Interior design is not just about aesthetics; it’s also about creating a space that promotes your mental health and well-being.  In today’s post-pandemic world, many of us are back to the grind outside of our homes.  Finding a balance between work and personal life is more crucial than ever before.  With the right textures and lighting, you can create a space that brings you comfort and relaxation.

To achieve a space that positively impacts your mood and behavior, consider what helps you feel most, comfortable, connected, and zen. Textures and lighting that match your style and personality can play a significant role in achieving this goal.  By incorporating lighting design that looks good and makes you feel good too, you can create a space that promotes relaxation and productivity, helping you achieve the balance we all crave.

We understand how important lighting is on our moods and behavior in home design.  Functional yet stunning lighting fixtures will create the perfect ambiance for any space.

2.  Modern Industrial style

Industrial style has been popular for decades, but the latest trends give lighting an elevated look with a modern, sleek style.  Dare we say… industrial glamour?!  This less-is-more approach emphasizes minimal lines and contemporary styles, all with quality materials built to last. Materials that stand the test of time.  Modern industrial-style lighting is perfect for creating sophisticated and clean aesthetics that elevate any space.

To incorporate modern industrial-style lighting into your home, consider adding pendants or chandeliers with exposed bulbs and simple designs.  These fixtures are perfect for creating that sought-after industrial style while maintaining that sleek and modern feel.  For a softer look, try pairing these fixtures with softer textures, such as natural wood, textiles, or plants.  

You can take the modern industrial look a step further by incorporating industrial materials into other aspects of your decor.  Consider using metal accents in your furniture or decor pieces, copper and brass are on trend right now.  Use a muted color palette of grays, blacks, and neutrals to create a clean and minimal look that complements your industrial lighting.  By incorporating these fixtures into your decor and using complementary textures and colors, you can achieve a sleek and modern aesthetic that will impress any guest.

3. Using lighting to make a statement

It’s time to step outside of your comfort zone and embrace the power of the statement light. Just like a beautiful piece of statement jewelry, a statement light can add personality, create a focal point, and set the mood for your entire room.

Take it a step further and go bold with sculptural lighting designs.  Sculptural lighting fixtures are a great way to add both form and function to your space.  Not only do they provide light, but they also serve as a work of art.  From geometric shapes to abstract designs, there are so many options to choose from.Of course, when selecting your sculptural lighting piece, you will want to consider the size and style of your room.  If you have a compact space, opt for a smaller fixture that won’t overwhelm.  But, with larger rooms, you can go big and bold to really make a grand statement.  In addition to size, you will also want to think about the placement of your sculptural lighting piece.  We suggest placing it in a prominent location, such as over a dining table or in the center of the room, to really give it the attention it deserves.  Your space will thank you!

Gone are the days of just sticking to just one design style in your home decor.  Mixing and matching styles has become a popular trend in interior design, allowing you to create a space that is uniquely yours.

But how can you mix and match styles without creating a room full of chaos?  The key is to find common threads between your different styles and tie them together with cohesive elements such as lighting.

Picture this – you have a modern kitchen with eclectic tile and industrial-style lighting fixtures.  While these styles may seem the opposite, they can come together to create a cohesive and visually appealing space when done thoughtfully.  Here you will need to focus on one dominant style and use the other styles as accents.  Clear design + playful touches. Be experimental. Be creative.
