When Hannah Godwin from Bachelor Nation reached out to us about designing her lighting plan, it was an automatic yes! Her beautiful home in San Diego was a breath of fresh air and a fun project to take on, alongside her LA-based interior designer Brooke Spreckman.
We asked Hannah to describe what her vision was and it was simple, but oh-so-good. Laid back, airy, timeless, and monochromatic. She wanted an all white color palette without anything falling flat, and we knew the lighting would play a big role in delivering the desired look. So, Brooke and our team opted for softer detailing and less brass to create a more timeless presentation with organic finishes. The end result was a seamless oasis of tonal whites and textures.
Less is More
Knowing that Hannah and Brooke were trying to achieve a “no fuss”, laid back, and calming space, we knew that our lighting deliverables needed to reflect just that. Gravitating toward a more glamorous and show-stopping fixture is an easy way to make a statement, but you can still create an impact with a fixture that has less volume. The Charlton Grande Triple Arm Chandelier by Aerin presented an airy feel on a bigger scale without overwhelming the space. The tiny brass detailing was just enough to warm up the living room without feeling too trendy.
Adding texture is such an important part of interior design, especially when you are wanting to achieve a monochromatic look. Texture prevents your space from falling flat and an easy way to achieve this is with lighting! The Nabu Floor Lamp by Regina Andrews adds contrast in front of the smooth curtains and sectional, creating depth and dimension within the space.
To create a seamless transition from the living room to the kitchen, the Lange Pendants by Hudson Valley where chosen to compliment the monochromatic tones throughout the home. The nature of the pendants allow your eyes to easily flow easily through the space. The all-white plaster finish and conical shape add visual interest and texture, creating a soft focal point in the room.
