What do you think of the ceiling fans?
I read an article about design mistakes and a designer said that he considers ceiling fans a design mistake. I disagree. Ceiling fans have come a long way! He thinks that homes should be designed properly for the right air flow so you do not need a ceiling fan. In a perfect world that *might* be possible. But all homes are not created equal and sometimes it is necessary for a ceiling fan or at least a portable fan.
I shared some of my favorite fans and also other favorite things from the past week!
I love this white kitchen it looks retro but also modern with gold accents. Here is an example of a fan done well! We actually don’t have central air in our home. It was built in 1950’s and it would be a lot of money to convert to central air. This is about the time of year we bring out the window units. I HATE how they look. Last week it got up to 90 degrees here in CT and we managed without the window units. Granted we do have one window unit in our master bedroom that is hidden behind curtains when the fan is not being used. It cools our main floor pretty well. The one room that tends to get hot is the kitchen. So I am trying to decide what to do in there. I really don’t want to put the window unit in. So I set up a portable fan on the counter and hopefully it does the trick! (wish me luck!)
In Finns nursery and the front room we just use portable fans and we really rarely have to use those.
It does get really hot upstairs. We just added two modern ceiling fans up there and I am hoping that they keep it cool and we can avoid installing the window units (I will share them next week). Below are some of my favorite ceiling fans and portable fans-
#1- Ceiling Fan White HERE // #2- Ceiling Fan Modern HERE // #3- Ceiling Fan Black & Gold HERE / #4- Ceiling Fan Mint HERE (also available in black) // #5- Ceiling Fan Black and Gold HERE // #6- Silver Portable Fan HERE // #7- Cream Portable Fan HERE // #8- Blue Fan HERE // #9- Portable Copper Fan HERE // #10- Standing Fan HERE
What do you think of those fans? Stylish and modern don’t you think? Now moving onto the rest of my favorite things…
- I loved the above exterior that I spotted on Instagram from Caitlin Creer. This might be one of my favorite exteriors ever. Love the front door and dark accents.
- Spotted this girls bathroom reveal this week HERE. The herringbone floor is so gorgeous and timeless. Also the light above the mirror is such a great idea! I am a stool hoarder, she said she found that one at Home Goods.
- I think I might be lazy- actually I take that back I know I am not a lazy person. But why do I look at sandals and think, I don’t want to even bend over and do up a strap or a buckle? Is that normal? So when I saw THESE shoes I knew they were for me. I am so in love with them. They can be casual or formal. I ordered them in the nude color.
- Also speaking of summer and sandals. I live in knee length skirts in the summer. They are my summer must-have. I just got THIS skirt because #pockets!!! And THIS one because it is basically lounge wear in a skirt.
