There’s no better time for revitalizing your interior lighting design than the holidays, the season is full of joy, family, and moments of inspiration and comfort in your home design. When setting the tone for your home’s style, lighting is the bow on top of the present that pulls your space together. Lighting is essential for ambience and making sure that your furnishings are shown in their best light. We’re here with our definitive guide to holiday interior lighting design, helping you find your inspiration for your home’s seasonal décor.
Seasonal Interior Lighting Design
Seasonal lighting is going to mean something different for everyone. Depending on your home’s style, you’re going to be aiming for a different atmosphere for the holiday season. Are you looking to create cozy, warm spaces that feel comforting, or are you ready to brighten up your space and entertain throughout the season? The first step in choosing seasonal lighting is defining your home’s style and your needs.
That’s not to say you can’t have multifaceted lighting—the right interior design expert can piece together a space with functional lighting that suits several purposes. However, the structure of your lighting fixtures can’t change as easily as the intensity or tone of the light itself. This means that the design’s impact on your space needs to match the style you’re after—seasonal inspiration or otherwise.
There are many ways to have “seasonal” lighting without it overtaking your space. In fact, there are many lighting fixtures that suit the holiday season when balanced with holiday decorations but are otherwise suited to year-round use. We’ve collected some spotlight creations from some of our favorite designers to help you find your inspiration.
Designer Spotlight: Holiday Lighting
Holiday interior lighting design needs to work for your space and your lighting requirements. We recommend working with an interior design expert to get the most out of your space, but you can still find your home vision and bring your style to the appointment.
Hubbardton Forge: Aura Collection
Nothing says the holiday season like sparkle. Out of all of Hubbardton Forge’s offerings, we love the Aura collection as a holiday statement piece. It’s modern, sleek, but with a speckled glass finish that is reminiscent of snow. However, this collection’s contemporary feel gives it a home outside of the holiday season, too. It casts light from LEDs downwards, creating an “aura”, making it a fitting central piece for dining areas and conversation spaces.
The Aura collection is available in two types of glass, seeded and clear, and two finishes, sterling and dark smoke. The natural metallic and glass components complement a wide range of interior design styles, elevating a space with ease. The hanging pendant style construction leaves open space in your interior, drawing the eye to the design and creating visual interest when observing a room in its entirety.
Corbett: Parc Royale
The Parc Royale collection is the perfect fit for a home that is inspired by nature. This collection of chandeliers is finished in vintage gold leaf, giving it a natural and textured appearance that reflects warmer light beautifully. The design evokes candles held in twists of golden branches, creating an inviting winter season atmosphere. This design inspiration is also available in other formats, such as a simplified semi flush and other sized chandeliers. This is a sure piece to bring holiday warmth into your home and add style and sophistication to your space.
The golden finish and natural design also make this piece a good year-round staple. Homes accented with warm metallic finishes and greenery will blend perfectly with the Parc Royale collection, adding a golden glow to your interior lighting design.
Mitzi’s designs are smooth, contemporary, and simple. It’s in this simplicity that sophistication shines through, along with the quality craftsmanship and care in the design process. This means that Mitzi pieces feel right at home in a space that requires understated and sophisticated elegance. For a holiday season home update, we recommend the Victoria collection.
This understated pendant collection is available in vintage gold leaf and textured black, with the pendant orb a glossy white. Almost reminiscent of Christmas baubles with gold leaf accents, this pendant collection wouldn’t look out of place at a holiday party. Still, it retains a clean and sleek look that easily elevates any space throughout the year.
There’s an age-old debate when it comes to holiday décor: cool and icy or warm and bright? We have a clear contender for warm and bright by Troy lighting: the Beryl pendant. This glass dome pendant has patina bronze hardware that blends into a bronze-finished ombre on the glass itself. The bottom of the dome has a rippled glass effect, striking the balance between natural and modern. The Beryl pendant is available in two sizes, meaning that you can create a cohesive interior no matter the space.
Hudson Valley Lighting: Abrams
Hudson Valley Lighting always delivers quality wrapped up in expert craftsmanship and design. The Abrams collection is no different. This design gives a modern play on old chandeliers, evoking lit candles without all the frills. This results in a clean and contemporary fixture that still manages to adapt to both sleek and cozy home styles.
Abrams is available as a chandelier and as a matching wall sconce, in both aged brass and polished nickel finishes. Minimalist but still eye-catching, this design was made for dining and entertaining spaces. It is a perfect complement to match metallic tones in the rest of the space or add visual interest with extra shine.
