Oh snap. I’m officially obsessed with this light.
So as you may have guessed, my bedroom has a new light. (I probably should stop calling it my bedroom since it is actually my closet. Potayto Potahto.) Anyway, isn’t this light the coolest?
I assume you’ve seen this particular fixture floating around the Internet for the past year or so. It’s the Mobile Chandelier from West Elm. I hate that it’s become uber popular, but that isn’t stopping me from loving it oh so much. Plus, I think it’s totally perfect for the space.
Fun fact: I actually bought this chandelier well over a year ago when I first dreamed up this space. It’s been sitting in the box ever sense. Well, now it’s out, proud and shinning it’s little light on the world. (I may or may not have another chandelier in a box in my attic for my other guest room. It’s a problem.)
As you can imagine, with six big bulbs, there’s a lot of light. To adjust the light, I installed a dimmer switch. Something I’ve done for every overhead light in my home.
Picking out overhead lights and chandeliers is probably one of my favorite things. I think overhead lights can really make or break a room. And, based on your comments here on the blog, light fixtures are one of the first things people notice, whether it be the Edison chandler in my entryway, the fixture over my dining room table, or the gold disco-ball-inspired light in my guest room.
While this particular fixture isn’t too expensive, I don’t mind paying a little extra for a really fabulous light.
And that, friends, wraps up my bedroom progress for this week. Next week I’m hoping to start on the actual bed-room, install the closet system, and pick out some curtains and linens. I can’t wait until the work is done, and I can start decorating.
Let me know if you are digging my new light as much as I am. Also, what’s one of your favorite lighting fixtures?
