Turmoil Continues

18 Nov

I am just really not adventurous. I have looked at so many lights for the dining room, and I can’t find anything. I looked at this awesome post on design sponge, searched Decor 8, and drooled over decorology, but I am at a loss.

I love the adventurous ones like this, but I am too scared for that:

Way too bold

Something classic is great, but our apartment has a pretty relaxed style:

But too fancy?

Or more casual:

will this get dirty?

the original idea:

too dark?

Of course the Restoration Hardware pieces are also $$$$ mad pricey. Anyway, just letting you know the turmoil continues…let me know your thoughts.

    i know this is really not too fancy or chic, but when shopping for ceiling fans at home depot the other day, i was stuck by how….nice….some of their light fixture were. i just looked up there website and selected the “pendants” section for you, but their chandeliers have some good choices too

    Totally agree about Home Depot … that’s where I plan to get sconces for our bedroom. This one looks like it would be a nice option (though I have very traditional taste):

    You might not want to spend a lot right on a chandelier now anyways b/c who knows how long you’ll be in your current place and maybe your next home will have different character than your condo. Just a thought. Check out the Lowe’s website too, they have nice lighting options.

    […] the way, we did finally buy a light fixture for over the dining room table. You may remember the days of debate. The light we chose was installed on Thursday, but now we need the ceiling repaired! I will post […]
