Thank you! These are two styles I love and have considered, I like the bronze and worry that the brushed nickel I chose (below) won't be right. This is what I have on the order sheet but haven't committed yet, what do you think of these options? Also, the door will be painted (black) or changed out.

If you are worried about the Brushed Nickel finish looking right, here are a few Antique Bronze options from Progress Lighting that might be a fit. Collections are Seeded Glass, Heart, Eclipse and Indulge. You can view them at http://www.progresslighting.com.

I like the idea of the nickel, especially since you're changing the doors. What is the rest of the hardware in your house? The white/beige light would be a nice contrast from a darker door and floors. :)

I'd love to see the finished product!

And perhaps if you wanted to go a little funky... ;)

Our Seeded Glass pendant is one of our most popular fixtures!

The rest of the hardware in the house will be changed out, I had originally thought brushed for hinges and knobs. However, I can go either way. New bath fixtures are all polished chrome.

I don't like that last one - too industrial feeling. Your first choices look good - matched except for the way they're mounted. I do think a semi-flush is right for the lower ceiling and a pendant/chandy style for the higher one.

I found this one that is a little less industrial than the previous:

It's nice but a little harsh I think for your entry. I like your first choices better! :) The pendant Warner Decor listed is nice too.

Great thoughts, thank you! As far as brushed nickel vs bronze on my first choice, any thoughts? It's between my first choice and the top left from Progress lighting, please weigh in! Love hearing your ideas.
