tyle means diferent things to diferent people. For
those who embrace a more relaxed aesthetic, that
may mean a touch of romance: cozy rooms, filled with
floral prints and overstufed chairs. But to another person, a
more relaxed style equals a pared-down yet still casual and
refreshing approach to livable rooms.
That dichotomy demonstrates the way that similarly
minded lighting can straddle and enhance diferent
interpretations of the warm, welcoming spaces so common
to many of our rooms. And that style of lighting can
also provide an easy way for homeowners to flex their
personality-driven decorating approaches: a flourish in a
chandelier, an unexpected organic tilt in a pair of sconces.
Use these rooms and these fixtures to gather inspiration for
color, form, and function to best illuminate your own stylish
yet relaxed rooms, whatever they may be.
HEIGHT HELP Standard 8-foot
ceilings work best with a 24-inch
chandelier. Higher ceiling? Add
about 3 inches of fixture height
for every extra foot of ceiling
height. Voyager, Quoizel
