Five Lighting Secrets that will Brighten Any Space — – Chandeliers
Lighting Style: Statement eye candy, wood-beaded chandelier, oversized
This two-toned kitchen needed some more wood tones to balance out the large wooden table.
In this case, the wood-beaded chandelier is perfect. It feels beachy, it’s weighty enough to not be overwhelmed by the table, and it evokes just a touch of paradise in this space.
PRO TIP: This situation brings up the question of when to subtly mimic your design (as done here) and when to go in another direction (like in the “contrast lighting” example above).
Here’s the answer. Ask yourself… without the lighting, is my scene in harmony? In the previous dining room, yes — without the chandelier, the room feels like it’s missing something, but the design still works.
In this space, without the wooden chandelier, the table and the kitchen cabinets look like they could belong to two entirely different spaces. This is when you need another element to bring the two together!
Mimicry is your answer.
