The homeowners’ wish list included space for a game room with a pool table, den, wet bar, home office, and a full bathroom.

Trends, particularly in the "background" materials like flooring, can provide great inspiration and still not end up being a "trendy" choice in the long-run.

Trends in Pendant Light Fixtures

Posted by Christina Temple on Tue, May 23, 2017

Pendant lighting is often used as the jewelry of a room. Since these types of lights come in a huge variety of styles, sizes, colors, and more, it's easy to use them as doses of personality in a room. This is especially useful in a kitchen, where cabinetry and counters tend to create a neutral foundation.
