What’s one of the easiest ways to update your space? Lighting! I can not put into words how happy I was to FINALLY take down the awful ceiling fan in our living room and swap it out for this beautiful Allure Ceiling Flushmount from Troy Lighting. I wanted something low profile (we don’t have high ceilings), sophisticated and casual. With metallic accents throughout our kitchen and living room, it was the perfect fixture to tie the space together. It comes in a gold leaf finish in hand-worked iron with a white glass shade. I prefer a white shade over clear glass particularly when fixtures are overhead because I like the softer illumination. The color goes so beautifully with our antique gold mirror over the fireplace too. We’re in the middle of re-finishing the pellet stove surround and mantle so stay tuned for that update soon!
In the front of the house, we replaced old lights with the Morgan sconces. Again I wanted something with touches of gold because of our gold doorbell and knocker. I LOVE how they pop against our pink house and tie together all our gold accents. They really brighten up the front, how sweet do they look with that forsythia wreath? My favorite design feature is the mirrored back, so the lights reflect the trees across the street, it’s such a pretty touch. They have that modern feel but at the same time add warmth and charm. It’s the first thing anyone notices when they stop by the house.
If you’re looking to do some updates, Troy lighting has some really beautiful fixtures for interior and exterior. I love the Little Harbor sconces, they’d be so perfect for a colonial or farmhouse. The Wilmington is super cool too for something a bit more nautical/industrial. If you’re feeling the itch to make some changes but don’t know where to start, try switching out your lighting, even in one room or space. It’s pretty amazing what a difference some new fixtures can make.
