Illuminating Accents: Accent Lighting for A Beautiful Home

Accent lighting draws attention to your home’s most enticing features. By adding chandeliers, sconces, and other illuminating accents, you can create an enticing air of dramatic ambience. Whether entertaining guests or enjoying quiet, romantic moments, you’ll appreciate the way accent lighting enhances your space.

Arranged within the confines of even the simplest hearth, French candlesticks bring sculpted beauty and a warm, romantic feeling to the space where they’re displayed. Beautifully framed photographs serve as the perfect personal touch. Try mirrors with candles too; it’s one of the most traditional methods for making the most of this type of accent lighting.

Mid Century Modern Style

In recent years, Mid Century Modern style has become an increasingly popular style that appeals to a wide audience.

“The design styles of the ‘60s and ‘70s will feature strongly in the 2017 interiors. At this year’s Milan furniture exhibition, the designers influence from the colours, shapes and materials of the mid-century era was clearly evident. The retro vibe won’t be restricted to furniture […]

Designer Mish Chadwick recently welcomed us into her home – a remarkable renovated farmhouse located in Los Gatos, California. When she and her family moved to the Silicon Valley area, the hunt for a new dream home began. Soon, Mish found exactly what she was looking for – an old farmhouse and barn with great bones and good floorplans that wouldn’t require much change, both begging for a makeover. “I loved the character of the home and its little unique rooflines, along with the fact that it looks much older than it actually is,” Mish says.

In the main farmhouse, Mish’s unique […]
