We love experimenting with different combinations of design components. From tastefully refined to ultra modern, in tandem pushes the envelope for a “no restraints” surroundings that just works.
Might we suggest….
Try hanging our Tuscan Wood Chandelier in a bungalow environment with an Arts & Crafts décor. The organic texture of the wood would make for an eclectic mix with our elegant hand knotted Vanderbilt Estate Rug.
Mixing it up with a collection of different table lamps in the same room will speak of your “risk taking” abilities! Imagine a blue & white bedroom with our Best Blue & White Table Lamp in your bedroom with our Star Glass Table Lamp perched across the room; provocative & imaginative for sure.
We love mixing metals and ceramic. Our Art Glaze Lamps add an artistic approach to any project. Combine them in a room with a modern mix that might include our Chelsea Chandelier along with our Beveled Mirror Chest. This might be my favorite combo. I am picturing a black & white cowhide for the perfect accessory to an urban chic environment.
Break the rules! There are no rules! Have some fun & make your haven harmonious with your personality!
Believe it or not chilly weather is just around the bend!
We love to “dine in” during the shorter days and longer, cozier nights. Plan now for that special intimate gathering of good friends, good wine & lighting that will set the perfect mood.

There’s just something about the beach that makes us feel good! The good news is, you don’t have to live at the beach to appreciate nautical home décor. Of course, you can’t go wrong with typical nautical motifs and colors, but this summer we’re all about nature-inspired nautical lamps and rugs to decorate our homes!
Comforts of the coast such as seashells, sand, driftwood and coral bring a feeling of calm to our home that makes us feel like we’re on vacation! We also like incorporating classic elements, such as brass and wood that focus on clean and easy living and will last for seasons to come. Lighting is a functional way to help you capture the coast, no matter where you live and at Shades of Light the nautical lighting is always in style, so break out the sunglasses and big floppy hat, we’re headed to the beach!
