What’s your décor style: Depending on your home, the dining area may be where your family congregates on Sundays for a huge dinner, or it may be an intimate area for you and a few friends. A chandelier should reflect your personal style and that of your home. For a casual dining room consider chandeliers with fabric lamp shades. Different than the typical lamp shade, dining room fixtures that hang down can be coupled with fabric and a down light. This casts a soft glow in the room and delivers directional lighting too.
Color-infused glass. Fixtures made of solid glass appeal to homeowners with a modern eye for design. Soft, neutral colors accent the room without overwhelming it. All glass chandeliers are an alternative to traditional light fixtures, though the shape is traditional, the use of all glass makes it edgy. Blue is today’s new neutral lending a quiet sophistication to any room.
One of the most interesting things about watching the eclipse was witnessing the patterns of light as the moon moved in front of the sun, with various effects such as a starburst. World Market has created its own exclusive chandelier resembling that effect. The Brass Starburst Collin Chandelier, priced at $199, is both affordable and memorable. Made of iron with a matte brass finish, this fixture includes nine type B 25-watt light bulbs, offering rays of light that extend across the table.
Mixed materials. Imagine the glamour of old Hollywood combined with contemporary design elements. The mix of metals, crystals, colors, and finishes in light fixtures helps bring a room to life in new and unexpected ways. Lighting fixtures can be as eclectic as any other piece of home décor. If your style is hard to categorize, a lighting fixture with mixed materials – glass, crystal, metal, wrought-iron – may be the decorating solution you need.
