A mix of different types of lighting, placed at different points in the room, is essential for creating a proper living room lighting scheme. While the first thing you tend to see in this room in London’s Cheyenne Terrace is the central statement fixture, there are also three table lamps, one-floor lamp, five pot lights, and an accent light in the ceiling on the window side of the room. They all combine to create a layered and robust lighting scheme, free of shadows.
If you love the look of an industrial pendant light but can’t stand staring at a stark cord, disguise it! A thick jute rope will get the job done—and add a bit of rustic texture to the room. This lamp’s cord was first tightly wrapped with sisal to hide it, then dressed up even more with a length of knotted rope.
It’s important to scale the size of the pendant to the room. One general rule is to add up the length and width of the room in feet and use the same number in inches for the pendant’s diameter. Also consider whether the pendant is providing ambient light or task lighting or accent lighting. You can coordinate your bedroom pendant lights with other lighting you’ve chosen, including recessed lights, wall sconces and flush-mounted lighting fixtures.
A simple bulb hanging from exposed cord can look sleek and modern, but sometimes you want to spruce up the cord a bit. With a little dismantling, oversize wooden beads can be strung onto the cord at any length you wish. Masking even just a short section will give the hanging light a little flair and distract from the exposed cord.
