Looking for creative alternate lighting solution to brighten up your home? Here are some recommendations to make your home feel unique.
If your bedroom style is more industrial, a funky way to add more character is by incorporating the raw utilitarian look of metal Steampunk cage pendants. To get an even more authentic industrial feel, opt in for a filament bulb that gives out a warm comforting glow similar to candlelight.
A good way to adjust your bedroom atmosphere to match your current mood is to tune up or down the intensity of lighting. Simply connect the pendants to a light dimmer that is compatible with the incandescent light bulbs.
If you like to bend the rules, a mix-and-match option might be just the thing for you, when it comes to choosing lighting for living room spaces. Instead of placing matching table lamps on both ends of your sofa, try creating a vignette or a composition of similar style lamps on one end while placing a floor lamp on the opposite end. To balance the vignette, make sure one of the lamps is about 1/3 the size of the other. Also, because you are now having two light sources on one surface, their total luminosity level should equal to one standard lamp. For that you will need to find bulbs that in their combination will equal to about 1600 lumens. To find out how many lumens a bulb emits, simply look at the box! The information should be provided by the manufacturer. If you are having trouble, try typing in the brand and model of the bulb online, and you should be able to find what you’re looking for.
If you want to impress your dinner party guests for the Holidays, reconsider complex table centerpieces for an overhead conversation starter, such as an unusual feather chandelier. Depending on your design goals, it is possible to create various feels with this type of bold lighting fixture. For example, in combination with light-colored and distressed French-style furniture, it may enhance the Shabby Chic atmosphere with its angelic ambient lighting. It will also work in a more monochromatic contemporary setting in synchronicity with glass surfaces and polished metals.
