LIGHTING LOVE

I have lighting on the brain.  It's one of the most important elements we get to play around with when designing a space.  An unforgettable light fixture can set the tone of an entire house.  So obviously it's important to not pull your punches with this. You typically have just one main ceiling fixture in each room...that's ONE perfect chance to wow, rather than bore.
Here are some of the fixtures I selected with my clients for their lovely colonial in Los Feliz.  I hope this tantalized you...I can't wait to show you photos of each of these gorgeous lights in the completed rooms they will be going into!

LIVING ROOM

SHADES OF LIGHT

URBAN OUTFITTERS

Glass Star 24 3/4" Wide Antique Brass Pendant Light
LAMPS PLUS

MASTER BEDROOM
(This one my client's picked themselves and it's just lovely in their bedroom)

VIVATERRA

Hood Polished Nickel, Clear Shade
REJUVENATION

STAIRWELL
A big black lantern similar to this one is planned for the stairwell.  The jury's still out on 
this one, but I'm hoping it makes the cut.  The size of these overscale lanterns can 
be off-putting to clients at first, but they really do create a grand effect!)
Grey and white marble, white molding on top of paneling, an oversized lantern fixture, and a pair of cane side chairs. Perfect.
We're still deciding on an entry fixture, after installing one lantern style that didn't totally work.  And THAT, folks, is the nature of this design animal...it comes as a surprise to some people that it's NOT always a straight shot!
And by the way, I have no qualms at all with mixing metal finishes in a home...keeping it all the same is so old school...let's mix it up and have some fun!   We have brass, polished nickel and chrome, and black wrought iron going on in this house and it all works really well together and creates some much-needed variation.
