*hearing a jingle in my head*

So the house is about 95% finalised. I am very excited (and nervous at the same time!!!!!). So I’ve been shopping around for pendant shades/lighting since I dislike the ones already in the vaulted ceiling living room.

I wrote about pink shades recently and I would love to be able to splash $3500 on lighting in the form of my favourites, the Star from Antonangeli.

But since the rich phase has not hit me yet, and I desperately wanted to replace the wrought iron things with something else, Ikea’s white Knappa will do fine at a FRACTION of $3500. Got 2 for $40 each! Yay for Ikea!

Made a little moodboard for the living room (yes, already!).

This is what I see in my head: (Chocolate brown for room paint!)
