Get Inspired to Bring an Autumn Feeling into Your Home & Save Now Through October 25th Posted on 18 Oct 12:06 , 0 comments

Add the Glow of Candlelight to Your Home

At this time of year as darkness comes earlier, I love to light candles. There's nothing like the glow of candlelight to add drama and fragrance to your home. Here are some tips for bringing the warmth and beauty of autumn into your home.

Add Some Scented Candles

Scents like vanilla, pumpkin, and clove smell wonderful at this time of year and will fill your home with a warm and spicy fragrance. Add the glow and aroma of some yummy scented candles and your home will feel amazing.

Candleholders That Hold Multiple Candles

Add a candleholder that holds multiple candles to your kitchen island or dining table. It will add a warm glow, and with scented candles, it will fill the air with the spicy notes of this season.

Bede Metallic Gold Candelabra - Innovations Designer Home Decor

Imagine the beauty that this unique candelabra will add to your décor. This bright metallic gold candelabra is accented with crystal beads at the tip of each branch. Clear glass globes hold the distressed light beige candles that are included.

Include a Hurricane Candleholder

A hurricane candleholder looks great on a coffee table or entry table. It will add just enough light and a warm glow to add a little ambience on a fall evening.

This graceful hurricane candleholder features an open weave steel finished in a beautiful gold leaf. It is accented with a clear glass globe with air bubbles seeded throughout. A distressed 5" x 6" light beige candle is included.

Dress Up Your Fireplace

Set some pillar candles inside your fireplace to add a glow when you don't want to burn wood logs. Or consider this unique fireplace screen.

Mara Fireplace Screen - Innovations Designer Home Decor

This striking screen, featuring a geometric design, is finished in a metallic gold leaf and accented by five distressed white pillar candles.

Brighten a Wall with a Candle Sconce

Instead of a piece of artwork, think of filling some wall space with an interesting candle sconce.

This elegant candle sconce features overlapping circular iron rings finished with elegant gold leaf. Six distressed light beige 3" x 3" candles are included. You'll love the glow from this unique candle sconce.

Update Your Decor with the Newest Trends in Lighting Fixtures & Enjoy Special Savings Posted on 23 Mar 14:31 , 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 spring, 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?

Bede Gold Leaf 3-Light Pendant Lighting Fixture - Innovations Designer Home Decor

This exquisite pendant lighting fixture features a bright metallic gold leaf finish accented with crystal beads at the tip of each branch. This unique lighting fixture will add a beautiful 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.

Byzantine Wall Sconce - Innovations Designer Home Decor

This unique and distinctive wall sconce will add an enchanting touch to your decor. Its soft antiqued finish is complemented by a criss cross design and mesh reflector.

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.

Vitalia 6-Light Oil Rubbed Bronze Chandelier - Innovations Designer Home Decor 

This gorgeous chandelier will add an eye-catching touch to your decor. I love the unique amber hand made glass. If this isn't quite the style you're looking for, we have many other chandeliers from which to choose.

If you love this styling, please take a look at all of the other fixtures in this collection.

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.

Alpena Washed Copper 1-Light Mini Pendant Lighting Fixture - Innovations Designer Home Decor

This gorgeous mini pendant will add a rich and classy touch to your decor. Copper is a trending finish, and this rich washed copper finish with burnished details makes this pendant very special.

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.

Tamworth Modern 3-Light Vanity Lighting Fixture - Innovations Designer Home Decor

Add an elegant touch to your bathroom with this stunning vanity lighting fixture. A burnished silver champagne leaf finish and modern clear crystal accents are complemented by silken off white hardback shades. If you love this styling, we have other fixtures from this collection.

Once you change out your lighting fixture, you may want to replace your mirror with a decorative framed mirror. We have a beautiful selection of mirrors from which to choose.
