Renovation update #28
Every single light fixture needed to be replaced in my new house. When I first arrived at The Lighting Warehouse in Richmond I had the good fortune to work with Anne (one of the owners). She was fabulous.
I had spent a bunch of time on-line already selecting everything and then when I was ordering, there were some lights where I had not found exactly what I was picturing in my head or it was way over my budget. Anne walked me through my order, helped me re-select either from their extremely well-stocked showroom or through a catalogue.
When we discussed the flush mount that I wanted for the entry, I told her I wanted it in black–remember a while back I was telling you how the lighting manufacturers have still not transferred over from oil-rubbed bronze–anyway, she just looked at me and said:
‘Maria, just blink twice really fast and it’ll be black‘. And she was right.
It finally arrived, because it was on back-order and it’s perfect. If I had worked with Anne last year when I ordered my lantern chandelier for my last house, it would have been the right size, haha.
By the way, the trend update on lighting is that Chrome is huge! Anne said that’s all everyone seems to be buying these days! It’s exactly what I did in my new kitchen for everything, faucets, pulls, lights. . . countertop reveal coming soon!
Here is the before
