Fall Room Refresh (Oh, and a $500 Bellacor Giveaway!)




I’ve been back home for two weeks and it has been nothing short of amazing. The little things are no longer taken for granted: our own bed, our own bathroom, the five-minute commute to the office…and knowing I can enjoy a morning cup of coffee in my underwear without running into my mother-in-law.

Now that the renovation is (mostly) complete, and the dust is settling, the unpacking has begun. As I’m slowly unpacking boxes and rearranging furniture, we did a little extra sprucing here and there. The unsettling realization I’m having is that renovations are incredibly satisfying at completion, and I fear I may have become a bit addicted to demolition.

So, instead of knocking down another wall, it’s safe to say the easiest way to satisfy my need to update, without a complete overhaul or painting, is to refresh the lighting fixtures. Lighting fixtures are one of the most overlooked items in the home, that can easily be updated to make a big impact on the space. A word of obvious caution, replacing lighting can be dangerous. If you don’t know what you are doing, call a professional. Duh.


Thanks to Wit & Delight I’ve been fortunate to work with some really great brands and partners, Bellacor being one of them. I was introduced to Bellacor earlier this year, when participating in a live styling demonstration at the Mall of America, where they provided lighting. They are a local Minneapolis company, that has become one of my go-tos for projects both personal and professional. Bellacor is currently celebrating 15 years, along with a launch of a new website. To help celebrate, they are offering a $500 Gift Card to one lucky Wit & Delight reader. See entry details at the bottom of the post.


Before selecting fixtures for the house, I pulled together some of my favorite products from the site. They have a MASSIVE selection, so be prepared to invest the time to search…it’s worth it.

From Left to Right: Hudson Valley Fletcher Aged Brass One-Light Wall Sconce with White Faux Silk Shade, $270 / Progress Lighting P5070-137 Penn Natural Brass 10-Inch One-Light Globe Pendant, $97 / Arteriors Home Nolan Vintage Brass Pendant, $1080 / Arteriors Home Caprice Aqua Glass Lamp, $240 / Arteriors Home Mara Polished Brass Small Pendant, $720 / Arteriors Home Lonny Vintage Brass Two-Light Electrified Wall Sconce, $522 / Moe’s Home Collection Living Black Large Pendant Lamp, $1005 / Hudson Valley Tuckahoe Aged Brass One-Light Sconce, $268 / Arteriors Home Nevada Aqua Lamp, $312 / Arteriors Home Wyndham Natural Wax 29.5-Inch Bar Stool, $576 / Arteriors Home Calvin Antique Brass 31-Inch Chair, $1,992 / Arteriors Home Jacoby Antique Brass and White Two-Light Floor Lamp, $960

Now, on to the little updates I made…


Just over a month ago, I spent a weekend painting my home office, and the color and new furniture changed the space dramatically. I used a bit of editorial license when shooting the room for Instagram and the blog. Thanks to my own self-imposed deadline, I couldn’t find the lighting I wanted in time, so I just went with my original fixtures.  Still pictured in the “after” photos, utilized the oh-so-charming flame bulb, which no longer (did it ever?) fit the new look of the room. In my haste to complete the project, I simply replaced the bulb with a regular bulb. The fixtures are over 50 years old and just didn’t hold up through the renovation, so we decided to replace them once we moved back into the house. I installed the Hudson Valley Tuckahoe Aged Brass One-Light Sconce all on my own and love how it looks against the cobalt blue walls. It’s clean and simple, and gives off much more light than the original fixtures. We donated our old fixtures to an architectural salvage yard, so someone can breathe new life into them!


We also replaced the original fixture in our entryway! The wall on the far right is new… it used to opened up into the kitchen. Now that we closed that wall off, we have a real (albeit small) foyer. I love having a defined space here! The dresser holds all of our scarves, hats and gloves, and is nice landing place for wallets, cards, keys, spare change, etc. Given our ceilings are a little higher than you’d usually find in older homes, I wanted to find a fixture that could bring a little extra drama to this small space, without going overboard.


