Very good friend has just bought house in stressful circumstances and has had to go away before making various decisions. She is a dear friend, and we love her very much and want to help all we can so DH is talking to builders and electricians to get things done for her return.
He wants me to chose a lamp to go outside her front door so the electrician can get on with the work and I can't decide. In one sense it doesn't matter because I know she will be grateful for whatever we choose but I would love to get it right for her, and not have her hate it and wish she could change it.
It is a little terraced cottagey house - Victorian, I would guess - brick, with white lintels and a dark blue front door with brass letterbox and knocker. She is a John Lewis sort of person but I can't find anything quite right on their website.
So, brass, white or black? Hanging or upright? Simple or more ornate? Help!!!
I think by the side of the door. There is nothing to hang a light on over the door except the flat white lintel which I think would look odd. Will check that site, thank you.
I guess the closest on the JL site would be maybe this or this although I don't really like either. I have wondered about this but am now in such an agony of indecision that I don't know what I like anymore, let alone what she would like!
