fireplace lighting

beezbabySeptember 8, 2005

My GC left no area to put lighting onto my downstairs fireplace. The heating (mechanicals) are above the area so I need to come up with some other form of lights to shine onto the fireplace. Any thoughts or great lighting sites?

Maybe recessed pocket lights in the ceiling above and a dimmer switch controler ... you may want to look at the lighting fixtures at your local Home Depot or Lowes for other ideas.

Here is a link to a picture of Andy Garcia's living room in Miami. He has a fireplace with 2 monkey sconces on either side:
