light it up

I’ve recently updated this list and I am loving the direction our lighting is going. I never would’ve guessed that planning and purchasing light fixtures would make me so giddy! They really are the jewelry of a room. And we clearly like the brassy blingy type! I intentionally left out our bedroom in this infographic, because selecting reading sconces has been really tricky. I might dedicate and entire post to help me decide. After we rearranged our bedroom, we are realizing how much we miss our reading light.

  1.  Kitchen — above the sink surrounded by alabaster white cabinets.
  2.  Office — a gold gleaming Alvar Aalto ceiling pendant.
  3.  Dining room — main chandelier, above the white saarinen table & black eames chairs.
  4.  Kitchen — ceiling pendant, has movable arms, compliments brass fixtures.
  5.  Bathroom — above the sink + mirror.
  6.  Guest room — getting painted a darker grey-green shade.
  7.  Mudroom — white slatted walls, black painted wood floor.
  8.  Living room — reading light near the sofa.
  9. Office — sits on top of a wooden desk in a bright white room.
  10.  Bathroom — main ceiling pendant, compliments all the brass fixtures in the room.
  11.  Dining room — sits atop vintage wood credenza, with pale grey-white walls.
  12.  Living room — ceiling pendant set off-centered from the mateo, creates lovely pattern.
