Lighting is such an important element in the home. It totally changes not only the look of the room, but the feel. Great lighting improves the mood, creating a bright or cozy atmosphere. The right light makes any space feel bigger and styled, sophisticated or cute. Modern, efficient lighting will also reduce electricity costs and help reduce environmental impact. Especially as we head into winter months, I’m such a fan of bright spaces; great lighting literally lights up my life!
Kichler Lighting has some incredible lighting possibilities for every room around the home. Their lighting options are super high-quality and functional as well as beautiful and so stylish. I loved all the options they had to choose from and knowing they ensure verified specifications and safety for each and every fixture made me feel good about having so many of their products in our home. Here are a few of my lighting favourites around our house!
The lighting in Pierce’s bedroom is a simple black and gold Armstrong 3 Light Flush Mount Black. While it’s a super clean look, it’s elegant and very bright which I love. It’s quite a light fixture and was easy to install. I appreciate not having anything hanging too low in this room as the boys have been known to throw their toys around the room and so far this lighting fixture has survived a few flying stuffie encounters!! Lastly, the gold matches perfectly with the gold hardware on the side tables.

My office is a bit of an oasis for me, a place where I can escape from the chaos that sometimes takes over the rest of the house. I wanted lighting that was airy, modern and a little feminine and I think I found the perfect fixture for the space. I also didn’t want anything too practical or boring; the office is MY space where I get to be my most creative self, not just a mom, a wife or a snack maker.
The Eris 8 Light Chandelier in Polished Nickel is an exclusive Kichler design featuring a 1960’s inspired shape modernized to deliver brilliant 21st century light. I LOVE the crystal accents and how much it lights the room up. Turning this light on as I walk in makes me feel motivated, awake and inspired.

It is so essential the pantry is well lit. Now that it’s organized I love that little space so much and having a bright light helps keep everything in its place, just as NEAT Method intended!! This Tollis 1 Light Foyer Pendant in Brushed Nickel was the perfect lighting choice for this space. Originally we’d chosen a slightly bigger version which is what I linked but we ended up going with the smaller option as the bigger one didn’t fit well in the space. Sometimes you need a few tries to get it right!
I love the egg shape with the white and brushed nickel. It ties in perfectly with the other hardware we have in the pantry and kitchen as well as a modern, timeless look. It’s nice to have it all match as, surprise, surprise, this pantry door is often left open!

Lighting my closet, or any woman’s closet, is important!! We have to be able to scan and choose the perfect outfit under pressure. I wanted a row of dainty chandeliers and three of the Kona Cay 2 Light Semi Flush was the perfect fit. I wanted closet lighting to tie in with the chandelier in our bedroom but not so matchy matchy. These three lights complement the master design perfectly, not to mention make the space bright. As there’s no windows or natural light I needed the perfect bulb and the 60W LED bulbs we chose are ideal. The clear frosted glass string shades and distressed antique white finish make this one of my favourite nooks in the house.
Our master bedroom needed statement lighting. In the boy’s rooms I went a bit practical but in our bedroom I wanted lighting that was larger and striking and would really fill the space. I shopped around quite a bit before I decided on the Brisbane 8 Light Chandelier Distressed Black. I love the mix of elegance and rustic chic with this product. It complements the headboard and the style of the room without overdoing it.
The unique basket-shaped lighting style features distressed antique white beads against a distressed black finish, for a chic look that’s elegant but casual. This light fixture is such a beautiful piece for our master bedroom, I love it!
Lighting is so important to the mood of a room. The right lights can instantly boost energy or relax you and bring calm to the space. I think we’ve got a great mix of statement lights and understated fixtures that let the rest of the room shine. What do you like in your home? Big, bold fixtures or something more classic? Any favourites from the lights I’ve picked? I’d love your thoughts!
