I've just returned from the H-K House and things are progressing
nicely! The painters are almost done!
I will restrain from posting pictures until things are a little
better in order. Lots of befores and afters to come! Still on the
hunt for many things. I am still trying to decide if I want to put ceiling fans
in the bedrooms or just a ceiling mount light or pendant. This is a dilemma when dealing
with a historical project that will be lived in by a modern family. Form versus
function? When the house was built in 1814, there were no ceiling lights, only candle light
So any choice I make will be a modern update. What do you vote?
Here are some options I found that could work.
The ceilings are 9 ft and the rooms are fairly large so options abound.
First we have this little guy, is is a little streamline but i think would
be clean lined and work in the room....
or I also like this option which would be more in keeping with the house....
so what do I do? Go with form or function? What's your vote? These
are representative of the type things I am pondering. When I make my decision
I will share with you. Do you have a suggestion?
