Let There Be Light

When most of the chandeliers and sconces were installed last week, I got a big thrill.
They've been boxed up for far too long, so seeing them all lit up is a big deal.
Especially in the master closet where a small crystal chandelier and seven brass picture lights from Pottery Barn illuminate my favorite room in the house!

Also from Pottery Barn, a crystal chandelier for the master bedroom.

In the living room, I had the electrician wire the cathedral ceiling for a chandelier.
I chose this large, airy French style light from Wisteria.
It's the perfect size.

Also in the living room and dining room, there are these sconces, eight altogether from Aiden Grey.
I topped them with a burlap shade to give them more ooomph.

For 15 months, this chandelier has been packed away.
I insisted on taking it from the old house.
Unfortunately, it's too big for the new dining room.  
Ugh, I planned my whole house around this chandelier!
Not really, but kind of....

Downstairs, in the family room, I found these sconces from Rejuvenation.
Notice the grasscloth?  More on that later...

There's a weird hallway downstairs that I'm planning on turning in to a office
Instead of cans, I installed these hanging pendents from Restoration Hardware.

They tie in with the family room sconces and add warm light to this awkward space.

Last, but not least, I found these nautical brass lights for the atrium.  
They're from Pottery Barn and they resemble a ship's porthole.

I love them, even though they don't exactly match the outside lights around the front and side of the house.

Things are moving along quite fast now.   We should be moved in by mid January.
We better be, because I gave my 30 day notice!  

Pin It!

Fun, fun, fun! Even partially finished, everything looks so clean and light! Can't wait to see it when you're in it! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

What gorgeous lighting you chose! Can't wait to see more of your lovely home!

Hmmmmm --I think I would find a place for that light from your last house -- don't believe I would be letting that one go. But that's just me. I love the exterior of your house in that last shot. This looks like such a wonderful "retirement" or "empty nester" place.

I know this is about lighting, but you had me at grass cloth! More on that please.

I somehow missed this post earlier and am so happy to be reading it now. Anything to see what you are doing in the new house! Love, love, love the lights you've chosen. Especially the dining room chandelier and those cute PB chandys in the MB closet and room. Great choices all the way around:)

Can NOT wait to see the whole house when you finally move in! It's just around the corner now!!
