Be Inspired No. 78 - The Edison Bulb

Never have I been more inspired by a product of function than with the Edison light bulb. Thomas Edison received his patent for his incandescent light bulb in 1880. It truly is an art form. 

The selection of lighting can make or break a room design. Make it a point to consult with a professional designer, you will prevent costly mistakes. A refined urban or modern farmhouse home is so fitting for fixtures with Edison bulbs.

Is it strange that these looks remind of fresh, crisp, line-dried laundry on a sunny day? Less is truly more with lighting that adorns the Edison bulb.

Just as you wouldn't have the same art subjects hanging throughout your home, neither should you over do this look. After all "variety is the spice of life."

My preference for the Edison-like look is the LED version which burns 5 watts rather than 45 like the incandescent version and the LED has appealing illumination. I think Thomas Edison would approve.

Mr. Edison I must applaud you! Be inspired.
