Lighting can truly make or break a living space. If your lighting is too bright, the wrong shade, or placed in an undesirable location you will inadvertently create a tense or unwelcoming ambience. Bad lighting influences your home's overall aesthetic, with dreadful illumination contributing to an uninviting atmosphere within your domestic spaces. On the flip side, the correct lighting can magnify a positive mood, creating a pleasant, restful and sociable space. 

But how do you know what light is the right light? Essentially it all depends on the space in question. There are always different styles of lighting suited to different areas of your abode, and it will generally come down to what your desired ambience might be. There is however one light that offers a multipurpose and versatile option. Today on homify we are looking at the pendant light, a brilliantly useful fitting that, when hung from above, can offer a delicate and elegant glow, while illuminating your interior with sophistication. 

For more information, take a look at our 9 seriously stylish pendant light examples below, and guarantee your dwelling is pleasantly lit and comfortably lustrous.

1. Contrast creator

The first pendant light we are looking at is a truly gorgeous and contrast creating feature for this dining room. Dramatic and bold against the all-white colour scheme, this is an unforgettable and alluring use of pendant lighting. 

2. DIY-chic

Fancy yourself a little weekend DIY? These beautiful lights could be created in your own home with repurposed bottles, a branch, and some thin natural rope. 

3. More is more!

Why have one pendant when you can have countless pendants? This chandelier-esque light fitting is beautifully central to this living room, and imparts a feeling of opulence and refinement. 

4. Industrial sophistication

6. Patterns and motifs

Create mood with a light fitting that shines a motif on your surrounding walls. This example is a wonderful demonstration, which adds character and personality within its space.
