I've long had in my mind various markers for success. If I see a piano in someone's home, for example, that to me is a sign that the person has made enough money that they not only could afford a piano, but could afford to have the thing moved into their apartment. (No easy feat in NYC!) What else separates the haves from the have-nots? Good lighting. fab.com is selling some gorgeous lighting floor lights right now and I want ALL of them. (If you can believe it, readers, what lights up my bedroom is one bare light bulb.) Give me some time to save up some money for these beautiful lamps and then, yes, I'll be ready for my close-up.
