So, I placed the lighting order, today.
We are now estimated to reach a total of 5% over budget. (We were at 2% before I started making aesthetic choices.) Still, low enough that we're going to swallow it. You only build a dream house once, right?
So, most of the lighting is simple half-moon sconces, But I am very excited about the lights for the entry way. There are 4 sconces in the foyer, two on each wall. I found a pair (left/right) sconces that I think do a nice job of repeating the flow theme from the tiles. They also emphasize the inside/outside balance I've got going. What do you think?
And, if that's not cool enough for you, there are these larger sconces in a similar theme
. These will flank the entryway from the living room side.
Things are progressing.
I am happy.
I am broke.
