Lighting is one of the most important elements of design... in fact, it might be the most important. Not only is the pendant, sconce or lamp a point of interest, it also sets a mood. Think of lighting as functional art and if it had a fashion world equivalent, it would be the designer handbag or the perfect shoe because it ties the whole look together. —Deeyn
Tip 01 — Dimmers, dimmers, dimmers.
Before even discussing the actual light source, invest in wiring for dimmers. Unless you need light to thread a needle in the dark, there is no need for bright overhead lighting.
Tip 02 — Layer in the living room.
This is where you probably spend a good amount of your time. Having a combination of lights allows you to change the space for different purposes. Overhead recessed lighting if you're working on a project, a floor lamp if you're reading a book, and a low-lit table lamp if you're winding down and watching a movie. And a candle or two is always a nice touch.
Tip 03 — How do you use the room?
Think about the function of the room and the mood you're trying to set. Are you reading? Working at a desk? Entertaining guests? A large pendant or chandelier is best for a dining room. In the bedroom, you'll want a reading light by the bed and an overhead light for dressing. (Don't forget the dimmer, though!)
And don't forget, you can custom order hundreds of lights through Nannie Inez. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 512.428.6639 to learn more or place a custom order.

Alicia Keys — A Take Away Show in Paris
Two things happening here that have us obsessed. 1) Could you imagine seeing Alicia Keys preforming with no mic and no speaker just a few feet in front of you? I would die. 2) What is it about the lighting in Paris that is so romantic. This venue is so identifiably French with it's soft, diffused lighting in golden hues. Take me here now! —Deeyn

On a recent inspiration trip to the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth I was reminded of the congruity between art and design. Last week, I came across Henrik's beautiful work and his use of color and angular shapes reminded me of a handful of new textiles and décor arrivals. Art & design are never too far apart, and it's always a treat to find similarities between the two.

As someone with admitted wanderlust, in 2016 I was a homebody and enjoyed every minute of it. Lonzo and I entertained friends and fell even more in love with our neighborhood, indulging in daily coffees at Mañana and nightcaps at June's.

Castor oil has an increased ability to penetrate the skin and carry nutrients from all of the other oils and butters into the body. Avocado oil is rich in vitamins A, B and E, proteins and amino acids. It increases water-soluble collagen content in the middle layer of the skin. Avocado oil helps to prevent age spots while regenerating tissues and protecting the barrier functions of the skin.
Lavandin essential oil is an antidepressant, antibiotic and sedative and detoxifier that promotes healing and prevents scarring. It stimulates the immune system and contributes to the healing process.
The palm oil we used is certified by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil. This is important because the unsustainable production of palm oil destroys habitats that contain endangered species.
