As you know we're well under way with house renovation, - as a keen aspiring interior designer - I'm well under way with interior preparation for our house!
We're just had all our wall painted top-to-bottom in Dulux's Natural Calico it's now time to put our lighting up! So for this blog post I thought I'd share my lighting purchases with you.


1. 'VITEMOLLA' Ceiling Light
I chose this light for our Bathroom which is going to be completely updated with a roll top bath, traditional style toilet and sink and walk in shower too.
We've chosen to have a white theme in the bathroom (with a stylish twist that I'll be sharing in a Bathroom blog post soon!), I thought this triple black metal spotlight would be perfect for our bathroom with a subtle statement.

2. OTTAVA Ceiling Light
As I mentioned in my previous blog post my initial idea was to have brass light fixtures, however the switches we planned to have weren't available in brass, so we compromised with polished chrome.
I've always wanted a pendant lamp for the kitchen as we're after a vintage edge look for our kitchen and when I found this amazing chrome pendant ceiling lamp in IKEA it was just perfect.
For £35 it was a no brainer!

3. VITEMOLLA Wall Lamp
As our house is old there aren't very many ceiling lights in the house, most of the lights are actually wall lights. I know I wanted a statement light for each wall fitting. So stumbling around IKEA as you do, I found these Vitemolla Wall Lights that are just completely perfect for the look in our house.

4. HEKTAR 3 Spot Ceiling Light
When our electrician came he managed to reinstall one of our ceiling lights above the staircase which meant I needed another wide ceiling light.
I really wanted to find a light that I could direct down our staircase to highlight the curved ceiling.
When I found this HEKTAR light on it was just everything I wanted for the new fitting, and it was the perfect matte black finish to match the wall lights.

5. HEMMA Table Lamp & NITTIO Copper Globe Bulb
Table Lamp £8  and Copper Bulb £10 and from IKEA
Tom and I love Copper and originally wanted all our lights throughout the house to be copper, however when we realised we had to have polished chrome fixtures we decided to go for black instead.
We found this amazing lamp stand in ikea that's matte black and matches our other lights but them this amazing statement Copper Globe Bulb which together, make the most amazing subtle statement Bedside Lamps!

6. Black Twin Up-Down Wall Light
As I showed in my previous blog post I mentioned we've exposed a stone wall in our living room.
As this is going to be the main feature in our living room, we wanted to add lighting to highlight the wall and set off the feature.
Up-Down lights are perfect for this, as they light up certain areas of the wall and bounce off the exposed stone while leaving attractive shadows too.
We found this matte black up-down light from TLC Electrical which is the perfect finish match for our IKEA Wall Lights that are going in the same room.

I hope you enjoyed this post if you're renovating your home, or just looking for some new lighting inspiration! I've really enjoyed shopping for the perfect lighting for my first home.
