What Houzz contributors are saying:
Don’t forget the lightingImagine this house without the hanging lanterns. This simple touch implies alignment and defines movement through the space. The proportions are modest, and the baseboard and trim details are common. The light fixtures add enough punch to give the space more individual character. Granted, you will need a high ceiling to achieve this exact effect. There is a vaulted dormer in this case; however, many different sizes of light fixtures can produce a similar detail. Look for fixtures that complement your architecture and are well scaled to your circumstances. As mentioned above, allow at least 84 in. for head clearance.
