Style So Simple's Guide to Hanging Lighting Part 2...

Heyyy Lovlies,

Its FRIDAY!! So excited for the weekend and I actually extra love Fridays now. I have started scheduling all my virtual consultations for Fridays which I love! It's such a nice way to start the weekend by chatting and actually seeing(virtually) clients. Then tomorrow I am heading to Woodies to get some bits to do a little revamp in my apartment. So super excited for this and really hoping the lovely budgeting Barry helps me with the assembly :D

Sooo I promised I would draft a Part 2 to my lighting guide. This week I am looking at lighting tips for the living room and hallway :) I got some great questions from you guys via Instagram so hopefully this helps you :)

If you would like to take a look at The lighting Guide Part 1 click here :) It has some tips and design schemes for kitchens and dining areas :)

Anyways let's get right into it lovelies and as always ENJOY xxx


  • Try to keep your pendant light 210 cm from the bottom of the pendant light to the floor.

  • If you have high ceilings add between 6-7cm of height for each foot of ceiling above 8ft.

Natural Options...

Simple Hallway Pendant...

  • If possible leave a minimum leave a minimum of 75cm between multiply hanging pendant lights.

  • Leave a minimum space of 15cm between the entrance door to the bottom of the pendant light.

Statement Hallway Pendants...

  • For darker hallways adding in wall lights will create a warm ambiance. Always use warm lights not cool, and preferably have your lights on a dimmer switch.

  • Place wall lights 150 cm above the floor.

  • If your hallway is long and narrow try to allow about 250 cm to 300 cm between the lights.
