Home DecorA Brass Lantern for the Master Bath February 9, 2016 I know I said in yesterday’s vanity tutorial that I’d be sharing colors for the lights and mirrors today. But as I was writing that post, it hit me that you guys hadn’t seen the whole existing picture! It’s hard to talk about potential new changes without seeing all of the current progress. You saw a glimpse of this light in yesterday’s post. It is one of my favorite things in this developing room and I’m so excited to share it with y’all. When we first started drawing out the floor plan of this room, I knew I wanted some sort of pendant light over the tub and in between the mirrors and other lights. One this room started taking shape and it ended up with a big vaulted ceiling, we knew some sort of over-sized light would be the right choice. My husband said he wanted a lantern, where I was picturing more of a modern light to temper all of the other rustic elements. I was also picturing brass. But the more I thought about it, I felt like an over-sized lantern might be the right shape for this area and the tall ceiling. As soon as I saw this brass lantern light from Lamps Plus, I knew it was perfect. I absolutely love how it gives my husband that lantern feel, but the slightly antiqued brass finish and more modern lines really suit what I was after. We just hung it when I realized I needed to go ahead and share it with you guys, so I haven’t gotten bulbs for it yet. I’m going to go with round bulbs instead of traditional candelabra bulbs to add a little more modern flair. I think that’s my favorite thing about our statement living room chandelier. The modern bulbs mixed with the curvy traditional lines really give it interest. We did the same thing with our dining room chandelier, except we used white opaque bulbs. I love both, but I think I may go with the white in this lantern. At $388, this is on the pricier end of our light fixtures throughout the house, though that’s a really good price for the size and finish. It’s three feet tall and really turned out to be the focal point in this bathroom. With the vaulted ceiling, that height is perfect. We’ve saved a lot on other areas of this room, so dedicating a larger chunk of the budget to a light fixture that’s going to make such an impact is definitely worth it. I think my favorite thing about it is this view of it centered in the room. And now that you’ve seen this beauty, I’ll really be sharing the color options for the lights and mirrors. And come with your thinking caps on! I’ve got some choices and definitely want your opinions! This light was sponsored by Lamps Plus. I was not otherwise compensated for my post and all opinions were 100% my own.
