Visiting the Dallas International Lighting Market is an eye opening for new innovations and the opportunity to meet vendors and buyers from different parts of the world.
The market offers the chance for new designers to showcase their ideas and established companies to keep up with the trend.
One thing I liked is these step lights by BULBRITE. These pretty round lights are made with led. New this year, they are color changing led. BULBRITE step lights allows users to adjust colors to a certain speed or freeze on your favorite color.

Some times it just take a bit of imagination to transform something plain into unique.
Taking a couple of simple sheer panels from your local linen store and adding your favorite color ribbons, will make this project very personalized.
For this project, fall colors such as yellow, olive and burgundy were use to mark the start of our fall season!
Here is how to do this simple project:
1. Measure the width of your panel (top and bottom) to find out the amount of material to buy.
2. Purchase three 1" ribbons of your favorite color and a coordinating threat.
3. Figure how many pleats fit in your panel. It all depends on the width. For example, a 36 inch panel divided by 4 will give you a 9 inch space between tabs.
4. Cut sets of ribbons, depending on the amount of tabs. Ribbons need a minimum of 20" each, this way you can make a nice bow.
5. Pin and sew the set of ribbons to the top edge of panels.
6. Measure 3 to 5 inches bellow your tabs and that's where you start sewing your ribbons horizontally.
7. Make sure you leave a space of 1" between ribbons.
8. Repeat same procedure to the bottom of panels.
9. Carefully steam or iron panels depending on the type of material.
10. Hang and enjoy your personalized window treatment.
Enjoy the season!

This particular pattern is very fresh and conversational. The cobalt blue color is very strong and bold. We will be seeing these trendy tones throughout the rest of the year!
The materials are a cotton blend and a beautiful detail on the pattern is that the blue coral is a tiny plaid fabric. The fuzzy blue trim is made out of chenille and an ecru French gimp embellishes both lampshade and chandelier shades. The Veranda lamp lends itself to so many looks.
Change the crystals to a cobalt blue, imagine!!!
