Winter is on the verge of loving and leaving us, and it’s about time we get ready with the spring-summer decor enthusiasm. While there will be a couple of decor changes in the months to come, do you feel like the long hours of daylight might overshadow your favorite lamps? As much as we want to dismiss this thought, it’s true that most lamps, when not in use, disappear into the background of our home. As our lighting needs decrease, their impact on our rooms as elements of decor also become questionable.
But, have you considered this?
If you buy lamps and lighting fixtures that can elevate your decor irrespective of being on or off, could this change the challenge into an opportunity instead?
