One of the perks of living in the 21st century is getting to enjoy coastal home decor inspired by the past but made for a modern lifestyle. There are so many ways to incorporate historic charm into a coastal home that it can be hard to decide which elements to use.
In design dilemmas like this, case studies are always helpful. Southern Living featured a home on Daufuskie Island that was built recently but designed to look like it has endured through centuries. Every element of the home is gorgeous, but one feature in particular jumped out at us: the house is filled with fantastic rustic lighting that speaks to an age gone by.
Your fixtures don’t have to be big to make statement. The simple gas light reproduction adds beautiful lines to this foyer.
The homeowners carry the same lighting theme into the living area with chandeliers.
This kitchen chandelier is the perfect blend of hard and soft.
Historical doesn’t necessarily mean predictable. These light fixtures over the kitchen island combine historical elements in a new way.
