Little Brick Cottage…Come See the New Light Fixtures

All the ceilings at the little brick cottage have been painted and all the new light fixtures have been hung. Most of the lighting I bought at Home Depot, but a couple I bought at Menards. In keeping with the farmhouse style and age of the house, I tried to find lighting on a budget that fit. Let me show you what I got:

I’ll start the lighting tour with one of my favorites!  I love the sculptural-ness (ha, is that even close to a word?) of this chandelier I got for the dining room. The shades are metal and the ORB finish is a wonderful contrast to the light colors of the wood and walls.  Here’s a tip, the ideal height of a dining table fixture is for it to be 30-36 inches from the table top.

Here’s the living room light. I purposely didn’t want it to compete with the dining room, but just be available lighting that coordinated.

Moving to the kitchen, here is the fixture hanging over the sink. Cute, simple farmhouse style, and will coordinate nicely with the fixtures I have planned for over the peninsula…they’re not done yet, soon.

This isn’t much to look at, but I love the versatility of track lighting, especially in a kitchen. I love that you can add more fixtures as needed, and point them directly where you want more light.

This is the cute little fixture in the back entry. It’s centered on the new wall we installed that separates the back entry/kitchen from the basement and houses the new basement door.

This cute wall fixture looks and works great in the vanity nook area. There is also a ceiling light with the exhaust fan in the main part of the bathroom for additional lighting.

This fixture in the front entry is my other favorite. The simplicity of school house style just suits this little room with its beadboard walls and wide oak plank floor.

I started with one of my favorites, so I’ll end with the other one.

As always, please feel free to share this blog with your friends, as well as on Facebook and Pinterest the more the merrier!

I appreciate you stopping by.

    I am in LOVE with the dining chandelier and have searched Home Depot’s website. Would you mind sharing the brand and name?

    Although I really liked all the fixtures my favorite is one by back entry. For some reason that kind of light really appeals to me. Don’t know if I’ve ever seen chandelier for d/r with metal shades. You’re sure getting there quickly. When do you move in? I envy you very much.

    In love with all of them….but the DR light is absolutely to die for! I also love the “sculpturalness”…. ha! But yeah, the way the arms (?) come down into those low swoops, sets it above the way that wrought iron lighting usually looks, kwim? VERY nice find!!

    Would you be willing to share where you found that beauty? Pretty please!! ~LOL~
