Melissa joins us from her ?favorite space in the world? ? her beautifully lit bedroom ? to talk us through some of her foundational practices, including her belief in the power of lighting. We asked Melissa the first thing she?d do if she walked into a blank-box apartment with tired carpet and white walls ? you?ll want to make note of her highly specific recommendations before you next restock your lightbulbs: ?When you think about decorating, lighting may not be the [design element] that first comes to mind, but it really dictates the mood experience,? she says. ?Think about a time when you were at the DMV versus in a nice restaurant ? the lighting is very distinct and that changes how you experience these spaces drastically. I personally don’t like overhead lighting very much; I like my lighting coming from different sources, on multiple levels, and preferably all the lighting in a room should be at a warm color temperature ? I like 2,700K, which is a warm glow. Everything looks a little better ? and people are prettier!? Photo: Nicole Franzen
