  • Cool Your Home with a Bronze Ceiling Fan

    Introduce beautiful breezy style to your home indoors and out with the distinctive look of bronze ceiling fans. Ceiling fans have a reputation for being unattractive or unsophisticated even if they are highly practical and energy efficient. But one look at these stylish bronze ceiling fans will change your mind.

    Warm climates mean people spend lots of time outdoors. For those hot days on the porch an outdoor ceiling fan is a necessity.

    Industrial/Mission-style bronze outdoor ceiling fan

    The Tercel Outdoor Ceiling Fan is a blend of industrial, Mission and contemporary design styles. An integrated light kit offers overall room lighting, while a hand-held remote control lets you control the fan from a distance.

    With reversible walnut and dark walnut finish blades, this luxury bronze ceiling fan will keep you cool all summer long. Engineered for the outdoors with water-resistant wood and metal, install this anywhere that needs an extra breeze.

    When installed indoors, Ceiling fans help maintain a constant temperature in the room to prevent the air conditioner from working too hard. Fans help circulate fresh air from open windows so "canned" air doesn't even have to be used.

    Operating a ceiling fan requires no more electricity than a 100 watt bulb but can remove up to 40% off your energy bill when used consistently. That makes ceiling fans an option that’s stylish for your home, the planet, and your wallet.

  • Dine in Style With Pendant Lighting

    Possibly one of the most fun stages in designing a dining room is the lighting. There are so many options, including statement chandeliers, but my personal favorite is pendant lighting. The range of styles is never-ending and so fun.

    Cluster pendant lighting.

    Whether you're entertaining or just dining solo at home, cluster pendant lighting provides a fun environment. Try clustering at different levels like this idea above.

    It's best to keep the pendant style simple if you're going to hang several together... A type of globe pendant style would be perfect.

    Lighting can provide the icing on top of the design cake. While this dining space above is perfectly rustic and modern, that basket style pendant adds the perfect detail.

    The size of the lighting is an important factor in any room, including the dining room. There are lots of drum-shade pendants, but this small one above is perfect for this tiny dining room.

    Monotone dining room with pendant lighting.

    There are always exceptions to every rule. If you want a minimal, modern look like this open dining room above then it's ok to choose a pendant light that might be a little under-scale.

    While mini pendant lights make their presence known, they never clutter a perfectly minimal design.

    What kind of pendant light fixtures do you use in your home?
