That new fan is beautiful! I'm usually too chicken to order from J&M b/c it's all sales final…and that's kind of scary. Looks like it worked out for y'all!
That really is a great ceiling fan for the space. We just moved into a home with flimsy plastic covers on all the lights. First project: Ceiling fans!
Looks great. I'm in the process of picking a new ceiling fan for our kitchen. It's proving to be quite the process. *sigh* A DIY-er's life is never easy.
We took our ceiling fan out of our bedroom and for the life of me I don't know why. I miss it on these warm/hot summer nights. By the way, I saw another bloggers posting about your awesome studio space and loved it so much I included it in my Studio Sunday blog post at: mamapicturethis.blogspot.com. My space is hideous… maybe someday it can aspire to be as lovely as yours!
Gorgeous! It's amazing what big impact small changes have. Even the carpet looks lighter!
Where are those floor lamps behind the soda from?
Love the redo!

Beautiful! I love how the lighter colors make the whole space seem bigger.
I love the new ceiling fan. We have the same ugly one that you had for so many years. I can't wait to replace ours! I showed my husband the picture of your new ceiling fan to light a fire under him…. :o)
looooove! it. what a difference one little fixture makes. And you made me feel way less alone as I continue to ignore my master bedroom (I will get to it one day, I swear!…8 years later and counting!)

Your "room" convo made me LOL! 😀 Great "after"!!
I live in Texas and ceiling fans are a must. I also feel that they stick out up there on the white ceiling. I'll have to check out this style because it does have a more subtle look.

I love it! I have been struggling with what ceiling fan to get in our living room, I am going to check out Joss and Main right now!
wow, love your new ceiling fan.
It seems that every time I see a decorating show, the decorator always wants to take fans down. Don't think so, not in our climate.
Very dry and pretty blasted hot here so our fans make such a difference. We have a swamp cooler not an a/c. We usually turn off the cooler in evening when it cools off, just have fans going and they are life savers.
Nobody ever said installing a ceiling fan was quick or fun/easy. Since we've moved a bit from one part of country to next we've installed several ceiling fans. They have gotten better looking and the light kits more attractive.
One of first things we did on our KY house was take some pretty ugly fans down. We have fans we changed out in our house now in western CO. If I have to look at those things I want them to be decent at least.
We had to put ceiling fans in several of our rooms in our house in Mt, there wasn't any other cooling available. Don't need it there too much as we lived out on 20 acres and had lake breeze to help cool things off.
I'm really envious of your new fan, really modern and very snazzy looking. Enjoy your new fan and your lovely home.
No things are never permanent when decorating as we continue to grow and change our ideas. That's actually a good thing, to grow and change ideas, now the expense of changing things in our homes isn't always great but if we do most of work ourselves then it's ok isn't it? Happy life
You have such a beautiful home! Love the after pictures =)
Love the fan, Shelley, but love your living room even more. This might seem like a silly question but could you tell me how tall your ceilings are as well as the wainscoting? We have super-tall ceilings in our new (to us) living room and I'm trying to create a cohesive design that won't break the bank and works with the scale of the room, furniture and walls.

Hi Shelley, Your new fan looks gorgeous. And I love the "before" & "after" of this room. Wow. What a fun difference. I've enjoyed catching up on your blog & your Studio 5 segments I've missed lately. Thanks for being a constant source of inspiration.
