When it comes to lighting in general, there really is only one rule — Bigger is better than smaller. Go bold with your selection and make a statement with the jewelry of your room! Both chandeliers and pendants can afford to be large in scale, but especially apply this rule to wall sconces. Wall sconces are not the place to play is safe. Find something that you love and amplify it!
While searching around for interiors with copper lighting, it proved to be more difficult than expected! We found tons of brass (obviously), a fair amount of gold, and all of the other brushed and shiny metals you can think of, but copper was decidedly missing. It’s a metal that is beautiful for its warmth, and it’s also a classic choice, lacking that ‘trend’ characteristic that we see with brass, especially. Working with whatever style you are trying to achieve, that is where the finish of copper comes into play and becomes your best friend — shiny, hammered, rustic, with patina — these all carry different vibes with them, lending themselves to varying styles, time periods, and aesthetics.
Think of sculpture lighting simply as lighting that doubles as art — whether simple, or ornate. Typically these lights do not give off a ton of light in a room, so other lighting around a space is necessary, but be creative! Wall grazing if there is amazing texture, and of course recessed lighting are great ways to infuse more light in your space. And remember that if you have a large-scale installation piece, let it be the star of your room!
Gone are the days of only basic lantern lighting (although we love those, too!). Lantern lighting is a great way to invoke some stylized flair into your space — whether in a dining room, foyer, living room, lantern fixtures really can go anywhere! Lanterns work well in any style interior, but consider the more ornate to be great for eclectic or traditional designs, whereas sleek and simple details lend themselves well to modern and contemporary aesthetics.
