Seeing the Light Fixtures, Remodeling Can be Fun, and the Weekly Photo Challenge: Quest

Remodeling projects are a quest for beauty, practicality, and OK, resale value. But here’s what I hadn’t realized —  they can also be a quest for fun. Before I settle down and get practical, I’ll share these favorites among the lights I’ve seen while shopping and touring.

Who knew there were light fixtures for plane and train fans (and small boys)… these were a happy surprise when I was shopping.

Train car light fixture - "Choo Choo"

It’s “Choo Choo”, the train car light. I loved the airplane so much that I had to ask what else was available — this is from the catalog.

Hall light fixtures from Modern Atlanta Homes Tour house

I love this starry minimalist light from the Modern Atlanta Homes Tour – too bad I’ve neither the budget nor the expansive hallway to support one.

Sputnik light - Modern Atlanta Homes Tour

And lights can be fun — this one reminds me of the Sputnik era. And I love how they echoed the shape with the plant below.

And for the nostalgic, a closer look

And for those who prefer a quest for fire, I’ll include these, also from past Modern Atlanta Homes Tours…

What will it be, fire or light?

  1. Very minimalist and stylish modern decor. So many choices but as you inferred, for some of us it is a matter of see no touch 😊 I prefer lights overhead or on a light stand because they will bring more light than a fireplace. You can always use a jacket or extra blanket for warmth and save on bills.

    • Yes, those lights and fires are great fun, but I expect far out of range for my budget. Still, so much fun to see them. I’m looking for something smart but affordable for over my dining table. (it takes a lot of looking) And, you are so right about the fireplace!
