Trend Alert


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 Do me a favor, pick up that outdated "rule book" of sticking with a single metal finish and throw it out the window (figuratively speaking- no littering please).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.


Hinkley Lighting Fulton Linear Chandelier in Brass and Bronze in Dining Room


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).

I’m a look your best and you’ll feel better, give it your all or go home type of girl. Who also may or may not suffer from a slight sushi addiction. If you know someone who’s annoyingly obsessed with gorgeous interiors, I’m probably worse. My favorite interior style would def have to be Mid-Century Modern, but I’m still a girly-girl at heart so a dash of glitz makes me swoon. I’m a boy mom and resident of Fort Worth, TX but my heart lives in the Rockies (who doesn’t love Colorado, right?), and if traveling was free you’d never see me again. I believe that you can never fail at something you're passionate about and that challenges are really opportunities if you have the right mindset (so stay positive!).
