Sometimes, complicated is better. Like when it comes to kitchen lighting... Go ahead, mix it up and complicate things.
The kitchen above somehow mixes up everything and still creates a clean, modern space. The key is maintaining a consistent and neutral color palette.
Nothing matches, but they relate.The dining chairs are all mixed up, but they relate with a rustic vibe. Same with the mixed, modern lighting.
While nothing outshines the skylight and abundant natural light, this modern kitchen also does an amazing job with lighting.
Inside, there's bold black pendant lighting. This home also has a beautiful extension off the kitchen which provides another lighting opportunity. The rustic wall lights work well with the overall design.
Would you consider a table lamp in the kitchen? According to this modern kitchen above, maybe you should....
The mix between modern table lamps and pendant lights make a perfect pair for any space.

Add a little elegant drama to your bedroom with a modern chandelier. Here's some pretty ideas...
While there are eclectic elements to this modern bedroom above, the interesting and modern chandelier provides a gorgeous 'wow' factor.
This space above works so well because the large chandelier relates perfectly to the rusty color palette. It's ok to go big and oversized, but make sure both the style and color (or material) work well with the rest of the room.
You don't have to go over-sized to make a statement. This delicate chandelier works well in this simple, small bedroom.
This crystal chandelier style dresses up a simple, modern bedroom. It works really well against the rustic, exposed brick. Don't forget to use what you already have to design your space.
This Scandinavian-style bedroom above features a chandelier so small you don't even see it. But, you do. And it's gorgeous.
When you're working with crystals, you don't need much to add elegance. This super-small chandelier looks great agains that grey wall with rustic floors beneath.

You feel tired at the end of the day, which is why the design of your master bedroom is so important. Finish your day right...
One way to step up your master bedroom design is with a 'wow' factor chandelier. If you want to add personality to chic, then mix up your lighting...
While not expected, a stylish floor lamp is a great option for bedside. They take less space and look cool.
Usually, gallery walls take up a centered space on any given wall, or an entire wall, but why not create an asymmetrical design with your art?
This bedroom above does a nice job achieving a relaxed look while still keeping it clean and modern.
Keep your bedroom even more relaxed by keeping it cool with a breezy modern ceiling fan. A white fan would fit perfectly in this room.
A space not centered around the bed is just as important to consider. Not only do you see the rest of the room every time you're in bed, but it's also more functional to have multiple places to relax.
An industrial style floor lamp is paired perfectly with a modern lounge chair, fitting that corner nicely.

Whether you just moved or are planning to move, step up your curb appeal with lighting. Here's some ideas for you...
The architecture above is stunning, but that doesn't mean lighting the way isn't important...
Close to ceiling lights are great when you don't want to interrupt the surrounding design.
Party lights are so versatile, including adding some style to your front entrance.
While the cluster of pots and adorable architecture raise the level of curb appeal for this home, the party lights provide a great detail.
Don't forget the side of the house! The lighting and small details are important on the side of the house as well, even if you can't see it from the street...

Below are a few, fun industrial interior design ideas, whether you're looking for a "hint" of the style or full makeover.
Square subway tile in a modern style kitchen
You can never go wrong with subway-style tile, especially in a kitchen. The square white tiles paired with black grout creates a clean and modern industrial aesthetic.
Mini pendant lights with style, like the ones above with tangled wires, and subway tiles as a backdrop takes the industrial interior design style in this kitchen even one step further.
Mixed materials in a modern dining room
Mix up your materials in the dining room, like this fun space above. The rustic wood table and metal chairs make a great industrial style setting.
Notice the subway tiles again, along with the mini pendants. But it's the colors and textures in this space that should get the real spotlight.
Farmhouse style pendant lighting
If you don't want color, that's ok. Keep your space monochromatic with lots of neutral linens. The linen adds texture, especially when paired with lots of surrounding wood, like the space above.
Industrial style farmhouse lighting is perfect for high ceilings, like the one above.
You can add all of the elements mentioned above, or just one to create an industrial aesthetic in your own home.
