Entry Light Ideas

(I am really enjoying the tile work in this room.)

We are nearing the end of the summer of the never-ending house projects. We are also nearing the end of the house-projects period. Hooray!

One of the last things we're figuring out is the entry light. We have one of those glass-encased brass chandelier monstrosities that needs to go, but we haven't found anything we've loved to replace it with that works with this house and our price range. We are leaning toward replacing the brass chain and cord with silver and finding a drum lamp shade or two that would cover the existing chandelier after the glass casing was removed. Making a transparent circular bottom for the shade would keep you from seeing the chandelier from below. Because it is a two-story entry we are thinking a single drum might be too plain, so whether or not to tier, how many levels, what sizes, color, etc. are on the mind.

I think we are partial to the tiered look for the entry.
It needs a little something more than just a drum.

We would have the same chandelier-inside-the-drum affect, and choosing to let that show is kind of cool.

just imagine

I think I tend to think of lights being placed above mirrors, and I like that these aren't.

And a couple of the Random Pendant because I love it.

I am pretty sure that most of the photos are from Desire to Inspire. I've neglected to stay on top of proper labeling due to rapid searches and downloading for immediate comparison rather than blogging, but decided I now want to save a lot of these rooms and ideas that have stood out to me over the last couple of months. The occasional mis- or unlabeled photo may appear as I do this. I am happy to correct this if anyone happens to stumble across something that deserves proper credit.

I almost forgot this place exists. What's with the weird comment preceeding mine.

Holly said...

It is a funky spammer comment. I'll delete it.

Considering the craziness of the last couple of months I had almost forgotten it exists! I do have a nice stack of inspiration that I want to scan in very soon though.

Hey cute Holly, I love all your ideas, they're all so inspiring! They make me want to redo my house!
Hey, if you have room, invite me to your blog!

Holly said...

Hi Laura, thanks! Sadly there isn't too much going on creatively here as of late, life has been busy. I'll send you an invite right now.

Came across your blog today. Such great photos and design inspiration.

Holly said...

Thanks! It has been neglected as of late - a cross-country move will do that to you... !

I am looking for a tiered drum pendant for an entry way! I haven't found any like what you posted. Have you found any affordable options? Can you share where?

Holly said...

I haven't looked recently, and the only things I remember were more on the unaffordable end. We started looking into purchasing two or three large drum pendants and then tiering them ourselves, but realized that we were going to be moving and selling our home before we took the project on. The pendants would have been placed over an existing chandelier in place of the glass box that was surrounding it, so we didn't have to worry about anything electrical. I remember finding a site or two that would make custom lights, but don't remember pricing.

Sorry to not be of more help - Best of luck!
