It’s All About The Lighting

***This is a sponsored post partnering with Parrot Uncle Lighting – all ideas and opinions are my own.*

Moving into a new house, old or new, there is always decorating challenges.  Paint colors are always on the top of the list… flooring, furniture, appliances… the list goes on.  BUT, lighting is definitely the jewel of a room.  One area which should not be saved for last, truly… it’s all about the lighting.  It’s the added touch which can show personality and make a room shine.

When moving into a home in a planned community, like I did, the lighting options are all the same.  My neighbors have the same lighting.

Every. Single. One. Of. Us.

I believe lighting creates personality and transforms a room.  I definitely want something different than my neighbors. (and I am pretty sure they don’t want the same cookie cutter look either)  Today I am going to share with you a pretty awesome lighting company called Parrot Uncle.  They have a wide variety of lighting options and stellar prices… need I say more.

Do you remember my dining room?

The chandelier is okay, but it doesn’t give the look I am going for.  I want European vintage mixed with rustic and a little french farmhouse.

To the left of my dining room is a stairway.

The stairs are lit from the bottom set of stairs, but not the top.  Adding sconces to the stairway would make a huge impact to a bare wall and light the way up the stairs.  I have my eye on a few of these…

Parrot Uncle Pendant Lighting has just what I am looking for…

Isn’t this gorgeous?  They also have matte black, but I am still loving the sparkle of chrome. 

In this house we have a couple long halls which have recessed lights.  I don’t mind recessed lights, but I do feel they don’t add much character to a space.  Instead, I would swap out the recessed lights for these

Our bedrooms need lighting as well.  Wall sconces are beautiful flanking beds.  They are easy to turn off at night and back on in the morning and give extra light for reading.  Here are some that I thought were unique and perfect.
