Painted Ceilings

 

Painted ceilings have this similar feel of a negative of a photograph. It's flipped from colorful walls and white celings to white/light walls and colorful ceilings. It's startling in a delightful way. 

Colored ceilings are great for creating the illusion of there being more architectural detail, dimension and light than there actually is in a space.

Light By Design's Guide to Finding the Perfect Lighting for Your Space

A more accurate, fitting play off of the well-known expression, “Let there be light!” in our case, would read, “Let there be wonderful, warm, aesthetically pleasing, stylish light that reflects my personal taste and lifestyle!”

And guess what? It doesn’t have to cost a fortune. With lighting reflecting fashion’s insatiable taste for the newest, hottest, most desirable trends, this means mass manufacturers have to keep up by constantly bringing new designs to the table at a cost-effective price. Not that there’s not room for the high-end, tailor made lighting, because just as fashion has its coveted couture, so too does lighting.

Translation? Consumers win. There is now something for every apartment dweller with limited space, Hill Country estate owner with decadent taste, and penny pincher in any economic situation with not a penny to waste.

So how does one go about finding the perfect light for their space?

Slocum Street Style 2012 Another Success

Slocum Street Style 2012 was once again a great success. Yesterday evening, Slocum Street brimmed with design enthusiasts and curious others strolling along leisurely from showroom to showroom in the twilight of the evening. Each showroom was full of the bustle of lively conversation.

The spread at McGannon Showrooms

They helped soothe the growl of people’s stomachs by serving light bites and drinks. Also featured in each showroom were individual raffle prizes for people in attendance. For those with bigger appetites, there were food trucks located on a few street corners filled with the smells of mouth-watering food.

The Kitchen Source had chefs from Subzero whip up some scrumptious tex mex finger foods for guests.
