Trending: Etsy Treasures – Light it up!

Ever walk into a room that was too dim, or worse yet, too glaring? And it doesn’t matter what else is going on in there, you’re just... uneasy? I know I have. There’s little more important to me in a room than good lighting. It makes the space feel inviting and comfortable. A place you want to be. And that’s the goal, right :)?

So I went on a little treasure hunt through Etsy, looking for fixtures that would likely offer good light (with the right bulb – see link below), and look good while doing it. Here’s what I found!

And it’s not just the fixture that matters, it’s the light bulb as well. Here’s a great link from npr.com for learning more about the differences between bulbs. Great resource!