Joe had a lot of opinions about what went in this space, mostly because he was worried he would hit his head if I was to make the final selection. (This is fair, because I bought two light fixtures that didn’t work prior to this collaboration with Bellacor.) We went with the George Kovacs Pontil Honey Gold Six-Light Chandelier, which still incorporates that bold, brassiness that I love, with light.

    I’d get the Penn Natural Brass 10-Inch One-Light Globe Pendant for our dining room.

    And I need some new bathroom lighting, so i’m thinking of this: http://bit.ly/1NPlOJy

    Finally, I love this http://bit.ly/1NPm7Ec Crystorama Lighting Group Solaris English Bronze Six-Light Chandelier maybe for over the kitchen table. But I’d need a new table… 🙂

    I would love that George Kovacs Pontil Honey Gold Six-Light Chandelier in my kitchen. We have the most awful fluorescent lighting in there that I really would love to change.

  3. Sarah

    September 21st, 2015 at 2:22 pm

    I love the Robinson Blvd black one-light globe pendant (http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/avenue-lighting-hf-9111-bk-bz-robertson-blvd-black-one-light-globe-pendant-1619425.htm). The pendants in our kitchen are pretty outdated and a set of these would be the perfect replacements!

    We’re in need of a new light in our kitchen, love this Minka-Lavery One-Light Semi-Flush Mount in Polished Nickel (http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/minka-lavery-2255-613-one-light-semi-flush-mount-in-polished-nickel-855000.htm)!

    I just moved into a beautiful loft apartment in my favorite old part of town, but it’s a basement unit and needs some serious help in the lighting department! I need a combination of lamps and lights at different heights to bring some brightness to the space.

    I’d use:
    1.) The Hinkley Plantation Nickel Mini Pendant (http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/hinkley-5317pl-plantation-nickel-mini-pendant-114670.htm) over my nightstand, for the perfect amount of nighttime reading light.
    2.) The Crystorama Lighting Group Paris Flea Mini Chandelier (http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/crystorama-lighting-group-4503-cm-paris-flea-mini-chandelier-33780.htm) to add quirkiness and ambience above my retro 60s dinette set.
    3.) The AF Lighting Angelo Home White One Light Floor Lamp (http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/af-lighting-8596-fl-angelo-home-white-one-light-floor-lamp-1132841.htm) to bring light to a particularly dark study corner.

    Thanks to Bellacor for offering such a stunning selection of options!

    We moved into our house over a year ago and I still hate the builder grade/generic light figure over our dinning room table. Something like the Solaris English Bronze Six-Light Pendant fits our aesthetic much better.

  7. Gillian

    September 21st, 2015 at 2:38 pm

    That Arteriors Home Mara Polished Brass Small Pendant would look amazing in my front entry! I’ve been looking for something to spruce up my ugly rental pendant.

    Thanks for doing this!

    I love the Inca Bronze single pendant. I’d hang it right over our dining table.

    we want to update a kitchen a bit. paint, add a back splash and update to cabinet fixtures. with this gift card i would put it toward the brushed brass bar pulls for the cabinets and i would like to get a new facet for the sink. I really like the new Orleans polished brass metal facet.

    OBSESSING over the Hudson Valley Tuckahoe Aged Brass One-Light Sconce (http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/hudson-valley-650-agb-tuckahoe-aged-brass-one-light-sconce-631064.htm)!

    I would love to use three of these in my master bathroom remodel that we’re working on.

    I really like the Danika White One Light Pendant Dome lighting (http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/kichler-43683wh-danika-white-one-light-pendant-1598542.htm) . I think it would look really great in my kitchen. It has a sort of modern farmhouse feel, which is totally the vibe my house has.

  12. Lindy

    September 21st, 2015 at 2:56 pm

    Definitely the Mercer drum pendent (http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/steven-and-chris-lighting-sc541wh-mercer-street-white-six-light-large-round-drum-pendant-726693.htm) to help with light in my living room as these days are getting shorter. Also looking for something like the Civic Center Distressed bench (http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/zuo-modern-contemporary-98124-civic-center-distressed-natural-fir-wood-bench-1525610.htm) for the foot of the bed!

