As seen on season 1 of Tiny Luxury, this 140-square-foot home was filled with high-end, industrial-style caged light fixtures at a fraction of what it would cost to outfit a standard-sized house. Perks!
A wall-mounted brass lantern adds a nautical touch to this timeless dining room combining rustic and polished elements into a transitional country-elegant space that's inviting for both family and friends.
A distressed wood cabinet and vintage gold leaf mirror create a charming vanity set up. A gold nightstand echoes the vintage flair, but contributes a different finish. Mounted light fixtures are affixed around the mirror adding soft light to the natural sunshine from the draped window.
A vintage light fixture fills the open space to add subtle decor over the stairs in this hall. The handrail and newel caps compliment the hardwood floor coloring leaving the white balusters looking bright between the wood details. A classic, small sofa and framed mirror fit the simple and sophisticated style.
A watercolor canvas gives soft decoration to the pale blue wall color. Vintage light fixtures frame the painting adding a warm glow to the cool toned design. A wood table is set up as the working desk with space for a laptop, books and personal decorative touches. A white chair is upholstered at the seat with a soft floral fabric while the back opening displays a gray plaid pattern.
A large linen light fixture hangs from the vaulted ceiling in this transitional master bedroom with an olive green accent wall. A vintage area rug provides additional color paired with throw pillows on the neutral bed with a leather headboard.
This living room features a classic craft front door and arch hallway door leading into the connected dining room. A stylish gray paint fits the soft, neutral color scheme creating a bright and inviting room. Yellow tulips add pops of life and color. Vintage country light fixtures mounted on the wall add a warm glow and decorative detail.
Being thrifty also can help you find fixtures with a history. DIY blogger Dena Stormer snapped up this ceramic light fixture, from a Luby’s cafeteria, for just $40 at a flea market in Texas. All it needed was a gloss white paint to freshen it up. She made the calendar/diner sign and crafted curtains using vintage chintz fabric.
While shopping for art, don’t get distracted by unattractive frames. You can always move the art into a more modern frame that better suits your style and space. These gold tone frames work really well and tie into the room’s vintage light fixture.
Flat panel wooden drawers float above graphic, black and white floor tile in this eclectic bathroom. A round, black frame mirror looks sleek and contemporary against the classic subway tile backsplash. The vintage light fixture adds character while staying true to the minimalistic aesthetic of the space.
This mid-century modern nightstand is a stylish touch beside a comfortable bed in gray-blue linens. Fresh flowers by the bed are a nice touch, and add a pleasing pop of color. A vintage light fixture with Edison lightbulbs is a charming (and functional) throwback.
