Apparently, I’ve traded in my paint brush and power tools for a virtual shopping cart these past two weeks as I’ve been eyeing light fixtures and curtains and furnishings to visualize the new house. (Here’s the post with the news about our move, if you missed it.)
You think the online shopping fairy can just drop off all of those things at our doorstep? That’d be great.
One thing about the new place that I have to keep in mind though is that we’re dealing with 8 foot tall ceilings, not the 9 footers that we grew so used to in our old house. So that means flush mount and semi-flush mount lighting is very much on my radar.
(In a perfect world, chandeliers would work in every room.) It’s hard finding flush mounts that are pretty but still functional for shorter ceilings, and, as always, I didn’t want them to break the bank.
So I’ve rounded up some of my favorite vintage inspired flush mount lights for under $150 in case you’ve needed some direction with new lighting in your house too. They’re all so different but all are gorgeous!

Do you have a favorite? Since the new-to-us house is an old brick Colonial with a formal feel, I’m sure I’ll be going less industrial and more polished with classic style fixtures. I’ve never really gone the glam route before, but those crystal light fixtures are calling my name!
