home office help with lighting

gggirlNovember 6, 2012

We are finally making our downstairs bedroom into a home office. I am getting bids now to change the existing window

to two centered on the wall as in the desk in the picture. Right now

I am stuck on lighting for the top of the cabinets. I like restoration hardware sconce-glass barn filament but not sure. I have many other pics if I can figure out how to upload I will.



The center of the room will have a ceiling semi-flush drum shade. Does anyone have suggestions for the sconces on the cabinets and or drum fixture? i have a charcoal love seat with chrome legs. I plan to paint the walls a neutral cream color.

Also not sure about the desk top. Considering Ikea butcher block to keep costs down but then the length of the dark wood part of desk would be shorter than pic and the white bookshelf would be built up on the bottom. I think this would be ok, any opinions? thanks!

here are the plans. It also includes the closet filled with
white shaker cabinets to look like they are built-in

some of the lights I am leaning toward. I am worried that they will look too big. Does anyone know of sconces with the industrial look that run smaller than RH?

Love this for the center of the room (or any room) in white. The cheapest I can find it is $475. I m not comfortable with that when I can RH has its drum so much cheaper. Does anyone know of a close knockoff?
