Out With the Eyesore...

As most of you know by now, I recently moved into my first apartment in Nashville. I was sort of surprised by the lack of overhead lighting (none in the living room or bedroom) and appalled at what they considered to be acceptable in the dining area.

See Exhibit A. It's brass, and it hangs down so low that I hit my head.


I should say that it hung down so low that I used to hit my head. :)

Yay for this stylish, yet scale-appropriate, fixture from Schoolhouse Electric, by way of my friend Holly. The maintenance guy from the apartment complex came and installed it for me, and I have to say that I am enjoying how it looks.


  1. Ohh I love it!! Nice choice, looks so good!

  2. it is never too soon to rid the world of shiny brass Colonial Williamsburg light fixtures. I applaud you, sir!

  3. What a great upgrade; as a renter it is nice to make things fit your taste within limits and I love this idea!
