Lights, Faucet, Action!

Tonight after work we went out to buy lighting for the dining room and living room.  We had intended to buy the same light as is in the kitchen - a 3-bulb for the dining room and a 5-bulb for the living room. The three rooms are open-concept so we wanted them to be relatively the same.

But we fell in love with these ones instead:

They are from the Hendrik line by Kichler. They aren't that much different than the kitchen one. And I'm sure it doesn't really matter if they are. The shape is basically the same, they're just a little bit fancier.

We then headed over to Lowe's to look at a faucet for the main floor bath. Once we painted the walls, framed in the mirror, and painted the other fixtures, we realized that it really needed an updated faucet. Since the light fixture, towel rod, and toilet paper holder are all oil rubbed bronze, we went with this one:

It is from the Sonterra line by Pfister and the colour is Tuscan Bronze.  We were wavering between this and the brushed nickel, but figured if we didn't like it we could easily take it back and switch to the other finish.

I've always thought that the light in the bathroom right now is too big for the space and wanted to switch it out for a 2 or 3-bulb light. There is a vanity light at Lowe's that I've been eyeing for a while. Since we were there and spending all of our money anyway, we picked up the light too.

The brand is Portfolio. The shades are mix and match, and I chose the clear seeded glass.

Quite the shopping-spree, wasn't it? It's a long weekend here in Canada this weekend, so you can guess what we'll be doing. I can't wait to show you it all in place!
