Most of the time when you think of color in the home, your mind goes to the wall colors or fabric colors or carpet colors. What about the color of your lighting? We’re not talking about flashing DJ lights or lava lamps. You can keep it mature and sophisticated while adding colored lighting fixtures with a contemporary crystal chandelier.
So why is color so important, anyway? The color scheme of a room is more than it seems to be. It defines the atmosphere of the room and the feeling you get when you’re in it. Colors can make a space feel bigger or smaller, energetic or relaxing, welcoming or uninviting. For example, blues and greens tend to be more soothing and relaxing, while reds and oranges are more energizing and bold.
The pendant crystal chandeliers are ideal for the modern home with their geometric design and colorful glow. Some are multicolored, like the crystal pictured here, while others are one solid color. Many modern designs feature overall neutral palettes, so a colored crystal chandelier is the perfect accessory to display a pop of color for added interest. There’s no correct color – it all depends on your personal taste and the feeling that you want to create in the space.
