It's interesting to me that my latest design clients all have living areas with an open floor plan. Meaning that the living, dining and kitchen area are all open and connected. One of the most important aspects of getting an open floor plan look right is making sure that the lighting mix works well together. This can be difficult to do which is why my clients go looking for a designer in the first place.
In one of my recent client spaces breakfast area ( see above photo ) we used a Serge Mouille style light. With all of the other light fixtures in the open space, we needed something that didn't overwhelm the space yet still be stylish and practical. You can get an original Serge Mouille light or there are plenty of 'look alikes' out there if you are wanting an affordable option too.
It's a look that has been around for years, launched in Paris circa 1953. At that time, they were a staple fixture in the most chic Parisian interiors. Currently, the light is being used all over the world in the most gorgeous of spaces. It's on trend, adds a chic element and works itself into any style space. Take a look at some of my favorite rooms with the chic light fixtures and see if your home needs one too. It could be just the fixture you have been looking for.

I think the gold dipped light bulb is the perfect addition for this lighting look. So chic.

In addition to the ceiling fixture, the sconces are a fantastic look.
The floor lamp is also very effortlessly chic.
