You Light up my Life

Lighting is probably the single most important element to any space. A room can be gorgeous, but if you cant see it, you have wasted your time. Lighting has changed significantly in the past few years and there are so many options now. It is daunting. Florescent bulbs used to be terrible. Now they are good. There are just so many types of bulbs now. Bruce Brodack of Flemington Fan and Light will help us break it all down on this week's Modern Design. Go to and click on Modern Design. Tune in Live this Wednesday at 2:00 pm or listen on the podcast.

In a world that constantly asks me to simplify and reduce clutter, the topic today is collections for the home. I have collected cabbage ware for many years now and have built quite a collections for my kitchen. I keep select pieces on my sideboard and love to serve with them when I have company. When occasions come up people will bring me pieces to add to my collection. When I am out shopping or on vacation, I seek out these items when shopping. It is like a treasure hunt. Clean lines are in, but collecting something you like can very much coincide with that look. You just need to group your collection together and keep it to one area. Use your collection as a focal point in a simple space. You will be glad you did.
