Week 6 and talk about Light Therapy is hands down, my favorite week of the Cure process. Great lighting showcases all of your hard work and transforms a drab space to a real thing of beauty. It can be difficult to break out of the typical lighting mold of a single harsh overhead light with a sidekick lamp near by. This set up rarely works out and this week, we'd like to feature fabulous lighting ideas we've seen so far in our Spring Cure Flickr Pool!

This lovely arched floor lamp works great over the seating area in this space and you can also spy the large fixture over the table behind it. Layered lighting is the key to any great space!

Perfect Pendants
First Row, Left To Right
thefarmersdaughter: has two pendants in the dining room as well as a window close by. When it comes to lighting, the more the merrier as long as it isn't shining directly in your eye!
adriantwright: has installed these old school pendants above different work areas in the kitchen. Individually they can feel a little small, but when there's several in the room, they make for a great look!
Steph 123: has a trio of pendants hanging about the dining room table. We love the extra bright space and we're pretty sure the cat enjoys them too!
cloudyweathergirl: found this pretty pendant down under and did some diy to make it as glamorous as it could be. The dimmer is all the way down, just imagine when it's turned up! How lovely!
decent_mammal: has a low hung globe pendant over the table. Even though this might not seem like quite enough light, those window fill in the extra oompf needed!

Lovely Lamps
Second Row, Left To Right
Kathorden: has a lamp in the entryway instead of relying on a single overhead pendant. It gives a touch of warmth and makes the space inviting instead of harsh.
thefarmersdaughter: has a great mid-century lighting find and you can believe that lamp only ran her $3?!
Joymich: has dualing bedside lamps that create a wonderful glow from top to bottom and don't leave you staring at the lightbulb when you're curled up in bed.
at143tv: has a tall lamp that balances out the large print sitting next to it. Anything smaller would have felt out of scale and we think it's just the right size for the space!
k2yhe: has a unique lamp behind the sofa. It's perfect for reading and won't glare in your eye when relaxing and reading a book or two.
