When choosing a light fixture for my guest room, I could claim that I wanted something shapely and interesting. Something that could stand alone, yet also blend with other styles and pieces of the room. But honestly I just chose a light that I liked the best. I actually chose the light first and then chose the room to put it in. At some point I may move it to the living room or 3rd floor lounge. That’s the joy of a plug-in fixture. High style and low commitment.
I chose the Aurene Teardrop Art Glass Shade by Rejuvenation. Not knowing the exact color the gold sheen glass would be, I opted for contrast and paired it with an oil-rubbed bronze socket and black cord. In the future I might choose a white cord. Honestly, you don’t see much of the cord though, because I tucked it inside a cord chase that I painted the same color as the wall. (You can spy it in the corner of the room.)
Here is your up-close-and-personal detail of the shade. I love how it plays off the gold theme I have in the room but also has its own little story going on.
When lit, it really cozies up this corner. You can see here that I hung the light from a hook in the ceiling and plugged it in by my console table. So convenient.
The view from the entry makes me happy now.
I wanted the guest room to feel collected, warm and a little eclectic.
The small frame of the shade allowed me to also hang art without worrying about visual overload.
So that’s what I did with my Baltimore Custom Light fixture. What would you do? Here’s your chance…
