Sorry to report that I still haven’t received my new camera so there will be no in progress pictures today.
I know many people do not like overhead lighting but I think every room could use a nice chandelier. It doesn’t have to function as the main lighting in the room as there obviously needs to be additional lighting options (can lights or lamps, etc.). I also love the ease of flipping a switch on the wall to illuminate the room.
So now I’m in a house with open ceiling junction boxes in almost every room and I’ve just begun to buy the new fixtures. Yesterday, two of these lovely diddies arrived and I’m over the moon:
The David Hicks pendants are going above my island. Now I need to find a complementary pendant for the space above the sink (as I thought it would be too much with another one so close). Furthermore, the dining room is right across from the kitchen and I need a chandelier to hang from the ceiling. The biggest issue is that I don’t want the chandelier to block our wonderful view from the dining room. So I think the best option and decision is to look for something with glass globes similar in shape to the David Hicks pendant but clear so as to not obstruct the view. These are the options that I’m considering:
The budget might make the decision for me but I’m still on the lookout for other options.
I hope to have a camera soon so I can take some pictures of the pendants already in place!
