Have you ever wanted to make a cosmetic upgrade to your home – such as a new bathroom faucet, fresh cabinet knobs, or even new modern house numbers – but you didn’t know where to shop? Perhaps you want something elevated beyond the offerings of The Home Depot, yet the word “custom” just isn’t in your budget. Check out my list of retail vendors that I turn to for quick yet tasteful homes upgrades and fixes. (Can you spot the items in our client’s glamorous San Francisco kitchen above that came from a few of these vendors?)


Circa has a beautiful selection of traditional to modern light fixtures for every area of the home, including the exterior. Their expertly-designed styles, excellent customer service, easy-to-navigate website, and free shipping makes Circa a designer-go-to. An excellent resource to keep on hand!


Lightology stocks modern and contemporary light fixtures from well-known brands such as Artemide, Hudson Valley, and Sonneman. They also sell track, recessed, and landscape fixtures, in addition to bulbs and dimmers, making them a one-stop shop and essential resource for designers and homeowners. They also have an excellent customer service reputation and can assist you in selecting the proper light for your specific application.
