Transform Your Space with Lighting! Part 1 – Hotels
February 14, 2013

There are some venues that look amazing on their own and do not need much to give it that wow factor. But there are some spaces that can totally transform just by adding different elements During this next series, it is our goal to show you how to recreate a space by featuring different locations that were transformed simply by adding colored lighting and elegant drapes.

This week, we will show you four different hotels that completely changed once lighting and drapes were added for both ceremonies and receptions.
