Big is Definitely Better When it Comes to Light Fixtures . . . so says LeSueur Interiors

Meg Lonergan at LeSueur Interiors lights up when she sees a large and impressive -- an essentially, unforgettable -- chandelier. And she thinks we'll see more of them this year! Actually, make that all light fixtures and sconces in various styles and shapes . . .

Meg, as did some of the others who provided 2011 What's-Hot-Now picks this month, says we'll continue to see ethnic textiles, too:

Meg recently shared these 5 tips on how to make your home more comfortable and exciting. And if you'd like to read more about her, she writes the blog, Lagniappe.

As for additional expectations for the year, she says to look for:

- concrete and honed marble or granite kitchen counter tops (no more shiny surfaces)
- soothing, neutral, pale paint palettes
- layered rugs
- simple, clean drapery treatments (no more over-trimmed and decorated styles)
- interiors that look collected (no matchy-match)

Thanks for having me Susan! :) I've loved reading everyone's predictions!

I would love to change ALL the light fixtures in my house (keep dreaming...) because I have a thing for lighting (my current budget doesn't). And I'm loving all the vibrant textiles, and I need to find a way to get them in my home, along with that bit of orange that I'm still trying to force in (not a lot of hope, there, it just doesn't work yet). Have a great day, Susan!

I think those predictions are right on target!
