stILe finds: Lighting

Our bathroom renovation started on Monday and it now looks like this:

Who wants to call first dibs on the shower now? Be my guest.

The picture looks as old as the tile but believe me when I tell you it was taken this morning.

Here’s what our bathroom used to look like:

Goodbye minty green tile. I’m sure you were way cool in your heyday.

If all goes according to plan, I should be able to share After pictures in about four weeks.  While we patiently wait for the hot mess to be completed, I’ll share some pendant options I’m thinking about using in the space.  The bathroom isn’t huge so I don’t want to pick something that completely overpowers the room.  The tile going in is white and the paint color will be soothing, so I also want the light fixture to be the key piece that makes people go, “ooooh, ahhhhh.”

I can already picture this one from here centered right dab in the middle of the bathroom.

Ooh, I can picture this one too. So dainty, antique looking and utterly refined. But best of all, inexpensive.

The simplicity of this West Elm one also draws in my attention.

Chandelier without all the drama. I like.

That’s it, I think I’m going with this one.

Perfect for when I want people to say, “What The F*ck”, and completely discredit any stile people may have thought I had.

This one from Urban Electro is waaaay more than I’m willing to spend, but in an ideal world I’d have it installed as soon as all the other rubbish was out the door.

Ugh, I can’t afford this one either. Why am I torturing myself by searching for lighting I can’t buy, you ask? I don’t know, I kinda like it.

I can’t decide. Help! What do you think? Which one would you pick? If your choice is the butterfly one, you need not comment and perhaps you shouldn’t be reading this blog. : )

Until Tomorrow,

    Either the turquoise one or the top one with silver chain.

    If it were my own space, I would probably go with the one from West Elm. But I absolutely love the turquoise one from Urban Electro!

  3. Gisel

    I personally like the second and third picture. Good luck. I’m sure you will make the right choice.

    I like the first one. You know I have a tough time with anything “too bold” so I like the modern/simple look of the first one. Can’t wait to see the finished product!

    as sad as i am to see the minty green tiles go *tear,tear*. the one from west elm is my fave

  6. Hey there! Thanks for the comment. Love your blog. I’d go with the West Elm fixture. Simple and beautiful!

    Hmmm. I feel that any one of these light fixtures could throw you into so many different directions away from eachother. So, knowing you and how much you love color, I would choose the Urban Electro too for a pop.

    I love the simple quality of the west elm fixture. The Overstock gold number is nice as well and would look lovely in a clean, spare, modern space. All that said, you are killing me with the 1st dibs stunner. That one practically knocked me out. Holy cow it is fabulous!!!

    I LOVE the last one, the gold one. Everything gold is good with me, but I really do especially love this one! It’s gorgeous.
