Arched Ceiling in LIving Room - Lighting Suggestions
October 9, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I just bought a 1929 tudor-revival home. The living room has a beautiful arched ceiling, with a smooth finish. On one end is the front door and a blank wall, on the other end are a fireplace and built-in bookshelves. Adjacent to the front door wall is a wall with a leaded-glass front window, and opposite that wall is the entrance to the dining room. We are contemplating lighting options - recessed lighting, hanging lighting, or floor lamp lighting - as there are currently no existing fixtures and no switch that controls an outlet in that room. (We'll be hiring an electrician to help.) We want to stay as true to the character of the house as possible/want to complement the arched ceiling. Any suggestions? Thanks!
