There is something warm and cozy in earth tones. Terracotta, clay, desert rose, rust, umber, and more, earth shades add highlights and interest to rooms.
Light fixtures often capture that charm. Just consider the effects of these three examples of contemporary lighting design.


This stunning Seneca retro lamp is12.5 inches high, but it hangs on a chain as long as you want to highlight a tall narrow stairway, a formal foyer, or any room where you want its features.
Tall glass cylinders rise from a satin brass frame and that imitates a candle chandelier.
Each ribbed cylinder surrounds a 5-watt candle. The effect has light filing the shafts and reflecting from the satin brass.
Graceful, sleek, nostalgic, and lantern-like, the Caz pendant will mix and match with any clay interior.


 This chandelier is a decorative highlight for any bedroom, dressing room, or dining room. With arms stretching across 42-inches and hanging 45-inches from the ceiling.
Marcella hangs from delicately curved glass elements joined by a globe at the middle. A glass bowl at the bottom holds 12 graceful, arched, ribbed glass arms.
Marcella has no earth tones, but it will brighten a room filled with clay-colored walls or floors. It will brighten a corner or bring a trendy but classic touch to any room. You can see it adding an elegant coziness to your romantic bedroom or luxury bath.


Bella Glass Bubbles Chandelier is an eye-catching centerpiece hangs some 40-inches from the ceiling. A large shade hides seven 35-watt bulbs. Sleek and modern, it’s simple architecture is marked by a cluster of glass balls pouring from the center.
Those glass “raindrops” catch and reflect the light and add a touch of magic to a strikingly modern design. The bright white lamp, the polished nickel surface, and the cascade of glass bulbs makes this a perfect fixture to a room darkened with light colors. It’s just enough to offset the warm and cozy with something uniquely modern.
Earthy shades of clay remain a big interior design trend for the year. Painted walls, furniture fabrics, throws and rugs make surroundings warm and comfortable. But, they can also darken a room where lighting fixtures like these can make a difference.
