Trend Spotting with BHG: Lighting Overscale
Big is beautiful! Embrace the trend of large-scale lighting fixtures.
I'm seeing lots of large-scale lighting and table lamps and an overhead fixtures. I love the look of a big pendant hung over a kitchen island. I just recently installed a beautiful large-scale glass fixture-- so it is that sort of industrial, scientific trend-- over my dining room table. And it is beautiful. It is a glass cloche, and I sprayed the inside with mercury glass spray paint to give it that kind of sparkle and femininity that didn't come from just the plain glass fixture. And there's a special bulb in there. It's called an Edison bulb. So, it looks like that early light bulb that's clear, and you can see the filament. It is just such a chic look and so beautiful.
