Chip and Joanna Gaines have won the hearts and attention of people all across the US. Their passion and love for their crafts and family is refreshing and inspiring – to DIY-ers, designers and contractors, moms and dads, millenials and boomers, and everyone in between. Their charm is universally appealing.
Part of the Gaines’ charm is the natural talents showcased in their show on HGTV, Fixer Upper. Did you know Chip and Joanna are both self trained in their respective crafts? I’m continually drawn to Joanna’s ability to vary her farmhouse style of design to apply to so many different client preferences: modern, rustic, beach, etc. If you watch Fixer Upper, you know Joanna spends time thoughtfully planning, designing with fellow craftsmen, and hunting through antique stores to build or find furniture and decor that flaunts the client’s style preferences.
And, as a lighting enthusiast, I always take the time to appreciate her lighting choices.
Each fixture Joanna chooses for a home makes a statement – chandeliers, pendants, lamps, etc. For this blog I am going to zero in on lamps because they often don’t get the credit they deserve. Lamps are often an afterthought, used to add task lighting or decoration. While this flexibility is part of the beauty of lamps, I’d encourage you not to underestimate the power of lamps in lighting and design.
