(no this is not a joke, I'm trying to rid myself of relationship talk for a brief second, and since it's been bloody hot I want a ceiling fan) House wall/ceiling color is off-white, trim is white, carpet is beige. Nothing in the house adds much color, I want to get atleast one ceiling fan, the most obvious choice is white, but it would look kinda bla I think. I thought brushed nickel would look better, so I bought a fan last night and installed it, the blades were reversable, either black or a white-washed wood look, I put the white-washed side down. Fan looks pretty good by itself, but there is nothing else nickel in that room or the entire house. Door handles are shinny brass, but all of the brass ceiling fans look really cheesy to me, very gawdy...I was thinking of getting a darker color, like black or dark brown, or maybe antique brass, but once again there is nothing else in the house antique brass... I'm thinking of taking it back and getting the white one afterall, I don't want it to look wierd, I was just hoping something other than white would work, so it would give the house some color. I need probably 3 of these fans, all for different rooms, they ofcourse don't have to all be the same color or style, but I like this style and they aren't overly expensive ($79 for the one I got with the 4-light-kit). So would a brushed nickel fan look really odd in a mostly white/beige room? With the black trimmed blades and the nickel it looks sharp, but just doesn't really 'go' with anything else... Ideas?
