Whether you are building a new home or updating your current home, light fixtures are an important aspect of interior design that are often left to the last minute.  Light fixtures can define the style of your home and affect the overall ambience of the space, and should not be overlooked.  Replacing outdated light fixtures in your home is an easy way to achieve a whole new look without major construction.  My clients are always excited about the new options I can show them for lighting, whether they are replacing bathroom vanity lights, or adding a fabulous dining room chandelier.

While the lighting portion of your budget might need to be robust, it is well worth the investment.  When it comes to “form meets function,” nothing could be truer of your lighting.  From ambient to task to accent lighting, this critical part of any design project cannot be underestimated.  The world of lighting is a dynamic one with legally mandated changes occurring as we make our planet a friendlier place, making light bulbs look like corkscrews.  The use of energy-efficient LED lighting is becoming more popular and affordable every year.  In addition to the changes in light bulb options, we are constantly adding resources to our repertoire at June DeLugas Interiors of light fixtures to suit any style.

Each year, the month of October brings two events that we look forward to all year:  the High Point Furniture Market, and the Fall Parade of Homes.  The High Point Market allows us to observe the latest trends and new products in the world of home furnishings, accessories, and especially lighting.  The Parade of Homes, sponsored by the Home Builders Association, gives local designers, builders, and contractors the opportunity to showcase their expertise and creativity in residential design.  One of the many reasons to visit the Parade of Homes is to experience and appreciate what’s new in lighting.  Participating in the Parade of Homes as a designer, in conjunction with builder, Don Hamrick, allows me to display exceptional light fixtures and furnishings in a showcase home. 

You don’t want to miss our Parade of Homes entry this year in Buena Vista at 2747 Reynolds Drive to see the focal point… a spectacular artisan chandelier.  It is hand forged of silver and copper with rock crystal accents, which is a perfect  finish application to this home. We look forward to seeing you at the Parade of Homes October 12-13 and 19-20.  For more information, visit www.hbaws.net/parade.html.
