Interior and under-cabinet lights add instant flair to this stylish kitchen, a 2016 National Kitchen + Bath Association Competition winner. Designer Judith Wright Sentz of Judith Wright Design used ribbon lights in the leaded-glass cabinets to illuminate the shelves within and low voltage lights under the cabinets to bathe the countertops below in warm light.
If you like your cabinets but want a bit more pizzazz, put a spotlight on them with lighting. Designer Judith Wright Sentz used LED ribbon lights inside and low voltage lights underneath. Not only does this showcase the beautiful leaded glass doors and items on display, it also provides additional functional light for the kitchen. Sentz says the kitchen, which was a 2016 National Kitchen + Bath Association Design Competition winner, was once very dark, so she took care to add as much light to the space as possible.
Do you love color? Do you have less than an hour to decorate your tree? Than this colorful Christmas tree is for you. Start by purchasing a variety of solid colored ribbons. You’ll need a lot, so buy in bulk at your local craft store. First, decorate your tree with colorful lights and then wrap the ribbon whimsically around the tree from the top to the bottom. Have fun with the ribbon on your gifts too by tying multiple ribbons around the same gift.
It's important to think about lighting, especially once it gets dark. The warm glow of candles, string lights and lanterns creates a fun outdoor mood. Tea lights, and many battery-operated lighting options, are available at stores like Target and Home Depot. Hang lanterns from the tent ceiling using ribbons.

The two-story great room features a wall of windows blending the indoors and out, as well as an open catwalk that overlooks the living space and views of Eugene, Ore. A gray sectional is centered on an accent wall of raw steel with 72-inch-long ribbon flame fireplace, flatscreen TV and LED lighting.
Pale blue ornaments and ribbons with flecks of gold make this Christmas tree feel festive yet sophisticated. LED lights were a smart choice, too, because they last longer and are more energy efficient.
Designer Katrina Giles welcomed a truly white Christmas. Miniature planted Christmas trees were wrapped with lights and paired with a long garland wreath. Hints of red ribbon and berries on the wreath poke out from the snow and provide a pop of color.
A ribbon-stripe rug rests on warm hardwood floors in this transitional beach-side home. The homeowners love color and wished to keep the atmosphere light and playful.

Try adding a few of these weatherproof lanterns to small crooks along the walkway. To make, coat the inside of a canning jelly jar with mod podge and cover with glitter. Allow it to dry. Add a small strand of battery powered lights, then tuck ribbon under the lid and screw the lid on tight.
This ombre tree is an updated look to a monochromatic style. To decorate your tree like this one, pick one hue (I chose teal). Hang ornaments on your tree going from light on the top to dark on the bottom, which creates the ombre effect. Finish off the look with a long, wired, ombre ribbon. Place crisply wrapped gifts in the same colors as your ornaments underneath the tree.
This farmhouse overlooking the Snoqualmie River Valley in Washington now has the open, airy feel of a fire look-out tower in a national forest. The wall that previously stood between the kitchen and dining room were removed, which allowed the family to add a continuous ribbon of windows around the space. These windows allow tons of natural light into the space and help make it more sustainable. As a tribute to the beautiful forest around them, the family had a custom kitchen island crafted specifically for this space.
These Rudolph-inspired cake pops are sure to delight your little guests.

Display them upright in a white container filled with a block of floral foam. Top the container with fake snow and a printable candy jar label.
