Are these outdoor lanterns too big for my front entry?
We're remodeling the exterior of our house right now (new siding, front door and door surround). I purchased two Hinkley "Cape Cod" extra large onion lamps in sienna bronze (model 2205SZ) They're 26" tall (including the tall hook) and 14" wide. Our door is a standard 3'x6'8" tall. I mocked them up in Google Sketchup to see how they'd look:

(The shadows from the lamps are a little odd looking - please ignore)
Do you think these are too big? I know that people tend to undersize their front lanterns, but I'm afraid these are truly oversized and overpower the entrance. I'm considering putting them on New Hampshire's craigslist.
Thanks for any advice ...
