We're now preparing the preliminary schedule of fixtures and fittings. I have everything pretty much sorted - everything except for light fittings. I really love pendants, and we're lucky that we've got high ceilings, so I think they'll look fantastic.
I really like these George Nelson pendants (who doesn't?)
Basic white, beautiful shapes, delicious - perhaps in the dining room or hanging beside the bed in lieu of a bedside lamp, such as this example:

But I also like the black Moooi Non-Random (which is also available in white.)
Or there is also the option of traditional pendants, which I think would suit the rooms located in the existing cottage. Here are some photos of Stuart Vokes' place (from the acclaimed Owen and Vokes) where he has used simple, traditional lighting. I love the fine detailing in his house: they certainly don't make them liked they used to.
