Modern Lighting // Home Decor

Everyone’s home style is different and yet it seems modern decor is creeping into everyone’s homes in one way or another, especially in lighting. While my home is more of a shabby chic design, I am drawn over and over to modern lighting and geometric shaped lamps and gold and copper tones. I can just see an excuse to redecorate a room rising.

Hang Lighting:

Hanging lamps are on trend now and the modern options are absolutely endless. I have selected these fourย whichย I think I could really incorporate into my existing home decor. I would love my breakfast bar to have these gold ones in the bottom left hand corner. I think they are just stunning. If you know me or my blog long you will know I am in love with grey, yellow and white combination of anything so the bottom right ones are lush. I could put anyone of these in my home. Just changing your lighting can really change a look of a room and can even be your main focal point if you are brave enough to get trendy and modern.

Desk Lamps:

I have longed for a dream office and aย space to call my own. One day I will get there until then I have been drooling over what I would want that space to look like and especially these gorgeous desk lamps. The first top one is by far my most favorite. I envision a desk quite similar to the one it stands on. A lamp can really add color and design to a desk. I have always leaned towards an all white desk too so vibrant funky lamps are a must to pull the design together. I can spend hours on pinterest just peering over various lightings.

Floor Lamps:

I never used to have floor lamps in my home. I guess because I really never had a use for them. It was something that I started looking for when I started decorating our new house so that I could cozy up and read a book without the main light being on. Maybe it was a turning 30 kind of home decor item, I am not too sure. I love copper and gold tones and I think next to white walls they can really pop as well as add funkiness to a room. They are so many various designs depending on what you would use it for and what room it will go in. It could be for your hallway next to a sideboard or next to you on the sofa. I think with a floor lamp the more modern and funky the better no one wants to be reminded of Grandma’s old lamp shade in the corner!

Do you like modern lighting? Follow my pinterest board below or leave a comment on which style of lamp is your favorite, as I will be looking and pinning more soon would love to know what you think.

  1. I was having a sneak peek at your lighting picks on Pinterest earlier – loving having you in my feed! I’m looking for ceiling lights for our hallway and lounge at the moment but we have a very old house and I’m not sure modern would work. Love some of your ideas though! x

    • Sometimes that is what works old meets new. Maybe try modern but rustic vibe so it matches. Hallways can be revamped into anything. Thanks for following me on pinterest. I could seriously get lost in there.

    • Thank you so much. Sometimes I can make better mood boards than putting it all together in my own home especially as I have two little ones I can’t do much yet. Hahaha gathering ideas for the future.

  3. I actually love the lighting you have chosen! I too have a thing for lighting and I am just about to actually sign a sales agreement with a lighting company to sell their home products. I will send you some pictures when I have.. Good post! Love it!

    • Thanks. I am a huge fan and would love to change some of the lighting we have going on in this house. Sounds like a good contract to sign up with for home products. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    • I am the same until the kids are a bit older and stop breaking everything I can’t really go mad with it just yet. But I am dreaming with all of these and more on my pinterest board. A girl can hope!

  4. I love modern lighting so much – we have Boundary mill near us with a whole modern lighting outlet. We love just wondering through it all. Sadly we’ve reached the point where we can put no more lighting in our house without it looking like some very trendy club ๐Ÿ™‚

    Reply
    • Hahah I like the trendy club idea made me chortle. I am always heading to the lighting section of stores first. Love it. I would love more natural lighting in my house too. One day my forever home will just be all windows!!!!

      Reply
    • Yes I am itching to redecorate something although I have only just finished all the rooms in the house. lol I told my husband we need to move hahaha It would be hard for me to choose too! Love them all.

  5. Love these lamps – the top right desk lamps I think are my favourite. I tend to go for spot lighting in the ceiling rather than making lighting a feature in my home (my littlies are too into climbing at the moment for me to want to brave desk lamps just yet!) but we’re hoping to start putting together our study soon so will have to check out your board for some ideas for lighting in there ๐Ÿ™‚

    Reply
    • Mine too, I would definitely have to wait until my two are bigger before I start getting trendy with feature lighting and lamps but I love to dream of these. Thanks.

      Reply
    • Oh I do love a big statement chandelier for sure. We have a large one that hangs from upstairs to downstairs and it’s my favorite too! I think I would just have lighting everywhere all the time.

  6. Ooo there’s lots of yummy things on there! I love the yellow grey and white one! There’s a gorgeous hanging light tin the lighting shop I walk past regularly. It has little mini shades all the way round in all different colours! It is so gorgeous but I can’t afford it hehe! #sharewithme

    Reply
    • Oh me too, I am very fond of anything yellow, grey and white, if you couldn’t tell by my blog. It’s nice to dream through the window shop sometimes too though! Sounds lovely.

