Lighting / Get Him To the Greek

Wednesday, June 09, 2010

The other day I accidentally broke one of the chains off of my ceiling light/fan. It still works, but it's more difficult turning the light on and off. It can easily be fixed but it got me curious. So it got me browsing a few websites for different types of lighting.

If you've been following my blog for awhile, you all know how much I love chandeliers. While pretty, it doesn't go well with my bedroom. (I could still drool over them, can't I?) :)

Then I stumbled onto pendant lights. I like how modern they look.above pictures are from CSNLighting

Below is a ceiling fan from Home Depot, and it's basically what I have right now (except mine is all white, and of course one of the chains is missing haha).
For now, I'm going to try to fix the chain. But when I do move out, I'm definitely getting a chandelier & pendant light somewhere!

I also saw Get Him to the Greek last night. It had his funny parts, but I got pretty bored in the middle & the rest of the movie sucked for me. Did any of you see it yet?


P.S. Stay tuned for an upcoming giveaway!!

I love a chandelier, too! I have one in every room including the kitchen...I'm addicted.
Russell Brand annoys the heck outta me, I saw the trailer for this movie last night and it didn't look good.

Sorry the movie was lame. I hate when I spend money on something that disappoints.

I love chandeliers too but the modern ones are very cool too!! =)

I saw "Get him to the Greek" & I liked it except for all the drugs in it. I was a lil disappointed in it all & grossed out by Jonah Hill's constant puking in the movie. lol =P

Movies are terribly expensive to see in theater so I appreciate the tip. I think I am leaning more towards watching A Team anyway =)
And chandeliers are my favorite.

Sherin said...

I really want to see that movie. I'm a huge Jonah Hill and Russell Brand fan!

SabinePsynopsis said...

Love the one with the fan. Wouldn't that be perfect for summer? I can imagine that the film wasn't that great - Russell Brand is certainly more a geek than a greek. Ha ha ha, I amaze myself with my word inventions. xoxo

I would very much like a chandelier for my bedroom, the problem is that my bed is too high so I might hit my head when I get up in the morning. Sigh. it looks so elegant having one on top of your bed though!! btw I gave you an award!

I'm a sucker for pendant lights! CB2 has a very cool modern light that you can also adjust the height on...I'm so in love! But mostly I have the Home Depot lights in my home...
