Lighting ideas for the bathroom.

I’ve been trying to find examples of lights that people have used in older style bathrooms.  I really like the idea of using another pendant light similar to the one in the hall  but I’m worried that the rod will go rusty.

Below is the only image I’ve been able to find so far, of a pendant light on a rod has been used in a bathroom.

This light (on the left) is hanging in the stairwell at my parents house.  I like this idea it but I’m wondering if this style is too modern for this particular bathroom.  Will this look date quickly too?

The idea of having two wall lights either side of the basin seems to be popular.  I just don’t know.  Help!!

Mean while we’ve been working away at the ceiling and walls of the bathroom.  There is still so much to do before the fun stuff starts like painting the walls and laying the floor tiles.  I’ve spent most of the day scraping and sanding the bathroom window and I broke one of the panes!!! sooo annoying!!!

Mr F has been working hard to undercoat and paint the bathroom door.  His sister is coming  from New Zealand to stay with us for a week (arriving tomorrow) and we’re sure she’d prefer a door rather than the sheet we’ve been using.
