One very lucky Mommy Living The Life of Riley! will definitely be living the life when they win their choice of fan courtesy of Fanimation!
All of their fans are STUNNING! They have a variety of styles and finishes to suit everyone's tastes. My taste is more traditional (warm wood tones, darker metal finishes) It was tough narrowing down my selection, but I think I'm sticking with the one I fell in love with on the first day I saw the giveaway posted.
I'd pick model LB230VZ venetian bronze fan assembly with Cairo purple finish custom wood blades and dual amber glass bowl light kit. *sigh* Isn't it gorgeous?
I love the elongated oval shape of the blades, and the amber light with all the dark bronze metal. This would look stunning in my living room (and the best part, I'd actually have an overhead light in there! I can't believe they installed a ceiling fan without a light kit.)
My living room is very large, so the 56" sweep would be in keeping with the scale of the room. The tone of the Cairo wood blades would also be in balance with the other wood tones in the room. I also love that in addition to 3 forward speeds it also has 3 reverse speeds - most ceiling fans I've seen only have 1 reverse speed (and it's never fast enough!). I actually do use our ceiling fan in the winter (in reverse) so this feature is important to me.
I'd take the fan that's currently in the living room and put that in my son's bedroom, since it's a perfectly good ceiling fan and he can use it.
