A note from Dave: If, like me, you’ve ever wondered how to make the leap from what you’ve got now to what will work better in the way of items to use while decking out your place, this series of posts is for you. With the Starting Point posts, I give my thoughts on where to focus when working to get from where you are now to where you want to go. Today: lighting.

Lights serve so many purposes, from creating ambiance to providing safety, but did you know light fixtures are one of the best ways to tell your design story? Take a look at the many different styles of fixtures below, then take a look around your space to see what yours are saying about your style.

    Hmmm. I would say functional and modern with as few overhead lights as possible for my husband to turn on:)
