Before and After Contest Winner!

Author: Katrina

The time is finally here! It is time to announce the big winner or our customers BEFORE AND AFTER CONTEST. We had some really great entries. I was truly impressed with our customers spaces, displaying such creativity and style! I wanted to show everyone our “winners” space as well as some very impressive “honorable mentions”

Let’s start with the winner. The before pictures of this space were the what I would call conventional, not a lot of excitement going on but a nice space none the less.

What a difference a rug makes. Designer Cindy Schwarz chose our Ming Hand-Knotted Rug for her client’s home. It really warms the room and gives it the color it lacked. The rug complements the lovely neutral furniture and picks up the colors in the artwork above the fireplace perfectly. It is amazing how much larger the space feels once the rug is added. The rug defines the space and grounds the center, giving a since of finish and relaxation.

Then Cindy added our Soho Chandelier over the client’s dining table. A clean, classic look, I love how the chandelier complements the lines in the dining chairs and enlivens the warmth of the wood tones.

Before & After

Nice picks and well done to our winner!!

Now some honorable mentions we just couldn’t keep to ourselves.

Maritza Strand redesigned her bedroom, furniture and all, but in the end found it was still lacking something. By simply changing the ceiling light, the room finally felt like the glamorous redesign she desired. We all hate those “builder boring” flushmount ceiling lights we inherit when we move in. Maritza chose our Organza Shade & Crystal Chandelier to take her room from “generic” to “dazzling”. Yes, you can hang a chandelier close to your ceiling in place of a flushmount!! We have tons of mini chandelier options for those low 8” ceilings.

A stunning kitchen transformation is always fun to see. Mandy Lark accentuated her amazing kitchen redo with our always popular Barcelona Pendant over the kitchen island. The accent lighting complements the space without being overwhelming. These pieces create fun light effects on the walls and ceiling, creating great mood lighting for entertaining. I bet some great parties are to be had in this space. Mandy says, “I feel like I got a whole new room!”

  1. It’s so amazing how the little things make such a huge difference in a room’s design. Just the right light can say “fab” instead of “drab.”
