Positive Changes, Music and Light

Positive Change is Aglow with Musically Inspired Lighting Design

19061 Uttermost Musicians

Fifty years ago today (January 30, 1964), the late Sam Cooke recorded  “A Change is Gonna Come,” a song that would become the anthem for the Civil Rights Movement.  Wikipedia

Just as the recent Grammy Awards confirm–music is power; and, this power can be the trigger for change.  With a message, with a rhythm, with a beat—music changes our thinking, changes our being and changes our life.

1-2-3- Steps toward Illuminating Changes

1.  First, take a good look at your space:

See what is working for you.  Keep items that are in tune with your unique style, that serve a specific purpose and are in good condition.

Envision the perfect decorative space.  Decide what items may be donated or discarded– -items that are cluttering up your environment and your mind.

2.  Next, research new products and novel designs:

Review lighting facts and bulb options on all new lighting fixtures and products.

Decide what you want to illuminate and the type of light fixture you will need.  Choose the best light source, according to light fixture design and the lighting effects provided by each fixture. Find unique items such as decorative mirrors, whimsical light fixtures and inspirational decor.

3.  Finally, realize the benefits of innovative design changes:

Enjoy the benefits of a beautifully illuminated and stylishly decorated home or office environment.  Finding the right light and creating a picturesque environment involves change, innovation and upkeep.

Lighting professionals are a great source to turn to for help in creating your ideal environment.  American Lighting Association (ALA)-member showrooms will have everything you need to make those illuminating changes to update your home in style.

Keep the music playing and stay in tune with these novel designs…
