First Impressions Count

It’s easy to spend hours thinking about your interior design but don’t forget the importance of first impressions. The lighting at the entrance to your home needs to be functional but reflect your own personal style. The Coach Wall Up Lantern is an elegant fitting and when teamed with outdoor planters in terracotta or cobalt blue will create a stylish look that doesn’t cost the earth.

The Power Of The Lamp

Style and creative flair are the secret ingredients for pulling together a smart home interior; it’s not all about the money. Textured rugs and scatter cushions in vibrant tones can add to the look. Don’t forget about lamps when you are searching for affordable lighting as they create layering of light in a room. Take the classically designed Blenheim Floor Lamp – Antique Brass for example. It has understated style and will be perfect positioned next to a comfy armchair on seagrass or solid oak flooring.

A simple yet striking table lamp can also bring a new dimension to a tired room. Take a look at the Oporto Table Lamp – Polished Chrome which will complement both a neutral or more vibrant colour palette and can be placed next to plumped up sofas covered with bright throws.

Eye-Catching Pendants

Affordable lighting doesn’t equal bland fittings. Being bold with your colour choice can result in something spectacular and can change a soulless interior into an inspiring space. Vivid colours can be striking as seen in the Soho Pendant – Red. This distinctive fitting in hot red will work with simple white walls or set against a black backdrop for dramatic effect.
