Our Tahiti Breeze fan is up and working! This might be a good time to admit that I have a bit of a theme going (in my mind, at least) for our house. The problem is, I don't like the idea of a theme because of how easily it can turn into kitschy knick-knacks and tchotchkes. Perhaps what I should say is that I'm hoping to evoke a sense of tropical calm, without resorting to little palm tree statues. To be honest, the fan itself is a little close for comfort in terms of a theme, but we found it on sale and I do like the way it looks.
And we made the blinds work!
