Flip the Switch on Your Outdated Light Fixtures – Find Enlightenment in Our Design Ideas
As a Kansas City interior designer, I usually have multiple projects in various stages spinning their scheduled wheels towards completion. My daily life is dictated by the calendar. I don’t make a phone call without the calendar in front of me. How is it possible for Christmas to sneak up on me EVERY YEAR? This year is no exception. There are only 6 more weeks until Christmas. 6 more weeks until Christmas! You know what that means…
It’s time to hang the lights! Stringing Christmas lights instantly transforms your home in a magical way. But it’s not just holiday lighting that possesses the power to enchant. Before you start drawing straws to assign the daunting task of untangling last year’s Christmas lights, let’s take a look at your home and how these hanging light options can fascinate your space beyond the Holiday season.
The Power of Pendants
Our recent trip to High Point Fall 2013 Furniture Market featured tons of new designs and emerging trends. The silvers and pewters made popular in the last few years are being out-shined by smooth golds and bright brasses.
Along with selecting the perfect paint colors, countertops and furnishings, many of my clients experience some uncertainty when choosing the perfect light fixtures for their home. Sometimes it’s hard to visualize the “After” when you are still surrounded with the “Before”. For example, here is the Quadralli drop light from Fine Art Lamps, one of our favorite lighting sources at Design Connection, Inc.
Available in a variety of styles like sconces, pendants & chandeliers, complete collections like the Quadralli Collection (above) and the Perspective Collection (below) takes the guess work out of coordinating your fixtures throughout your home.
Sconces are a very popular choice for bathrooms of all sizes and styles. The Hollywood dressing room vanity bulbs are, thankfully, a thing of the past. These crystal lantern sconces reflect the perfect amount of sparkle in this Design Connection, Inc. powder room remodel.
Hanging pendant lights have become a very popular choice in many kitchen remodels at Design Connection, Inc. There is an endless array of colors, styles and patterns available and sure to fit your space and your personal style.
Selecting the perfect lighting for your home can be a challenge.