    Just moved into a new home last month and this light would be perfect to build my kitchen and dining room around. Make it the centerpiece and design around it..

    wowee! Your home updates look beautiful! We are in the midst of a few updates ourselves – including a bathroom DIY. Full demo. EEk! The one item we haven’t purchased for our new bathroom is lighting and the Kichler Braelyn fixture is exactly what we’ve been searching for and would love. http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/kichler-45458ch-braelyn-chrome-two-light-bath-sconce-1626680.htm The other item we’ve been yet to find is lighting for our bedroom, specially for reading in bed. The CP Rizzo are stunning and would fit in perfect with our little bedroom update. http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/lite-source-ls-16753aged-cp-rizzo-aged-copper-one-light-swing-arm-wall-lamp-466414.htm Thanks for sharing a great local resource. xo

    I’m in need of new light fixtures everywhere. I’ve been looking since I bought the house and haven’t found much I like that I can afford. But, I did find these on the Bellacor site. Now I just have to decide which one(s) to choose for my kitchen.

    I would LOVE this Kischler Grand Bank Pendant for my dining room!

    and the normandy oval platter – http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/dover-metals-company-n-410b-normandy-large-oval-platter-334843.htm
    and azoura rectangular platter – http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/le-souk-ceramique-az-29-azoura-rectangular-platter-820492.htm

    I’m in the process of clearing out a bedroom in my condo to make it an at-home office. Yours is a beauty! I’d love to add a fun fixture like this one to the room: http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/crystorama-lighting-group-277-bs-eva-burnished-silver-three-light-jute-thread-bead-chandelier-1517875.htm

  23. Catherine Anderson

    September 21st, 2015 at 3:40 pm

    I love the Leilani Antiqued Gold Leaf Six-Light Globe Pendant (http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/arteriors-home-42023-leilani-antiqued-gold-leaf-six-light-globe-pendant-1572060.htm) but since I don’t have the extra $700, I might go with the Etruscan Gold Nine-Light Chandelier (http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/maxim-lighting-international-2852eg-elegante-etruscan-gold-nine-light-chandelier-93815.htm) for my dining room.

  24. Chloe

    September 21st, 2015 at 3:48 pm

    What a great company! I need a few new lighting fixtures… I love the simplicity of this one: http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/kichler-42141nics-everly-brushed-nickel-10-5-inch-one-light-pendant-1516654.htm

    Would hang in my dining room!

    Great stuff here! I am looking for a lamp my teenage daughter’s desk. We just redid her room for her birthday with whites, greys and some turquoise.

    We are almost finished decorating our living room space, and I’d love to tackle our dining room area. We have a builder finished home, brand new but with standard builder finishes. I’d love to swap out the current fixture with the Capital Lighting Fixture Company Axis Russet Four Light Pendant!

  27. rachel

    September 21st, 2015 at 4:06 pm

    Maybe a little boring, but I think the biggest impact would be replacing the HIDEOUS ceiling fan/light fixtures in my apartment with something clean and simple like this: http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/minka-aire-f844-wh-light-wave-white-led-52-inch-ceiling-fan-1533651.htm to fit with the light, scandinavian vibe of all of my other stuff. Please pick me!

    The Marquise Silver Six-Light Chandelier is absolutely stunning! http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/feiss-f2942-6slv-marquise-silver-six-light-chandelier-1542550.htm

  29. Julie

    September 21st, 2015 at 4:24 pm

    I love the traditional elegance of the Midtown Matte Nickel 5 light chandelier! Today is my birthday, so I think I might treat myself to a new lighting fixture! This would look so classy over my breakfast table.

  30. Katy

    September 21st, 2015 at 4:59 pm


    I would love this semi-flush for my 1920s kitchen! The tall old cabinets don’t allow for a large fixture but this would be perfect!

  31. Allison Corrado

    September 21st, 2015 at 5:30 pm

    I would buy the Midtown Burnished Bronze Flush Mount for my entryway – so simple and clean!

