Lighting in the Bathroom

Hi guys!

The school year is in full swing for most of the household and I, for one, am loving it!  Of course, I dreaded going back to a full-on routine with checking homework, regular showers (for them!) and finding lost shoes when all hell has broken loose in the am.  But now that we’re at it, it’s nice…

You’d think I’d instantly have some free time, but I’ve still got the tiny at home until Sept. 1 when he starts preschool.  Once he’s in school (cue Hallelujah!!) I’m really hoping I can knock out some projects that require all my brain cells.  I seriously cannot focus with a 3 year old around.

I’ve got a few projects in mind but I’d love to finally get a chandi back into the master bath.  I don’t want to force it though… it’s gotta be PERFECT!

Awhile back, I ripped out this photo from Architectural Digest.  It was one of their best bathrooms of 2016… Feast yo eyeballs!!

What strikes me most is the vibe… masculine, clean, timeless, sleek, modern.  I just love it.  And I LOVE the Rewire chandelier.  It’s a measly $9,500 plus tax.

So, uhm, that’s out.  But I think I can still get a similar look, hopefully at a fraction of the cost!

Here are a few that I’m considering…

First up, the ubiquitous West Elm mobile chandelier.  I’ve seen it in person and it is very nice.  I don’t love the cord situation, but it’s not terrible or anything… I wouldn’t be reinventing the wheel here, but it’s a good option for sure.

Surprisingly, I found this great option on ebay, Industrial 2/4/6 Lights, and I think it looks pretty awesome!  It’s just that for the price, I’m not really sure how it will look in person.  But it’s pretty close to what I’m looking for… and I like the 4 light version too!!

Though not sputnik-style, there is something I really dig about this Restoration Harware Cosmos option.  It’s classy and traditional, and with RH you know the quality is there.

This amazing find, is called Miro and it’s SO good.  But at 25″, is it too small??

What do you think?  I know that I want to get rid of the steps, and eventually change out the tile, but I’m not sure about the tub… keep it built in?  Get a free standing?  SO MANY IDEAS!!
