So I’m in the midst of a little hardware conundrum. I’ve been on the hunt for black lighting fixtures and black hardware for a remodel project I’m designing, and I keep striking out in my search. I have my heart set on finding black schoolhouse pendants, but I can only find them with an oiled bronze or satin nickel finish. I’ve chosen bright white cabinetry and a cool grey wall color, and I just can’t reconcile using oiled bronze hardware with this combination. I love oiled bronze, but personally I feel it’s a better fit for a warm, rustic feel and a perfect match with antique whites and wooden accents. For my current project I think I’ll have to go with my 2nd best choice– satin nickel, but here is my vision for oiled bronze at its finest to keep in mind for future projects.
