Light Up the Space You Live in With a Splash of French Inspiration!

April 19, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 269

Interior designers, more often than not, recognise lighting as a crucial part of any room. It is important to realise this too when looking to revamp or change up the atmosphere of our homes. If starting from a blank canvas why not try planning your lighting arrangement first? This will enable your chosen space to maximise its lighting potential and bring out the beauty of all the furniture that surrounds it. Depending on your room of choice there are many different lighting fixtures to suit all tastes, but remember to keep gorgeous French style in mind! This article aims to give help and advice on what lighting has to offer today and where to situate in the home.

French styled chandeliers are on the market nowadays in a large range of different styles and different price brackets. They are fantastic for creating a centrepiece in many areas of the home and can truly transform the room of choice into something beautiful. Very on trend at the moment are spherical crystal chandeliers with antique brass or pewter finishes. The function of all the individually tied crystals is that light can refract and bounce into areas you never thought possible, giving a whole new feel to the room! If space is not an issue then definitely try arranging these particular pieces in groups of three, this is sure to enhance your hallway or dining room to new inspiring levels. The more classically decorated chandeliers are still popular at present with ten and fifteen armed pieces looking as spectacular as before. Lanterns that feature as ceiling lights look very slick with the combination of chrome and intricate lighting fixtures, but still retain that French charm suited to your home.

For less of a bold impact delve into the world of French side lamps. These are brilliant for placing on an elegant side table and can wonderfully complement the rest of your sumptuous furniture. The living room or bedroom benefits the most with the introduction of multiple side lamps. These can help create a soft and relaxing setting. Beautifully carved lamp bases are perfect for rooms aspiring for a more feminine touch whilst ones with splashes of chrome and nickel suit the more masculine areas. Don't be afraid to customise the shades of your favourite side lamps, this allows for more personalisation and will convey your specific taste more fluidly. Glass designs are great for rooms with more neutral tones as they have the ability to situate themselves more subtly. Varying widely, there are lots of shapes within this style to suit everyone.

For a brilliant selection of French style lighting visit Sweetpea and Willow, the online French furniture boutique.
