Grandmother’s House

One of the great things about walking through my grandmother’s house is looking at all the beautiful pieces of furniture that she has collected over the years. Anywhere from old sofas, with the floral design, to an old wrought iron wine rack that she purchased from a garage sale before I was even born. She’s a very eclectic person. You can tell just by all the old picture frames hanging on her walls. She has a style like no other.

My favorite pieces in the house, I have to say, would be the Tiffany style floor lamps. She has one in every room. The lamps set such an ambiance that it is captivating. The colors are brilliant and still vibrant to this day. She told me that she got them passed down to her from her grandmother and that they would be passed to me one day. I am truly honored to have such magnificent lamps some day in my home to show my future grandchildren.

Lighting a Home Office

When it comes to lighting a home office, there are three different types of light: ambient lighting, task lighting, and accent lighting. Ambient lighting provides general light, such as from wall sconces or overhead lighting. Task lighting is meant to illuminate a specific space, such as a desk with a small desk or table lamp.

Accent lighting, though functional, is usually meant for decorative purposes. For instance, Tiffany floor lamps can be used as artistic focal points in a home office. Choose accent lighting carefully, particularly if you expect clients to visit your home office. A quality accent lamp can enhance the overall look of your office and give off an air of professionalism and good taste.
