Vintage items of all kinds are popular in home decor, but no other sector of design has more choices than lighting. Whether they are truly vintage, repurposed fixtures, or reproductions, vintage lighting is taking center stage in living rooms and kitchens everywhere. Even within the vintage home decor trend, there is a wide range of how old the fixtures appear.
The easiest way to create more storage space is to make decor pieces do double duty, and this concept is growing among the current home decor trends. If rustic is not your style, there are options for storage as decor in almost any type of look.
Moving away from dark and heavy traditional furniture, todays home decor trends are using lighter tones to let the wood grain show. Weathered, rustic wood as well as more finely polished pieces are popular in family rooms, kitchens and bedrooms.
It might be one of the last things people think about in a home, lighting, however, is critical to a pleasant environment. Generally, bad lighting equals bad design. Relying on one source of lighting like a ceiling fixture is never a good idea. Different types of lighting need to have different purposes: task lighting, ambient lighting and general lighting. Evaluating a space and deciding on what type of lighting it needs is an important design decision. In addition to a ceiling fixture, a room needs mid-level lighting for warmth and tasks like reading. Some spaces way benefit from ambient lighting that helps create a mood. Accent lights are important for highlighting special accessories or art. and, regardless of how many different types you incorporate, placement is also important. Making sure that lighting casts the proper shadows is vital to effective illumination and remember, dimmer switches are your best friend.
