This past week I’ve been talking with Greg about putting a light at the top of our stairwell—A few things have to happen before we can actually do this like maybe taking down the ceiling. He was totally against the idea of hanging a ceiling lamp and thought we should do sconces on the walls instead.
In the Rosebrook bar at the Mt. Washington hotel I looked up to find exactly the light I was trying to explain: the bell jar lantern. He really likes the style and how the glass reflects rings onto the ceiling. I’ve spotted a few similar versions at Pottery Barn, Circa Lighting, and Shades of Light but I’ll have to keep looking because it can’t be too big or long. Below a few more pieces from the hotel that we found inspiring.
