Lighting has long been one of my favorite parts of any design project, but it can also be one of the most difficult and time consuming part of the process. First off, lighting really comes in bulk. In some of my larger projects, I have upwards of 100 fixtures! Wattage, placement, dimensions, shades….so much to think about when choosing just the right lighting schemes.
When I was blogging about the 2010 San Francisco Elle Decor Showhouse, I realized that the various designers had one common lighting theme: Urban Electric. I often use UE myself, for their diverse collection of fixtures can appeal to a broad range of clients’ tastes. I really admired the pieces used in the showhouse, but I wanted to also share with you some of my personal favorites. Enjoy!
