Some people love cushions and candles, I love lighting. I am a firm believer that lighting can make or a break a room. Too much and it looks harsh and cold, too little and you’ll be feeling your way around the walls to get from one side to another. We have recently added new ceiling lights in the kitchen hall and the playroom.
When we moved into our house with a new baby due imminently we couldn’t afford to splash out too much on ceiling lights so we concentrated on adding mood lighting with lamps strategically placed in rooms. Fast forward 7 years and we have slowly but surely started to replace the ceiling lights through the house for a more modern feel. Our two most recent ceiling light additions came from First Choice Lighting and I love them but making a choice wasn’t easy as there was so much to choose from so I’m indulging myself by sharing some of my favourites with you.
Black with Antique Brass 60w E27 Pendant
There is something about the vintage design lights which really appeal to me. Sadly we didn’t go down a ‘vintage’ route when decorating our house so I don’t feel these would work for us but if we were to change our styles then I would love to add pieces like this one. The antique brass and black top add the style whilst the white underside will help to flood the room with light.

I first saw ceiling lights similar to this when I was treated to a hair makeover at a trendy London salon and I have been loving them ever since.

This sleek antique brass and clear glass pendant glass cover is the ideal way to enhance the lighting and the appearance of the room, with minimal effort.

Copper is big news in homeware so this Copper Wire Pendant is bang on trend. As much as I love all the Copper, we haven’t got any in our house as we felt there was too much to change but it doesn’t stop me coveting it.
