Bathroom Lighting That Wows: Replacing Over-Vanity Lights With Sconces

When you think of bathroom lighting, you probably imagine one thing: a bar of lights above the vanity.

Ditch The Chandelier: Better Dining Room Lighting For An Open Floorplan

Whether you’re typically a social butterfly or a bit of a homebody, chances are you spent a whole lot more of 2020 at home than you ever have before.

Introducing Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2021: Ultimate Gray…And Illuminating

Pantone’s color of the year picks are always a little symbolic. Usually, it’s a color that feels significant – one that will influence the design and fashion industries, and often has subtle political undercurrents.
