Industrial Lighting Decor Ideas

Industrial Lighting Decor Ideas

INDUSTRIAL LIGHTING DECOR

Industrial lighting has become all the rage in home decor, and it looks great in many settings. It is especially fitting for loft apartments cut out of warehouse buildings or old farm houses that have been rehabbed. However, you can adapt this style lighting for just about any setting if you put your mind to it. Here are some ideas that can get you going.

Industrial Lighting

There are several styles of industrial lighting including this one pictured below. This is a chandelier meant to hang from the ceiling, but the lights are in a single line so it would fit in a narrow space. Made from industrial pipes, this has a very down-to-earth style.

Cage Pendant Chandelier

This is another industrial-style chandelier with an entirely different look. You can order a varying number of lights and hang them in whatever configuration that you like. This is a more delicate look than the chandelier pictured above. Great for pretty much any casual decor.

Cage Pendant Chandelier

Industrial Pipe Chandelier

This chandelier is similar to the pipe chandelier above, however the style of lighting is different and the pipes are different lengths. It is longer in length and would light up a medium sized room.

Industrial Wall Sconce

I love the industrial wall sconces the best. This one has a globe bulb hanging from a simple steel pipe curved to hang down. It would look great along a hallway, in a reading corner or even in an entry way near the front door.

Industrial Wall Sconce

Industrial Pendant Light

One of the simplest styles available, this industrial pendent light shows the basic characteristics of the industrial style. A bulb hanging from a wire which can be made any length you need to light up a corner of your home.

Industrial Pendant Light

Antique Blue Insulator Pendant Light

These lights offer a retro style for a recreation room, bar area or as shown here in a kitchen. The green color of the lamps evoke the 1950s and 1960s and the style of the glass is reminiscent of that era

Antique Blue Insulator Pendant Light

Edison Lamp

Incredible desk lamp that has a steampunk style made with an Edison bulb. Great for tables, desktops or shelves.

Industrial Farmhouse Light

This piece is a bit rougher in style, made with reclaimed wood as the base and meant to line a wall in a hallway or family room decorated in a farmhouse style.

Industrial Farmhouse Light

Industrial Multi-Pendant Light

This lamp takes the best of both worlds, creating a chandelier with pendant lights. The footprint is lean and the amount of light can vary with the number of bulbs. Simple, but could be used in just about any room with central lighting.

Industrial Multi-Pendant Light

Wall Sconce

A different style wall sconce with a light on top and bottom. As you can see here, it is made from pipes and caged lights. Super cool, really industrial looking and will fit in a lot of small spaces.

Wall Sconce

Industrial Sputnik Fixture

Who remembers what Sputnik is? If so, then you will see the reason for the name of this light fixture. Simple pipes that create a star-like dispersion of light in a circle. Great for a dining room or large living room.

How to Decorate your Bedroom in Orange, Tangerine and Nectarine

If there's a color that is popular right now, it's orange, and it can add a real pop when you use it to decorate a bedroom. Of course, there are lots of shades of orange from very pale to rich and deep. Which you decide on is up to you, and here I've tried to include a range using tangerine and orange as the main colors to help you choose.

Orange is a vibrant, rich and cheerful color that really stands out, so the first thing you should decide is just how much you need to create your own look. Start by thinking of the main or biggest areas that need filling -- walls and floor coverings, curtains and bedding are the major focal points in a bedroom. You probably already have the floor and wall colors in place, and if you've been wise, you've chosen neutral colors that will form a solid base for implementing any color changes elsewhere that you might want to make.

What I've done here is pick out things you can choose to put together orange bedroom decor. You'll find suggestions that include orange bedding, curtains and rugs and some accent ideas. Be sure to check out my other orange tangerine pages which include some other suggestions you might like to work into your new-look bedroom, such as throws and throw pillows and some delicious orange wall art.

Tangerine Curtains

Covering the windows is another of those large blocks of color I was talking about earlier. As usual, there are lots of decisions depending on your needs and your taste. Do you need curtains for privacy and that cut out light and drafts and keep heat in, or could you get away with using something completely decorative?

2 Piece Solid SHEER PANEL Window Curtain 60-inch width X 84-inch

Use sheer curtains to create an ethereal look. Here you can use the two panels to dress the window in a number of ways, just use your imagination and creative flare. Each of these panels measures 60 inches by 84 inches, plenty for most windows.

Using Wallpaper to Change a Room to Retro

Using Wallpaper to Change a Room to Retro

Using Wallpaper to Change a Room to Retro

Sometimes you only need to change one thing in a room to change it completely into a new style. Wallpaper is one of those things. You can add wallpaper to one wall in a room to change the entire mood.

Lately, I have been writing about decorating in retro. One of the easiest ways to change your kitchen, bathroom or living room into a retro style room is by adding one of these retro designed wallpapers to one accent wall. These wallpapers are a hoot! For most rooms, it would only take one day to put the paper up, then you could see the results immediately.

