Pendant light in the lounge room - I actually don't mind it but the orange light it emits is hard to get used to. It looks original and seems to be made of painted shell.
As I am chronicling the "before" shots of all the rooms in anticipation for the "happily ever after" shots, I couldn't resist taking photos of the lighting situation in the Sow's Ear. It is definitely a situation!
It seems light and mood was ignored in this sad little home.
Bathroom light shade - this is an old glass shade with bakelite fitting
And I don't think I have improved matters either, since we had the Climate Smart Home Service electrician come to the house.
Sadly, this sits above our dining room table.
(For those who do not reside in Queensland, this service is a State Government initiative to help reduce energy consumption. For $50 an electrician replaces up to 15 incandescent lightbulbs with compact flourescent bulbs, fits a water-wise showerhead and supplies a wireless energy monitor which tells you how much energy you are using - the $50 is then refundable via a grant through your local council.)
Well, we had all the bulbs replaced - and they are butt ugly! Especially with the style of lighting here. As evil as incandescent bulbs have become, they were kind of discrete.
Study light. What can one say?
Fortunately, I can console myself that I am saving the planet from needless carbon emmissions. A shame it just accentuated the ugliness of the light fittings.
Light in the entry
Master bedroom light fitting. This light is really appalling when I view this picture! The ceiling rose is divine though.