  32. Alicia

    I would love this lamp! http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/norwell-8475-bn-ms-aidan-brushed-nickel-swing-arm-wall-lamp-760216.htm

    I’ll take the ‘Progress Lighting P5070-137 Penn Natural Brass 10-Inch One-Light Globe Pendant’ that you posted for $500! My guest bedroom flooded a few months ago. My husband recently re-did the floors, so now I’m up with the decorating. I’d love this light to finish off the update. http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/progress-lighting-945070-137-p5070-137-penn-natural-brass-10-inch-one-light-globe-pendant-1640054.htm

    We just moved to our new condo from an apartment that didn’t have a peninsula / island, so we are in dire need of bar stools to eat breakfast / when we have people over they can chat while we cook or any other daily needs! I would love two these http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/arteriors-home-2747-hinkley-sandblast-antique-wax-barstool-1395501.htm because of their rustic industrial vibe that goes really well with the new look I am attempting at the condo! I love the lighting fixture in your entryway, my ceiling is a little short so we went for recessed lights instead but wish for a pendant…

  35. Jordan Smith

    September 21st, 2015 at 6:31 pm

    I would die to have the Pontil Honey Gold Six Light Chandelier brighten up my post-war condo in the Historic Piedmont neighborhood of Portland, OR. Most of the original light fixtures have been replaced with cheap Big Box lights and the great room deserves the charm of this vibrant neighborhood.

    The updated black-and-blue kitchen counter tiles would look remarkable with the Z-Lite Jade Three-Light Large Chrome Convertible Drum Pendant with Black Linen Shade. As it would with the white hexagonal cafe tiles I’ve been eyeing. 🙂

    So many great light fixtures to choose from! I love the George Kovacs Pontil Honey Gold Six Light Chandelier (which is the main reason I dropped everything to enter this contest).
    But if I upgrade my chandelier, my dining chairs will look hideous in comparison. I think the Pyramid Dining Chairs would be a much better fit. http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/modway-furniture-eei-928-whi-pyramid-dining-chairs-set-of-two-in-white-875898.htm
    So many options…

    We just purchased one of the last standing original homes in Tonka Bay, MN. It’s a cute little 1930’s beach cottage in need of a TON of TLC. We’re looking for new fixtures throughout, but ceiling fans are proving to be the biggest struggle. It’s so difficult to find something that is practical AND beautiful! We’re loving the Bellacor Minka Aire Rainman: http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/minka-aire-f582-bnw-rainman-brushed-nickel-54-inch-blade-indoor-outdoor-ceiling-fan-for-wet-l-180974.htm

    We moved into a 1920s brick Tudor over a year ago; and it’s been a challenge to harmonize such a classic style house with our modern decor taste– particularly with lighting. This would work great in our upstairs guest room and office! http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/minka-lavery-4177-249-harbour-point-three-light-semi-flush-mount-in-liberty-gold-855126.htm

    September 21st, 2015 at 6:56 pm

    We just moved into a new place with a dining room and I’m so excited to finally get to eat at a table! The first thing I want to do is get rid of the ugly ceiling fan above the table and replace it with something like the Crystorama Broche Antique Gold Leaf Pendant Chandelier: http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/crystorama-lighting-group-517-ga-broche-antique-gold-six-light-gold-leaf-pendant-chandelier-1517892.htm.

    There are so many choices! I recently updated all the doorknobs in the house to oil rubbed bronze and the lighting fixtures just don’t work anymore. I would first start by replacing all the hallway lighting with either this http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/capital-lighting-fixture-company-3533bb-134-burnished-bronze-one-light-semi-flush-mount-with-1538778.htm or this http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/progress-lighting-94393920-inspire-antique-bronze-two-light-semi-flush-mount-with-beige-linen-966176.htm Then I would replace the entry light with something simple and classic http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/minka-lavery-4177-249-harbour-point-three-light-semi-flush-mount-in-liberty-gold-855126.htm Last but not least, I would update the dining room light fixture. I love the contrasting look of this dome pendant light http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/kalalou-cll1122-gun-metal-one-light-dome-pendant-with-hanging-crystal-1563956.htm

I’ve been looking for the perfect chandelier and I am in love with the honey gold one you also have in your house!! It’s perfect!! We also need new lighting in our kitchen because it is this fluorescent light fixture. I love the aged brass mini pendants, would love a few of those in the kitchen!!