&

York Wallcoverings KB8525 Bistro 750 Retro Leaves Prepasted WallpaperYork Wallcoverings KB8525 Bistro 750 Retro Leaves Prepasted Wallpaper

&

The wallpaper featured above is a good example. York Wallcoverings KB8525 Bistro 750 Retro Leaves Prepasted Wallpaper comes in five different color combinations that can be used with almost any color scheme. It is a 50's style design which would go great in a kitchen, entry or bathroom. You don't have to want a retro look to use it, but it certainly can be used for that purpose.

Using Wallpaper to Change a Room to Retro

Another use for a retro wallpaper, or actually any patterned design is to create wall art from it. You can see this done here with this Wall In A Box WIB1012 Retro Dots Wallpaper, Silver Metallic, Scarlet Red, Gloss Black, Steel Gray. This is a very cool look that can be easily done by hand at home. Just place the wallpaper over a frame or on top of an existing artist canvas. Staple it to the back, and hang. In this picture, the paper has been put on four canvases and placed in a 2 x 2 pattern. The dot geometric design is juxtaposed with the squareness of the canvases.

&

WIB1012 Retro Dots Wallpaper, Silver Metallic, Scarlet Red, Gloss Black, Steel GrayWIB1012 Retro Dots Wallpaper, Silver Metallic, Scarlet Red, Gloss Black, Steel Gray

&

This is a wonderful wall accent for a den, living room, dining room or bedroom. It can also be used in a hallway or entryway. This is a particularly good idea if you rent the space you are living in, so you don't need to replace the wallpaper. Just remove the nail you are hanging the frame with.

Using Wall Decals for Christmas Decor – Easy and Cheap

Using Wall Decals for Christmas Decor – Easy and Cheap

Christmas Wall Decal DecorationsIf you are looking for an easy and inexpensive way to decorate for Christmas, especially in a rented or temporary space like an apartment or dorm room, one of the easiest is using Christmas wall decals.

Wall decals have been overtaking the wall decorating market as a substitute for wall paper. They are much less permanent, easy to change out and cheap. You can apply them in minutes, and use them for kids rooms, kitchens, bathrooms and more. However, for Christmas wall decor, they are supreme. While similar to stickers, they don't leave behind sticky residue, and can be taken down almost as quickly as you can put them up. Also, they are very cheap compared to many other decorations.

Here are some great examples of Christmas wall decals that you can use, but click through for many more examples:

Add a Colorful Impact with Throw Pillows

Add a Colorful Impact with Throw Pillows

It is amazing how much adding just one or two accessories can perk up a room, tie together a theme or just add a contrasting color. Personally, I love color, the more the better. So I have chosen some of my favorite throw pillows to show you what I mean. These pillows come in two sizes and in other shapes as well. You can pick the ones that I have listed on this page or you can click through these links and find completely different ones to decorate your home. Either way, adding one or two of these will make your room come alive. And they are comfortable to take a nap on.

Many people decorate a room in neutrals, then use throw pillows and other accessories to change their decor seasonally. You can do this for each holiday, time of year, or just because. So click through these links to see these and learn the details or create your own.

Decorate and Paint with Dragonfly Colors - Choosing

You are spoilt for choose in dragonfly colors - some look simple, blue or green or red, but if you look at a lot of them you will see how many dragonflies have multiple colors and incidentally, different textures, which you can introduce into decorating ideas.

The colors. Just like butterflies, dragonflies come in range of colors from soft pastels to bold and vibrant colors. You can find dragonflies in red and pink, fuchsia and orange, blue and saffron, gold and emerald, black browns and every shared shade you can think of. Added to that the metallic sheen of some and you have plenty of colors to choose from for you color scheme. Dragonfly wings can be translucent, simply transparent or they may be colored, spotted or banded. Generally the ones with clear wings tend to have vibrant colors on their body and tail. This pretty little thing gives us loads of ideas. It has pinks, purples, red, orange and blue and metallic grey or blue in the wings.

Dragonfly Perched on Edge of a StickDragonfly Perched on Edge of a Stick

Dragonflies have a delicate, ethereal look to them that lends well to a themed decor. Just echoing dragonfly tones against a pastel background creates a great effect. Pick out one of tbe contrasting jewelled metallic tones as a block color in curtains, throws or bedding to bring out the theme. Your carpeting can be somewhere in between your pastel walls and bold accents. You are gradually creating your room. And introduce different textures like satin and lace to represent alternately the body and wings.

&

&

For example, note how dragonfly here looks green but you will also note there is a red spot, subtle orange on the neck and the wings look dark. You could then paint the walls of your room a matching green and use red and orange accents - then introduce the texture of the wings with lace.

Many species change color as they mature, or may vary as the temperature changes. Females may be differently colored from males. All dragonflies emerge with barely any color, although hints of the adult pattern may be visible.

One of the most fascinating things about dragonflies and color is that they can appear to change color depending on the light. What may seem like transparent wings turn iridescent in sunlight.

Dragonfly themed decorative borders

For the walls

Once you decide to go for a dragonfly theme decor start off by picking base colors to build on. Look at pictures of dragonflies to pick out a color. It works best with a solid block color - a pastel shade that you would find in real dragonfly. For accent add a border featuring dragonflies either high up near the ceiling or at dado height.
