Tuesday Talk: Lighting for the New House Update!

Tuesday, April 25, 2017

Hi friends!! Happy Tuesday!!!

I hope your week is off to a great start!!
We have had sunny, beautiful weather the last few days here in Indiana and it is making me SO happy!! 

So- a couple weeks ago I shared with you some lighting options that Aaron and I were considering for our new house.  You can read it by going HERE!

Well...since I know all of you have been hanging on the edge of your seats waiting to see what we picked out- I thought I would share it with you today ;)

For the eat-in portion of our kitchen- 
We've decided to go with this ceiling fan!
Isn't it SO cool?!? It's from Home Depot!! I don't know how I came across it- but I was SO excited when I did. Aaron loves just as much as I do- so I consider that a major win!
For over the kitchen sink, we decided to just go with a super simple single pendant light. We found this one on Wayfair- but actually last night- Aaron found one almost identical to this light on Home Depot's website- so I think we will get that one instead! On both Home Depot's website and Wayfair's website this light is on sale for under $30- so we are SUPER excited about that!!
 Next up- is the lighting fixture for over our kitchen island!!
We are getting this fixture from the lighting company. This is a definitely "splurge" - but we are bringing a couple of our own ceiling fans to our new house- so we are getting credits for those and it is all working out just fine :)
Don't you just LOVE it??? Or is that just me?
What do you think about it coordinating with the ceiling fan and single pendant light? 
Obviously they aren't going to match EXACTLY- but I feel like they will coordinate really well together!

Here's the chandelier we chose for our dining room!
This is also from Home Depot!
We were seriously getting so frustrated that we couldn't find anything that we liked for the dining room and then we took a little to Home Depot this past Saturday to look at paint colors and decided to check out their lighting department. And I saw this chandelier and was like, "YES! This is IT!" 
I love that it is a mixture of rustic, slightly modern, a mix of metal and wood and that the lights are very simple. I didn't want Edison lightbulbs or regular lightbulbs that were visible in our dining room chandelier. 
Also- I love that the rectangle shapes in the chandelier coordinate with the rectangle detail in the chair rail that is in the dining room! 
And finally- here's the lighting fixture we picked out for the foyer/entrance area when you walk in through the front door! This fixture is from Wayfair!
It's kind of hard to tell- but the fixture is oil-rubbed bronze and I think it coordinates really nicely with everything else we picked out! I love that it's simple but classy at the same time. I don't think it will overpower the foyer at all- but will definitely add some "interest!"

And there you have it!!! We are really excited with what we have picked and Aaron just wants to get everything ordered ASAP so I don't change my mind. HA! Lighting has been a hot topic lately and the poor guy is ready for me to stop saying, "I don't know! What do you think?!?!" HA!

So- the next step for us will be figuring out if we can order the fixtures from Wayfair and Home Depot and have them sent to the lighting company that will be installing all of our other lighting. We would REEALLLLYYY like it if they could install everything all at one time versus Aaron having to install the fixtures we are buying on our own. 
We're keeping our fingers crossed that works out! :)

And just for fun- I thought I would share the latest picture of the exterior of our house!!
This is taken from the road that runs parallel to our house- so it's not the greatest quality- but you can see the stonework, the shutters and the siding are all done!!
It's starting to feel REAL! This is our house! 
I still can't really believe it :)
Hope you have the BEST day!!

  1. LOVE all your lighting! Just beautiful! I can't wait to see a full house tour when y'all get all settled in!!

  2. Wow, I love all your lighting choices! That's so cool you were able to find the same styles for your kitchen areas. I also love that you have a little of a rustic feel without being super trendy. Great choices and your house is really coming along!! Have a terrific Tuesday!

  3. Eek! I love all of the light fixtures! You are inspiring me to find one for our dining room...

  4. Love your light choices especially that ceiling fan! Can't wait till you move in and we can see the finished product.

  5. Your home is looking gorgeous!! I love the blue with the stone. Your lighting choices are perfect!! They look really unique, classy and I think you'll be happy with them for a long time! Great choices. I really hope you can ship them to your lighting company to install -- that would be wonderful! Crossing my fingers for you :)

  6. The lights are all awesome!!! Great finds!

  7. Oh my friend, I loooooooooooooooooooooove all of your choices! I think all of the options that you chose for the kitchen & eat in area coordinate together really nicely. I can't believe how quickly things are coming together!

  8. I love all of you new fixtures! Can't wait to see it all put together!

  9. I love love love fun light fixtures!

  10. The one thing I love about that ceiling fan is the distressed wood for the fan blades. This really does have the look of an old ship, especially with the lighting that comes with it. The design also has a lot of interesting details. I think I might just want one for myself.


I love hearing from you! Let's keep it nice though...ain't nobody got time for anything else!
