Fall Back & Fall For These New Lighting Trends

Posted on November 1, 2013 by Miller and Smith Blog Team

The good news is for most people, this Sunday marks either an extra hour to enjoy the evening’s festivities or an extra hour the next morning to laze around and get your body’s internal alarm clock used to the changes that Daylight Savings brings. The bad news, of course, is more and more darkness. However, why not celebrate this season and outfit your house with the latest in home lighting trends.

To start, take the lead from our interior designers at Miller & Smith’s Grapevine Ridge at Clarksburg Town Center and check out these Moroccan inspired antique gold hanging pendants. They add a tasteful mix and match of styles and create the ultimate conversation starter.

 Another recent trend in lighting design is combining traditional glam elements like crystal and glass with the simplicity of modern design to establish eye-catching connections. As seen here in our dining rooms at Poplar Run in Silver Spring and Maple Lawn in Fulton, Maryland, a combination of glass and silver establishes eye-catching juxtaposition and creates an interesting focal point in both rooms. 




 You can create this type of visual interest in your own home with this antique crystal chandelier.


The three-legged tripod floor lamp in this One Loudoun family room adds high style and anchors the room with the perfect reading accompaniment. This design adds a sharp, crisp element to any room, whether you choose black, a natural wood tone or a metal finish.
