is everything. It can make or break a photograph, completely update a room or change the perspective on nearly anything. Ryan and I have been in our new home for 6 months now (say what!?!?!) and I just realized that I have yet to share any details about it. 

The house we purchased was built in 1958 and has all the charm we adore… gorgeous built-ins, high baseboards, decorative accents and cove ceilings. Lucky for us, the seller kept all these awesome details but flipped the interior to include all the modern amenities of a new home. Essentially we have a brand new house within the footprint and exterior walls of the original structure. It has been awesome bringing in our belongings while also purchasing some new pieces to make this place feel like ‘us’. However, one thing the seller did not put as much detail into was the lighting.

From the get-go, we knew that lighting would be a top priority after moving in. We had not even finished unpacking and I was already surfing the interwebs, scrolling pinterest and stopping into shops around town looking for inspiration. Now, don’t get me wrong, the light fixtures in the house were not terrible or even dated, they just screamed ‘big box store’ and ‘not our style’. Over the past several months, we have been working our way through the house, updating many of the light fixtures to not only improve the rooms visually, but to also install options which would provide better lighting overall.

The updated lighting has made a vast improvement and we are both quite happy with the results. We are still working on plans for our 2 bathrooms which I will share inspiration boards for in tomorrow’s post. Come back here tomorrow to see where we are at and maybe even weigh in on what lighting options you like best.

    Hi there would you mind letting me know which web host you’re using?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different internet browsers and I must say this
    blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you suggest a
    good internet hosting provider at a fair price?

    Kudos, I appreciate it!

    I would like to consider the ability of saying thanks to
    you for your professional advice I have usually
    enjoyed going to your site. We’re looking forward to the actual commencement of my school
    research and the entire planning would never have been complete without
    visiting your website. If I could be of any assistance
    to others, I would be ready to help by what I have learned from here.
