Dome Pendant Light Trend + Houzz Feature

white dome light over table

Large dome pendant lights. They are being used more and more throughout the home including in dining rooms, kitchens and even bedrooms. The sleek, clean design had definitely increased in popularity and was the topic of an article recently written by Mary Jo Bowling on Houzz. I was thrilled to have my little breakfast nook (below) featured and talk about the design trend too! Here’s one quote taken from the article.

Dome pendant lights more understated than some over-the-top or frilly fixtures and they are kind of like the little black dresses of design, in that they can be dressed up or down to go with anything. – Cristin Bisbee Priest via Houzz

I often get asked who made the dome pendant in our nook. It was by Arteriors, but has been discontinued. If you are searching for something similar though, this chrome dome pendant light is a good alternative.

happy decorating,

Home Decorating Ideas :: Project Décor

Have you heard of Project Décor? It’s an amazing all-in-one design platform that allows you to create the room of your dreams and then buy it.  The highly addicting image-centric site (which speaks to me), is a place where users can get tons of home decorating ideas.

Creating your new room is super easy (and fun!). First, browse for products you love and “tear” them. Then create a design board (a cinch to do) using the items you’ve torn. If you like, share products or boards with friends or the hubby for approval (or not). And lastly, have your credit card handy to purchase.  Don’t worry, Project Décor welcomes all. They carry a variety of styles and price points, so there is something there for everyone.

I’ve created a few design boards to give you an idea of what you could do using Project Décor
