This week we're looking at home lighting styles we love, from the bold to the timeless.
Picture pendant lights in chrome, bronze or steel. Or wire-grate finishes enveloping a larg old-fashioned yellow bulb. And distressed white-washed wood candelabras.
Farmhouse lighting today mixes the practical with the pretty.
This type of lighting often provides a focal point in the room. Think gold, glass and a little sparkle for a light fixture that truly shines.
From elegant to bold, feminine to glitzy. Glamor lighting styles bring a sense of luxury to any room. Check out our Traditional Glamor build to get more inspiration for your luxe lighting needs.
Nautical doesn’t have to be so obvious anymore. Coastal lighting can be chic with a focus on whites, soft chromes and light woods as well as natural materials. The occasional lantern-style lighting or even woven rope pendant won’t go astray if you’re hoping to give your home a beachy, by the sea-side Nantucket feel.
Mission style lighting can be applied to many different home designs, from traditional to contemporary, because of its clean lines and neutral hues.
Inspired by the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright plus a touch of Spanish and the mission churches of Southern California, the beauty of mission style lighting is that many variations exist. Check out our Contemporary Mission Transitional home to see one of our interpretations.
Expect more geometric forms and simple lines to provide a timeless look that is both inviting and practical, and suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications.
Mission style lighting leans toward angular (but not harsh) lines with soft bronze or metal finishes and tinted glass.
Two lighting fixtures we’re loving right now play on the idea of both providing light as well as art.
These light fixtures look like they sound! These statement lights pop (and look even a little dangerous). Spiky silhouettes and bold finishes bring a bit of excitement into the contemporary homes of today.
Perhaps more art than function, Installation lighting is a piece of interior design to behold. Often quite large-scale, these bold creations are often suspended from the ceiling and provide a sculptural feel and luminescence of light, with bright metal finishes, glasses and reflective materials often used to create quite a show of light.
