    Hello Kristen,

    Either would work, but more important you need colour, if not the wall then the Lampshades (Tiffany Glass maybe)?

  • I like the round ones the best, as for colour either.

    The round ones go better with the shape of the mirror, which has curves rather than angles.

    Either would work, it likely depends upon what fixtures you find that you like. Mixed metals are in style, so don't be tied to one color or another.

  • I would choose the first fixture that has a edison bulb shape. The shape of the bulbs work because they are longer and have a curved shape, similar to the lines of the mirror.

    I like the design of #1 lighting with that mirror. I like the oval bulbs better with the curves of the mirror. The shades give a nice contrast to the oval. As far as the finish....my favorite is champagne. It's a nice soft blend of nickel and brass. But the finish will depend on the colors and decor you have in the bathroom.

    I like the aged brass best. In the bathroom i find exposed bulbs give a really harsh light for makeup application etc. I’d go with something frosted. :) Love that mirror!

    Can't say I'm fond of any of them. How close is the opening in the wall to the top of the mirror? I think that's what's bothering me. And, how large is the room? You've got to consider just more than these two pieces when making a judgment. If the room works with the colors and is large enough to handle the mirror and 2 bulb fixture and you can't find anything else in your budget that isn't more rounded at the base, then I'd go with the 5th entry with the smallest square base and the fluted 'shades'.

      After seeing your faucet picture, i would buy a new black faucet and black finish light fixture (same style as what you were debating) to use with the champagne mirror. Black would work nicely with the black flecks in the countertop and it's classic.

    I think a brushed nickel fixture matches mirror better than brass.

    If you are sure you want to keep the mirror, then go with brushed nickel.

  • Baxter Baxter on Jul 15, 2020

    I would match the light fixture finish to your faucets. The champagne finish on the mirror will work with either, but your faucets should match the light fixture. I also think the globes on any of those lights will look fine with the mirror. The mirror is transitional and will be at home in any style setting, so choose the globe shape you like best. Good luck!

      Thx. I had the faucet before I got the mirror and I feel like the faucet doesn’t look so good And it may need to be replaced.

    Brushed nickel.

  • Morgan McBride Morgan McBride on Jul 15, 2020

    Either one works, if you do brass, make sure to have something else brass in the room so it looks intentional
