bedroom lighting plan help
I'm going to have to determine where to put the box for ceiling light soon. I thought I had it figured out that I would put a ceiling fan in the center of the ceiling. But then I found a lovely little milk glass chandelier and I am changing my mind.
For one thing, with two tall windows and a door that can be opened I don't really think I'll need a ceiling fan for cooling the space (and my cat Elliot hates fans and she probably wouldn't even enter the room if it were on).
I have a reading light that hangs on the headboard for reading. I'd have lights in the closet and a table lamp on a dresser for task lighting.
so this little chandelier is only 12 by 14 inches. Is the scale too small for a 10 by 12 foot room? What do you think of hanging it near the wall above the head of the bed, rather than the center of the room, which would put it nearer the foot of the bed? The ceiling vault is going to be 9 1/2 to 10 feet. I would like to put up planks for the ceiling and give it a light blue paintwashed effect.
I'm going to upholster the head board, and can cover the reading lamp in a shade made of the same or similar material, so it will be nicely camoflagued.
Perhaps this chandelier is too ornate for the look I want, but it's got me thinking about where to put the electrical service.
There isn't space to lay out the furniture any other way, so putting the light fixture off center won't cut off potential layout changes.
my bed is similar to the one in the link below, not as tall, less square. I'll give it the same paint treatment, but the upholstery will be lighter in color.
What are your thoughts on the chandelier... too ornate? just right?
I really like the light, but I am struggling between wanting spare and serene and indulging in a bit of feminine frill.
