For many in the US, February and March are the long dark days of winter.  This is a time when lighting is pivotal to one’s quality of day to day life.  The type and style of lighting indoors can pick up our spirit, creating good humor and a sense of peace or if it is poorly applied can do the opposite, putting us in a more dower mood and lessen our ability to focus and problem solve.

During these winter months there is a tendency to stay at home more often rather than brave the weather or darkness outside.  It is more comfortable to visit at home or have friends over for a dinner party than “going out”.  This being so makes it the perfect time of year to make some changes to your interior lighting, creating a more “festive” interior mood to create cheer, entertain or simply enjoy on your own.

Many people look to a “decorative” fixture to dress up their interiors however, it is not only the fixture that needs to be attractive; the light itself should be complimentary.  Light is an intangible element yet can be sculptural, a great piece of art gracing the walls in place of traditional framed work.  A wonderful example is this gorgeous pendant light from Terzani Lighting, the MIZU designed by Nicolas Terzani.

“Inspired by the tranquil and mesmerizing light refractions created by water, MIZU is a customizable pendant light from Terzani.  Like water droplets, no two MIZU are alike, each crystal shape is unique and made meticulously by hand, using only the clearest crystal.  MIZU perfectly emulates water refraction of light, casting amazing patterns around the room reminiscent of flowing water.”
