Ceiling Fans vs Pendant Lights

So yeah...I'm trying to figure out what to put in our master bedroom.  Lighting.  We have the paint, we've decided on the molding, we're putting bead-board on the ceiling, we have plans for our built-ins...everything is working...except lighting.

I don't necessarily like the look of ceiling fans.  Never had.  BUT!  Our house doesn't have central air and in the summer.....yeah, ceiling fans are a BIG help.  They really help make our 80+ degree house stay cool at night so we can actually sleep.

However...pendant lights are so much better!  They're so cool!  I love the added character they bring into a room.  Basically, I just love them.

So here's my question.  Ceiling fan or pendant light?  What's your preferance?

I say go with function. Get a fan. But make sure it's a pretty one and then get some pretty table lamps to add some excitement.

I don't really like the look of fans either, but living in AZ we need all the help we can to cool down. So we splurged and got a really cool looking ceiling fan that I love and it really does help us sleep better at night. Sometimes function outweighs design.