    September 21st, 2015 at 7:10 pm

    We just bought our first condo and are struggling to find the perfect ceiling pendants for our long hallway. Three of the Capital Lighting Fixture Company in Polished Nickel would really elevate our space and match our contemporary style. Right now we have those horrific boob light pendants! http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/capital-lighting-fixture-company-4641pn-136-polished-nickel-one-light-pendant-with-clear-glas-1538904.htm

    Love all of this! My apartment is near complete but needs some last touches. A new area rug for the living room (Perhaps this one? http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/loloi-885369222689-akina-charcoal-and-taupe-rectangular-3-ft-6-in-x-5-ft-6-in-rug-1593626.htm) and a new light fixture for my bedroom (THIS one: http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/elk-lighting-65071-1-farmhouse-oiled-bronze-pendant-779778.htm).

    We are moving into a new house soon. Since the house does not get much light I have been looking for lot of lighting options. These two are great and exactly the kind of theme I was looking for : http://www.bellacor.com/productDetail/george-kovacs-p1806-248-pontil-honey-gold-six-light-chandelier-1561499.htm

    What a fun giveaway! I’m torn between the Pontil Honey Gold Six Light Chandelier (http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/george-kovacs-p1806-248-pontil-honey-gold-six-light-chandelier-1561499.htm) and the Junius Round Gold Round Mirror. (http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/uttermost-13887-junius-round-gold-round-mirror-1571430.htm). Either of these pieces would DRAMATICALLY change apartment I’m renting while in grad school. The entire apartment has wood paneled walls I can’t tamper with….Meaning I NEED ANYTHING to make it feel a little more glamorous and modern. The clear office chair (http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/wholesale-interiors-cc-026a-clear-clear-office-chair-564252.htm) could be a nice addition, too! Love it all!

    I would love to replace all the “boob” flush mount fixtures in my home with the Midtown Matt flush mount fixtures. I have updated some of my lighting and these would finish off the look. I love the modern feel and think they would be timeless.

  80. Kelsey Davis

    September 21st, 2015 at 10:55 pm

    The Artcraft Castello chandelier above our dining room table because it would look badass.

    But then our bathroom would be jealous of the dining room.. so we’d get the Menlo Park Old Silver vanity fixture for that so it could also feel badass.

    September 21st, 2015 at 10:59 pm

    We just bought a house and are in the process of furnishing it. I for sure would buy the Pontil 6-light chandelier you have pictured to put in our front entryway as well: http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/george-kovacs-p1806-248-pontil-honey-gold-six-light-chandelier-1561499.htm.

    My husband and I just got married in May, and we have yet to be able to buy a lot of furniture. This Oslo white coffee table would be a must:
    as would this faux leather futon:
    because we would love to have a functional space in our studio to entertain or have family come to stay that coordinates with a little bit of a Mid-Century Modern aesthetic. Thanks so much for the opportunity to win!

    The owner of our house has suddenly decided he wants to move back in, so we’re currently scrambling to find a new home in the next month. If this were hanging from the ceiling, I’d be able to call any house my new home:


    For the rest of the $500… I would close the shades and let this lovely antique brass floor lamp be my only reading light.


  92. Jenifer

    September 22nd, 2015 at 9:09 am

    My boyfriend and I recently moved into our first apartment together and we have been looking for fixtures that fit both of our styles. The George Kovacs Pontil Honey Gold Six-Light Chandelier is the perfect blend of mid-century chic we are going for! It would be a wonderful focal point for our new living room, which could seriously use a little of that brass shine. 🙂

  93. Chelsea

    September 22nd, 2015 at 9:09 am

    I love both the Sausalito Five-Light Drum Pendant and the Carondelet Burnt Sienna Two-Light Fluorescent Semi-Flush. We desperately need a new fixture for our nursery and either of these (or both -one for the nursery and one for the master bedroom!) would be perfect! We’re looking to replace our nursery lighting that was put in with the building of the house in 1951!

