The Importance of Lighting in Your Dressing Area

The Importance of Lighting in Your Dressing Area

If you’re a fashionista, you deserve the perfect dressing room to inspire all of your fabulous outfits. When it comes to establishing a place to strut your runway walk, try on different color combinations, and decipher the perfect way to accessorize, we at Modernize understand the importance of quality lighting. Boost your morale, body image, and outfit creativity with these simple tips.   via About Home Boost Your Body Image Have you ever tried on a knock-out dress at your favorite store, only to come out of the dressing room disappointed, and with a negative self-image? You’re not alone. Poor lighting can create unflattering shadows on the body, highlight areas you wouldn’t normally emphasize, and overall turn your happy mood into a downer. You should be able to rock your outfits and feel confident as you put your wardrobe together, so take matters into your own hands. Create your at-home dressing area with a full-length mirror system. We recommend a three-way mirror, so you can check out your look from all angles. This open mirror display reflects light in the best way possible. When it comes to accessorizing your dressing room and playing up your figure, we recommend overhead lighting from Lightopia. Channel some glamourous ritz with an exquisite chandelier, like the Murano Leaf Chandelier, which will have you feeling like Hollywood royalty. Or, stick to the essentials with flattering overhead ceiling lights, wall sconces and flush mounts.     via The Decorista Focus Lighting for Detailed Tasks Incorporating a vanity into your dressing room is a great way to try new makeup and jewelry combinations and coordinate with...

Altus

The Altus by Cerno Designed by Nick Sheridan   “High, deep, noble and profound” hence its namesake ALTUS ! But when I look at this new floor lamp by Cerno, I think 1960’s MAD MEN, Madison Avenue ad agency Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce! I can just see it in Don Drapers office! Hip, fun and lends itself well to the post Modern movement, as well as beach modern luxury. No suprise due to the fact the Cerno Groups, inivative minds and founders Nick Sheridan, Dan Wacholder and Bret Englander, are Laguna Beach Natives.   Altus features boast – Three Metal Finishes: Brushed Brass, Distressed Brass, and Oiled Bronze; Two Wood Finishes: Oiled Walnut and Dark Stained Walnut and Three Shade Options: White Linen, Black and Burlap.Dimensions – 79.5” H – 22” shade (2019mm x 559mm) Walnut, brass, linen shade Product weight – 45 lbs Universal medium base E26 socket Includes LED A19 bulb Energy efficient LED light source Light output – 800 lumens Light color – 2700° K See more of the Altus    ...

Gorgeous Gravey Lighting

The Gravey Wall Sconce by Koncept While wondering thru the Dwell Show in los Angeles on Friday May 29th This brilliant wall sconce caught my eye, it was compact yet packed a punch! It’s called Gravey and just let me tell you how “yummy” it is, It has the latest edge it technology meaning the light shines not only out but around the edges. It has a soft warm evenly distributed glow with a swivel head that shines the perfect light where needed. Turning gravey on and off is as simple as the fixture itself, just tap the LED underside and you’re done, what about dimming? Touch the LED underside and hold for that perfect level of light desired. Gravey comes in walnut, maple or white oak and is encased in aluminum. It’s Simple, It’s Elegant, and It’s Functional… I love “Gravey”!   See more about the Gravey at Koncept...

This is the Biennial International Lighting exhibition dedicated to showing the latest in decorative and architectural lighting fixtures from industry leaders as well as smaller artists introducing their work.

The Salone started in 1964 and is the global benchmark for the home furnishings sector. Every spring design acolytes from around the world feast on introductions of lighting, furniture and home accessories. The fair is a temperature gauge for the worldwide trends in design….what’s hot and what’s not can be fickle and honest, either you’re in or you’re out. Over the years the Salone, which is held at the 2 million square foot Rho Fiera Milano trade center, has flourished throughout the city of Milan into the cultural hotspots like the Brera district, Zona Tortuna, Via Savona, and the plush green courtyard’s of Spazio Rossana Orlandi.
