Lighting fixtures are far more than functional, they are also the jewelry of the home. The chandeliers and sconces used in a home make a strong statement for style and elegance. See the gracious lighting fixtures I selected recently for a client’s home, shown below. The lights for this home are all in warm silver leaf finishes and polished nickel keeping a sophisticated aesthetic.
As a designer it is imperative to me that the lighting give the adequate amount of light, be the correct size for the room, and be hung at the appropriate height. Also, each light in the home should be distinct. I avoid matching “sets” of lighting fixtures and search to find the perfectly unique coordinating lighting fixtures, so that each light is of interest and something unexpected.
And don’t assume fans have to be an eye sore. Take a look at the stylish bentwood fan I used in a client’s Master Sitting Room.
