Complimentary Lighting For Coastal Décor


Possibly one of the most recognizable decorating styles that has gained increased popularity over the past decade has been the rustic inspired coastal cottage look, where this relaxed beach style originally popped up in the coastal communities surrounding Myrtle Beach and Palm Beach. This style is defined by the use of distressed reclaimed wood and whitewashed furnishings that provide an eclectic shabby chic attitude associated with coastal homes. Although this style has numerous options for décor, the need for lighting that compliments these specific elements proves to be a challenge for most homeowners and interior designers. Trying to locate a light that reflects an antique appearance while fitting this weathered style is often times considered the hardest acquisition for these projects. Using the inspiration that was first pictured in Coastal Living Magazine and featured in a subsequent post in the Decorology blog, this coastal home displays several decorating possibilities with a focus on 3 galvanized pendants positioned above a tiled bar. Judging by the elements in this kitchen, the choice to use this type of Radial Wave design flows well with the overall theme in this kitchen. The classic scalloped shade design that hangs above this kitchen is reminiscent of the gas station lights and streetlights from the 1920’s. When combined with the vintage screen door leading into the pantry, the Radial Wave seems the obvious choice to bring the Victorian essence out in this kitchen. Since there is a large amount of reclaimed materials used in this kitchen, the use of a Radial Wave design balances the aged accent pieces with the newer cabinets and appliances. The soft glow from these pendants is sure to provide the right amount of complimentary light to this incredible summer getaway.
