Well, now we finally have a floor plan for the Designer House Sunroom.So I began thinking more about the lighting in the space. Lighting is such an important element in any room: not only does the light provide needed illumination, it draws your eye, causing the fixtures to become powerful sculptures, enhancing your designs.
I know that in a previous post I mentioned the ceiling fan has got to go! I’ve really been brewing about what to put there. The current fan is at eye level when approaching my space from the kitchen, and visitors will get an eyeful of whatever I put in its place.
I don’t want anything that hangs too low, since people will have to walk beneath it, but I DO want something impactful. So in keeping with the fun, edgy look I’m promoting with a mix of vintage and modern, I’ve decided to use this adorable capiz shell fixture in the center of the room.
Instead, I’ve decided to do something creative and use a vintage 1960’s chandelier suspended from a floor stand.I also have a terrific large stone lamp with a black shade which I think I’ll use on a side table in the main furniture grouping. The stone baluster will speak to the garden room theme and will fit right in with the mood. I also need to figure out a lamp to put on the desk in the corner by the door. But things are really coming along, don’t you think?
I’ll share more about my plans for the BCDH Sunroom design in future posts. Until then, feel free to visit the BCDH website here: http://www.buckscountydesignerhouse.org/
