We love the contrasts of color and textures in this space. The centered brick wall gives a warm, homey feel while the pale blue, low sitting sofas feel modern. The yellow, orange and white staggered pendant lamps are stunning against the brick wall. This room really showcases how to add a tasteful pop of color while mixing decor styles. Here we can see that the lighting give you an opportunity to play with color and how to incorporate different looks in a beautiful, cohesive fashion.
The lighting here is bright and full but works perfectly with the dark wood so it doesn’t seem too blaringly bright. If you like a more subdued feel to your eating area we recommend a few pendants with a dark table and darker wood pallets. The lighting sets up the whole dining area as a space to be used frequently. The lights above a dining table typically should hang 30 to 36 inches above the table.
The wood doors, floors and paneling is stunning here! We love the tiny lights above and larger floor lamp that shines from the corner of the room. Added circular stools and big, bright windows make this room contemporary and cool.
This is the way to light up a dining room! You’ll enjoy your meals and company more than ever with the gorgeous inlay chandelier in the center of the room. The smaller lights appear like glitter for the space!
These pendant lights are so versatile. Here, there are retro style chairs and a glass top table which make the space more eclectic. However, you can add wood elements for more of a rustic look or big granite counter tops for a dazzling, fabulous feel. We suggest 30 inches above the bar area is where the bottom of the pendants should hang.
The lighting here is simple: one large, robust light off-centered from the dining table. The color really looks great with the tone of the walls, and wood furniture. Again, this lighting is functional and would go great with an array of personal styles.
We absolutely love this glittering, waterfall style pendant lighting. This room feels big, beautiful and open. If you have a large space and are looking for a avant garde way to improve it, consider this beauty! These will be sure to sparkle and shine every time you come home.
Three straightforward bulb style pendants are fun and different. The exposed bulbs create a sultry space for your and your loved ones. We love how they shine behind the evening sky. These would look awesome in a den or any creative space.
Wow. We love everything about this space.The sleek, white look of the room, with another glittering centerpiece is stunning. The medium sized, crystal chandelier is perfect with simple single wire. This set up is ready for brunch and mimosas with your girlfriends or Easter lunch with the entire family.
The long pendant lighting is placed perfectly. It illuminates the dining space and has a matching stand-up lamp to light up the living room area. The warm colored lights make the space welcoming. This is another example of how a lighting plan is important to the overall flow and blending of different rooms in your home.
We like how the three large circular lights look in this area. Big windows give great natural light while accompanying the off white and black centered lights. This style looks great in with a tall ceiling but would also work in a smaller area. Pick a couple different shades of your favorite color and incorporate them into the lighting.
Every pool table need a great light overhead. The black dome styled lights look bold and classic in this room. We like how the dark shades go with the pool table but yet still maintains a sense of openness overall.
The lighting here is adorable! The two simple white small dome shaped pendants work so well against the grey walls. The Earthy color palette is really working for this entire look. The lighting here could be modified by adding a different tone embellishment. Instead of silver, try copper or gold!
These pendants, known as “drop” shaped, are spaced widely apart creating an airy, open feel to the room. We like the white color pendants against the dark wood back splash for this room.
If you’re going for a simple color palette, try a bold shaped pendant light like this one. The large, pair of white pendants look great with this clean, modern kitchen.
The chandelier here was made for those who love to make a statement in their home. Although the chandelier is bright and bold, the look here is toned down by the black dining room table and chairs. We like the option of bringing in sparkles and shine for the holidays but also using simple pieces in the summertime for a laid back feel. Both looks will work!
Calling all artists, creatives and folks who love unique and funky. We have the lighting fixtures for you! The cream colored pendant inside an opaque globe shaped fixture serves as a double whammy! These lights glow in the space and will sure be a conversation starter.
Dark, large and glossy! The pendant here is a show stopper and doesn’t need anything else around it. The look here is complete with farm-to-table rustic style but simultaneously feels classic and chic. Black usually looks fabulous with a glossy finish. This is something to take into consideration for lighting if you are looking to add some flare to your kitchen area.
At Inspire Home+Life we are all about surprises. We love how these pendants are silver from a distance but if you take a look under or have a seat at the bar, you’ll discover the gorgeous orange! This is a great way to blend a little splash of color for those who want to spice up their home.
The gleaming light fixtures match the black counter top in this home. We really like to the idea of matching the color and/or style of the countertops with the pendants. It gives the kitchen a complete look and seamlessly feels sleek. The room also has a touch of retro feel, like glamorous 1950s.
This old fashioned style chandelier is making a comeback! This piece is timeless and will make your home shine. Regardless of your style, consider amping up the dining space or even the family room with a radiant light fixture like this chandelier. There is something about the crystal, the intricate detail, and the way it hangs that makes us feel so good when coming home.
Recessed lighting scattered around the ceiling is a sleek, clean way to efficient light up an entire room. If you are looking for something easy but still very stylish, consider installing a few of these in your desired room.
