If you’ve been following along for a little while with our renovation saga, you’re familiar with some of the lighting that we started with in the basement: ceiling fixtures mounted on the walls, a ceiling fan recessed up into the joists. As you can probably imagine, I have a bit of a need for new lighting.
With the Barn Light Electric giveaway making the rounds of the blogosphere, I saw an opportunity.
Once I was browsing the web site, however, I was seduced. I was sidetracked. I decided I can live with bare bulbs and pigtails in the basement.
But I absolutely positively cannot any longer live with this.
Wouldn’t this be a fun replacement?
We have a beautiful big living room with lots of natural light, wonderful vaulted ceiling, great rustic beams and a stone fireplace (that admittedly could use a bit of work). In the middle of all that, we have a huge, horrific green ceiling fan.
Barn Lighting has tonnes of great options that will satisfy my need for a pretty, polished, traditional aesthetic that’s in keeping with our rustic country setting. We have an actual barn on this property. We should choose a company with “barn” in its name.
Once I was focused on the main floor, it was easy to line up other lighting options.
While I need the Outer Banks Chandelier for the living room, I just want the Halstead Semi-Flush Ceiling Light. I’d put it in my sewing room to replace yet another boob light.
Halstead is not really country and it’s definitely not rustic, but oh it’s pretty.