  94. Emily Dudley

    Hi Kate!
    My boyfriend and I are renting this adorable little house in Seattle, but unfortunately a lot of the last finishes were made in the 90’s. That means a LOT of ugly light fixtures! (and glass tile, but that’s for another day…) I can live with most of them, but there’s one random sconce that lives right next to our front door that is just terrible. It screams 90’s at me every time I see it. I’ve been searching something inexpensive to replace it with, and can’t seem to find anything. This contest makes a great option! My boyfriend and I love rustic/industrial lighting, he has actually built up two lamps out of copper pipes because we are so particular 🙂 The Jackson Copper Bronze Sconce suites our style, and the craftsman feel of the home, perfectly. http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/troy-b2501cb-jackson-copper-bronze-one-light-wall-sconce-585707.htm
    Thanks for letting us enter!

  96. Kelly

    I’m in love with the George Kovacs Pontil Honey Gold Six-Light Chandelier featured here. It’s gorgeous enough to make me drop what I was doing and enter! I find that with everything else to do in a house, my bedroom is the first thing that gets neglected. I would love to feature this pretty gold Chandelier over our bed. In addition, I’m crushing on the Visual Comfort and Company Antique Brass Boston Functional Library Fixture. So much gorgeous gold to display!

    Thank you for this contest xo

    Call me insane but I need to change my toilet. We moved into a very dated house and my bathroom is the worst. The sink AND toilet is brown and not a modern, shiny brown either. It is the color of sickness. I would be happy with just a new toilet.

    This is such a great collab! #1 I recently found your blog and absolutely love it! #2 Bellacor has some phenomenal pieces and I was unaware of them until now. I’m actually updating my home right now and have been looking at lanterns. The Flatiron Weathered Iron Four-Light Pendant goes perfectly without industrial, cool tone theme was are developing!

    We closed on our first home this past July. It’s a bit of a fixer upper (http://kittycotten.com/2015/08/our-first-home-before-tour.html). We’ve already put in some serious sweat equity into the place taking down wallpaper, refinishing the floors and painting nearly every surface (http://kittycotten.com/2015/09/fixing-up-the-place.html)! We still have a ton to do, but I know it will be incredibly rewarding when we are ‘finished.’ Our next project is the the dining room. It was the only room we couldn’t get the wallpaper off not matter what we tried! It was stressful and disheartening, but then I had an idea… Shiplap! So we are shiplapping the walls, which I’m super pumped about. So, long story short, I pick a beautiful new chandelier to dangle above our dining room table! My dream chandelier would look like this one: http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/maxim-lighting-international-22419swnab-contessa-natural-aged-brass-12-light-single-tier-chan-1516228.htm. Damn, she’s pretty. If I felt like totally throwing our budget to the wind – this one: http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/arteriors-home-89295-auburn-antique-brass-six-light-chandelier-with-tapered-arm-1394757.htm Thanks for hosting the giveaway! *fingers crossed*

    We have a very open living room space with high ceilings, wooden beams, bamboo flooring, and a 3-sided/exposed corner fireplace. It’s the most challenging room in our house to furnish and style, but it is also the most wonderful room in the house. I’ve been looking for a large chandelier for the room to serve as a centerpiece and focal point. I think that the Artcraft Castello Black and Aspen Wood Chandelier could be the perfect solution! What an amazing collection of lighting and designs! I’m in love!

    My husband and I just moved into an apartment after selling our larger home to simplify. Renting has its challenges, so new floor and bedside table lamps are what I would use to switch up our decor! These two are my favorites: http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/cal-lighting-bo-2162tb-bs-alicante-brushed-steel-and-wood-dk-lamp-w-adjustable-arms-713001.htm and http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/dimond-d1832-led-lancaster-chrome-one-light-led-floor-lamp-1447832.htm

Now I just have to decide what style I want to go for!

