Our apartment came equipped with some odd lighting choices. In fact, in a four-room+bathroom apartment, every single room has a fixture that is strange in some way. Want a tour?
Let’s start in the living room, with the droopiest ceiling fan:
Surely the blades are not meant to be at that angle! And the frosted glass look is not to my taste, either. (I dream of a fan like Kim and Scott’s new find to replace it!)
Heading towards the back of the house, here is the dirty and stark ceiling fixture in the study:
To make matters worse, the bulbs that we found in there when we moved in are at radically different temperatures:
I have big plans to follow Jenny’s instructions to make my own light and replace it! I think this fun DIY would work with both purposes of the room, which are (for right now) a study and a bar area. :)
In the kitchen, I have already mentioned the weirdness that is the green plywood ceiling medallion. Here’s a better photo, showing how it enhances the “beauty” of the cherry-and-frosted-glass fan.
It would be great to have an Aluma in here too, and get rid of that ceiling medallion!
