  • Get the Look: Living Room Ceiling Lighting

    • 0 Comments

    Ceiling Lighting

    Clients always ask whether or not they should invest in ceiling lighting for their living room – I personally think it’s a must. It’s just as important as dining room lighting. A statement chandelier or pendant that centers the room will make the room and you can plan furniture around the lighting you choose.

    Industrial Pendant Light

    Possini Euro Arlo 15 3/4" Wide Chrome Pendant Light

    Try something different, a modern chandelier set against traditional furniture can completely update a room. If that doesn’t strike your fancy and you want a touch of glam in your life but nothing over the top, choose a chandelier like the Robert Abbey version at the bottom.

    There are hundreds of directions you can go in and I’ve rounded up four that have been popular amongst clients recently.

    Minimal Chandelier

    Chrome Modern Industrial LED 56 1/2-Inch-H Chandelier

    Rustic Pendant

    Orbital Weave 19 1/2" Wide Rust Metal Pendant Light

    Modern Chandelier

    Bling Collection Convertible Robert Abbey Chandelier

    Whether you go for traditional, industrial or modern – overhead lighting is a choice you should make for your living room.

  • High/Low: Bedside Lighting

    Bedside Lighting

    My husband and I recently moved to New York City, and we're waiting for our apartment to be ready for move in later in July. The suspense is killing me -- not only because I'm ready to be settled, but the best part is yet to come: the decorating!

    Modern Bedroom

    In the master bedroom, we're lucky enough that the room is just big enough to fit our prized king size bed. However, there won't be much room on either side for large nightstands, so we're looking at saving space by purchasing some kind of small side table, and using wall mounted lights to provide symmetry and nighttime lighting. Little did I know, there are so many options out there!

    White Bedroom

    Lighting is one of those things that can put a big dent in your budget if you let it. Looking around, I've found some pricey options, and similar looks that ESL sells for a fraction of the price. Which of these high/lows picks do you prefer? The pharmacy lamp is my particular favorite!

    Outfit to Interior

    Modern Kitchen

    Sometimes black and white are all you need. The striking contrast of the two color extremes is at once both sophisticated, modern, and clean. Our Ms. thinks it's an impossible to mess up fashion and decor solution!

    Modern Pendant

    When relying on such a stark contrast, shape becomes everything. This Planet Chrome and Black Possini Euro Pendant Chandelier has a strikingly eye-catching metal framework on a sizable 31 1/2" wide scale. Ms. Black & White loves showcasing it in her entry area to set the scene.

    The corner of the living room won't be ignored with this Holtkoetter Satin White and Satin Nickel Tripod Floor Lamp. This beauty boasts a hand-blown satin white glass shade and a dimming system to help set the mood.

    Modern Table Lamp

    Mercury glass is lovely, but black Mercury glass can take a room to another level of sophistication. Ms. Black & White loves the unique look of the Modern Flynn Mercury Black Table Lamp with it's Reactive finish glass body.

    A bold black and white pattern, like this Bold Black Stripe Brushed Nickel Triple Pendant,  can make any piece downright show-stopping! By hanging this light fixture over her dining table, our Ms. adds a pop of interest in an unexpected place.

    Modern White Desk

    This Typhoon Contemporary White Desk with its clean, modern lines would be equally at home in the office or the foyer as a table. Perfect for Ms. Black & White to organize her mail and keys!

    Modern Ceiling Fan

    One of the sleekest ceiling fans she's ever seen, Ms. Black & White couldn't resist adding a little airflow to her living room with the 3-blade Casa Metro LED Energy Efficient Matte Black Ceiling Fan!

    The double shade on the Possini Euro Nickel Double Drum White Ceiling Light diffuses the best light. Our Ms. loves the way it casts a glow in her hallway.

  • Hotel Design: Andaz Amsterdam's Fairy Tale Design

    • 0 Comments

    Hotel Design

    The Andaz Amsterdam was designed by hotel design extraordinaire Marcel Wanders. The Dutch designer infused an old library situated on the "Prince Canals" of Amsterdam with whimsy and cultural character of the surrounding upscale community.  

    Modern Art

    Modern Guest Bathroom

    Bold graphics and sculptural furniture are paired together throughout the hotel to create some jaw dropping spaces. Each room is like a gallery of modern art.

    Modern Guest Bedroom

    Bold colors and strong lines contrast beautifully with the crisp white linens. Incorporating color is always a great way to add that final splash of character. It's like a cherry on top! Add some to your home with colorful pendant lighting!

    Light and sculpture create a very dynamic statement. You can create this wow factor in your own home with the selection of the perfect sculptural floor lamp.

    This light installation blows our minds! It's the perfect combination of a modern crystal chandelier and modern art.

    It's always a great feeling to walk off the street when traveling and into a fairy tale setting. This is exactly what happens inside Andaz Amsterdam.
