Want to bring a touch of class and elegance to your home without going full-on home makeover? Investing in statement lighting is a great way to update your home décor and get the compliments from your house guests rolling in.
The Hanging Pendant
A hanging light in a dining room, kitchen or living room really adds that finishing touch; even if you have minimal decoration in a room, a hanging pendant light makes your home look really current, modern and cool.
Try one big central pendant over the counter in your kitchen or your dining table – make sure to hang the wire securely and not too low to maximise light-span and reduce the chance of bumping your head.
The Copper Craze
Copper toned interior decoration has been a big thing in the past year or so, and the trend looks set to continue long into next year. The warm metallic shade looks super high-end, and can be worked into almost any taste, and is a happy medium between gold and silver. Scotlight have some gorgeous copper styles to get you inspired – check them out.
Whether you’re looking for something big and bold or intricate and delicate to cast beautiful patterns on your walls, you can find something copper to fit the bill. Copper looks pretty great in the kitchen as it harkens back to the days of all-copper pots and pans used in the huge kitchens of stately homes and historic banquets.
Fancy filaments and vintage look glass lightbulbs with exposed fittings are all the rage in interior design at the moment, both in-home and in boutique bars. It’s easy to get this trend in your home and make your home look bang on trend on the smallest of budgets.
Partner your statement lightbulbs with exposed wrapped wiring and hang them at intervals, in clusters and at varying heights for a true industrial looking effect. The partnership of the fancy wrapped cord and the factory-esque exposed bulb looks splendid in the hallway or kitchen.
Love Your Lamps
Lighting is a fantastic thing for adding interest and making a design statement in your home interior with minimal effort and maximum result. A stylish table or desk lamp brings a room together and can really show off your impeccable taste at the same time as being a practical and soft light to read, eat and entertain by.
Using lighting to update your décor is a savvy move to stay up to date with current trends and get your home looking warm and welcoming.
