Check Lighting Off the List!
Well, we did it! We pulled the trigger and ordered our lighting. You probably won’t be surprised to learn that we went with some fixtures that weren’t presented to you in this post.
Ready? Let’s start with the main floor. We went with the dining room light that has been calling our names since Day One of the Great Lighting Search. However, we mixed it up and went with a different pendant than what we had originally chosen to compliment the dining room light because our #1 pendant blew the budget out of the water. The pretty little gold pendant is well within budget, compliments the dining room light nicely with the similar ball accent and is just plain pretty.
The foyer light is one you haven’t seen before on this blog. We really like this fixture because of the angles and shape. The top reminds me of a star, even though it doesn’t really look like a star at all. Just go with it. It also comes in a beautiful chandelier suitable for over a table (check it out in the Pearl Hardware showroom).
The exterior lights were also something we had no problem choosing. It seems our biggest challenge was the dining room and kitchen area, but the outdoor fixtures were a snap to pick out. The fan fixture will be installed in the covered back deck. It will provide the right amount of air movement should there be no breeze, and looks great too. The lantern is for the front entrance. If you recall from the 3D Rendering, the lantern will hang just above the curved window and the foyer light will be visible through the window. Need a refresher?
It will be neat to look back on the entire 3D rendering and compare it to the end result. More details on our stucco and stone finishes will be posted soon.
Let’s move up to the second floor, shall we?
We went with the neat cage-like fixture for the second, third and basement bedrooms. It has a nice touch of edge but won’t overpower the room. It’s just something a little different from your traditional bedroom light.
Next, check out that master bedroom chandelier! This one was easy for me to decide on, too. I knew I wanted a bit of sparkle and glam, so crystal was the way to go. The master bedroom has a coffered ceiling that Dieter from KDI Drywall will be building to look incredible. He’s got interesting products to make the ceiling really stand out. A beautiful ceiling + beautiful fixture = awesome master bedroom.
Lastly, we went with a traditional bathroom light bar for all the vanities (master, jack and jill, basement and powder room). It’s simple and pretty.
So, there you have it. The lighting decisions have been finalized and are currently en route. To see the beautiful fixtures we picked or browse hundreds of others, visit the Pearl Hardware showroom located in Regina, SK.
