Fun with Lighting

The Conrad project is now in the lighting stage, I am sooo excited! I have mentioned lighting in previous blogs, so my love for lighting as room jewelry is well known. My Modern/Bohemian style is pretty apparent with this project's lighting selection. The house is an open floor ranch with an overall feeling of warmth with plenty of color, dark hand scraped hardwood floors, slate floors and lots of windows.

  • The entry will have a slate tile floor and the light at the top of the picture (Bellacor Lighting) will be in the foyer. The style is a little bit industrial, a little bit nautical but the color is definitely rustic.
  • The Moravian stars (Bellacor Lighting) will be in the guest bath with a limestone floor and an overall "beachy" style.
  • The drum pendants (CB2) will be in the guest bedrooms. They have a fabulous mod 60's design and can easily be customized to fit any decor.
  • The long pendant ( will hang over a pool table in the rec room. I love the modern clean lines of this light, not something you would find in most pool halls.
  • The Moroccan lanterns at the bottom right of the page (Wisteria) will also be in the rec room hanging over the bar. The bar will also have reclaimed barn wood that was purveyed from the family ranch.
  • The clear pendant (Wisteria), bottom left corner, will hang over a small Spanish dining table in the breakfast nook.
  • The cute little cut crystal "Beauty Spots" from Wac Lighting (Lightingdirect) will be scattered randomly across the living room ceiling. The living room will have a 60's Mod style with colors of gray and ivory and some beautiful antique pieces to create a glam little sitting parlor.
  • The smokey grey pendant (West Elm) will hang in a group of 3 over the counter in the kitchen.
  • The cute iron and crystal chandi (GSPN Crystals) will be in the powder room, one of our favorite rooms in the house! The walls are a fabulous sea blue, the floor tiles are a brown and teal with a metallic finish. The vanity is a cute little dry sink that we had stained a brownish gray and the sink itself is a stunning aqua/teal porcelain bowl that I bought for them 5 years ago to use as a sink in the new house. Talk about styling a room around an object!
  • Last but not least, the black drum pendant by Landmark (ATG Lighting) will hang with another in the dining room. The dining room is a rustic/Mod mix, warm pumpkin colored walls, a sideboard from the 50's and a reclaimed wood dining table with metal legs, very clean lines.

Isn't lighting fun! Don't underestimate the power of lighting, it really can make or break a style of a room. Prices do vary, but with a little research, something can be found to fit any budget.
