Do you have friends and family visiting this year for the holidays? Now is a great time to start thinking about little updates you can make around the house that will create a warm welcome. Every year we like to introduce a Guest Prep Series with easy and affordable ideas for updating your home. The changes benefit you all year long, but upcoming guests are sometimes the perfect motivation to work on updating spaces now. Today, we are thinking about lighting. The jewels of any room, good lighting has mega impact in refreshing a space. And with the shorter days and stormier skies of fall and winter, great interior lighting becomes even more important. Take a look at five trending lighting updates that will add warmth and function to your home.
