Pretty Pendants

Compared to other spaces in the home, designer Elizabeth Demos says she wanted the lighting fixtures in the kitchen to be more substantial. The three pendants with large black dome shades over the island are impressive in size and cast lots of good light for tasks being done at the multi-purpose island.

Pop of Color

Table lamps not only provide ambient light, they can also be used to add a pop of color. For the master bedroom, the table lamps on each side of the bed have white shades paired with a light blue base that coordinates with the bedding and adds contrast for the darker colors used in the space.

Simple Sconce

Sometimes simple is better. Case in point: this modern wall sconce handmade out of steel with an exposed light bulb in the powder room. The stylish sconce is located over the vanity mirror and includes a green powder-coated finish for durability.

Fun and Playful

A black and persimmon orange ceiling pendant light in the bunk room coordinates with the room’s four light sconces by the bunk beds. The fun persimmon orange color of the pendant’s shades stands out against the rustic barnwood used for the room’s custom bunk beds.
