Lighting for 2 story foyer
March 11, 2014 in Design Dilemma
I am replacing the chandelier in our foyer. It is a large 16 light fixture that I am replacing with a smaller, lighter orb fixture. Is there a rule for the size that I should follow? The new one's dimensions are 35"H X 29" Diameter. By itself it looks plenty big to me, but in comparison to the old fixture, which is huge, seems really small. You can get an idea of the area/height in the first picture. Foyer hall is flanked by the formal living room on one side and an office on the other side, and leads into the kitchen. Thanks!
