Light Fixtures...in my Kentucky Home


Something is going on...and I am so happy to see this ladder. 
I have been looking at a couple of (ugly) ceiling lights for almost two years...
just waiting until I found replacements. 


I will let the pictures do most of the talking in this post. Let me just preface by showing you the two light fixtures that were in the house when we bought it. They are fine, in that they supply light. As to reflecting my style...not so much. 
I went to the local lighting supply and found two light fixtures to replace them. Now...that only leaves me with one light to replace...but that one may take a while as I have been outvoted it seems. The great room has a ceiling fan/light combo. I do not think it is pretty. But the guys in my family say that they need the fan to stay. So...there I am on that issue.

Here is the not so pretty...


Here is the beginning of pretty in the entry.


And...here is pretty. 
A small iron fixture with crystals. 



On to the second light....and more pretty.


The parlor light is softened by a large linen shade. Also...I chose the white washed finish to blend in a little with the ceiling. It is a bit large...but I like the oversize look. I think the larger size makes the traditional style room a little more modern.

Accessories are so important. 
They are like the right jewelry and shoes for an outfit. 


The distressed white finish may seem a little rustic for my parlor, 
but the shape and shade make it more traditional. 
I think of it as updated traditional.


I like it. I really like it. 
Simple changes can have a huge impact on a room.


I even like the shadows on the ceilings.


To sum up the visit to hang my light fixtures...
one of the guys brought up the saying... 
"happy wife, happy life."
I agree.
I am so happy with the new lighting!!!

I am slowly accomplishing the items on my wish list for our new house. 
I still have a couple of more, which will happen in time. 

Thanks for visiting.
