When building a house, I think the two most important things to spend your money on is lighting and cabinets. If you do that, your house WILL have so much character. I wanted to give you a sneak peek of the lighting that we used in this home...there are some fun and different ideas. This home is almost ready to move in to, but we are just waiting on the finishing touches...and for it to get clean! Then the fun part begins and we can decorate!
This is the entrance to the courtyard...these lights worked out great and they match the rod iron gate and contrast with the stone perfectly.
Kitchen Lighting...we used the vintage filament bulbs in the pendant lights over the bar and it added the perfect touch!
This square light is going above the kitchen table
This chandelier hanging in the family room is a little bit SCI FI, but oh how I love it!
The entry light is a filament chandelier with four bulbs...once again we used the vintage bulbs here too.
Master Bedroom Hanging Lights...I did this little technique in every bedroom of this house because it is so convenient to have a light switch next to your bed and the hanging light acts as a lamp. I will put end tables under each light.
This master bathroom is small, so I had to come up with some fun ideas to make it pop. This idea of hanging lights in a bathroom adds so much character, without having to spend a lot of extra money.
These are the side lamp hanging lights for the pink and gray girls bedroom...the chain still needs to come down a bit, but other than that I love them!
Most of these lights you can get at Restoration Hardware, but I worked with Kay at Kay's TLC Lighting in St. George and she got them for half the price. She is absolutely fantastic to work with and always spends so much time to help me get the look that I am going for! If you are in need of lighting, you can contact her at 435.628.6474.
