We recently got a great tip, that's both smart and stylish, from Nora, in Los Angeles.
Fluorescent fixtures are commonly built into kitchens and bathrooms because they're incredibly energy-efficient and emit comfortable, ambient light.
However, fluorescent lights usually don't offer much in terms in of style and expression.
Nora removed her fluorescent fixtures and panels, painted the recessed area a contrasting color, and then sank a beautiful semi-flushmount fixture into the space. Voila!
She chose the Flower Sparkle Ceiling Light, and the results are spectacular. Thank you Nora for sending in the photo! Click here to see the pics.

Its a great idea, choosing recessed area a contrasting color, and then sank a beautiful semi-flushmount fixture.
