Replacing Our Formal Entry Ceiling Light

A few weeks ago, I painted the ceiling in our formal entry and then over the weekend we installed a new ceiling light fixture. The light that was here was not original to the house; it was an inexpensive eyesore of a light fixture that was seriously losing its luster.  We thought a more formal Tiffany-style light would go well in this space and would complement other light fixtures throughout the house.

With the wood of our knotty pine walls, isn't the green ceiling light reminiscent of tree leaves? This room makes me feel like we live in a forest.

The last step to finish off this room will be to find a different area rug for placing in front of the door.  Perhaps something with green to go with the light?

Knotty pine walls e-book

In the book, which you can download and view now, you'll discover how we stumbled upon our unique home. The house was once part of a dairy farm, but it had fallen into disrepair over the years.  Despite the sad state of the house, the solid planks of knotty pine throughout were still in great shape. Included are photos of the renovation plus many more photos of each of the eight rooms decorated. Click to see the book on Amazon.

We invite you to download your copy of the book, which follows our journey as we share what we learned while renovating and decorating a house with its vintage knotty pine walls. See photos of our rooms from start to finish and throughout the seasons.
