When building my Waterford house, I learned quite a bit about light fixtures. I had to buy one for each and every room of the house. I spent hours upon hours searching for just the right fixture for each room. My favourite of all were the 3 mercury glass pendants in my Kitchen. I ordered then from West Elm.

Actually wait, it’s a tie between the mercury glass fixtures and the Thomasville Sphere fixtures in my dining room and entrance…

Anyway, I have a new appreciation for lighting. Especially hanging lights. I LOVE shopping for light fixtures and believe that a new light fixture can truly transform a space.
A new trend (actually it’s an old trend, just updated) is having pendant lights as your bedside lighting – rather than a lamp. This is a great space-saving idea, and can make for a dramatic statement in a bedroom.

And here are some of my favourite pendants. All from Candelabra Lighting & Home Decor. LOVE this website. I don’t even think they ship to Canada, but I don’t care. It’s a great inspiration resource.