  7. I’ve always loved pendant lights, although funnily enough, we don’t have any at home! Hopefully that will change soon ๐Ÿ˜‰ #sharewithme

    • I know me too. I have always loved them but yet to put them with my decor. Trying to do that now as they are so trendy this season. Especially golds and copper ones.

  8. Ooo this was perfect timing for me as we’re about to move house and I’ll be needing some inspiration for lighting in our new home! Thanks for sharing and I’ll be popping over to your Pinterest board for more nosey-ing ๐Ÿ™‚

    Reply
  9. I love these choices! They’ve popped up in my pinterest feed as well and I’ve been fonding over them since. I think I would have to agree with you and pick the lamp for the office as my favorite. I love that whole room, actually. With the white dress, the gorgeous paper latern backdrop and that clear lacquer chair–it’s very modern and chic at the same time! Thanks for these choices!

    Reply
    • Oh yes I couldn’t agree more Maria. I want the entire room for sure. It’s stunning and my dream office. I don’t have a work space really so would love an entire office. Lol greedy I know.

  10. You’ve picked some fab and very trendy lamps and lights here hon. We have a very funky lightshade in our house downstairs and I love it. Would like more but am loathe to spend tons of money on fixtures and fittings until we are in our own home ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. A love the desk lamp with the geometric base. It’s such a unique piece. I never really gave much thought to lighting, but it really is a simple way to transform the look of a room.

    Reply
  12. Love these, especially the copper ones! We have been looking for a decent one in our dining room for a while so will def be checking those out. Also completely agree having floor lamps is an over 30 thing – I never had one until recently!

    Reply
    • Hahaha it really is. Glad I am not the only one. 30 changes so much in our lives. Lol The copper ones are my favorite. I love a good pendant lighting for dining rooms.

      Reply
  13. Those are great pics! I can’t wait to get to a point where I can choose the things I surround myself with in my home, rather than going with whatever we wind up with through hand-me downs and gifts!

  15. I like the metal frame hanging light particularly. The only problem with hanging lights is not forgetting that they are there. I’m always banging my head on then one in our dining room, if I happen to lean over to pass something to someone on the other side!

  16. Quite a timely post Jenny as I’m just about to purchase 15 lights for our apartment in France! Oh it’s a minefield. Love those copper hanging lights in the top pic though – perfect over a table ๐Ÿ™‚

    Reply
  17. I LOVE those copper hanging lights! They wouldn’t go in my house unfortunately but I do still love them! I recently got myself a floor lamp, similar to the arch one in your picks. I love it, just adds interest to a room doesn’t it?

    • I think so. Bet it looks lovely. I am the same the copper ones wouldn’t go in my house but i am desperately trying to think how I could make them fit. Hahaha

    • Wouldn’t that be nice. I would love an office that’s full of light and space that I can decorate and organize to call my own. I peer over pinterest in dreams of it one day happening. Lol

  18. I absolutely love those gold pendant lights for the kitchen. They’d look fantastic over an island. Really enjoyed this post. Thanks for hosting lovely. I hope you get the home office you desire and deserve soon honey. xx

    • Thanks Louise. It’s so hard to choose which ones I want and where to put them that will make them pop and be focal points. I just am day dreaming on pinterest lately.

      Reply
    • I have been doing the same, going around my house looking at what lighting I can change and it almost makes a whole room feel new again. Glad you like. Thank you.

  19. I love this style of lighting, especially the big, metal pendant lamps. I want one or two for the kitchen but my husband is attached to the spotlights, it’s a battle! I would love a home office too, what a luxury! X

    Reply
    • A home office would definitely be my ideal heaven. My husband is the same with the spotlights and in our next house I said I will get to choose lighting as he got it in this house. Now I keep telling him I want to move. hahaha

  20. Lucas says – Some of those lights are really cool. The Mother would live in a traditional country cottage. She likes things to look really traditional. #sharewithme

  21. I am loving the set of kitchen lights in the first set of pictures. I love a more traditional look but sometimes with a retro twist and these are right up my street. Love interior design and some of these ideas are lovely ๐Ÿ™‚ #sharewithme

    • Thank you so much Cathy so sweet of you. I am the same my home is very traditional then with retro corky pieces thrown in the mix just to catch people off guard. lol

  22. Love these pics!

    Going to bookmark this page for when we eventually move out of rental and buy our own house. Might help me show my husband what I have in mind as he has zero appreciation for lamps (he’d live under floodlights if he could!).

    • Ahh good luck when you move I love moving. I keep saying I want to move too just so I can redecorate. My hubby has zero appreciation for any home decor I just decorate while he is at work or golfing. lol Half the time doesn’t notice. lol

  24. I’ve loved the wire pendants for ages but found them to be really costly. Hopefully now that they’re gaining some popularity there will be some most affordable versions on the high street so I can buy one yay!

    Reply
    • I think the price will start to come down on them as they get more and more popular and other shops start carrying them. I would love to have them in my house.
