Layered Kitchen Lighting: How Doubling Down On Your Lighting Fixtures Can Make A Big Difference

The difference between a kitchen that looks good and a kitchen that looks great isn’t how you decorate the space, it’s how you light it. Even the best designed kitchens feel lackluster with inadequate lighting, while a few stylish, well-placed lights can make even an ordinary kitchen come alive. And, of course, good lighting plays […]

Home Office Chandeliers – Designer Fixtures For Your Workspace

Lighting is rarely a top priority when designing a home office. After all, there’s a long list of expenses and considerations that have to come first, from furniture to electronics to simple connectivity.

Top Trends: Modern Rustic And Reclaimed Chandeliers For A Contemporary Restoration Style

Chandeliers are the go-to lighting fixtures for large spaces. They’re the only type of light that’s big enough to stand up to a very high ceiling and hefty enough to hold its own in a spacious room. That said, the word “chandelier” often conjures images of very traditional fixtures – ones made of elegantly wrought, […]

Affordable Alternatives To A Traditional Crystal Chandelier

Crystal chandeliers are essentially the gold standard of home lighting fixtures. They’re traditional, beautiful, elegant… and expensive. Genuine leaded glass crystals are often made by hand using proprietary chemical formulas and time-tested artisan techniques, which makes for an heirloom quality piece, but not one that’s ideal for a smaller budget or even a smaller home. […]

Using Colorful Lighting Fixtures To Brighten Up A Modern Space

By and large, modern spaces are fairly monochromatic. Glass and steel, black, white, and gray, simple lines and straightforward designs that all add up to a sleek, stylish – and very minimalist – decor. But if you ask me, as elegant as a very simple, sophisticated modern design can be, it isn’t always terribly inviting. […]

Ditch The Crystal – Beautiful, Budget-Friendly Glass Chandeliers

For a long time now, crystal has been the go-to material when it comes to chandeliers. From a few teardrops to chandeliers made more of crystal than anything, crystal chandeliers are so ubiquitous that the “crystal” is practically implied just in the word “chandelier.” And there’s every reason for it – the beautiful optic quality […]

Choosing The Right Island Light For Your Kitchen Island

In recent years, kitchen islands have become more and more popular, especially in large kitchens with open floorplans. But upping the size of your kitchen – and especially introducing a secondary workspace like a kitchen island – means you’ll need more and better lighting. Some kitchen islands are used for prep, some for seating, and […]

Modern Chandeliers For A Contemporary Living Space

Chandeliers are typically associated with antique styles and old world design. You know the kind – big, imposing, crystal-laden chandeliers made to dominate large parlors or grand staircases and are more about look than lighting. But if your living space is a little more modern, never fear. Modern chandeliers are increasingly available, and are simpler, […]

Rustic Chandeliers For A Sophisticated Cabin Style

When you hear the word “chandelier,” you probably think of a huge fixture dripping crystals, with lots of little flame shaped lights – something you’d find in a ballroom or a fancy hotel. But not all chandeliers are quite so formal. In fact, I personally think that casual, rustic chandeliers are highly underrated. While formal […]
