Finishing touches aren’t always high on our shopping agenda. Realistically when we’re not even at the stage of thinking about paint colours yet, it doesn’t make sense to fill our home with all the beautiful items I keep spying online. Sometimes though we both see something that is so perfect it’s a no-brainer and this happened recently when we found the perfect pendant lampshade for our hallway.
Living in a 1930’s semi-detached house means that we have a reasonably sized hall, more than just an entry porch or dumping ground for coats and shoes. It’s a space I’ve been working hard at to make it feel welcoming and although we still have to decorate, put in a new floor and runner on the stairs and finish the staircase project, its got so much potential and will look great when finished.
We were up in town a couple of months ago and popped into Heal’s department store which is an interiors-lover mecca. We saw a stunning copper pendant lampshade from their Cohen collection and at that point I wasn’t really sure where it would go but I knew I’d find somewhere for it. For me the best feature about it was the matching copper-coloured ceiling rose which just smacks of quality and really sets the whole piece off.
Ordering it online to take advantage of a little discount, Pete installed it in our hallway a few weeks ago and it looks so beautiful. It comes with a lot of flex so could be used to hang low over a dining table and also has three sizes so you can pick the one most appropriate for your home. We opted for medium to make a bit of a statement but large would definitely have been too big. The medium cost £149 and I picked it up in store to save on delivery cost. Now we just need to get the rest of the hallway up to scratch…

Thank you lovely, we’re so pleased with how it’s very slowly coming together Xx
Ohh I love it against the dark wood on the banister and the hallway furniture, does it give off a nice warm light?
It looks absolutely beautiful when it’s on, there’s a cutaway pattern at the top of the lampshade which casts beautiful shawdows on the ceiling X
Oh i love it, I have been adding a couple of copper touches in our hallway and this would look fab. At the moment I just have a cheapy copper shade, which looks okay but yours is beautiful. #homeetc
Copper is my absolute fave at the moment, with a little bit of gold creeping in 😉 X
Aaah it’s a BEAUTY!!! I’m always so envious when I see pendant lights in people homes these days! Our cottage ceilings are too low in most of the rooms. LOVE this — the copper looks fantastic! 🙂 xx #HomeEtc
