When you think of updating your home, think lighting! Lighting is more than functional – an on-trend lighting design can update the look and mood of any room, from traditional to modern. It’s amazing how one small change can make such a big impact!

I love the statement this fixture makes in my own dining room, and how it complements both the mirror and the gold and silver metallic accents in the wallpaper.

Here’s another example from a project we recently completed – the breathtaking wall of mirrors reflects the simple and elegant lines of this gold chandelier.

The High Point Market in North Carolina is a designer’s dream and THE place to spot design trends. It’s the largest home furnishings show in the world, with over 2000 exhibitors throughout more than 100 buildings. This fall’s High Point Market put the spotlight on lighting trends – gold is huge! Textured, metallic fixtures add a WOW factor as focal points and works of art. Here are some top picks that caught our eye at Design Connection, Inc. All of the pieces we are sharing today are available through our design studio here in Overland Park. If you see something you love, let us know!
