You will probably notice that when I post pics of our house I try my best to avoid the overhead lighting in my pictures. There is a good reason. All of the overhead light fixtures in the house are U G L Y!
This is my personal fav. I mean really. A florescent light fixture is bad enough, but the ceiling fan right next to it?
This one will get a makeover. (I'm actually really excited about this one.)
This one is just a typical brass/wood ceiling fan. Not pretty, but certainly not the ugliest ceiling fan in this house. Did you notice the bead/safety pin thing on the pull chain. Nice.
As you can see we have our work cut out for us in the lighting department. My question to you is what is your favorite type of fixed light source? Do you like chandeliers, recessed lighting, a drum pendant, something more builder grade, or something very unexpected. I know that my favs change depending on the room, but I think they all have their place.
We have some ideas about how we are going to address these light issues, but I'd like to hear your suggestions as well. Talk to me.
