his house all matched very well together and there was a certain style about the home that I thought looked very nice; it didn’t surprise me that he had someone professional put everything together for him, because my friend’s not exactly someone who knows how to pick these kinds of items out himself. The house was well-lit with Tiffany hanging lamps.

Gift Exchange

There’s nothing that frustrates me more than trying to find the perfect birthday gift for someone.  Some people are harder to shop for than others.  My dad, for example, wants nothing but Blu-ray movies to add to his collection.  He isn’t picky about which ones, so long as they’re Blu-ray.  My mother is another story.

My mother doesn’t like to make wish lists or leave any clues as to what she would like for her birthday or for Christmas.  She has very specific taste and she usually returns gifts if they aren’t the right color or the right size.  She exchanged they Tiffany hanging pendant light my sister and I got her for her birthday last year because it clashed with the couches in the living room.  I’m thinking of just getting her a gift card this year to make things easier for everyone.

Lighting Statement Piece

Lately I’ve become a big fan of the show HGTV Design Star. I find the assortment of interior designers, furniture makers, artists, set designers, and architects they find to compete on the show utterly fascinating. Each contestant has their own point of view and style aesthetic that has opened my eyes to design ideas I’d never considered.

For instance, in a challenge where they had to transform a blank room with minimal furnishings, one designer chose to make light a focal point. He hobbled together about 15 clear light bulbs and hung them in such a way that they cast interesting shadows on the wall. I was so inspired that I moved my Tiffany hanging pendant light to the edge of the room so it now shines along a blank wall, thus letting the exquisite colors pop even more in contrast.

Creative Chandelier

When it comes to interior decorating the only rule is: there are no rules. I firmly believe that whatever colors, patterns, and fabrics make you happy, then that is what should be used. Don’t worry what other people think; they don’t have to live in your home.

For instance, conventional rules state that a dining table should have one elegant chandelier. If you take a peek at my dining room, however, you’ll notice that I have not one chandelier, but three. I took three Tiffany hanging lamps and hung them at different heights for a unique look that shows off the lamps’ colors. I think that my choice in lighting reflects my eclectic tastes perfectly.

Mark Twain House

Of all the things to see and do in New England, one of my favorite activities is visiting the Mark twain House and Museum. Mark Twain and his wife lived in the home they had built from 1874 to 1891. After the death of their daughter, as well as some financial troubles, the Twain family sold the home and moved into a new home in Redding, CT where Twain died in 1910.

Since the house was sold it went from a private residence to a school to coal storage facility to a subdivision. Finally, a group of Hartford residents bought the property and had it restored. Now it is a National Historic Landmark restored to the glory of the period when the Twains called it home. It includes incredible examples of art and architecture, including Tiffany hanging lamps – after all, Louis Comfort Tiffany himself was commissioned by Twain to complete the interior decorating in 1881.

Redecorating with Tiffany Lamps

Lately, I’ve been feeling like my home needs a little bit of redecoration; sometimes, if it’s been too long without me doing much with my home, I get a bit antsy and feel the need to do something new and interesting. Lately, I’ve been getting really into Tiffany lamps, so I started wondering if there was a good way to integrate those into my household.

Once I officially landed on adding some Tiffany style products to my house, I decided that some Tiffany style hanging lamps would be a great way to spice the place up. I really like them because in the area that I’ve place them, they can be seen as soon as you enter my home. They really liven up the place!

No One Wants To Read In The Dark

Sometimes overhead lighting is necessary. I have a very small apartment with only one small window. It gets really dark during the winter. Reading is my favorite past time, but my eyes get strained when I try to read in my dimly-lit apartment. My main sources of light were a small kitchen-ceiling lamp and floor lamp.

I realized that in order to indulge in my reading, I would have to get some tiffany style hanging  lamps. I wouldn’t usually choose overhead lights, but it turned out they worked really well to brighten up my apartment.  It was a comfort to know that I could read any time I wanted.
