one room challenge... week 4


I'm keeping it short and sweet for you!
Because, if you've been following along with all twenty bloggers each Wednesday I know
you're excited to check out this week's progress, and it takes a bit of time to get through all of them,
and I have a cold and want to go to bed.  :)

Let there be light...

Home Depot Hampton Bay Swing Arm Wall Sconce $49.97



You've probably guessed I'm a fan of mixing metals, I think it will work well with cool gray and
 warm tan in the fabric I've chosen. That shade to the left needs to go back it has a blip on the
 top edge. These shades may get some trim?? Thoughts?



Urban Outfitters Triple Tiered Pendant Shade $64.00 
I wanted to include something with a modern edge.



I thought it was looking a little plain.
 I had some of this left from my hutch makeover, and I have a plan. :)


Coming back down...one step forward, two back!


Next week the finished window treatment, and tiered shade.

If you'd like to catch up with past weeks

Thanks so much for following along, everyone! 
Head over and visit my friends' progress this week.

I've always loved that pendant shade! Is it as great in person? I can't wait to see what you do with it. Hope you feel better soon, friend.

Looking very good ... I am a little sleepy this morning and I thought you had a green trimmed sink. I was a FAN!! Then I realized it was painters tape!! Well ... if you ever decide to paint it I will cheer you on!! xo

I love mixing metals. Before long, silver will be all the rage, again. I am really curious to see what you do to the pendant. Hope your cold is over soon.

Love it! I cannot believe the price of those sconces!

I couldn't wait to come visit today and see your bathroom progress! Totally loving your choice of light fixtures…the fact that you mixed the metals, and their shapes…..you help me to see things in a different way….wishing I could go shopping with you every time I read one of your posts! The bathroom looks great so far; looking forward to seeing your roman shade and what you do with that ceiling mounted light!

For so long it was a no no to mix metals and now I see it more and more and it's slowly growing on me.. and I'm glad to see you went for it!

I too love the UO light fixture and you can't beat the price right?
Feel better:)

Jennifer Bridgman said...

Love how it's coming together. Now off to bed! Feel better :)

Ooh yes, trim would be fabulous, it made me think of this fabulous pin, http://pinterest.com/pin/267330927850775689/
I love the new thought for the light fixture as well. It's coming together beautifully Pam!

I'm excited to see you transform that Urban Outfitters light. Looking good!!

Jennifer @ Dimples and Tangles said...

Ooooh, I like where you're going with the ceiling light! Love those sconces, thanks for the heads up. I'd like to add some in my bedroom when we get around to it. I think a pretty greek key ribbon trim would look great!

Beth Connolly said...

Love the lighting choices. Urban has some great stuff - wish they showed more of the home things in their stores.

Cathy Wall said...

What a deal on the lighting! Love the mixed metals and can't wait to see the magic you impart on the pendant....

Shauna@Satori Design for Living said...

Looking fantastic! I bet that light fixture gives off an amazing cast with the perforations. I think a little dark colored trim on those sconces would be amazing. Get better!

Elizabeth @ The Little Black Door said...

Love where your plan is going ;) And I have those same sconces and love them. Mixing metals is a fab plan!

Kelly @ A Swell Place to Dwell said...

Love that ceiling fixture, but it is totally going to look better with the left over stuff from your hutch...smart!

Taylor Greenwalt said...

Pam..its looking great and love the new lighting...great price!

I love to mix the metals!!! If there was a no no rule, I broke it years ago!
Love the ceiling fixture (chandelier at it's best)!!!!!

cindy @ a curious gardener said...

So sorry to hear you now have a cold, Pam! Grapefruit juice, Hall's menthol lyptus, chicken soup and hot tea for you! And a daily nap of course!

Love mixing metals and lighting styles, good job getting the up high shots of the ceiling fixture!

Mary Ann at classic•casual•home said...

What a great deal on the sconces. I like mixing metals, too. It's looking so sophisticated and fresh.

Crissy @ House of Marlowe said...

As I knew..... it's shaping up to be a stunner. Love the mix of metals and the treatment to the ceiling fixture. I say yes to the trim on the shades.

Nicole Scott said...

I don't want to gush but I really love your direction. Heading over to UO to see about that three tiered piece. Very clever to add a little something extra. Love!

Kim@Chattafabulous said...

Pam, that ceiling fixture! So pretty! I got one of 2 of mine put up and now I've decided to do a little makeover on it. The husband will not want to hear this news.

Boy....just painting the walls and the vanity made such a difference! I also think that light fixture added a nice touch of whimsey to the room. Love the choice of the swing arm lamps.

I like mixing metals, too. Everything is looking so great! The light fixture is already fantastic -- can't wait to see what you do!
