I posed the question on my blog’s Facebook page one day about whether you liked a ceiling fan or a regular light fixture better. I was getting ready to take down our ceiling fan in the family room and replace it with a gorgeous Pottery Barn light I got on sale. I learned very quickly that y’all LOVE your ceiling fans! And after visiting Florida this past fall with The Home Depot Foundation, I TOTALLY understand. Holy humidity! Our Utah dry heat has nothin’ on your Southern humidity.
(After working outside in high humidity….. Can you say one hot mess?)
I wanted a new look to go with my new room so I had no problem taking our ceiling fan down. My husband on the other hand….. was not so sure. Even though we have central air that is excellent at keep our house comfortable I do understand there are times when it is not hot enough to warrant having it run and it is nice to have a fan. They are more energy efficient as well. And if you can get away with just the fan, it is better.
So for that reason, and to appease my hubby, I started to look around for other options. I wanted whatever we got to replace the ceiling fan to be pretty and not an eye sore. I thought maybe I could get a vintage one.When I googled “vintage floor fan” I found antique ones and most didn’t work any more. Not only that, but they were PRICEY! I googled just “floor fan” and I saw this beauty and I knew I had to have it! It has that vintage feel but it is new.
It is called the Sutter 16″ floor standing fan. I found it on a website called Lamps Plus. They actually have a ton of different styles. This one was the perfect color and style for my cute 1938 home :)
I contacted LampsPlus.com and they were kind enough to send it to me. I love how it looks like a part of the decor AND is functional.
My husband is happy, and I am happy. And my kids are praying it warms up soon so we can test it out :) But with single digit temperatures I don’t think we will need it for a while!
