Colorful metal pendants are the perfect lighting choice for a quirky, modern farmhouse that reads both timeless and unique. By incorporating pieces that represent a wide array of styles, you’ll achieve an elevated version of a rustic modern space. For an easy way to get the look, add metal pendants in a bold hue to above a dining table, kitchen island, or your bathroom vanity. Or opt for an eclectic bedroom with bright pendants over your nightstands.
