We are getting close! The electrician has been in, so not long before we can actually paint a room! It is with a sad face though, that I report the demise of most of my beautiful glittering chandeliers. With lower ceilings and no stairwell as of yet, there is no way we can rehang the majority of the ceiling fittings we had in the apartment, but that means some happy finds for some folk soon on gumtree! So, on to pastures greener, more budget friendly and fun. I hope to make some of the lights myself, but my first stop is high street shop Homebase – before I get to our problem room, above are some lovely pieces I found for the rest of the house. 1 – Habitat Helena 6 Flower Garland Light – in Silver, 2 – Habitat Concetta Patterned Table Lamp Base, 3 – Habitat Tse Tse – Cherry Blossom LED Light, 4 – Premier Glass Table Lamp, 5 Habitat Perle – Elegant Pendant, 6 – Habitat Kura – Origami Paper Drum Shade.Now the room that can be a pain. We always have a hard time choosing bathroom lighting, in the apartment we had a flush chandelier that was a real sparkler, and we could have a pretty main light in the new bathroom too, but what to have elsewhere? I have been collecting inspiration over here and love mixing different styles, now I am thinking outside wall lights could be a good option, as they would look more rustic/industrial and of course will be waterproof, and then maybe a few bathroom spotlights tucked away discretely in the ceiling.
Here’s what I found so far. 1 – Living Milano 4 Light Bar Spotlight, 2 – Single Fire Rated Shower Downlight – Chrome, 3 – Rosie 5 Arm Ceiling Light, 4 – Habitat Garland – Acid Etched Sheet Gold, 5 – Fisherman’s Lantern, 6 – Dives Wall Light Rusty Brown. I really love the rusty Dives wall light as it looks quite nautical but not too themed and I think it will give a soft light when the spots are turned off. Only six more rooms to figure out now!
