Anyway, back to the topic of replacing standard lighting. We scoured the interwebs and local stores for fabulous (discounted) pieces, because the only thing better than a beautiful decorative accent is one you scored at an amazing price, right?
Capitol City Homes, the team who's building our new home, had some great basics to offer us, and we're taking full advantage. Fortunately they're also willing to install lights we bring to the party!
We thought it would be fun to share those with you...
This one was from Gallery74 ($99). It was in my office, but will be adorning our younger daughter's bedroom.
And here's another one from Gallery74, this time for our older daughter's bedroom. Be sure to check Gallery74's $99 and under page for beautiful fixtures. Having ordered them, we can also say they are good quality as well as affordable.

At Overstock.com we purchased this fixture (times 2) for the master vanity. We liked the graceful, clean lines and pillar shades.

Here's another steal from Lowe's clearance. Won't it be lovely in the entry? It's a good "intro" to our mash-up style of rustic/agri-industrial with sparkly.

In our current house this illuminates our breakfast area, but in the new home it will be in our office. It's a slightly more modern interpretation of our design aesthetic. We got this beauty online at LampsPlus.com At the time it was on sale for about $100.

For $89 each, these pendants from Home Decorator's will add a little opulence over our kitchen island. They don't even have to be hard-wired, they're available with an adapter for can lights. How cool is that?

At the moment our bonus room looks like a lighting store warehouse! In an upcoming post we'll show you these pieces in their new home, as well as the builder fixtures we chose.
Lighting provides excellent opportunities to showcase your style, and it doesn't have to brake the bank!
