As the anxious wait for news of PCI continues, we are keeping ourselves distracted by ticking things off the long list of post handover jobs. It feels like every spare minute we have is spent running house-related errands.
Last weekend was all about lights. I had already spent a lot of time short listing pendant choices for the house so it was a relatively simple selection process.
For the bedrooms, the girls have given the large ‘Polk’ pendant the thumbs up. Little missy moo and miss 14yo have chosen white whilst miss C has picked the black pendant. I couldn’t justify splurging on the Coco Flip but I found the Polk a fantastic alternative.
For the entrance, we want something subtle but not boring, and won’t clash with the hero of the space – Tarisse King ‘Earth Images’. So, we are leaning towards the idea of a timber pendant like this timber ribbon.
Or maybe the Bali Ball.. In the dining room, we need a fairly large pendant to provide sufficient lighting for our 2.7m x 1.2m reclaimed wooden table. The lighting expert at Z Two suggested getting two smaller pendants (60cm diameter) instead of one large (90cm). We only provisioned one light point in the dining room so before we commit to buying two pendants, we need to check with the electrician. We have three light points provisioned for the kitchen island. To tie in with the black dining room pendant, we have decided on the Tom Dixon Beat.
The stairwell void is earmarked for the bold statement piece – Raimond Moooi pendant. The only question we are mulling over is whether we should go for one large (89cm) pendant or a cluster of three pendants – possibly two small (43cm) and one medium (61cm) at offsetting heights. Decisions decisions decisions!
