Lighting Trends: Make the Switch to Teal, Brass or Starburst

beaded chandelierI was so excited to receive a recent trend report from Mark Moussa, the Dallas-based entrepreneur who founded Arteriors, a leading resource for decorative accessories, residential lighting and accent furniture. I can’t believe Arteriors has been around since 1987! Congrats, Mark, on creating a long-lasting business!

Moussa and his team create products in everything from brass and bronze to nickel, wood and porcelain. He says three top lighting trends right now are starburst designs, works in teal and brass!

A while ago I posted a blog about beads in design and chose a lovely beaded chandelier, shown at left, in a teal-ish tone that’s evocative of the teal Mark speaks of. I love teal because it’s so peaceful and yet rich and full-bodied, too! And if you know me well, you know that I love ocean colors, so teal is a regular part of my repertoire.  Note Mark’s Viola chandelier in the photo. It’s kind of a distant cousin to the one I chose a while back.

Mark says teal is luxurious  and I agree!

Arteriors creates my favorite lighting, accessories and accent furniture. In fact, I just purchased two pendants for my kitchen to hang above my island and I can’t wait to show you how they look when the kitchen is done.

Have you used teal (or bronze or star burst styles) in your interior lighting? Let us know how it worked out!
