There have been a couple changes made in the breakfast room. The peacock picture that used to hang above the fireplace in the great room now hangs in here and the other new thing is my new light fixture.
I am loving this new hanging lantern from Ballard Designs. I have been wanting to replace the chandy I had hanging here for quite some time. The chandy was okay, but it was never centered over the table and that really bugged me.
I have been pinning lanterns that I love such as this one from Shades of Light.
I was considering this one from Lamps Plus.
And even this one from Pottery Barn.
But then I was looking through my Ballard Designs catalog on Labor Day and spotted this beauty and it was on sale! Some of the other lanterns I was thinking about were a bit pricey.
The light arrived very quickly and Mr. Savvy hung it last weekend. He moved the light back towards the window behind the table about six inches. I knew he could either patch the holes and I could repaint the entire ceiling in the breakfast room and kitchen or I could buy a medallion and paint that. I chose the latter. Much easier to paint a medallion than a whole ceiling.
I love how the medallion turned out and will share a tutorial on how I achieved that look later.
Now it hangs centered over the table. I never showed y'all the chandy straight on like this because it was so off.
I love how the peacock picture ties in with the yellow table and chairs.
This light comes in three colors bronze, verdigris and the brick red. I knew the brick red would be perfect and it is exactly like I thought it would be.
The only fall touch I added in here was filling my vintage dough bowl with some of my dried hydrangeas that I cut off my bush last month.
Here is how the old chandy looked. It found a new home in my laundry room. We replaced the florescent light with it and that is when I burned my arm on one of the bulbs. Ouch!
Now I am loving my new red lantern in breakfast room.
