Easy Update With Lighting

The smallest thing can change the look of a room. Yes, it can be fun to totally makeover a room however, if that's not in your budget, changing out just one thing in a room can make big impact. A coat of paint, re-arranging your furniture, new curtains, a new piece of furniture etc. can all help to quickly update any room in your home. 
Changing your light fixture is another way you can easily update any room and it has the capability to change the room completely. 

Have you seen Emily's kitchen since she put her new light fixture over her island? Honestly, love. it. It totally changed the feel of the space and the light fixture is gorgeous {she also painted the kitchen and changed a few other things too - but the light fixture alone adds so much}. I would love one of these in my house someday. Take a look...

Pretty, right? Doesn't the lantern give the kitchen such a great feel?
Go here to see the fixture she had before. 

Here's a look at a few other light fixtures I'm loving...
I recently saw this light fixture on pinterest. Believe it or not it's actually a repurposed wire basket. I think it's unique and would add a great touch to a room. You can actually see how to make your own here


These organic blown glass pendants from West Elm are so lovely. I just love the industrial feel they give off!


No surprise I like this mint coloured chandelier. Chandeliers aren't just for dining rooms. They can look great in the most unexpected places. For instance, the laundry room & even the bathroom. Yup, it's true. 


Lastly I love the look of this vintage glass pendant. It's delicate and pretty! A few of these would look awesome lined up over an island & a single one would be a great fit over a kitchen sink. Don't you think?
