Ceiling fans add a designer touch to any room

With the addition of new styles and functionality, designer ceiling fans are becoming a focal point for any space.

Fans have graced the ceilings of sunrooms, living rooms, and bedrooms for some time. But the latest designer ceiling fan styles do more than just cool; they add a designer touch to any space. Here are a few favorite styles—and some advice on where to try them.

If you need: A pop of color
Try: Cranbook modern ceiling fan
Works great: in kids rooms, arts and crafts rooms, kitchens

Functional and fun, Cranbrook – especially in mint – is reminiscent of something you’d see in an old-fashioned ice cream parlor. Yet its blonde oak mid-century inspired blades give it a contemporary edge. The low-profile housing is designed to work well in rooms with lower ceilings and in smaller spaces.

Find all of these styles (and more!) at itsahunter.com.

If you need: A finishing touch for eclectic interiors
Try: Bennett transitional ceiling fan
Works great: In any room!

Bennett may have a traditional form, but it’s far from boring. The matte black finish includes a smoked glass globe for a touch of sophistication. If your aesthetic of choice calls for bold color or a mixture of furniture styles, this unassuming-yet-elegant fan is likely to fit right into the mix. Bonus: This ceiling fan comes in two different mounting systems to accommodate high ceilings and lower ceilings.

If you need: To highlight vaulted ceilings
Try: Ronan caged ceiling fan
Works great: In the great room, living room or bedroom

Sporting minimalist looks with just a slight bit of shine, Ronan feels like the “it girl” of ceiling fans. This style feels at home in almost any space, whether your design aesthetic leans toward farmhouse, zen or cottage. The sophistication of the brushed gold cage adds a hint of glamour to any space.

If you need: A cool breeze on cue
Try: Mill Valley modern farmhouse ceiling fan
Works great: In living rooms as well as covered patios and porches

The Mill Valley is damp rated, meaning it can withstand the elements on your covered porches and patios but still look beautiful in indoor spaces like living rooms and kitchens. With the pendant inspired body and rustic ceiling fan blade finishes, the Mill Valley ceiling fan fits in rooms with farmhouse and rustic decor.

If you need: A stunning finish to your casual space
Try: Maybeck casual ceiling fan
Works great: Mudrooms, dining rooms, game rooms

Inspired by Mission craftsmanship, the Maybeck ceiling fan fits naturally with bungalow architecture. The Maybeck’s casual finishes play well with the warm tones of leather furniture and wood planked floors. This fan’s gorgeous light fixture makes it a chic addition to a room needing a touch of drama.

Patio trends to refresh your outdoor living space

Hunter Fan Company Designer Patrick O'ConnellWe’re in that perfect part of spring that makes for the best patio weather: Not too hot and not too cold, a nice breeze going.

Patios are taking on a refreshing new look and role these days. People want to spend more time outside, especially on nice days, so we’re seeing more seamless transitions from indoor and outdoor spaces. A lot of home comforts are moving outside – kitchens, dining rooms, living rooms.

Patio spaces are generally considered more casual than formal, but we’re noticing touches of luxury. Now, when we talk about luxury with design, we’re talking about the experience. Think about when you buy a luxury brand item: You’re buying it becuase you want to experience something elevated. It’s the same concept with patios. Whether it’s farmhouse or contemporary design, a luxury patio is about creating an ambiance and an experience.

To help you add a luxury experience to your patio, my team and I want to share some design trends we think you’ll love.

Vintage lighting

One of the things I’ve been seeing a ton of are vintage type lighting options: Edison bulb string lights or updated versions of tiki torches or gas lamps.
PS: Edison bulbs are definitely not out, like some would say, but they are evolving into more modern applications.

String lights have evolved from twinkle lights and chili peppers to little decorative bulbs or little covers that aren’t kitschy but unique. It’s that extra ambient light.

Natural materials…

Get a huge amount of natural materials; enormous amounts of it – rough stone, wood boards, brickwork. You get those natural texture and design elements and neutral colors that go well with any decor.

…and color

I think color in general is welcome. It’s almost a waste if where you have an opportunity to do color and you do something boring, it’s such a missed opportunity.

Hardscaping

Stairs built into landscaping, knee high walls, potted plants – any way you can add hardscaping without destroying the natural elements build interest.

OVERSIZED FURNITURE

We were at a hotel terrace in Los Angeles and it wasn’t just a couch, it was the equivalent of a king size bed, so it was very exotic to sit on with the curtain around it and the pillows with the fireplace nearby.
