Flush mount and semi flush mount light fixtures have come a  long way and there are many new style. The trend for lighting right now is to have clear glass and let the bulb show through. The Edison bulb which shows the filament is very popular and the industrial look is hotter than ever.

Let's Paint

As I have always said there is nothing more transformative in a room than paint. Paint is the best way to change a space whether it is inside or outside. Even small thing s like painting the ceilings a brighter flat white or changing the trim to semi gloss can really make your home look better and often even make it look new. The trend today is to use greys, grages, or off whites on the walls in a matte finish paint. Paint the ceilings super white flat paint and paint the trim super white semi gloss. For more information on this topic tune into Modern Design tomorrow live from 1-3 pm E.S.T.
