Since moving into our new house, I have slowly been making small changes to reflect my style. The latest change was updating the chandelier in the foyer along with the light over the staircase. Both were original to the home and they were ready to move to greener pastures. I spent a lot of time researching and pinning different lights that fit my style. So far all of the detail fixtures (door knobs, cabinet pulls and switch plates) have a satin nickel finish but ultimately I opted to choose a oil rubbed bronze finish for the lights. I picked this finish specifically because my walls are a lighter khaki color (scheduled to change in the future!) and I felt that the bronze finish would make the fixture pop.

I love how it all turned out! I enjoy how such a small change can make such a large difference with the space. Though I was nervous with choosing the bronze finish, I can confidently say I have no regrets! Now I am inspired to tackle more lighting projects – look out for those in the future. 🙂
