Illuminate Your Space

Today I'm up to my ears in moving boxes and packing supplies, so I'm getting a break from blogging with a guest post from Arcadian Lighting. Let's get lighting ideas from the experts!

There's no point in spending painstaking hours choosing the right wall color and accent pieces for a space if it isn't properly lit. A light fixture can make or break the entire look of a room - and the choices of lighting fixtures are endless. From wall sconces and Tiffany lamps to under cabinet lighting, the way in which you illuminate your space is crucial to a well-coordinated stylish space.

Mod and chic

A chandelier doesn't have to be wrought-iron or adorned in crystals - this modern twist on the traditional is white to match the table and chairs, giving this dining room a seamless look.

A perfect match
Lighting Options

Identical table lamps placed on either side of a room, like these metallic light fixtures propped on the ends of a couch, create balance and symmetry.

Similarly stylish
Lighting Options

Lighting fixtures can become decor accents when they have similar designs - they can act as a way to tie the entire look of a room together.

Outdoor opulence
Lighting Options

Illuminate your space outdoors and create a dreamy landscape. Spotlights, inset lights on the deck and even pretty white lights strung in trees are all great outdoor lighting options.

Contemporary workspace

Turn an ordinary home office into a urban oasis with edgy ceiling light fixtures like these outer-space-inspired orbs.

Posh pendants

Beds flanked with beautiful wall sconces offer both form and function - they are visually appealing and double as convenient reading lights.

Exotic luminaries

A back porch can be accented by an endless array of light fixtures - think outside the box and opt for shabby chic lanterns fashioned out of colored glass jugs.

Light showpieces

A vignette looks oh-so-haute-couture when the decor elements are doubled - two boldly-coloured window treatments are mixed with identical table lamps and two luxurious foot stools.
