One thing that instantly transformed my dining room space was adding a modern pendant light and taking out my old yellow tinted wrought iron chandelier. It was such a simple (and affordable) swap that helped to make my home feel more modern, unique and put together. I think a lot of people don’t think to switch out lighting, maybe it’s intimidating, potentially expensive, but it isn’t. Or at least it doesn’t have to be. It’s something that you can do yourself (hello easy DIY!) and when you shop around for the right piece at the right price, you’ll feel like a home decor maven. And my favorite perk? Store your old light fixture so when you move you can take your new favorite with you. Or do what I did, and sell it on Craigslist to pay for the new one. The latter is my favorite thing to do.

Last week I discovered a trend I have failed to embrace, black and white. And since then, I am mastering it. Back again with a black and white ensemble that is simple and chic. I think you may be seeing a lot more of this combination. It’s so easy to throw together and you feel like you’re stylish even though you’re wearing simple basics.
