We got electricity this week! Which means the lights that have been installed will finally to come to life as we near the end of our project. Building a house from scratch meant thinking about a ton of different types of lights (pendants, sconces, recessed cans) all at once. I love lighting so much and have never been able to make use of it at our rental apartment over the last decade. So here's a little peek at some of the lighting we're using…
To keep things consistent, I stuck with two lighting brands for the whole house—Lamps Plus (for their wide range of options and price points) and Cedar & Moss for their beautiful, high-quality pieces (and I love supporting a female-owned small business!). In the kitchen, we've installed two of these fun pendants from Lamps Plus over our kitchen island. I love that they feel both chic and playful!
These Cedar and Moss pendants line the hallway leading into the living room. I love the subtle texture that it adds while lighting the way.
To light the way up the stairs, I love these Lamps Plus brass sconces which allow you to angle the direction of the light either up or down.
In the girls' bedroom, we've installed these Cedar & Moss lights by their bunk beds (hence one high and one low) as reading lights for them in the evening.
And, finally, here's a peek at this Lamps Plus chandelier in the dining room which has yet to be fully assembled but is already looking very fun!
