Lighting plays a pivotal role in creating an atmosphere and mood for any room, so for today's blog post we have decided to share some great inspiration photos we have collected that demonstrate different styles of light fixtures.
Consider the colour of your lighting fixture and how it will contrast or compliment the rest of your room. A white chandelier in a white room will give a softer more subtle appearance, providing an illusion of space while alluding to modernism. Contrasting a black chandelier against a white room with make it a standout piece and draw attention immediately to it. Colour in lighting fixtures can look incredible if done right but make sure to take into consideration the other colours in the room, including decorator pieces, and how it will look in both daylight and at nighttime when it is on.
The lighting fixtures in the above picture are eye-catching pieces meant to draw attention. This kind of lighting is great for highlighting interesting characteristics of the room, for instance if you have a design or coloured ceiling. Remember to take into consideration the height of your room as you don't want the lighting to swamp the area. If you want to display an eye-catching lighting fixture but don't want to draw too much attention to your ceiling, consider going for a wide fixture rather than a long one and make sure to hang it lower. This will create the illusion of height and space without highlighting the flaws (if there are any!) of your ceiling.
Adding unique lighting fixtures is a great way to bring more personality to a room and be used a true standout showpiece for you to build your decor around. When you're choosing your lighting, look for something that reflects your own personality and the mood you would like to bring to the specific room. Think about whether you want the lighting to be complimentary to the rest of the room or act as a contrasting standout piece. Before you start purchasing, decide if you are going to 'mix and match' lighting or purchase multiples of the same style to keep a coherence throughout your house.
