Toast & Tea At Home: Home Office Lighting

We have been slowly but surely working on finishing our home office. If you have completed any home updates, you know how it goes, but it always seems like just when we think we are close to finishing a particular job, we run into some little issue that needs to be addressed. Little issues have a great way of taking (what feels like) an eternity to be resolved. Nonetheless, I am here today to talk about something very exciting: lighting!

As this is our first home, this is the first time that I have been able to decide exactly what kind of lighting I want and where. I really think that lighting makes such a difference in the overall feel of a room, so I have had fun scouring the internet and local stores to find the perfect lighting.

Typically, I am not someone who goes into one store, sees a nice light fixture, and makes a purchase right away. Finding the perfect light fixture (or piece of furniture, for that matter) entails many hours of browsing Pinterest, looking at any online light sources I can find, and searching in local stores. Especially when it comes to making bigger purchases that I hope we’ll be happy with for years to come, I like to be sure!

I recently shared our design plans for our home office, but at that time, hadn’t quite decided about lighting. Since then, I think we have a better idea of what we are looking for. We are still trying to decide between a flush mount, semi-flush mount or a pendant, but otherwise there definitely seems to be a theme going on with all the brass and small black accents. I’d love to hear which ones you like best!

The following are options we are considering. Currently, I think we have it narrowed down a bit more, but that can sometimes change on a daily basis. I swear, I’m not crazy, but don’t ask my husband.