    That’s easy, the Jacoby Antique brass and white floor lamp, http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/arteriors-home-79989-jacoby-antique-brass-and-white-two-light-floor-lamp-1572081.htm

    it’ll go perfectly with my newly recovered sofa in my living room.

    I would get the Minka-Lavery Harbour Point Three-Light Semi-Flush Mount in Liberty Gold for my hallway.

    Great timing! We need to replace our bedroom’s ceiling fan. I would pick one of the sleek white ones that has a light – like the Minka Aire Concept II:

    We are embarking on our first home build/design journey this fall, and it’s so overwhelming! Especially when work and life don’t always leave much extra time. If I won, I’d splurge on this modern black and brass fixture that somehow, although contemporary, has loads of depth and character. 🙂 http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/currey-and-company-9504-jean-louis-old-brass-marbella-black-and-gold-leaf-three-light-small-ch-1577731.htm

    I need a bedroom refresh! I am looking for three flushmounts for my long skinny dark half story bedroom, and the Midtown Matte Nickel Flush Mounts would be perfect: http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/capital-lighting-fixture-company-2015mn-480-midtown-matte-nickel-flush-mount-506874.htm

    We need ceiling fans. I hate ceiling fans. These minka aire fans though…. I could live with a few of these 🙂

    Love Love Love! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity. I adore this lamp http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/holtkotter-6505-ab-antique-brass-halogen-pharmacy-lamp-73020.htm Would be a great alternative to my $8 floor lamp that I have in my studio now.(:

    Beautiful renovation so far!
    With the gift card, I would get two things…

    1) for my sister, the six light chandelier you have in your entryway. She needs it in her living room.


    2) the antique pineapple table lamp for my new baby girls room ❤️

  135. Catherine

    September 24th, 2015 at 7:22 am

    I would install the pontil honey gold six light in my living room. We have vaulted ceilings that are currently graced with a ceiling fan.


  136. shaunie

    September 24th, 2015 at 10:45 am

    I would have to say I’d love ceiling fan -Kichler Starkk Brushed Nickel One Light Ceiling Fan for the living room as it will bring out the room even more and we could use the lighting
    (http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/kichler-300173ni-starkk-brushed-nickel-one-light-ceiling-fan-1516431.htm ) plus decorative baskets for decor and organization also in the living room -Winsome Wood Granville Foldable Four Piece Small Corn Husk Baskets, Chocolate (http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/winsome-wood-38409-granville-foldable-four-piece-small-corn-husk-baskets-chocolate-764456.htm)

    Or its brother:

    I would love to spend it on this! http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/kalalou-cll1122-gun-metal-one-light-dome-pendant-with-hanging-crystal-1563956.htm

  139. Lisa

    September 24th, 2015 at 4:52 pm

    Gorgeous! Lighting is my favorite. Like jewelery for the house. : ) If I were to win (fingers are So crossed on this one) I would get two Baldwin Antique Bronze Six-Inch Wall Sconces (Bellacor Number: 1611331)- one for each side of the bed in our master bedroom (we have a sweet sleeping alcove in our little 1930s Seattle tudor) and one Quoizel Newbury Bronze Outdoor Flush Ceiling Light (Bellacor Number: 62258) to upgrade our entry.
    Thank you so much for the generous giveaway. It is fun to fantasize

    Dreaming if I won…

    I’d choose the Feiss Cadence Pendant for my bathroom reno: http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/feiss-p1282dab-mb-cadence-dark-antique-brass-and-matte-black-one-light-pendant-with-white-opa-1542394.htm

  141. Betsie

    September 25th, 2015 at 12:33 pm

    Since I’m renting, I would go with the Mondovi brushed bronze lamp for our living room. The overhead light fixture we have is pretty horrible, and our current lamp is, I’m sorry to say, one of the cheapies from Ikea! We recently got married, so it would be fun to update and upgrade our living space! http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/uttermost-28253-1-mondovi-brushed-bronze-two-light-floor-lamp-1208146.htm

  142. Dana

    I need new bedside reading lights. I would get 2 of these.

