When it comes to splurging on fabulous designer lighting, we're guilty as charged. Let’s face it, sometimes you have to indulge yourself to get the high-end look you want. But we aren’t label-snobs – especially with lighting. It isn’t like you get cool-bonus points for a brand name light, so why not save if there’s a quality look-alike? We see it market-after-market, a designer knocks it out of the park with a new design. Inevitably it sets a new trend, and we see other manufacturers do their versions of that trend. It’s our job to stay on top of all of the options out there so that we can give you expert advice on when to spend and when to save if necessary. For example, let’s say you love the Darlana Lantern by Visual Comfort in antique brass. We’d def tell you to go-for-it because no one has a prettier antique brass than Visual Comfort. BUT, if you like Visual Comfort’s Darlana in polished nickel, we may suggest the Stanton Pendant. Similar look, way better price. See, don’t sacrifice quality or style. But save when you can. Intrigued? We thought so. Now let us introduce you to our Stylish Steals "It List".

Home design with mixed metal lighting is my happy place. Do me a favor, pick up that outdated "rule book" of sticking with a single metal finish and throw it out the window (figuratively speaking- no littering please). The way I see it, a lot of design rules are made to be broken. Case in point: check out the stainless appliances paired with brass and bronze geometric pendant lights below- so amaze!
Two-toned metal fixtures add more personality, warmth and dimension to your space. Plus, it gives you two finish options to work with when it comes to other lights in your home- you gotta love that.
Try a bronze and brass orb chandelier in your foyer, or multiple industrial glass shade pendants with brass and graphite accents over your kitchen island. Or my personal fave, a mixed metal open cage linear chandelier over your rectangular dining table (so fab).
Don't you love a good mood board? I'm super visual, so mood boards always help me when designing and making decisions. Speaking of decisions, we're working on lighting suggestions for a precious baby boy's new nursery and we need your help. Which would you pick: Option 1 with the Antique Silver Layla Chandelier or option 2 with the Metal Band and Wood Bead Chandelier?
