GHEM Living: In Search of the Perfect Pendant Lighting

Lighting. It’s a tough subject for two reasons: 1. It’s expenive. 2. There’s so much to choose from!! The first light I’d like to tackle is the one for the living room. It will be above our couch and right in the center of our open-concept living space. I think it needs to be wide but not hang too low. Ideally it would also be affordable, any suggestions? If you look at the image below, note that it will hang from that hole in the ceiling on the top right. Don’t look at the color on the walls! we’re changing them to a light gray very soon! and changing the wooden roman blinds to a medium gray colored drapes eventually!


As we slowly make our new home our own we are finding ourselves always left with a bunch of questions when we begin to think about lighting. Do we want everything to coordinate throughout the entire house? Should we try to make something ourselves? What do we really want? I’m kind of thinking maybe a two-tiered drum pendant like the one pictured below:
