Friday 5


Happy Friday ya'll! I hope everyone has a great weekend planned. My weekend highlights? Hair appointment and bridal shower and then a whole lot of relaxing/home reno (can you relax with home reno in the same sentence?) Today I'm linking up with April for Friday 5 and Amanda for Friday Fav's and I'm in need of everyone's opinion!

We have been searching for a new foyer/entry-way light fixture and can't quite decide on one. We've narrowed it down to about 10 (which isn't really narrowing it down at all) but I want to share some of the chosen few for my 5 things today. Now remember, something new and modern wouldn't really fit this 1850's home so we haven't looked at many new-age chandeliers, etc. but it is the main source of light for the hallway. The first pic is of the poor 1990's looking light that's in there now so you can get an idea of the space. Thanks for your help and have a great weekend!


Pics taken right when we closed so don't mind the mess! haha But that poor light must go ya'll....













Same fixture but different variations:




























WILCARDS that border modern but I sort of like anyway:

  1. My professional opinion as a Lighting Specialist (I really am one!) is number 2. It has 3 bulbs so that will be 180 watts of light and the style compliments your interior. Plus it looks like you can adjust the height pretty easily. I love all the choices but I think number 2 is my fav for your space! I like number 4 but I worry that might hang down too low! xoxo

  2. Ohhh I love that last one, even if it is a little more modern. I think that would look so good hanging up in your foyer!

  8. Hey girl, happy Friday! Before I even saw your favorites I was thinking of a lantern style with glass panes. I really like #1 and #6 but I think that out of these options the 3rd one would go with the style of the home best. They are all beautiful choices and I know it's going to look great no matter what you choose! xo

  15. ooo, I like 3 or 5! Your entry way is gorgeous! So large & grand! Simply stunning!

  16. I'm glad you posted the second picture because from the first one, it looked like the light was in a weird/not centered place. In the second one, you can definitely tell that it is at least center!

    I like 1 and 3 best!

  28. I love the last one. I think it is gorgeous. I love when I see older homes with chandeliers like that. So chic.

  29. I love number two and the last image (my favorite). Cute space! Have you done a home tour? I'll have to scavenger for one! I can't wait to see the rest of your home :)

  30. I like number 3 and the 1st wildcard. I feel like the ones covered with glass will dim the lighting a bit and I love a bright home :)
