Rose Gold Lighting for Every Style

Maxim Lighting Meteor Rose Gold and Crystal Vanity Lighting

Maxim Lighting Meteor Rose Gold and Crystal Vanity Lighting

Rose Gold has warm cast that is flattering. It feels new and fresh, but it is actually a classic.

Even pure gold is slightly reddish yellow in color. Anything other than 24 karate gold is mixed with something. Rose gold is gold mixed with copper. The more copper, the darker the red color of the gold. Red gold jewelry is up to 50% copper, 50% gold. Rose gold is 75% pure gold mixed with copper and silver. Continue reading

Rose Gold for Any Room and Any Style

Schoolhouse Lighting

You probably already know what Schoolhouse Lighting looks like. When you shop for lighting, especially a fan light, it is labeled.

But why is this called Schoolhouse Lighting?

What I am going to write next is something I know. And it’s one of those things I know that I don’t remember where I learned it. So that means that the knowledge is suspect, because it was very likely from a fiction book. A lot of fiction books include facts, but those facts are suspect unless confirmed. We call them factions.

I was surprised by how many people did not have a home office before they started to work from home during this Pandemic.

Most people (54%) didn’t have a remote work setup before the government moved to curb nonessential gatherings, according to a survey conducted by YouGov in partnership with USA TODAY and LinkedIn. Meanwhile, 74% of professionals age 18 to 74 said they’re now working from home.
