Selecting and placing the appropriate light fixtures in a space is one of my favorite things to design. Lighting plays such a crucial role on how a room looks and feels, and how we experience a space. There are so many factors go into designing lighting layouts and selecting the right fixtures other than just budget and style. The right wattage (light output); quality of light (LED vs halogen vs fluorescent) dimensions; and installation methods all need to be considered.
I was able to design the lighting with a blank slate for the house. I had only three prerequisites in place: the metal finish on all the fixtures shall be Oil Rubbed Bronze for a consistent finish; absolutely no fluorescent bulbs; and all fixtures shall work with the rustic/farmhouse aesthetic while providing an eclectic selection.
Below are images of selections and brief description on design intent.
