Montage: 28 Hallways With Inspired Pendant Lights (In Multiples)

When I first started putting together my most recent post for the Lamps Plus blog, “7 Hallway Lighting Ideas,” I didn’t realize how helpful it was going to be. I’m a big fan of statement lighting, even before everyone had to have it. (I used a trio of pendants in a guest room on the Cape, two frosted and one clear; the electrician thought my order was wrong.)

A stylist once told me that lighting is like jewelry for the home. So, why has it not occurred to me to add interesting lighting to our dreary downstairs hallway? True, the ceiling may be too low for pendant lights, but anything would be an improvement. Must investigate.

In the meantime here are 28 hallways with lights in multiples. There’s an array of styles, from classic schoolhouse pendants and traditional lanterns to industrial cage lights, and others. I actually love all those red cords of the bare bulbs in the home featured in Dwell. And I love how the succession of glossy black drum shades in the offices of fashion label By Malene Birger looks so sophisticated. Also love the copper pendants in the Jean Louis Denoit-designed hallway. So many great examples here.

Just In: New Trad Designers 2013, Part I

Last year Traditional Home asked bloggers to submit their picks for its its list of up-and-coming New Trad designers. I submitted a gorgeous home decorated by Palmer Weiss in San Francisco, and she won a coveted spot in the 2012 TRADHome New Designers lineup. (This year they called on bloggers to submit  for its  Great Kitchens digital mag, and the Boston area designer I suggested, Liz Caan, scored a spot with her color-saturated dining room.)

As for the this year’s up-and-comers, that 2013 TRADHome digital issue came out this spring. The 10 New Trad Designers 2013 are incredible. The work ranges from thoughtfully serene to energetically colorful. It was hard to narrow down the images, so in order to show a few from each, I am splitting it into two parts. Today I’m featuring the work of interior designers Andrew Maier, Julie Goldman of J. Latter DesignKatie Lydon, Kristin Rocke of K. Rocke Design, and Taylor Borsari.

I’ve worked with Katie Lydon before, but the others are new to me. I’m psyched to have already had a chance to collaborate with Julie Goldman on an upcoming Matouk blog post. I’m hoping I’ll have a chance to work with the others soon too. Here is a sampling of the work of the first half of the New Trad Designers 2013.
