8 Must-Have Lights to Refresh & Brighten Your Home

Kyla Herbes, the interior designer and content creator behind the House Of Hipsters, has a killer instinct for home lighting. From neutral lamps to show-stopping chandeliers, we look to Kyla to light things up. One of Kyla’s go-to stores for lighting is Tuesday Made’s, whose lighting collection is handpicked by their staff. 

Let’s take a look at some of Kyla’s best light ensembles.

Speaking of vintage… second-hand stores are excellent places to track down one-of-a-kind lighting pieces or lampshades. Unlike other furniture items, like couches, that can hold on to smells and show wear and tear, used lamps are easy to clean and touch up—just be sure they still work by plugging it in before you buy!
