Help with mudroom/powder room light fixtures

We are in the final stages of renovating a bathroom and the powder room/mudroom space below, and the electrician is screaming for the light fixtures. I have not ordered them yet, because I am running out of steam, having made way too many decisions in the last couple of months. I am hoping that some of you can help me over this last hurdle.

I agonized over the layout of the mudroom space here before; we ended up going with something very close to rsc2a's suggested layout:

The powder room is 30" wide and 7.5 inches long, with one window in the middle of the long wall, and the door opposite. In one end is the toilet, a white Toto Promenade (classic style). In the other end will be a Cabico vanity (white painted finish, simple paneled doors) with a Lagos Azul counter (brown limestone). The floor in the entire space is a great brown/grey 12 x 12 ceramic tile that I found at Home Depot; it looks like slate. The Lagos Azul is a great match for it. I bought some peach paint for the whole space (powder room and mudroom) - BM Gerbera Daisy. I need a small ceiling fixture for the powder room and an over-mirror fixture (and I need a mirror, too). I also need a larger ceiling fixture for the mudroom space (about 8' x 7.5', with some built-in white cabinetry and benches/cubbies). For some reason, I am leaning toward bronze finishes. But I am not sure that I should go this way - maybe I should stick to polished nickel?

First of all, I am in love with this mirror. I know that if I order it, it will look awful and I'll be sorry. I am sure that it does not go with the classic lines of the vanity and toilet. Please talk me down:

I know that I need a simple, rectangular mirror of some sort.

I also like this light fixture for the powder room (I know that it does not go with the oval mirror, but I think it would go with the vanity):

For the ceiling fixtures, I am sure I need flushmounts, because the ceilings are only 8' high. I am thinking of simple round bronze rings with white or alabaster glass domes. Any suggestions?

My house is a 1931 center hall, slate-roof Colonial.
