Bringing the Outdoors in

As we well and truly settle into 2017, the suspected trends are beginning to take a firm grip in the interiors world. In the modern home we are choosing to incorporate the Scandi style, in the form of pale wood furniture and clear glass lighting to give the space a clean, uncluttered feel. Bars and restaurants are adding a pop of colour to their projects, breathing life and fun into a room. A great example of this is Be at One in Nottingham, who chose to use our popular LED ring fitting, yet added a twist by asking us to finish this in hot pink!

Amongst all these trends, is one that has been around forever, yet is making its way to the top this year. Bringing the outdoors in, whether this be in the form of greenery or natural wood fittings is one way to create a sanctuary and a feeling of calm. Creating huge windows to bring in natural light is a great way to achieve this, or why not add in a feature wall? When thinking of a feature wall, you'd be forgiven for thinking of something bright and busy. But using natural materials in a more neutral palette can be just as effective, such as marble, stone or even concrete. All suit very different tastes, but go hand in hand with a natural theme. Our bespoke wood light fittings can add a sense of craftsmanship and quality, or our handmade wicker wall lights provide a timeless ambience. 

For something a little quirky, have a look at our moss finished pendant lights for an earthy feel, or our manufactured driftwood feature lights can create an amazing centrepiece to catch the eye. However you choose to make this trend your own, be it for a bar, restaurant or your home, be sure to browse our website for inspiration: https://www.chantellelighting.co.uk/
