We love to entertain, so our dining room is a very important room for us. When we moved into the house, we had this horrible light fixture that did not go with our theme of the house.  Once we added in a buffet and a big table, the light fixture wasn’t centered over the table.  This was a big problem as guests would bump their heads on the light fixture when they would stand up from their seat.  Therefore, we had to find an electrician to change out the light fixture.

Dining Room When We Moved In

First, I had to find a light fixture I liked.  I found an amazing drum light fixture from Restoration Hardware.  I did not want a fancy chandelier as that is not the style of our home.  Once the light fixture was hung, it completely transformed the room!  It is an amazing space that we are truly happy with.
