If you have a large space or tall ceilings, installing an oversized fixture may be the way to go. There are simple, modern designs that not only add beautiful light to a space, but also feel like a piece of art. In some instances (like modern interiors) a simple design like this overscale pendant by Crystorama will have MAJOR impact.
This entryway offers a dramatic and memorable welcome. Stunning chevron flooring, textured wallpaper and a mod oversized light fixture really make a meaningful impact.

Interesting textures, patterns and materials give life to this neutral living room. A cast stone fireplace is the focal point, and exposed wood beams create interest overhead. Curtains add movement and color to the space.

To accentuate the natural light that pours into the space from the wall of windows designers added mirrors on all sides of the gym. By capturing the light, the space looks brighter and more open, creating an inviting, invigorating environment for this stylish gym.
As patrons come up the stairs, they are greeted by the sight of a wraparound geometric wall covering highlighted by the natural light that spills through the windows. The colors reflect the light, making the space feel bright, open and inviting.
Designers were challenged to create a social hub that was activated through color, so they used a neutral color palette to anchor the space, while the colorful, geometric wall covering that extended throughout the space added a pop of color.
