Kick Butt Lighting…and an awesome giveaway (open internationally!)

This is a sponsored giveaway in collaboration with Parrot Uncle and the Mom It Forward Blogger Network.

More than mere thwarters of darkness, light fixtures are among some of the most decorative elements we can use to adorn our homes.

And they are one of my fave things to drool over! Problem is, they can also be super pricey.

Which is why I was excited to learn about Parrot Uncle.

This online lighting store offers thousands of gorgeous fixtures, from table lamps, ceiling pendants, flush mounts and wall sconces, in a huge range of different styles. Prices are incredibly reasonable (like, hold-up reasonable – which, as a budget-focused decorator, is incredibly important) though the absolute best thing is that they offer FREE international shipping on all orders over $50! Yep, this company wires all of their fixtures to meet the electrical requirements of the destination country and then they ship for FREE worldwide (oh, did I mention that already?). And there’s no risk because returns are offered for FREE too!

Here are a few of my faves (judging from my picks I think I have a soft spot for their industrial style light fixtures)…

Lighting Under $100

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12

Lighting Under $200

With their inexpensive range of wall scones, economical flush mounts and discount home pendant lighting, Parrot Uncle offers-up real alternatives to those glorious high-end fixtures which used to either render us poor or hold us at arm’s length. It’s so exciting! I even had a little fun scrolling through my Pinterest pins and trying to find comparable fixtures to those in some of my fave rooms…

    Globe Shape Wooden Pendant Light with Crystal Ornaments is my favourite as it reminds me of my trip to New York recently and Grand Central Station.
