I used to be drawn only to darker wood, now it seems the trend is moving, yet again, to lighter softer woods. I love the mix in these two pictures of rustic elements with the clean modern lines, it's very refreshing. I like how the rooms have added dimension by using different shades of wood, it helps draw the eye around the space. Even though these rooms feel very minimal there is enough going on that you are drawn to different elements throughout the space. I of course can not get enough of crystal chandeliers, this proves once again that any space can be dressed up and look better with some added glamour, and it doesn't distract too much from the stillness of the space.

TCP Seminar

TCP Lighting hosted a lighting seminar here is Salt Lake on Tuesday, I had the pleasure of attending at the Grand America. TCP is one of the worlds leading manufactures of energy efficient lighting. TCP is working hard to make CFL, LED and other types of energy efficient lighting a perfect light source for our homes and offices. We have carried TCP bulbs in our store for years and have always had good feedback on their product. However, I am really excited for some of the newer products we learned about.

TCP's Compact Fluorescent bulbs or CFL have one of the best dimming options around. I know because I watched multiple experiments with other companies CFL bulbs; having different bulbs right next to each other and seeing how the TCP bulbs performs up to other brands was a great way to see how well these bulbs really do dim. Right now making a CFL dim lower than 20% is really hard to do, but TCP has managed to make a CFL that will dim all the way to 3%. They call this their TRU DIM and it will be available this fall.

We watched the other experiments where TCP's CFL bulbs warm up faster than the other brands of CFL bulbs. TCP changed their bulb's design a little so their bulbs can warm up and light up a whole lot faster now than they did before.

TCP is also working hard on LED bulbs, they have 22 new LED bulbs hitting the market. They have a deco line of great looking deco bulbs, and even more directional spot and flood bulbs. Almost all of which work well outdoors in damp location and inside your home as well.

The other new product TCP has made is a wireless controlling system for CFL's, it will have photocells and motion sensor options as well as dimming options. It will be available for both residential and commercial in the 4th quarter of 2010.

The Bonn At Home In Salt Lake

Photo By Gary Felt

This monorail track system is in a gorgeous home in Holiday, Utah. the product is from LBL Lighting, the clear pendant is called the Bonn it's a transparent glass cone with a hand-etched band around the center. The picture does not show the slope of the ceiling very well, but there is a severe sloped ceiling and the track was a perfect alternative to a standard chandelier here. It not only gives a unique and modern look over the table but the track is very functional in this area. The standoffs are all different heights so the track can be hung level with the table and then the pendants were staggered over the table at different heights to add dimension. Because the pendants are hung from end to end it gives an even lighting over the entire table making it a great place to do task work, and it is on a dimmer so any light intensity/mood you desire can be achieved.
I love how versatile track lighting is, LBL has so many great pendants available as well as other products. You can create your own eye-catching, one of a kind fixture with any number of LBL products.

There are so many ways to decorate your patio or outdoor spaces where you will party all summer. A newer trend in outdoor design is fans and chandeliers. Who said you can't bring that glam to the back yard? Try finding a chandelier to brighten up the evenings, you can stay and party longer with good lighting.
