Today we are discussing one of the most important design necessities, which is often overlooked in home decor… lighting! We need it to function, but often consider it to be a detail. With lighting I have found more often than not, you get what you pay for. Discount lighting can be tempting, but investing in quality pieces that are classic, well designed and suited to the character of your house can make a huge difference.
Rejuvenation is the perfect place to find an amazing variety of inspired and reproduced lighting fixtures. Every time the Rejuvenation catalog arrives in my mailbox (get your own here), I set it aside and wait until my chores are finished to crack it open with a cup of tea. Almost everything is customizable, from mixing and matching shades and bases, cord length, bulb options, metal finishes and more. For someone like me, that has a vision before I shop, it’s amazing to have options. Their customer service department is super knowledgeable and happy to help you find just the right piece for your home if you aren’t sure where to start.
Our home was built in the late 1800’s but has a “modern” addition that was added in most likely, the 1950’s. We have taken queues from many eras when selecting not only furniture, but fixtures. Our eclectic style consists schoolhouse style fixtures, danish mid-century and some industrial details. Over the years, we have been replacing all of the lighting to fit the era of our house and the furniture. Here are my picks our home…
- LIVING ROOM | Medium Mid-Century Wooden Table Lamp: We have a ceiling fixture in our living room to provide function, but a table lamp is just the thing to create a cozy atmosphere in the evening. This mid-century inspired lamp coordinates with our vintage pieces and gives some height to our side table. And of course I adore those brass details.
- DINING ROOM | Haleigh Wire Dome Pendant: The dining room is a great place to let your lighting be the star. This pendant is a little out of the box, but I think in our deep slate dining room it would really shine (see what I did there… shine… hah.). One would be enough in our small space, but in a larger dining room, a row of these would be so stunning.
- BATHROOM | Thurman Wall Sconce: Since our bathroom is pretty small, I tend to keep things clean, simple and functional. These sconces are just right to fit on either side of the mirror and give off tons of soft, evenly dispersed light. To match my sink hardware, I selected a bright chrome finish.
- BEDROOM | Linnton Wall Sconce: It’s always been a dream of mine to have sconces flanking our bed. It makes the room feel custom and cozy. These mid-century sconces with brass details would coordinate beautifully with our existing furniture and would cast the perfect soft light while you wind down for a restful night of sleep.
- KITCHEN | Jefferson Classic Flush Ceiling Fixture: We have low ceilings in the kitchen, so a flush ceiling fixture is a must. A classic schoolhouse style lamp is perfect to add functional light to the whole space. Over the sink I would do something coordinating, like the George Single Pole Pendant.
