Guest Blogger | One Modern Pendant, Three Different Styles
A few months ago, I kicked off a fun series where I choose one Barn Light Electric fixture and style it three different ways to illustrate the endless versatility of a well-made light.
This month, with spring on the brain, I’m all about the Lafayette Soho Pendant Light in Blush Pink — a classic shape that resembles those May flowers we’re anxiously awaiting, in an immensely popular color in both interiors and fashion.
What I love about this hue is that it’s a total chameleon. It can be surprisingly neutral, complementing almost any palette and adding just the right hint of color without overwhelming. Or, depending on how you use it and what you pair it with, blush can make a powerful, bold statement. The choices are endless and they’re all yours!
Keep reading for three distinctly different takes on one stunningly simple, yet totally showstopping light.
With the arrival of spring comes new life, and what symbolizes new life more than a darling newborn nursery? In this soothing space, sweet swan wallpaper picks up on the pink of the pendant while providing a fun dose of subtle pattern. A minimalist maple crib provides both form and function while a fringed kilim rug offers pink coziness underfoot. A comfy cushion, large wall clock, and artwork capturing the parent-baby bond tie the space together and create a precious place for a little one to thrive.
I’m already dreaming of the warm weather ahead, and this boho modern living room is the next best thing to an escape to the tropics. This jungle-inspired wallpaper and playful, eclectic mirror set the tone for the space, while the hand-tufted rug provides some much-needed grounding. A large, cozy armchair in luxurious green velvet is an updated take on a mid-century classic, and a thoroughly modern blush concrete side table provides the perfect perch for a cocktail.
With more and more of the workforce performing jobs remotely, the home office is having a major moment (check out my post on how to create a functional, stylish home office for tips). This version gets a mega dose of pattern with a chic floral wallpaper that’s balanced with neutral texture found in the jute rug and sisal message board. The clean lines of this crisp glass and antique brass desk provide a visual airiness to the space, while the blue velvet armchair adds just the right amount of bold, luxe color. A Lovell Brass Task Lamp offers ample light for the task at hand without sacrificing an ounce of style.
