Wall mount light fixtures!
Sometimes it is something so simple and common that can really make a statement in design. Working for a homebuilder, I constantly have to try to find ways to easily incorporate new features that create an impact in a home. I have gotten stuck so many times trying to come up with something unique and bold to help set my designs apart, but sometimes I am making it too difficult. Sometimes the answer is just in a small detail. Lately, my favorite way to add character is through light fixtures – more specifically, wall mount light fixtures! Lighting plays such an important role in setting the style of your home!!
What I love about wall mounts is their flexibility. They can be used in any room of your home, any outdoor area of your home, for general lighting, or for accent lighting. Sometimes they are just used to wash a wall and sometimes they are used to light a space for a specific task. What I love even more is that the light fixtures chosen for your project can add interest to your space through the color, shape, style, etc. Light fixtures are pieces of art so having them on the wall only makes sense.
These goose neck light fixtures are awesome! They serve a function and add something special to this kitchen. I love how they come out over the top of the cabinets and apply more general lighting to the work space. For a vaulted ceiling, layers of lighting are very important. These wall sconces help fill the gap between the highest point of the kitchen where the recessed lighting is located and the work space. They are also so unique and interesting which helps to round out the style of this kitchen.
Love, love, love the simplicity in the photo above. The neutral colors are brought to life through a great mix of textures. Three light fixtures sitting atop three windows adds the perfect amount of jewelry to ensure that this space is anything but boring. Sometimes simple is better. I am typically a fan of oversized light fixtures, but in this case, the small dainty fixtures are the best solution. They add just enough character without stealing the show.
The directional goose neck lights in the photo above are so unexpected and fun! The large scale makes this space quirky. One of my favorite things about oversized fixtures is that they create a focal point and allow you to keep the décor simple elsewhere.
Thin brick and goose neck lighting? This is my dream kitchen! Obviously the photographed space has enough going on that the wall mounts are not the first or only things you notice. However, they still add that last little spark to really tie this room together. I could go on and on about how much I love this kitchen. It strangely looks like it could have been the inspiration for one of my own projects that I plan to share with you soon (stay tuned)!
I think I have made my point so I am going to let the rest of the photos below speak for themselves!!
