Satellite Entryway Light!

This giveaway is no longer accepting entries. Congrats to Jen (entry #1650) and a huge thank you to Schoolhouse Electric for hosting!

It’s official. We have light!

Way back when we gave you the first tour of the house, you might have noticed that the majority of our ceiling fixtures were chandeliers – all of the same glass variety. Those will ultimately go, and while there are still a few of them hanging around (literally, ha!), some of them were replaced with inexpensive flush mounts until we can swap them with something better suited to our tastes.

But now? We have our first chosen light fixture hanging in our entryway! The very generous, very sweet and very amazing folks at Schoolhouse Electric knew we were (scratch that – still are) in the process of transforming our almost-130-year-old house back to its former glory, and they kindly offered to help with a fixture of our choice. Hold. The. Phone. Yes!

Schoolhouse was on our must-visit-list when we traveled to Portland not too long ago, so we were thrilled and beyond grateful that they wanted to partner up. Considering their shop is bookmarked in our browser toolbar, we had a long list of loves, but in the end, Scott and I eagerly decided on the Satellite 6 pendant in the natural brass finish for our entryway (now just imagine that those tall baseboards have been installed, too!):

Lighting is obviously a transformative element to any room (this is no secret), and that brass finish is a game changer. Well, no, it is, actually, solid brass (no veneer here!). From bulb to bulb, the fixture is 19″ wide, and we chose a 13″ drop for the stem for two reasons: ONE) Anything too low would look a little funny as you come down the stairs, and TWO) from the sidewalk, it’s framed perfectly within our transom window. Truly, it’s beautiful, and we couldn’t be happier.

The kicker? Our Schoolhouse browsing spree had us eyeing more than a few items for later on down the road. Bedding? Furniture? Office supplies and kitchenware? Until we visited their brick and mortar store in Portland, we had always thought of Schoolhouse for lighting eye candy (which we all know to be true!), but they kind of have the whole house thing covered:

Some of our favorites, seen above: waxed canvas utility bag, Aiden candlesticks, buffalo plaid throw, steel utility stools, matte gold serving utensils, and Ion table & desk lamp. We urge you to get lost in their whole shop; go, go!

As if we couldn’t love (love, love) these guys enough, they not only offered us a little treat, but they said, naturally, let’s team up with a reader, too! (I mean, of course!) And so together with Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co., we’ll be giving away $200 towards anything in their store! Using the Rafflecopter widget below, enter as many ways as you’d like. The giveaway is eligible for anyone in the world and runs through this Friday, February 21st until 5pm CST, and the winner will be announced within this post. Good luck and happy entering!

This post is in partnership with Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co. We were gifted the Satellite 6 pendant light in natural brass with G40 clear bulbs (these bulbs are huge!). Opinions and lighting love are all ours.

  • Amanda2.20.14 - 6:03 PM

    Love the light fixture! Love the giveaway but I do not love the fact that I have to like places and things in order to get all the votes! I recommend going with giveaways the way Young House Love does with just one “vote”. Easy peasy & everyone has a fair chance! (I have 3 – because I love YBH & everything with you – out of 5 but I’d prefer not to have to like something just to get more votes) Sorry for the rant, just my opinion and I’m sure many others as well.ReplyCancel

    • Kim2.20.14 - 8:53 PM

      Hi Amanda, that’s totally a valid and fair point! Thank you so much for your feedback. A lot of times, our sponsors support us with something that we would love to have in our own home, and they ask in return that our readers share the love with them, too. I can definitely see both sides, so this is something to consider for the future. (And PS… we love having you as a reader too! You’ve been around with us for a long time, and it doesn’t go unnoticed!)ReplyCancel

    I love my 1960’s ranch house but it definitely has some miserable shoestring budget rental grade flush mount lighting going on. I’d love to one day install recessed lighting in some of the rooms, but others are dying for a bit more flair like Schoolhouse’ products.ReplyCancel

    I’ve just discovered your blog from the BHG blogger awards and I’m hooked. I’ve started reading from the beginning (I’m about half way through now) and I’m already trying to think of ways to convince my partner to let me put more colour on the walls, and finally hang up some art like we’ve been meaning to do for ages (although finding a spot amongst all our sloping a-frame walls makes it a little difficult!) Your website is definitely an inspiration and a new must read. Glad I found you! :)ReplyCancel

    • Kim2.21.14 - 8:46 AM
