Sometimes shining a little light on the past can give a personal touch to a modern home. Whether it is a loft space in an up and coming neighborhood or a single family house in the suburbs, using rustic lighting can add charm and character to any space. It can be a way of honoring the style and classical ambiance of yesteryear while maintaining a foothold in the present.
Incorporating classic or rustic flair in modern décor is a trend that has seen a large amount of interest in recent years. Some of the most interesting design ideas on the internet are where household items that our parents or grandparents used are repurposed and re-envisioned: mason canning jars converted into candles, cast iron bathtubs turned into seating, and more. Besides the sustainable benefits of such decorating, one reason many people are getting into this is because it lends a uniqueness and a quaint, rural charm to any space. One way that requires less elbow grease to bring that flair home is by changing your light fixtures.
