Beaufort House Update: Seeing the Light

Hi, friends! We hope you all had a wonderful Monday. We didn’t get to Beaufort this week, so not much to report, but, the good news is, that means double progress for next week! One of the first things we need to pick for the house is the light fixtures, and we have a few things that we’re considering. 
For the kitchen, these clean, simple, white pendants with silver on the inside are one of our possible picks.
But we also are partial to sleek, chrome fixtures like these, especially since we’re thinking of using this kind of bar stool. 
Another cool pendant choice for the kitchen. This one is a little more rustic.
These are so gorgeous! Which would you pick for your kitchen?
We’re pretty set on this driftwood sphere for the living room. It adds that rustic, beachy touch while still being fabulous.
We are thinking of this oyster shell fixture for the dining room. The intricate detail of it is amazing.
This gorgeous shell chandelier is one of our favorite choices for the entrance hall. 
Aren’t these great for the downstairs master? A splash of gold is always fun! 
Thanks for stopping by and following our progress.

  3. I am just so impressed that you have done so much! so great to share in the process:) Love your pics, for the kitchen, the first is a nice strong piece, and lends more industrial vibe…whereas the rest have an earthy element…sometimes a big statement is made with only one piece. Whatever you choose, it will be perfect! Have fun!

  4. WOW. Those are some gorgeous lighting options! I’m stuck on the driftwood sphere – so perfect!!!

  5. ha! ps:) also love that the inside looks to have a gold lining which hints to your master bedroom idea… kinda like white megaphone with glam…o’k thats not very industrial! But anyway….xob

  6. I love the first pendants for he kitchen. I love the white with the inner shine. The driftwood in the living room is very cool. You have some great ideas here.

  7. I have the first ones (Goodman Hanging Lamp) in our kitchen (but in antiqued nickle), they are by Visual Comfort, the interior is not silver though, it is hand rubbed brass…they are spectacular and come in 3 sizes…adore them! The round ball ones (Hicks Pendants) are from VC as well, the Hicks, also comes in 3 sizes and a few finishes, I used them in our mud room and people always comment on them. You can’t go wrong with anything by VC, I use their lights in all of our homes!! Good luck, those are some amazing selections!!!

  8. Im not sure which i d choose, perhaps the first lights i think. i like the idea of them being silver on the inside…

  10. You have such great choices. Good you are planning the lighting now to save for it in the budget! Icing on the cake!

  11. Lighting is so much fun,and there are so many possibilites! Like the first one the best, Currey also makes this wicker/seagrass looking pendant lantern which I helped a friend choose for her beach house and I have to say it was amazing! Love the “shell” influenced lightings too! So exciting.

  12. I love every one of your choices! So exciting…..

  13. did you not love that blue ceiling????

  14. Loving these elements. I know what you’re doing will be wonderful, and all of us want to see every step!!

  19. I love all of your choices but I really love those Hicks pendants…actually I’ll take that whole kitchen!

  20. I used a Hudson Valley Lighting pendant like those in the 2nd photo over my sister’s kitchen sink and love that look. I also have the Visual Comfort Hicks pendant in the 4th photo (in a different finish) in the small entry of my summer cottage and love it! I use either of them again.

  21. Oh what pretty choices. I’m partial to the third option for pendant lights. I love your idea for the shell chandelier, that’s going to be gorgeous. What fun.

  22. I love white kitchens!!!!!! Hope you have a wonderful week!

  23. Oooh.. I love them all! Tough choices…but so fun!

  24. Good luck selecting lights! Sometimes they tend to be hard, but I know you will select some fabulous fixtures!! Love all the fixtures you showed here, and I loved that turquoise pantry door (I know that wasn’t what we were looking at but it just popped).
