Does your house ever feel cookie cutter? Like the builder (whenever it was built) came in and did their thing and you’re stuck with it? Yeah, I hate that feeling. Lately, I’ve been thinking that lighting is the key to instantly giving a home a custom feel. I mean you can paint things, change out trim, there are lots of DIYs of course, but for some reason, lately I’m feeling light lighting can have a huge impact!
Friday night I was at Jess’ sister’s birthday party that Jess was hosting. I was hanging out in her dining room and couldn’t stop thinking about the lighting in the room. It had me completely distracted from the conversation I was having and people might have thought I had too much of the Autumn Apple Sangria (it was a cute Sweets & Sangria theme!). Anyhow…
Here are the lights that caused my extreme distraction…
Don’t they instantly give this room a custom feel? There’s nothing builder-grade about these babies! Check out the full post about them here.
I also added a custom light to my living room/piano room and I think it’s what gives the room a high end feel. I think with just a generic side lamp, it might just look like Rainbow Bright went on a rampage! (I just dated myself didn’t I???)
Since Jess’ dining room had me thinking about lighting, I jumped onto my favorite online lighting store.
I guess I hadn’t been on in a while, because I fell head over heels for so many of the new lights! This isn’t a sponsored post or anything, I just felt like I couldn’t keep all this goodness to myself.
So, here are some of my very favorites, but check out the online store to see all the awesomeness!
As the wife of a chemist, I really need to own this!
Obviously I LOVE this cage light. It will be making an appearance in my home soon!
One thing I love about Brad’s lights is the ability you have to customize most lights! He has 3 gorgeous finishes and I actually got to visit his shop (which is amazing btw) and see how he buffs each piece of metal. It truly is a piece of art when it’s finished!
This is perfect for a Mid-Century style.
The copper color on this light is so soft, yet stylish, and way pretty!
So, what do you think about these lights I’m crushing on? Amazing right?

SO true! And lighting is one of the most intimidating projects to undertake. Thanks for lots of good suggestions.
Lighting can make such a difference! The American Lighting Association provides a FREE copy of the current Better Homes and Gardening special issue all about lighting! They also have a digital copy available. I love this eye candy!
