Oh, and FYI, Sarah Richardson might be the smartest woman on the face of this earth. Okay, and Candice, from Candice tells All. If they were in South Africa, I would force them to work together and make my dream home come true. They are my idols in interior decorating.
So, this morning, I messaged my mom and told her how excited I was about redoing my dining room - well, in a sense of the word, as I don't have a dining room to start with. I also compiled a very badly compiled moodboard, with low res pictures that would make any person cry, et voila.
Horrible, isn't it? That is why, over the next few days, I am going to use my blog as a massive moodboard. And now you may be asking why I'm not using pinterest to do this? Well, on pinterest, you just pin ideas and they never come to fruition. This will be a personal challenge to me, as soon as the wedding is over, to come back to my mood board and carry out these ideas.
And it also allows for feedback. I want you guys to tell me what you think about every idea I post.
Today, I am touching on lighting. I am in love with pendant lighting these days, and feel that it adds character to any room. What do you think?
I love that pendant lights are used to highlight certain spaces, such as an island in the kitchen, or the dining room table, and when you have family and friends over in the evening, it will also add to the atmosphere, or ambiance. It also adds an extra design element and can make you feel like you are in some grand cafe, dining out, instead of in.
The key to pendant lighting, I think, is probably to figure out how many you want in your space. According to Houzz.com the most basic rule that isn't really a rule is something called 'The Rule of Three'. "Essentially, The Rule of Three states that an easy way to achieve balance is to repeat an element three times. I like to think of it as the rule of odd numbers. Human brains are pattern-recognition machines, and the most basic pattern there is an odd number," Paul Anater states.
So there you have it, three is the golden rule, that isn't really a rule.
Now, tell me what you think? Yes to pendant lights? What are some of the things you would apply to this style?
