Hey guys! I have some pretty things to chat about…lighting!

I love lighting. It doesn’t matter where it is, simple or extravagant, lighting is my fav part of design. And…I love all forms…lamps, pendants, chandeliers, indoor, outdoor. Okay, actually…I don’t love track lighting. I think that’s the only one. Lighting can either make the room or simply just blend in. Whatever it is there are SO MANY OPTIONS. So many. And, being a lover of lighting, it’s hard to choose just which one for your space. So, obviously I go to my first stop, You know its my fav. Honestly, my house is either furnished/decorated with Wayfair or Homesense. The prices are amazing, the options are huge and they are so on trend.

I've gathered some of my favs together...

1. School House 2. Metal Lantern 3. Gold Geometric Pendant 4. Six Light Pendant 5. Black & Gold 6. Globe Pendant 7. Courtland Pendant 8. Black Lantern

I need pendants. The question these days is do you go gold (on trend) or chrome/silver (always a good constant) or black or mix. Hmm. Like many on the design wagon, mixing metals is a thing and I like it. So I decided to look for black and gold pendants. Don’t forget that in your kitchen, you will want to consider the faucet colour and hardware when choosing your lighting. The island is going to be big…10ft.

My advice when trying to decide on multiple pieces for a room is simple. You have to just decide on your first item. You gotta start from somewhere girl. If you love it, buy it and then base everything else around that thing. I think I’m going to pick the pendant light as my first thing and it's going to be one of those beauties above. Have a favourite?

Let's talk swing-arm lighting. They've been around forevs and have gone up and down in trend. Right now they're hot hot! There is a window on the back kitchen wall that looks out to the backyard, with open flanking shelves. A light is going there and obviously, which pendants we pick will need to coordinate with that light.

More faves to pick from....
1. Black Shade  2. East Coast  3. Freddy Wall Swing Arm  4. Metal Swing 5. Gold & Black

Eventually, the same light we choose for over the window will be over the bookcase/shelving/art (can you tell we’re not sure what we’re doing there yet) in the tv room that is open to the kitchen. All we know right now is that on that wall there will be a tv and a fireplace. What flanks it is still unknown.

I’m giving myself a few days to order the pendants. Send me your thoughts on your favs or I’ll surprise you. Head on over to Instagram as I will be showing you on Instastories which one I chose!


Keep it Beautiful.
