Get inspired in 2018! / by Madeleine Roff

It’s the start of a new year, new projects around the home, and New Years Resolutions… so it’s time to get inspired and make a start! We’ll talk you through four different materials and styles to give you some ideas. 

Glass

Glass is such a stylish material at the moment, it’s versatile and perfect for pretty much every room! If your room has a lack of natural light or it’s quite a small space, glass is great as it doesn’t obstruct any views or reduce the amount of natural light the room receives. Another reason we love glass is the luxury yet modern feel it gives, and the ability to add colour to the design is a bonus! 

Mix and match

Mix and match styles are very on-trend, from décor and materials to colours and lights! This style works really well with pendants as a mix of heights can give a very contemporary feel and also plays with the mind to give the effect that there is more space than there actually is. However we’d recommend this style is implemented in a room with high ceilings, or perhaps a larger room in general to have the ability to have multiple pendant lights. You can also mix up the colours which gives you great flexibility and the option to create a real theme in the room – we’ll focus on colour more in a moment! 

Modern

What is modern lighting? To us, it’s bold statements and quirky shapes! For a design to be modern it must be on-trend, so this style is constantly changing. As a designer, unconventional shapes are great fun to work with and it allows us to get very creative and make a real impact on a room. Modern lighting designs have the ability to renovate a dated room which is fantastic for those who don’t want to completely revamp an entire room; by simply investing in one modern lighting design, you can transform and update the entire room! 

A splash of colour

We love colourful lighting designs! If your light is the centerpiece of a room, or you have multiple lights throughout the room, you can create a theme by simply adding colour to your lights! Colour has the ability to complete liven up a room and add some brightness to it, and it also works on a range of shapes and styles so it’s very versatile and works on almost any light design. Also, if it’s just your lighting designs that are coloured, it means in the future you can easily change the feel of the room by replacing the lights for another style or colour – simple!
