Better Homes & Gardens “Lighting” magazine is on the newsstands and in American Lighting Association showrooms now. This much anticipated magazine, in collaboration with ALA, only comes out once a year. This special publication is filled with great articles, lighting tips and beautiful setting shots. Quoizel’s full page ad, opposite the “Editor’s Note,” features the newly introduced Gallery collection’s island light and mini chandeliers. Although traditional in design, the clean and simple structure of the Gallery Collection suits a variety of décor styles. The slender candle sleeves, in Ivory or Royal Ebony, and strong lines come together to create the perfect minimalist design.
Ready or not, the holidays are not too far away! If you are hosting, now is the time to start planning on how you want to present your holiday table. Whether it’s the linen, the china or the flatware, you want it to be perfect. And….don’t forget the lighting. The chandelier in your dining room is sure to be the focal point so now is a good time to think about replacing your outdated lighting fixture. Whether you are looking for something lavish, classic, contemporary or traditional, Quoizel has what you are looking for.
The Vision pendant is a work of art and a beautiful addition to the Platinum Collection. The stunning glass has been poured to create a sculptural bowl of ice and is floating on suspended cables from the canopy. The Polished Chrome finish on the base reflects the light to showcase the dazzling glass.
Neutral colors will be everywhere you look, and according to Pantone the color trend for 2016 is rose quartz and serenity (soft pinks and blues) which will radiate a sense of order and peace. Simply White, Benjamin Moore’s color of the year, is very elegant and defined. Layered whites mixed with natural light add nuance and subtle beauty to a room. To add a bit more character, use different textures, geometric patterns and mixed metals that will all be trending in the upcoming months.
Bringing the outdoors in will continue to play a big role in homes. The Thornhill chandelier brings the form of nature to lighting with forest-like branches finished in a stark Marcado Black. In addition to having natural looking decor and greenery, welcome natural sunlight in with windows and sliding glass door systems that will allow easy access to the outdoors while adding beauty and style to any space. Outdoor living spaces and kitchens are the perfect place to relax alongside nature. They are a great addition to make your own backyard feel like a vacation spot all year long.

Splish splash there’s plenty of bath…90 new styles including beautiful cutting-edge LED. The Dublin Collection was a crowd favorite. The pressed glass appears mesh-like both inside and out for a textured look and the Brushed Nickel finish highlights the industrial styling of the fixture. If your family forgets to put that fan on, no worries, this fixture is marked “Damp” for those high moisture areas.
