About 8 months ago we moved into our dream home and it has been so much fun making it our own! It truly doesn’t even feel real most of the time. When we started looking for a new home, I honestly didn’t think we would ever find a brand new home that fit our style. Our plan was to build or do a total gut job on an auction house. To my surprise, I couldn’t believe it when we found a home that had almost everything we were looking for: dark hardwoods, gray walls and a white kitchen with a modern rustic feel. Sold!
There is just one tiny thing about the house that I haven’t gelled with. The light fixtures. They just aren’t my style. I don’t dislike them, I think they are beautiful and go well with the house, but I also want our HOME to represent us and also be cohesive. So it’s my mission to gradually switch out all the light fixtures, starting with our kitchen. And I need your help!
Our family room is straight across from the kitchen in one big open space, and we have the most industrial chic table being finished for our dining area. The goal is to find something that marry the style of the kitchen with a more industrial look.
Here are a few top contenders… What is your favorite? Or do you have another idea?
I really like how this Crystal Chandelier blends the bronze farmhouse look with the glam. I has a Restoration Hardware look but a fraction of the cost! I think it would help blend some of the finishes in our downstairs.
Then there is this Mirrored Orb Chandelier from Pottery Barn. I’ve been wanting to put one in our house somewhere, maybe this would be the perfect place!
I’ve also thought about going an entirely different route, omitting all the crystals and going with a more modern look with this Bubble Glass Chandelier with Edison bulbs. I would just need to find it at a MUCH cheaper price or DIY it.
The family room has a lot of oil rubbed bronze pieces in it, so maybe this fixture would help tie things together as well? Or would it be too dark? Oh decisions, decisions!
Help! Which would you choose?
