I've been trying to find pendant lights I like for a while and had been hell-bent on getting some aqua coloured ones for the living room. (I posted a picture on Facebook last night - thanks to everyone who gave wonderful suggestions!)
HOWEVER, when I took into account the yellow and green coloured glass in the sliding windows in the room (you can just see them in the third photo down here), I decided the lights really had to be neutral.
I ended up buying four large charcoal coloured pendant lights (the ones on the right here - they look black in this photo but aren't) and three smaller cream coloured ones for the kitchen.
I guess I had windows on the mind, because I came home and started to look on Gumtree for some pretty leadlight windows for the 'garden bar' (that dilapidated little structure on our property that we've decided should become an outdoor bar...but that's a post for another day) and I saw these.
And it was love.
Lu and I went and picked them up this afternoon and brought them home. They need repainting but the timber and putty is in good condition, which is more than can be said for most of the old windows in our place.
They're way too big for the garden bar, but they'll be perfect for the bathroom. The idea is that they'll be installed above the bathtub, so you can either open them and gaze out at the view or just lie in your very own pretty rainbow...
