We have finally fitted the lights in our living area after 5 months of bare wires poking through the ceiling. Three ceiling pendants that we agreed on and within budget were proving a tricky and expensive problem, so I finally managed to find some cheap coloured glass pendants that we both liked.
I love coloured glass - we have stained glass panels on our internal and external doors, and I have pretty votive candle holders on the mantle piece that sparkle like boiled sweets with tea lights in them, so I was quite chuffed to find these in the BHS sale.
The catch has been not fitting them on naff white plastic rose and cables but spending a little more on chrome fittings on-line. These also have the advantage of having longer, adjustable cables that can be fitted lower as we have over our dining table. These were from Ryness.
