Anyway, to the surprise of no one who reads their site regularly (like me), they created their own lighting collection with a local lighting company in Virginia, Shades of Light. And it is seriously awesome. Creative, fun, bright colors, and all under $99! Yes, under $99! I daresay that is cheaper than some of the lights I have been researching (from IKEA) for the guest room makeover. Oh yeah, we’re still working on the guest room. And even though I had originally planned to paint it a deep, smoky gray – we went with this color instead! So I poked around their collection a little and this is what I found.
I love Burger (their dog) as much as the next person, but I know two little panthers who would be very offended by this choice!
Such a gorgeous light fixture – but for the guest room? I don’t think so. Maybe somewhere in a kitchen?
Oh the farmhouse pendants always get me. So cool. But in a guest room? Nope. Maybe over a quirky wooden dining table?
This one is definitely runner-up. It picks up some color from the artwork. And it’s so unique. But maybe not enough.

But this one. Oh the over-sized globe pendant. It’s a winner! I love that this light fixture will really make a statement (it’s two feet wide) in a room that gets a lot of varied traffic and that it coordinates with the wall color (I think it might be more green, but it’s hard to tell). And as mentioned by John and Sherry, I love the idea of the pattern on the ceiling if you use a clear bulb. So, light fixture is purchased – more about the guest room to come!
