When designing a space, lighting is a key factor that can make or break the overall look and feel. The right lighting choices can enhance and complement the architectural style of your home. In this post, we’ll explore lighting ideas tailored to popular interior design styles.

  • Mason jar pendants and wall sconces
  • Candle-style LED bulbs in lantern fixtures

  • Recessed LED downlights
  • Track lighting
  • Large orb-shaped or domed overhead fixtures
  • Adjustable lamp arms instead of traditional floor/table lamps
  • Smart bulbs that offer color changing options
