The holidays are almost here! So how will you light your favorite holiday spaces to create a warm and cheerful home? And we’re talking more than adding string twinkle lights — we’re talking lighting your dining room, kitchen, bathroom, living room: any room you want to dress to impress holiday guests.
Our advice? Make a statement with new light fixtures. Here are a few of our favorites, and, best of all, they are on sale for Black Friday and Cyber Monday at many lighting showrooms and e-commerce sites.
A Welcoming Front Entrance
Begin by welcoming guests with the Watch Hill One-light Hanging Lantern finished in classic black. The lantern offers a timeless style inspired by Victorian-era gaslight fittings. Still, its seeded glass shade and traditional textured black finish on a stylized open cage design bring an updated look that says there’s no place like home for the holidays.
Dining Room Celebrations
Shine a spotlight on a festive holiday table with the right dining room fixtures that epitomize your home’s design style. For lovers of farmhouse style, we suggest the Hedgerow Linear Chandelier. Its softly textured, artistic fax wood frame in a classic windowpane design is coated in a gray-washed oak finish. Beautiful, brushed nickel accents elevate the typically farmhouse aesthetic to one of urban sophistication. Lovers of transitional style will want the elegant Drum Shade Chandelier, whose simple lines are refreshed with finely formed arms that curve upwards to clasp a Harvest linen drum shade.
Kitchen: The Home’s Heart
The heart of the home is the kitchen – especially during the holidays. Gather the family around the island to do some holiday baking or present wrapping under the light of the Atwell pendant. Place two, three or more of these statement-making pendants over an island or long table. Finished in trendy Matte Black with a crisp, clear globe shade, Atwell brings a modern edge while illuminating holiday tasks and celebrations.
Remember to extend the festive vibe into the guest bathroom if you are hosting visitors during the holidays. New lighting in the bath can give the room an unexpected “wow” factor that guests will love. We recommend the Aiken three-light vanity bar, whose subtle, vintage brass finish coupled with clear glass shades bring a luxe look to the bathroom. Or try a pair of Adley one-light wall sconces on either side of the mirror. Adley is finished in a statement-making black, with an elegantly curved backplate attached to a simple, clear glass shade.
