Lavish Lighting

Unusual light fixtures is one of those luxuries that completely MAKES a room. I have a serious lighting wishlist for my own house. Only 2 of which have been fulfilled since we moved in. The closet and the guest bedroom. Next up, kitchen island and bedroom.

Here are some spaces that are everything because of their lighting

This would be so boring without those bubbles, don't you think?

Sort of looks like this fixture, but adorned with vines and flowers. So romantical.

Seen this before and I LOVE it. A softer more feminine sputnik.

My fantasy light fixture. Seriously. Insanity.
Don't even know what to say. Its just good.
 Do you have a light fixture that is #1 on your wish list? Am I insane for writing this passionately about lighting? (don't answer that one)

  4. I really love the first three. I hate that a great light fixture seems to be the biggest part of my budget and always gets left for the end (read: never) of the purchase list. I'm going to start saving my pennies now for a new pretty in my living room!

  5. Absolutely not! :) I love a stunning light fixture (like in room #3) but I think ultimately what I love more is a room where natural light pours in through large, open windows.

  11. Lighting was my number one extravagance when I built my home. I posted my most beloved fixture on my blog a few weeks back. It is the Bocci pendant, kind of reminiscent of the first image you posted.

    Your selections are stunning!

  14. That first one in the otherwise traditional kitchen is great looking...but they are all beautiful the one with the candles is really neat too, probably doesn't give off a lot of light but it sure is pretty!

  21. Two words...Serge Mouille- would die a hundred deaths for one of his beauties and totally agree with you, lighting completely transforms a space- gorgeous examples of that here!!

  22. Honestly, I'm pretty sure the list is too long for in the comments section! And you are so right on...the lighting can completely *make* the entire room! The ones I usually swoon over have shine or *sparklies*...I'm pretty much a magpie...

  23. You know lighting is my current dilemma right now. I've spent hours trying to find something to replace the bubble chandy with. Thanks for this inspiration!

  24. the feathered one from jayson home & garden is on the top of mine. but seriously unobtainable... :(

  25. nonsense, lighting and hardware make a room. And maybe pattern and color... either which way I love an awesome fixture over the island. So curious to see what you choose!
