I have loved that image for so long and it has been in the back of my mind when I went out on a new light hunt! I love the look of large drum shades and thought it looked great as a ceiling pendant. The light we had before was a mission style, stain glass pendant. It was nice, but never fit the scale of the space. (It was a rookie mistake of mine to not look at the measurements before the purchase!)
Our new light, is double in size and fits the scale of the space much better. Here it is in its new home:
This is a light fixture from Lowe’s and it is actually one of their energy efficient fixtures. I was a little weary at first, because I don’t usually like the glow from energy efficient bulbs. I am happy to say that these bulbs cast a soft, natural glow and I’m pleased with the result!
