Unique Light Fixture Ideas

Lighting is one of those decorating things that I don’t often think about. It’s kind of just there, and so I don’t worry about it. But lighting can actually make a huge impact on your space. It can brighten it up, and it can also lend a fun decorative element. I’ve found some really interesting and unique light fixture ideas that have inspired me to rethink the light fixtures in my own house. I hope they inspire you too!
