Need advice on choosing a fixture for my son's room, please

This is new construction and our home is a historic Georgian style. I need a flush mount or semi-flush mount for this room that has only one window. I like the school house style, but feel that the 10 or 12 inch diameter of most of those will be too small for this room. I think at least 100 watts for this fixture is needed. I'd like to stay under $120 for this because our budget for lighting is rather low. I am looking for either oil rubbed bronze or brass finish for the fixture's metal. thanks for any ideas.

15 in in diameter---uses incandescent or CFL--3 med base 100 watt incandescent--so should have good light
tannery bronze is the color choice in bronze
not too ornate but traditional
riight at $100

thus ORB drum shade pendant is less expensive

you could trip the shade with ribbon to go with your son's room
and there is diffuser so bulbs are not exposes
