I am in the process of renovating-refreshing-revising my home. I can't say exactly which it is. I may end up with a little mini-remodel as well. I have a home that has aged and not in a great vintage way, in more of a suburban boring dull way; splotchy oxidized paint, underpowered and underwhelming light fixtures, worn down furniture.
I didn't know how much work it was going to be and I never predicted the slow pace of it. I am trying to take my time and be very thoughtful in the process. One thing I am excited to change is lighting. My home was designed as a "tuscan Calvin Klein" idea; clean lines, warm colors, and texture added with natural fibers and other details. My home had minimalist lamps and very simple light fixtures. I am trying to pace myself and not throw up a giant crystal chandelier in every room just because I can. I have heard that chandeliers are the jewelry of the home and I believe that is true.
I have also just discovered that Amazon has 1 billion gorgeous pendant lights and Chandeliers. I could have my entire house lit up by tomorrow night if I really wanted.
