Take it from Lisa Vanderpump, who knows that any space can be transformed with the right light in place. You'll get the bright idea if you step into any of the bars or restaurants that the Vanderpump Rules boss owns in Las Vegas and Southern California, where she mixes classic and modern pieces with natural ease.
We recently hopped between two of her four places in West Hollywood and tripped the light fantastic (i.e. took a million pictures of the décor for Instagram) in hopes that you would enjoy it as much as we did. If you're designing or rethinking your own space, there are all kinds of tips to be had in observing how Lisa makes everything lit!
These insanely cool bubble chandeliers are among the first you'll see when you walk into Tom Tom, Lisa's latest West Hollywood venture (and a partnership with her husband, Ken Todd, and Vanderpump Rules cast members Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz). They're also a sign that you're about to see all kinds of incredible light fixtures.
Seriously, have you ever seen triangular chandeliers? So modern and artistic, and so bright!
Or boho birdcage chic ones?
The back of Tom Tom is styled to look like a covered English garden with classic candelabra-style chandeliers and is one of the most requested sections to be seated for dinner.
Also in the Tom Tom garden is this even grander candelabra-style chandelier, which is paired with nearby hanging roses. Floral chandeliers = so hot right now.
This gold and teardrop crystal chandelier says drama and we're here for it!
Now let's take a look at some of the incredible lights at Pump, which is conveniently located just about four doors down from Tom Tom. This elegant cluster of crystal-encrusted beauties is located above the outdoor bar, where the Pump-tinis steadily flow!
If you prefer to drink inside at Pump, you'll be treated to sexy pink and purple lighting and this rather English-looking light fixture. It's a different mood from outside, but no less elegant.
Several of these striking green glass light vases hang in the Pump garden. They're stuffed with gold filament lights that look like fireflies and have an impossibly glam effect that's breathtaking even when it's still light outside.
Strings of crystals draped from the trees make a lovely accompaniment to blown glass vases filled with flowers.
Lisa, you sure do know how to light up any room!
