|Hello all! I'm replacing all the lighting in my house and need some advice. I have ordered this light for my dining room: |
I'm considering something like this for over my breakfast table:

My floorplan is very open and both of these fixtures will be very easily seen at the same time while in the family room. Do they need to match? Will completely different styles look terrible together? I'd love some advice asap as the electrician is coming soon to take down all the old lights. Thanks!
|I think they go well together. In fact, when you asked "Will completely different styles look terrible together?" I was expecing the two fixtures to be much, much more dofferent. I personally would consider them both to be "modern" or "updated" takes on fairly traditional lighting oprions (drum shade and chandelier). Both are very pretty!|
|Thank you Madtown! Now, another question. What about light fixtures that are in the same room? I will be putting a new light above the table in the breakfast area, a light above the island in the kitchen, and then either 2 or 3 pendants at the bar. Since these 3 areas are basically in the same room should I use the same style of light fixture, or will it look ok to choose different styles that I like? They would all be a brushed nickel and modern style. Thoughts?|
|Does anyone else have any thoughts on this? I need to get my lights ordered and I don't trust my decisions. I'm second guessing everything. :(|
