Interior Design Tips & Trends


Add a Comfortable Rustic Touch to Your Decor Posted on 12 Sep 16:23 , 0 comments

Rustic Decor Adds a Casual and Warm Feeling to Your Home 

Rustic design is definitely on trend for today's interiors. A rustic space can be rugged and earthy or have a modern edge. It can remind you of a country house, a barn, a mountain retreat, or an exotic or coastal vacation home. It can be mid-century modern with natural organic elements or very industrial with lots of wood, metal, and industrial lighting fixtures.

Rustic Living Room

In all cases rustic design emphasizes rugged, natural beauty. Think recycled and reclaimed woods, distressed finishes, wrought iron, handcrafted accessories, and a natural color palette - all of which bring a touch of the outdoors inside.

We've just added some unique rustic and industrial style home accessories and accent furniture pieces. Below are some of my favorites. Please click on each photo for a zoomable image and a detailed description.

Update Your Decor with the Newest Trends in Lighting Fixtures Posted on 22 May 12:22 , 0 comments

Adding New Lighting Fixtures is an Easy Way to Update Your Decor

If you're looking for a way to update your decor for summer, think about changing out a lighting fixture or two. Many homes have the builder's fixtures that were included when the house was built. These are often unexciting and bland in design.

Adding a new lighting fixture allows you to let your personality shine as you select a fixture that showcases your personal taste. There are so many fabulous fixtures from which to choose. You'll not only be adding a beautiful fixture, you'll also be improving the quality and beauty of light in your home.

Below are a few of my favorite new lighting fixtures that we've recently added to our shopping site. Just click on each photo for a zoomable image to see all of the intricate detail and for more information.

Start with Your Entry or Stairway 

Take a look at your entry and stairway first. This is the first place your guests see when they enter your home. Why not greet them with a gorgeous fixture that will set the tone as they arrive?

Aarush 5 Light Amber Hammered Glass Cluster Pendant Lighting Fixture - Innovations Designer Home Decor 

Rich amber hammered glass is the focus of this unique pendant fixture. It will add a stunning touch to your entry or stairway that will make you smile when you open your front door.

If this isn't quite the look you want for your entry, we have many more lovely fixtures from which to choose.

Wall Sconces Add Drama and Accent Lighting

Think about adding a wall sconce or two if you have an area in your entry or perhaps on either side of your dining room buffet. Unless there is already wiring, this will require the services of an electrician.

Brandon 1 Light Nickel Wall Sconce - Innovations Designer Home Decor 

This unique and distinctive wall sconce will add an enchanting touch to your decor. Its contemporary nickel metal abstract design encases a stretched lining of silver champagne fabric. 

Looking for something a little different? We have lots of sconces from which to choose.

A New Dining Room Chandelier Will Add Unique Styling

Most dining rooms are already wired for a lighting fixture. Be sure the bottom of your chandelier is no less than 30" above your table, and no more than 36" if you have a high ceiling. Put on a dimmer, a chandelier will allow you to adjust the lighting for intimate dinner parties or rousing family get togethers.

Tamworth 5 Light Silver Champagne Chandelier - Innovations Designer Home Decor

This gorgeous chandelier will add an elegant touch to your decor. I love the burnished silver champagne leaf finish and the modern clear crystals. If you love this styling, please take a look at all of the other fixtures in this collection.

If this isn't quite the style you're looking for, we have many other chandeliers from which to choose.

Pendant Lights Make Kitchens Sparkle

It's just amazing what a difference it makes to add some pendant lights over a kitchen island or over a kitchen sink. Not only can you see so much better when you're preparing food, but you can also create a beautiful mood when you're entertaining guests who always seem to gather in the kitchen.

Proteus 1 Light Geometric Brushed Nickel Pendant - Innovations Designer Home Decor 

Imagine the chic touch you'll add to your decor with this industrial style geometric inspired pendant. Geometric inspired shapes and outlines are trending in everything from jewelry to interior accents, and this stunning pendant in a brushed nickel finish is inspired by that geometric trend.

We have lots more pendants from which to choose. Please take a look.

Change Out Your Bathroom Vanity Fixtures

Many homes still have the builder's special bathroom fixtures - the ones with a strip of plain round light bulbs. Sound familiar? Changing out your bathroom fixtures is usually an easy fix, and it will make such a difference in the quality of lighting and mood in your bathroom.

Vetraio 4 Light Bronze Vanity Lighting Fixture - Innovations Designer Home Decor

Add an dramatic touch to your bathroom with this stunning vanity lighting fixture. Amber hand blown glass and oil rubbed bronze iron combine to create this eye-catching fixture. If you love this styling, we have other fixtures from this collection.
