The lighting situation at The Abode is atrocious! Crappy brassy ceiling fans take up 75% of our lighting fixtures. This includes our dining area which is also majorly off center from the table. Eyesore much? When something needs to be fixed and I just don’t have the funds to fix it, I obsess over it. And so is the case with our lighting situation, I figured I would revive the series Fogue Faves for a roundup of lighting trends that I expect to hit big this year. Who am I kidding, this list is seriously drool-worthy. Move over Wes, mommy needs a bib. If you’re in need of some really great lighting ideas, check out these fixtures below. P.S. I’ve left links to all the fixtures numbered below.
Here comes the drool with these chandeliers. I need 1, 2, 10!!! I have a plan to put a beaded chandie in our living room with the vaulted ceiling, it will be a show stopper. If you love all things wooden beads like I do, then these lights are for you. They can go with a variety of styles from farmhouse, coastal farmhouse, French country, or even cottage. This vintage vibe is making the rounds big time in 2018.
Need a color pop in your room, check out these fab and fun light options. I’m really loving the bright colors with these fun schoolhouse style pendants. This trend sort of shocked me, I haven’t seen a ton of it done, but I’m loving all the choices going on.
French-Farmhouse is growing in popularity right now. These wood and metal mixed chandies fit perfectly in this style. From a beautiful natural pine to a weathered and bleach pendant, these natural inspired light fixtures are sure to steal your heart.
This trend isn’t exactly new, but I don’t think it will be going anywhere for 2018. More and more fun sconce selections are available and you can find them at just about every price point. These look great beside a bed, above shelving or over a window. They are the perfect accent piece.
What can we start saying goodbye to? I am predicting the industrial vibe lights are headed out the door and you can still see a bit of their existence mixed with other styles. But I’m seeing less and less metal piping and more feminine and earthy feels. Want to jump track to next year, start looking into coastal farmhouse. Joanna Gaines introduced this concept in their current season of Fixer Upper and if it’s like anything else she lays hands on, it will be gold.
