Heather Blue-Harkovich of Heather Scott Home & Design describes lighting as jewelry for your home. Though pearls on your ears, wrists and neck are lovely, mixing in another style adds a new element to your look. Apply the same school of thought when choosing lighting for your house. Don’t be afraid to use different finishes throughout. Black lanterns might be great for the kitchen, and if you’re feeling brushed nickel for the powder bath, go for it. Lighting is also a great way to put your own personality into your interior with distinct shapes and colors. And bigger can definitely be better, helping you make a grand statement that grabs attention and sparks conversation.
