My Favorite Home Lighting Ideas

I’m so thrilled to be taking over the Circa Lighting Instagram account this month! Spend a few minutes perusing our home tours (like this one via Traditional Home), and you’ll quickly learn that the Circa team is a go-to when designing the perfect lighting plan for a client’s home. Many of you asked for a list of my lighting faves, so I’m rounding up a few of those here, along with some beauties that just hit the market. I hope you enjoy and don’t forget to follow along on Instagram @circalighting 1/22 – 1/26!

Texture Reigns Supreme

One of the first things we look for when hunting down the perfect fixture is texture. Richly textured finishes evoke a handcrafted, one-of-a-kind vibe we can’t get enough of, and they’re a wonderful way to layer interest without committing to a bold color palette. We’re especially smitten with plaster finishes, a relative new-comer to the lighting scene, and fell in love with Circa’s Julie Neill collection during our latest showroom visit!

Free-Form and Fabulous

Whether it’s blown glass or intricate metal accents, there’s something undeniably fascinating about free-form fixtures. We’re particularly drawn to pieces that balance out that free flowing magic with tailored moments of structure.

Keeping a Low Profile

Love all the lighting but not sure what to do with your 8-foot ceilings? Flush and semi-flush mount fixtures are your very best friends! And we’re not talking about standard flush mounts from days past. We’re talking about modern, sophisticated styles that rival any chandelier on the market! And we’re throwing in a low profile sconce for good measure…

Stone Cold Fox-y

Organic, texture-rich, and delightfully translucent, we’re digging stone fixtures [get it?]. Whether you opt for alabaster, quartz, marble, or something rare, stone is a surefire way to master texture and nuanced color within your home.

Inside Out

People so often obsess over interior lighting details forgetting to turn that same attention to the home’s outdoor fixtures. We like to remind our clients that exterior lighting should complement and enhance the story your home tells within. Luckily, outdoor fixtures have come a long way and there are more stylish, minimalist pieces on the market than ever before!
