    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.

    Add a little elegant drama to your bedroom with a modern chandelier. Here's some pretty ideas...

    Modern chandelier in an eclectic bedroom.

    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.

  • Stylish Master Bedroom Ideas

    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...

    Master bedroom with chic lighting.

    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.

    Master bedroom with gallery wall.

    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.
