Light Fixture

I want to put up a new lighting fixture in my bathroom. I have tile from the floor 4'2" up the wall and then have 3'21/2" of wall to the ceiling. My vanity is 22" wide. My question is how far down the wall from the ceiling should the lighting fixure be? I will also have a mirror below the fixure. Any thoughts?

I used to rough them at 6'8" AFF.

DS, Would that be for an eight foot wall then?
I agree with that number, but you can place the fixture at a level that allows everything to fall into place, work well and looks good. No set NEC coding in this aspect of an instillation that I can think of.
