Can't Get Enough: Black Light Fixtures

Can't Get Enough: Black Light Fixtures

If you would have told me a few years ago that black lighting would be my go-to in my home (and now the homes of my clients) I would have thought you were a little bit crazy. I would have told you that black lighting was better left in the 80's and on the set of Miami Vice and okay, I would thought you were a little silly for even suggesting it. Yet, here were are. It's 2017 and not only have I adopted black lighting in my own home (everywhere) but I'm here to tell you that everyone should have black lighting in their home. 

Here's the thing about black lighting- it just works in every style of home and it instantly elevates any space you use it in. It can give a traditional space a little edge, which will automatically make it feel updated, and it can actually soften a modern one if you use a natural shade. It brings drama to minimalist interiors and even more funk to those that are eclectic. Black lighting looks so clean in a costal space (especially when using a black woven light) and is perfect for kitchens and bathrooms and is a great solution for those that are fearful of mixing metals (black goes with them all!) It's an easy way to add visual interest in any room in your home and it's for that reason alone that I can't recommend it enough. 

I could probably write an entire essay about my love of black lighting, but instead I just let these pictures do the talking. I chose these spaces because in each it's the lighting that really makes the room sing, and I really don't think they would have near as much impact without it. Below you can find some of my favorite black lights at all price points and they best part is that almost every retailer is carrying some really amazing pieces right now, and at every budget imaginable! Black lighting is going to continue to be a big trend in 2017 and I can only hope that means even more offerings! Xx
