If there is one place to make a WILD statement with lighting, it’s probably over the dining room table. It’s one of those moments in the home that begs for a little something outrageous. As we begin to decorate our dining room, I’m thinking about what direction to go in for that very statement. Above you can see some of our choices thus far for the room. We are using our Aja Wallpaper in aubergine which is super bold, but (kind of oddly), since it has so many gold tones, it feels like a bold neutral the same way that metallics can work as neutrals.
The rug we’re using, which is from my Fable collection with Loloi Rugs (available here and here) and it has those same earthy tones and gold as well, giving the room almost a safari feel. So when it comes to the lighting, I think I want something with a bit of gold as well, and something that can make the room feel jungalow-chic!! Here are some of my picks:
I love the modern feel of (#1) and (#7). I love the Moroccan orb (#8) but I’m afraid it’s not big enough to make a BIG visual impact. (#6) is kinda perfect, but it’s not in our budget. (#4) is funky and I love the nod to the cactus shape. Which style/shape do you think would work best?
You can find all of my lighting picks on my favorites page over on our partners’ site Chairish and also discover some of my other vintage favorites of the moment!
