Remember the show, Trading Spaces -- one of the first decorating shows to draw in a fan base --- I mean viewers NOT ceiling fans. They ripped out ceiling fans quicker than they could throw paint on a wall. I always shuttered for the poor home owners that would tag their fan as "off limits", only to find it gone on the great reveal.
So when we bought the farm in 2006 --- I almost felt we were breaking a decorating taboo to install not just one ceiling fan -- but SEVEN ceiling fans! I finally had the high ceilings to support these beauties.....not to mention no air conditioning. These guys were essential! And they were a first for me!
So, now Summer means Ceiling Fans! And, we ADORE them...absolutely, positively. "Do not take down my ceiling fans -- Or Else!" reads my 7 notes!
What is a porch without a gentle breeze?
And, I love love love the swirly energy efficient bulbs sneaking out from the end of a sweet fan shade.
Adds a touch of modern to charming.
So -- would you let Paige & Company tear out your ceiling fans?
Who even remembers Paige & Company of Trading Spaces fame?
