The Lighting Style Guide

It’s that time of the year where evenings have become noticeably darker and the cold nights are drawing in. But when the weather outside is gloomy, it’s time to make the inside of your home bright and inviting. So what better time to invest in Peppermill's commercial and residential lighting ranges than now? Read our lighting guide below for style inspiration to elevate your interior.

Pendant Lighting

Most commonly used above kitchen islands, dining tables and stairs, Pendant lighting can help to scatter and soften light. Our Lunar Antique Brass Pendant Light Range is a great way to achieve a warmer feel that will also be sure to capture people’s attention. Each pendant features a stunning shaped glass shade in a mixture of unusual shapes, making it a perfect focal point. Hang above your dining table as a centrepiece just like Stefan Marinkovic has done, below.

Or, if you prefer a more uniformed look, placing three of our Gemini Pendant Light Range together will achieve a harmonious balance above any kitchen island, bar or restaurant. Sitting on a long metal chain and encased with a cage-style metal surround, these striking and strong lights will definitely bring urban style to your interior.

Atmospheric Lighting

Creating a warm and atmospheric lighting can completely change how you feel in your space. Avoid harsh lighting over the darker months if you want to create a warm, cosy mood. Our Mason Jar Light Range is the perfect way to achieve this. These retro style lights each have a glass jar shade. In doing so, these jam jar lights are an easy way to add colour to a neutral interior; choose from blue, green, orange, red, or yellow.

Or if you’re looking for more of a simple statement piece, then the Nova Pendant Light Range is a great choice. Inspired by Nordic interiors, this sleek-styled light is both discrete and functional. Each light has a pale wood coupler which complements both the Grey and White shade colours.

Industrial Lighting

Perhaps lighting with a laid back ambience is more your style? Industrial lighting may be your best bet. The stripped-back, unfinished style of industrial lighting remains popular as ever. Not only are they the perfect commercial lighting for  cool cafes and trendy bars, They’re also just as well suited to domestic spaces, as you can easily incorporate this style of residential lighting  into your living space. 

Our Industrial Style Glass Lighting Range is the perfect commercial or residential lighting fixture  to add a pop of colour to your domestic or business. Each light in the Industrial Style Glass Lighting Range is reclaimed and rewired and comes in seven bold colours. These gorgeous lights add a wonderful splash of colour and would be particularly suited to a restaurant or café interior, as demonstrated by 

Alternatively, you can opt for warmer metal tones with your industrial lighting. The Cygnus Metal Pendant Light provides a slightly cosier, vintage-meets-modern aesthetic. These stunning pendants are available with a choice of two metal shades to suit your interior; Antique Brass and Zinc. In doing so, this gorgeous light is in keeping with the industrial look while creating a homely atmosphere.

Creating a warm and cosy residential lighting scheme can completely change how your home feels during the winter months. So don’t dwell in darkness this year, make your lighting work for you.  Whether it’s a cosy reading corner, a dining area or socialising space, make use of ceiling and wall lights as well as lamps and candles to create the ambience you desire. 

Peppermill Interiors has a wide range of residential and commercial lighting options.
