While we love traditional light fixtures, we’ve found Pinterest to be a great source of ideas for new and modern fixtures. We’ve also seen a few DIY projects on there that have sparked some custom projects we’ve produced. While some of the DIY projects on there seem a little troublesome for the average homeowner, it can be a good source of ideas for creating custom light fixtures for your home. Get on there, check out what people are doing, then let the experts (us) help you out! We have a full service repair and custom lighting shops in our stores in Bellevue and Seattle and we’re prepared to help your lighting dreams come to life!

We’ve been busy over here at Harold’s Lighting! Our lighting stores in Seattle and Bellevue are constantly receiving new light fixtures for our showrooms and we love seeing the coolest fixtures come through our doors. We also update our online store with all of our products. Be sure to follow us on social media (including Pinterest) to stay up to date with the latest deals and products coming from our lighting store in Seattle and Bellevue.

Fall is here! Easy tips to make your home feel more like Autumn!

The end of September marks the birth of Fall for 2017. A new season is a new opportunity to switch things up around your home. Below are a few tips to make your home feel more warm and ready for winter.

Change up the lighting.

Fall weather, especially in the Pacific North West, is naturally darker. You may need to consider adding more light to rooms that you frequently use. The easiest way to do this by adding a table lamp or floor lamp. Harold’s Lighting has lamps of all sizes, shapes, colors and styles to suit any décor.

Scent

Memories of fall comes with many delicious smells. Create an autumn wonderland in your home simply by making your home smell like fall. Pumpkin Spice, Cinnamon, Clove, Orange Spice, and Gingerbread are all classic smelling fall flavors. You can permeate your space with these amazingly warm and inviting smells by using essential oils, candles, sprays or with baking.

Pillows and Blankets

Adding new throw blankets to your living room couches or pillows help create a more inviting and comfortable atmosphere. Makes me want to settle in with a book just thinking about it!

Fall is fun! It’s the birth of the holiday season for the year and celebrating the changing of the seasons is easy to do around your home.

Happy Thanksgiving From Harold’s Lighting

All of us from Harold’s Lighting wish you a very happy Thanksgiving! We hope you’re able to enjoy time with family and friends and take time to think about what you’re grateful for.

If you’re hosting the party this year, don’t forget about your dining room lighting options! If you rarely use your dimmer, now is the time to use it! Depending on how large the space is, use layers of lighting styles to achieve a warm and inviting atmosphere. Now is not the time to blast your guests with tons of light. Set your fixtures to provide enough light for you to safely serve and eat food, but not much more. Lower levels of light are typically more flattering and create a warmer and cozy feel.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

“Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I’ll try again tomorrow” – Mary Anne Radmacher

According to the experts at NationalBreastCancer.org, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. This disease has, in some way or another, effected everyone in the United States. No one should face breast cancer alone, and that is the inspiration behind Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The goal of spotlighting this issue in October is to shed light on the disease and raise awareness.

NationalBreastCancer.org has laid out a few ways you can help:

Harold’s Lighting wants to support bringing more attention to Breast Cancer. Early detection is important, and can even help increase the chances of survival. We encourage everyone to get a yearly mamogram (at the least) and to live healthily.
