The 3-day Valentine’s day weekend is almost here, and what do I have on my mind? Lighting! We have been working on small projects around our house, and they make me lust after new lighting – I got it bad. For instance, I look at our lovely new window seat by our dining room table and what do I see? A cheap light fixture we put up to replace the hideous one that was there when we moved in. In this area, I would love to get a classic chandelier light fixture that won’t go out of style too quickly, but definitely fits the tone of our home. I haven’t found one that I absolutely cannot live without, but here are a few options:
This one is pretty classic. It looks very laid back and homey. I think it has nice, clean lines and is very aesthetically pleasing to the eye. I think it would be fun to switch out the lamp shades to create different looks – that would be very compatible with my need to re-arrange things over and over again.
This one makes me smile. I am a very picky person when it comes to lighting – just ask the hubs. I prefer a glow, rather than a spotlight… so I typically use lamps instead of over-head lighting. I feel that this chandelier would give off the BEST glow… definitely a contender…
Anyway, I still have a lot to decide, but I know I definitely want to replace our dining room chandelier sooner than later. I also would like to replace our lighting in our kitchen and family room spaces… I am not sure what i want for those areas, so I will keep you posted on what I find. I am hoping to fit a visit into a few stores this weekend to check out lighting in-person, rather than online… so we’ll see. If you know of any good websites or have seen anything similar to what I have posted here, let me know! I am always up for suggestions.
