Art Deco Lighting

Art Deco lighting has been gaining in popularity for several years, and this year will likely see many homeowners install the style in their houses. The gold and bronze colors of Art Deco fixtures can bring a certain warmth to a room, and can pair wonderfully with hardwood floors, new kitchen cabinets made of darker wood, and more.

Incorporate Natural Materials

Natural materials and their colors and textures are quickly finding their way into interior design. When it comes to lighting, there are lamps and chandeliers that incorporate wood, wicker, and other natural materials, bringing the outside world inside your home. Natural-inspired lighting always works well with more organic decor and furniture that has wood or earthen tones, and you can create the ideal relaxation space inside your home.

Contrasting Colors

You may not have a particular lighting style in mind, but you do know that you want to bring contrast to a certain space inside your home. Perhaps the wall colors are lighter, and introducing a dark light fixture can add some drama to the room. On the opposite side, a light-colored fixture will stand out within a darker room.

How Lighting Affects Color

It’s important to think about how your new lighting will affect the colors inside a room. Whether a space has a natural shade, or the pinks, greens, or blues that will be popular this year, it’s essential to consider how light will play off each hue.

Darker colors tend to absorb light, while lighter colors reflect it. You don’t want all the light in a room to disappear when you flip the switch, and the type of bulbs you use will play a big part, as will the color temperature of each bulb.

Find New Lighting

At Hortons, we love helping people discover the perfect lighting for their home. If you’re looking for fixtures of a certain color, or you want a sconce or pendant that will work within a space of a specific color, we can provide expert assistance.
