We all know how important lighting is when it comes to capturing the perfect Instagram photo (just ask selfie master Kim KW). So it shouldn't come as a surprise that our new favorite account to follow for home inspiration is, in fact, one created by a lighting brand. Hinkley's feed is definitely #homegoals, and we couldn't help but notice that the light fixtures are the defining point in what makes each space feel special, stylish, and—of course—well-lit. New to the lighting game? See our breakdown of the best fixtures for five rooms in your home.
The Living Room
Since you likely spend the majority of your at-home waking hours in this room, you want to make sure it feels as cozy as possible. A singular chandelier-style fixture above the defining point in the room (like that refurbished wood coffee table you've had your eye on) will do the trick.
Since your bed is the star of the show in the bedroom, try placing a fixture directly above it as opposed to centered on your ceiling. This will draw attention to any stunning art you've placed above your headboard too.
Have an island in your kitchen? Low-hanging pendant lighting offers a chic, modern look while brightening up the flowers or fruit bowl on your counter.
A modern multi-bulb fixture mounted flush against the wall will guarantee an ideal setup for flawless makeup application. If you have a deep counter, an ornate hanging fixture can offer the same results with a more unique vibe (we're trying this in our powder rooms ASAP).
Forget simple string lights—take it up a notch with elevated fixtures hanging above your outdoor table and other key areas you want to brighten up. Luckily for you, there's still time to throw a few more backyard summer barbecues.
