Color is one of the best ways to change a space and wow did it help ours!  Selecting color can be a bit tricky- one of the best tips is to choose colors that all have the same value.  The reason I like YOLO Colorhouse so much is that all of the colors flow with each other so you can rest assured the end result will look good.   www.yolocolorhouse.com

The other fun element is the use of lights to cast reflections and images on the surrounding walls.  Both of these fixtures in particular do a fantastic job at adding dazzling effects to the walls.

 

Any fixture that can create this amazing display of light gets me every time. This fixture is from ET2 one of my favorite lighting companies

Basements are normally places people don’t want to visit.  But in this house is added almost 1,000/sf of usable space so making the entrance inviting was key.  Hanging the fixture and using a cheerful color lure you into the new space.  We also used the same quality finishes in the basement so you don’t feel like you are going to, what is commonly, a lesser used area.
