Decor Essential: Let There Be Light!

NoMas-Blown-Glass-Colored-PendantsNoMas-basketlights-castpatternsAddition of lighting as a design element in your decor adds a new dimension to a room.  When the light fixture itself is an accessory, it adds flair and expression.   Playing with the light creates mood, texture, and depth.  Hand blown glass pendants or sconces, chandeliers, stars, or lanterns, even self-lit wall art, all enliven the space – an indispensable element of decor.

NoMas-blown-glass-tulip-pendants-green-yellow-red-dots-CUNo Mas! offers an extensive collection of lighting, functional works of art that extend lighting into a whole new dimension of accessory.  Chandeliers, wall sconces, pendants – in blown glass, wrought iron, even onyx stone.  The intricate shadows cast by many No Mas! lights bring additional texture and mood to your space.


Every Wall a Blank Canvas

NoMas-Shaman-painting-detail No Mas - "Blanco", Cesar PlascenciaPaintings and wall art set the tone of your room, adding personality.  All the elements in a room create a conversation, telling the visitor a story and creating an environment conducive to relaxing, working, creativity, thoughtful conversation, or whatever the room’s creator had in mind.

Mirrors, in addition to being intriguing wall art with many shapes and types of framing, increase the dimension of the room, with the reflections perceived   as additional space.


A Well Cushioned RoomNoMas-ChiapasEmbroideredPillow

Pillows both visually soften the feel of the room and cushion your repose.  Choosing throw pillows with solid colors, patterns, embroidery… refines the color scheme of a room, accenting the intended mood.  Monochromatic may calm in subdued shades or add a strong pop in bolder colors.  Stripes may raise energy, when bright, or give a feeling of order, with pastels or neutrals.  Flowers and patterns lift the mood.  Steer your decor to the mood you want in any room.
