Lighting for foyer and hallway
December 26, 2012 in Design Dilemma
I am planning on replacing the lighting in my entry and hallway. I have a long hallway open to the living room that runs the length of the first floor. It has three recessed lights that I am planning on converting to pendants (see 1st photo). I am leaning toward bronze lantern-style lighting that would coordinate with the chandelier in the living room (see 2nd photo). How large should they be and how low should they hang? I want visual impact so I don't want to go too small. Ceilings are 9 ft high and 46" wide in hallway. In addition I want to replace the outdated chandelier in entryway (see 3rd photo) and would like suggestions for size and style. The entryway faces the living room and is vaulted with a catwalk upstairs dividing entry and living room. Entry fixture needs to complement chandelier in living room (close-up in 4th photo) and fixtures I add down hallway. Entry ceiling is 18 ft high and fixture will hang in front of a window above front door that is 6 ft x 6 ft. As you can see I have a traditional home with lots of moldings and windows. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

What about something that would mimic the arch of your ceiling? Urban Electric sells beautiful fixtures in a variety of scale. This one might have real visual impact for the long hallway and it comes in brass: http://www.urbanelectricco.com/#/Collection/By_Category/Ceiling/Dover_Ball/

Missing your other photos, but would suggest semi-flush drums in the hall and a hanging drum in the living area. What is the metal of the sconces in the living room. Will they remain or change?

Here is a photo of one version of the Dover Ball. However, it comes in a softer globe (white) and other metals. Check out the photo gallery. I have a couple of lights from UE and they are beautiful.
