Oh, destiny… They say that it’s something that has already been decided for you, so no matter what direction you go in, your life will end up the same way if that is what was meant to be. But don’t be afraid to admit that you beg to differ. We, as humans, hold so much power in our hands, and the incredible things that we are doing on a daily basis proves that.

Our loft is full to bursting, we’ve taken over the teenagers storage…

Could not love a quote more.  I am obsessed with lighting in our home. Each room has a different need, a different reason for lighting and sometimes, it has multiple needs. Apart from the obvious, original use of lighting, way back when it was first invented, for me, how we light our space creates different moods, different feelings, and it’s way more complicated than “put the big light on will ya……” The way we use light in our home is important.
