Lighting Help! How do I mix antique lighting with new lighting.
June 19, 2013 in Other
Hello, I'm building a row house 25w x 75 long. Really narrow, but darling with upper and lower front porches. Anyway I have two antique lights that I'm taking out of my current home. I need suggestions on what lighting finishes to put with them. The kitchen, dining and family are all together. The smaller one I have used over a table and also then as a foyer light. The larger one has previous hung over rectangular table. (wasn't sure that was correct or not) So my chooses for where to hand them is entry, over island w/ pendants? Island is 81" x 81" or over rectangular table which is 40" wide. Also the door finishes are brushed nickel so what thoughts does anyone have about mixing finishes. What would look good with these lights. The house is going to have wood floors, white cabinets with some antique stain glass in the doors and black countertops.
