Lighting is an important part of building and decorating a home that can sometimes get overlooked. The correct lighting can make or break the feel of the room. There are many different directions you can go with selecting a lighting fixture. The first way is to select one according to the colors of your larger, more permanent furniture such as hutches, cabinetry, or couches. If your room consists of bold colors, you can really lean into that with a stained-glass fixture. This way you can keep those colors going throughout your décor, but keep it structured with the clean-cut glass. If the stained glass makes the space feel too crowded, a modern monochrome fixture could be better for you. These lights come in various shapes, sizes, and colors, but aren’t so complex that they become a distraction.

Another method is to select something based on the décor you already have. This homeowner owned a stunning crystal fish hanging so they chose medium-sized crystal light fixtures to hang around it to meld it all together. Above the dining table, there is a chandelier hung in the same style as the individual hangings above the kitchen island. The golden metal to hold the fixture to the ceiling matches the hardware in the kitchen such as the faucet and handles. No matter how this home is decorated these lights will make the room look timeless.
