If you've ever sourced lighting for a home, you know that decent looking fixtures aren't cheap. Visual Comfort is one of my favorite sources for lighting, as their styles are classic, and the quality is good. However, it comes at a pretty penny, with most fixtures being in the $400+ range (and that adds up fast when you are buying multiple fixtures).
I just spotted this flush-mount fixture at Ballard, and I am in love (or at least in like)! The Greek key detailing is fantastic. It could only be better if it came in a truer gold rather than bronze (typical Ballard- they don't get anything *exactly* right), but for the $199 price, you can't beat it.
Sorry for the infrequent blog posting. We aren't really in a routine yet, so I'm just taking things day by day and enjoying time with my children and new baby. Thanks for being patient!
