Not to mention, there are a variety of styles and finishes that can make or break your space! Since the lighting possibilities are endless, we decided to round up some of our favorites! Discover our top 10 favorite light fixtures and shop the looks below to light up your space with warmth and style!
Now that’s what I call making an entrance! As you can see in this staircase foyer, our eye is drawn to many levels of this space due to the clever staggering heights of these three Moravian star pendant lights. Not only that, but the bright brass finish is such a charming welcome to entering guests. At night, one can only imagine that it would be a starry night outside and inside! And check out these equally amazing Kate Spade arched globe sconces above the window seating.
Nothing says raw beauty more than this clear beaded chandelier. This lighting is the perfect size and shape for this matching round dining table, and the light gray color palette light mixed with the rustic wood floors give off a calming coastal vibe. The distressed metal of the chandelier and the shiny beading with the candelabra bulbs is the definition of rustic elegance.
Saturated and sweet, these colors can be used in any lighting setting, not only in this stylish nursery. This Benjamin Moore fuchsia paint on the window trim and molding is the perfect backdrop for the chartreuse lantern in creating a whimsical yet eccentric nursery! The bright color and soft scalloped edges are what makes this pendant really shine with it’s accompanied colors and patterns.
Let’s switch gears with a subtle yet trendy lighting choice. The mixing of metals is making a huge splash in the interior design world, and these two toned globe pendants are proof that this trend is here to stay. Brass can also be seen throughout the kitchen in the Chesterfield faucet and wall sconce, but it’s the matte black finish in the pendants that create a pop of contrast in this neutral kitchen. It’s industrial style is a great offset to the abundance of soft Carrara marble.
Want a new take on a swing arm wall sconce? Light up your office space with this industrial style accordion arm sconce. The shade has a cool modern shape to it and a sleek satin black finish, giving the space some added character. It not only exudes style, but this sconce extends fully out and rotates right to left and up and down for your optimal lighting needs!
Looking for a dreamy and dressy bedroom atmosphere? This Barbary Barry Simple Scallop Pendant is a dream come true! The pure white scalloped shade creates is minimal and when paired with a light gray color scheme can illuminate your space with total elegance. The light and airy glass bedside lamps flank the pendant in such a cohesive way and give this transitional bedroom even more openness and light.
Here comes the triple threat! To maximize the flow of light in this large and luxurious ocean blue living room, an Aerin Sommerard Medium Triple-Arm Chandelier is hung front and center. To offset the dark grasscloth wallpaper, accents of white are seen in the lighting, drapery and accent furniture to illuminate the space. The chandelier is not heavy looking, so when added to any space it can create a modern and airy feel.
One of my favorite nooks is a breakfast nook! Even though it can be a small space, adding a statement light fixture can sure make a big impact. This clean mid-century breakfast nook is filled with a 3-tier woven basket chandelier illuminating over an oval marble table lined with 4 matching woven Wishbone dining chairs. The white elements and natural elements achieve a Bohemian modern environment, perfect for enjoying your morning cup of coffee.
I love the trend of mixing floral patterns with geometric patterns, as seen in this black and white floral wallpaper and marble hexagonal floor tile. However, what really ties this powder bath together is the elegant polished chrome sconces. The crystal spheres magnify the light, giving every surface the perfect glow! Not to mention, the single sconces pair perfectly with the lucite and chrome console sink.
Everyone needs the proper lighting when doing their weekly load of laundry. That’s why this vintage gooseneck sconce is the obvious choice. This farmhouse fixture is a simple yet classic addition to any mudroom or laundry and will never go out of style, especially when accompanied by a slate tile floor, farmhouse sink, and white cabinetry.
So, there you have it! I hope this lighting roundup has inspired you to illuminate your spaces with the best of the best.
