Create A Statement With Lighting Fixtures
I’m excited to share one of my favorites parts of the house which is the lights. I love creating a statement with lighting fixtures. Nowadays homeowners today are making bold style statements with gorgeous lighting fixtures. Enjoy my collection of chandeliers and lighting fixtures from my previous and current homes.
I don’t know if you remember in one of my earlier posts I added reclaimed wood in my bedroom ceiling. This was in my previous home. I was looking for a rustic and simple chandelier that would add the perfect touch to the bedroom. I found one and you can find this little charmer at Pottery Barn. The whitewash finish on the turned-wood column and stepped candle cups of the vintage-inspired Venice Chandelier give it its new-traditional aesthetic. Made of wood and iron arms.
If budget is an issue you can visit your antique store or thrift store and find a lighting fixture that can be recycled into something you will love. You can always paint it and add new crystal droplets.

Kitchen Lighting Fixtures
When I was designing my kitchen I was planning on making the hanging lights the center of attention. I think I achieved that with these black cone shape lights from Rejuvenation. The workmanship is well worth the price. Make sure when you are measuring the ceiling height that you have at least 3 feet from the island. You don’t want the lighting fixture to hang to low.
All I can say about these pretty sconces they were perfect and the search was worth the time. I was looking for something that made a statement. These sconces were the perfect width and height.
Make sure you measure the height of the mirror. You want to center the fixture in the middle and something big enough that will create a wow factor. Anything small will look out of place against a big mirror.
Dining Room Chandelier
For the dining room chandelier, I knew I needed something coastal to accent a large reclaimed table. I was searching for that perfect one and I found this beaded chandelier by Francesca Beaded Chandelier also at pottery barn. Whitewashed wood beads give the Francesca Chandelier a fresh, summery look. Whether in a dining room or a seating area, it’s a natural complement to any decor style. Covered in gemelina wood beads.
Tip: The chandelier should be centered on the table. Tell your electrician to center it on the ceiling.
More and more people are adding chandeliers in their bedroom. It creates a statement. I choose a traditional chandelier with crystal droplets. I wanted to create an elegant look but at the same time, I wanted simple if that makes sense. The chandelier is giving me all the bling I want in my bedroom without having to look over done.
I love that people are adding more glamour to the bathrooms. It is a great place to relax. I choose for my bathrooms a glamourous chandelier that matches the bedroom one. Which is why I pick these both from Pottery Barn. Mia Faceted-Crystal Pendant comes in different sizes. Dozens of sparkling, faceted-glass crystals cascade from antique-bronze-finished rings that are embellished with decorative detailing. Crafted of glass and steel.
Just like bathrooms and bedrooms the laundry room is becoming more creative than before. Good-by ugly and drab laundry rooms and welcome exciting well-decorated ones. Why not since we spend a great deal of time there. For my laundry room, I added some industrial sconces to give this space some character. I added two one on each side of the window. Priced right for my budget.
