I had entirely different plans for the ceiling fixture in bubba’s room, and also some cool ideas for the guest room. But we recently had some stinking hot days that forced me to crankily reconsider allowing the fan in the nursery to stay. Very crankily.
I figured I could at least get a fresh new start with something a bit more streamlined and modern and went on a fan hunt for something that looked ok, without the price tag. Not the easiest of tasks when you in general think fans are butt-ugly.
So yesterday they new fans were installed.
In the nursery (can you still call it nursery when the kid is almost three?) I think it looks ok. It suits somehow, even though I had initially something entirely different and colourful planned for her. I’d even go so far as to say I quite like it.
In the guest room… It already looks dated! I’m devastated! Almost hate it, and it’s the same fan as in the nursery!
Maybe because the room is grotty and makeshift? Some fresh paint, intentional furniture and window exposed might make it look ok?
My comfort (I keep telling myself) is that it works beautifully, is quiet, gives a bright but warm light, and has a remote for convenience. We’ll see. Once the room is painted and dressed to actually be inviting, maybe the fan will change shape?
There is a lot going on in the house currently, but nothing seems to ever be completed so that I can show you something! In the next 2-3 weeks I have six different trades coming here to do different things. Three of them involve the front porch so that will get a nice lift before Christmas.
Five weeks now until house guest arrives… Breathe, Anna, breathe…
