A bit of philosophy mixed with a bit of ceiling light shopping, and I want to share both with you.
We would like to think that we are at the age of enlightenment, in our life and in our homes. The age of reason or enlightenment was a 17th and 18th century cultural movement, and its wish was to reform society, bring knowledge through science and oppose abuse and intolerance, therefore enlightenment equals light
Now Shopping time
This is my very favorite, the Moravian Star $149.99, in lighting, I found the best deals at Home Depot, and we certainly can get the look for a less expensive price.http://www.homedepot.ca/product/moravian-star-collection-1-light-pendant/979654 This star has a beautiful history, if you want to know more about it you can visit my Pinterest site at http://pinterest.com/shermurphy/moravian-stars/
Dining with a Moravian Star over you.
When you choose a pendant light for your hallway, make sure to look under it, so that it does not show the bulb like this fixture below.
This is a lovely fixture for a small dining room or a kitchen light.
A real cute bird-cage for 178.00, if you check other store similar look are priced at $2395.00, of course the quality is different, but if you want to go for the look it does work.
I am splurging a bit with this stellar light fixture, but I know this one well and it really creates a magical ambiance.
A client of mine bought the stellar light, and she absolutely loves it.
This light would look terrific above a kitchen table or in a small dining area.
You could also use this light above a rectangular kitchen or dining table, I would suggest you put it on a dimmer. I would install dimmers everywhere, we look so much better when the light is dimmed, most of all if we are women of a certain age.
You can get two or three identical illuma-flex, they would look very good above an island, or just one over a kitchen table.
For a Scandinavian look I would definitely favor this Eglo tosca fixture, looks best over a rectangular table.
For a modern 70s look this white light fixture has a nice texture.
I can get overly excited when I find stuff I really like, it took a while but it was worth the effort, I could have spent a lot more time on this site, but it is your turn now, you can go and do your homework, some of these you can only buy online, Just make sure you look at the info.
Back to Philosophy
Socrates knew that without light there was no color, so if you want a technicolor life make sure you get the right light for your home.
Have a great Easter long week-end, enjoy.
