We’ll give you some tips and show some suggestions on how you can effectively choose, mix and match your lighting fixtures. Let Home Cartel help you incorporate different styles without making your space look like a garage sale.
1. Choose the focal point of your space and let the rest flow
Start by choosing the bigger things for your space, including your chandelier. For some places, chandeliers are the center of attraction. If you have a flashy and sparkly chandelier, then you should have a complementary color scheme for your floor, table and wall lights.
