wednesday wishlist: the olive leaf light


Our home is still coming along slowly but surely--"slowly" being the key word. Although we have found most of our furniture, I have become overwhelmed by the process of selecting lighting and many of the other little accents that are so important to pulling a space together.

One room that I have been hemming and hawing over is our downstairs powder room. So far I have covered the walls in Thibaut Tanzania and placed a large gold mirror above the sink:

Check and check.

I also found a small bamboo plant stand (which I spray painted gold, of course) and a fuchsia orchid to place upon it for a pop of color. And although I have yet to settle on a towel rack, I bought some beautiful embroidered linen hand towels from TG Hatfield Company (aka Splendid Sass) on Etsy:

But that's all I have in the powder room. Well, that and a potty!

So as you can imagine, in addition to a towel rack, I have been searching for a fabulous light fixture, and I think I may have finally found one!

Behold the beautiful Olive Leaf Light:

I am confident this gilded fixture will look stunning against the white ceiling, as well as compliment the other decorative accents in the powder room. I think.

The main reason it has taken me so long to select a fixture is because I am one of the most indecisive people you will ever meet--I mean, there are so many options out there! On that note, one of the other fixtures I had been considering was this drum pendant/crystal chandelier which I found on Overstock:

I think a flushmount will work best, as I wouldn't want the light fixture to compete with my mirror, but I suppose I could affix this drum pendant quite close to the ceiling...

Feel free to chime in with your ever-so-helpful and kind comments! They always make my day!

I fell in love with the Olive Leaf Light as well. I saw it on Ballard's website and almost purchased it when it was on sale for an additional 20% off. I regrettably settled for a Schoolhouse pendant. Good luck in your decision. I know whatever you choose your powder room will be fabulous.