  143. Tracy

    September 25th, 2015 at 2:17 pm

    I have a hallway that is in serious need of some adjustable track lighting to illuminate the gallery wall & shelving that is there. The burnt sienna sea-gull lighting would compliment our aesthetic perfectly & the fact that it’s adjustable allows us to shed the light on a variety of items!


  144. Kirstin

    September 25th, 2015 at 3:25 pm

    Love the Kalalou for a bathroom (http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/kalalou-cll1122-gun-metal-one-light-dome-pendant-with-hanging-crystal-1563956.htm) and Kichler Danika (http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/kichler-43683wh-danika-white-one-light-pendant-1598542.htm) for the kitchen!

    We have been wanting to replace the fan above our dining table – this chandelier would make a world of difference in our city home. 🙂

    Much needed new vanity. Now, if Bellacor could only knock out walls to make a double-vanity fit, that would be fantastic

  148. Jenna

    September 26th, 2015 at 9:56 am

    I want to refresh my entryway both inside and out! Here is a start.


  149. Amber

    Weathered brass lamps would look amazing in our bedroom. http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/house-of-troy-dl20-wb-weathered-brass-library-lamp-176276.htm

    Tough choices!
    I like:
    This floor lamp: http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/george-kovacs-p256-084-reading-room-torchiere-floor-lamp-95936.htm
    The tilt wine chiller: http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/nambe-6243-tilt-wine-chiller-392256.htm
    This ship table decanter: http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/ravenscroft-crystal-w2718-ravenscroft-ship-table-lead-free-crystal-decanter-484848.htm
    And I’d let my boyfriend pick something little out for himself 😉

  152. Jaclyn Reynolds

    September 26th, 2015 at 6:36 pm

    This is one of my favorites!! I’d put it in our small bathroom that has an old small mirror inside. http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/spancraft-807-3040rect-bentley-rectangle-vanity-mirror-700027.htm

  153. Cindy A.

    I would buy the Barclay Products Sussex 550 Pedestal Sink.


  154. melinda

    September 26th, 2015 at 7:28 pm

    I’d love a pair of these sconces on either side of our bed! http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/visual-comfort-and-company-sl-2922hab-antique-brass-boston-functional-library-fixture-355675.htm

    Hi Kate!
    We’re remodeling (top to bottom!) a big old 1908 craftsman in SW Minneapolis right by Lake Harriet. I’ve been on the hunt for the *perfect* light fixture for our living room, and I found THIS ONE –> Pontil Honeygold 6-light (Bellacor #: 1561499) on Bellacor’s website… about a day before I saw it in YOUR foyer! And now you’re doing a giveaway with Bellacor! It was all meant to be 🙂 Thanks for all the work you do!

  157. Tory

    September 27th, 2015 at 1:10 pm

    I’d start with the Boda clear glass table lamp for my living room. http://goo.gl/EQQnvD

    Then into the kitchen for a cabinet hardware refresh with the Palermo stainless bar pulls. http://goo.gl/ku0noq

    And I have to find a spot for the Montrez Glazed Gold side table. So awesome! http://goo.gl/fQ1sTm

  158. Kirsta

    September 27th, 2015 at 3:53 pm

    I love the Penn Natural brass pendant (http://www.bellacor.com/productdetail/progress-lighting-945070-137-p5070-137-penn-natural-brass-10-inch-one-light-globe-pendant-1640054.htm)! A pair of these would look perfect in my outdated kitchen that my husband and I are slowly transforming.

  159. Susan Christy

    September 27th, 2015 at 7:06 pm

    I’d get two Concept II Flush 44 Inch Ceiling Fans for my family room that currently has one ancient ceiling fan and one even more ancient light fixture.


  160. Rachel

    September 27th, 2015 at 9:35 pm

    I LOVE the Contessa – 1516226 – it will be perfect for our front hall! Thanks for being our go-to gal for interior design inspiration!

  161. Stephanie

    September 27th, 2015 at 9:52 pm

    So many options! We’re remodeling our house as well right now, I would love to have some globe pendants over our kitchen bar:
