Holiday Magic Begins at Home

5 Lighting Looks Made For Gathering With Those You Love

It’s here! The season for entertaining is upon us! For many people any day starting in November (or even the day after Halloween) marks the beginning of the holiday frenzy. While we love our holiday to-do lists, it’s easy to forget that November also marks the beginning of a season of gratitude… a time to slow down, spend time with those you love and give thanks. 

With this in mind, we believe that a beautiful and intentional space helps set the stage for magical moments and memories with those you love most. Lighting, of course, is one of our favorite ways to achieve this! 

So, with Thanksgiving right around the corner, here are 5 magical lighting looks to help you celebrate this special season with loved ones:

Bold Pendants + Accent Lighting:

This bright and inviting kitchen is just begging for a few holiday guests! We love the bold pendants and thoughtful accent lighting. Set on dimmers, this space will be the perfect place to host the whole family from sun up to sun down. 

Warm and Welcoming:

Come for family, stay for conversation. We love how this calm and welcoming space is headed by an extra long island highlighted by the three large white and brass pendants. The positioning of the island is ideal for prepping holiday meals and serving up festive drinks, while also still being part of the conversation. The lighting accentuates this value without competing for attention, and we couldn’t love it more! We can just hear the holiday music in the background right now!

Let Your Light Shine:

Let your light shine this holiday season with lighting that reflects your personal style! Guests love coming into a home that is an authentic reflection of those who live there, so go ahead, set your creative spirit free! This beautiful space looks like the perfect spot to grab a holiday cocktail and catch up with family and friends while waiting for the turkey to do its thing!

For Hosting and Toasting:

An entertainer’s dream space! Plenty of room here for cooking and holiday merrymaking of course. The lighting selection serves as functional art, complimenting the space as a whole. Set on a dimmer, these pendants will easily be able to adjust and help set the desired mood, no matter what time of day or night you’ll be hosting guests!

Gather round the table or belly up to the bar, this season is all about putting others first. It’s about reconnecting, engaging in meaningful conversations, making memories and having fun! We love this well-thought out space, it’s oozing with style, yet begs for interaction with guests! Holiday game night anyone?!
