Current Trends In Lighting

The interview between host JD Roberto of The Better Show and Editor Samantha Hart of Better Homes and Gardens  on current lighting trends was informative and well worth examining. We thought it might be interesting to match up Quoizel’s products with the current trends they highlighted.

A huge trend right now is geometric lighting including sharp lines and clean edges in a very modern design. What’s great about geometric fixtures is the modern design can also be brought into a traditional setting creating a striking visual interest. Quoizel’s Carnegie chandelier, from the Uptown Collection, has a beautiful, modern design with some added elegance from the exposed vintage bulbs. Introduced in 2013, it is a mix of a contemporary and nostalgic-inspired design.

Go Bold Not Boring!

Light-colored walls don’t have to be boring! Think of it as a clean slate!  From chic to the thoroughly modern, a neutral space works with almost any style.

We can each express ourselves through our decorating choices and adding life to a room means bold accessories!

Start with the flooring and build the decor around it. Beginning with the floor gives you a chance to build a space piece by piece.  Accessorizing with bold colors such as orange, red and green will bring the room to life.  Incorporating colors using bedding, pillows, furniture and lamps will make the room dramatic and intriguing. Don’t forget to include different types of fabrics when adding pillows and window coverings.

In a recent article by Residential Lighting, the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Lighting Research Center has done extensive research showing that abnormal sleep patterns in Alzheimer’s patients are frequently caused by inadequate lighting levels which increase agitation, depression and intensified disease progression.
