Reinvent the atmosphere in your home with new lighting fixtures, decorative lamp shades or floor lampsfor added height. There are many options to choose from, and you can play with contrasting colors and finishes to add elegance and sophistication to any room.
Playing with pattern and texture is an easy way to implement eye catching pieces to a room. Lamp shades come in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes to add a personal touch. If your dining room chairs or living room furniture is a solid fabric, patterned lamp shades are engaging and playful. If you have neutral furniture play with color!
Make sure the color isn’t too bright or neon though as you do not want lamp shades to appear too young or immature. Some shades have embellishments such as beads, rhinestones or tassels for a little something extra. Stick with the design aesthetic set in place, no matter what room you are redecorating, because lighting simply changes the mood of a room. When you contrast lighting with an entire design concept you are entering into dangerous waters.
The form of a lampshade can completely change the atmosphere in a room. You can choose a modern touch or old world fixtures. There are many unique fixtures that appear as artwork instead of traditional lighting fixtures. Pendant lights are a wonderful addition to a kitchen because they hang effortlessly above dining areas or the counter for a minimalistic appearance. Think drama, think eye-catching think extraordinary. Take any space in your home and add drama too it with a chandelier that has a modern touch. Try a double chandelier with exposed light bulbs for an old world touch. Whatever design idea are occurring in a space try to mimic the lines and curves in your choice of lighting. If your dining room table is round, choose a round lampshade, or pendant lighting.
Theme lighting is an emerging aesthetic a lot of homeowners are experimenting with. When choosing luxury furniture that has a central theme to it you can easily transfer that theme to your lamp shades and fixtures. You can also contrast the theme, for instance if you have a rustic or mainly warm colored room with wood furniture add a metal finish floor lamp for a stark contrast that is visually engaging.
If you simply cannot choose between the old and new combine the best of both worlds. Try metal fixtures with contemporary light bulbs or search for clean lines and smooth metal fixtures with exposed ornate light bulbs. Go with a classic floor or reading lamp in a quiet space next to your most prized chair or sofa in the house. When choosing new light fixtures, lamp shades or bulb style make sure you feel comfortable with the brightness. This is very important as too dim can make a room seem somber, where as too bright can appear fluorescent.
