Add Bling to Your Home

Posted on April 17, 2013 by Ed Lecciones | 0 comments

Spring is the season for bright lights and bright colors. To better appreciate the beautiful things around you, you need more light. Sure, the typical lamps and pendants should be good enough, but that’s only for illumination.

What about style? Why not get lighting pieces that matches the brightness of spring? This Spring BLING is in and the trend is fixtures with crystal accents that take the light and amplify and intensify it to really turn your home into a showplace.

One collection that stands out is the Glimmer Collection. True to its name, the Glimmer Collection features flush mounts, pendants and chandeliers that are all covered with clear Beveled Crystal beads. It is made up of ring frames that are crafted and finished in Polished Silver or Bronze. Each of the crystals is installed one at a time by hand, creating a lighting masterpiece that is illuminated by Xenon lamps.This is indeed not something that you can easily get anywhere.

Because of their elegance and sophistication, these pieces will do a good job of transforming the appearance of your room. Crystal beads possess light illuminating property that will literally brighten up any room, scattering light to even the darkest corners of your room. Of course, it cannot be denied that these lights are just plain attention-grabbers. Put them in one place and your guests’ eyes will zero in on them. Then you can start fishing for compliments. It’s as easy as that.

You can install these pieces anywhere that you like. Put one in your living room and make it the first thing that your guests see; line a few of them over your kitchen counter to help you prepare food; or hang one in your bedroom to create that dramatic effect. You can even put one in your patio for your night soirees. The things that you can do with these gorgeous lighting pieces are just endless!

So along with shorts, flowy dresses, and bikes, you might want to add Glimmer lights in your list of spring must-haves. Give your home the update that it needs to season with the modern look and illumination of the Glimmer Collection.

Practice What You Pin: DIY Lampshade

Blog - Practice What You Pin: DIY Lampshade

Practice What You Pin. As part of this ideology, LampsUSA will be handcrafting DIY lampshades, DIY table lamps, and other DIY lamps.

LampsUSA is a company that is highly active in the Pinterest community. The whole staff loves seeing the innovative and creative lighting ideas/concepts conjured up all over the world. 

In a sort of arts and crafts alchemy, Pinterest users have brought to light great repurposing, hacking, and reshaping ideas that have transformed the way the LampsUSA creative team thinks about the company’s products.

The spirit of DIY lamps and DIY lampshades is especially cool.

It’s because of this creative spark that the team has decided to roll up its sleeves and do its best to practice what they pin.

Round One – DIY Lamp Shade Redecoration

LampsUSA offers a colorful array of discount lamp shades for sale. This is not about those shades.

The LampsUSA staff grabbed a handful of economy shades that were simple in both color and shape.

The team used a sharpie and doodled a quick contour map (not to scale) to take advantage of the vintage map paper aesthetics already in place.

The team used a crafter's knife to cut out cloud shapes, then used spray paint to paint shade from black to midnight blue. Using a can of spray on adhesive, the team applied some parchment paper to create translucent white clouds.

Starting with some masking tape, the team created a fun pattern on the shade

For this project, the team created a make-shift paint booth and wore proper protection of course.

Paint issues came up due to lack of expertise, so the team changed gears on the fly and added in some acrylics to cover up the runny spray paint.

So-so results aesthetically speaking – best result was the fun in creating it.
