Guest Picks: 20 Good-Looking Ceiling-Mount Lights
Unless your home is blessed with 9-foot (or higher) ceilings, you’ve probably run into the issue of finding ceiling lights. Chandeliers are gorgeous, but if your ceilings don’t provide enough clearance, you are stuck with having to purchase a flush or semi-flush mount. And the choices there can be less than desirable — or at least that used to be the case. More and more I am seeing some great options for lights that your husband won’t bump his noggin on, and all with the same design and flair you would get with a lower-hanging fixture. Here are some of my favorites, several of which I’ve used in recent projects when I’ve run into this issue myself. Enjoy! — Daniela from Aesthetic Oiseau

Although this light would certainly be at home in a rustic cabin, I think it would work great as a cheeky accent in a boho room with Southwestern-inspired accents.
