Chandeliers

Incorporating chandeliers in an interior is so much fun!  It is amazing how they can transform a simple room into one with style.  The chandelier can set the tone for the room, whether it be glamourous, modern or eclectic, urban and rustic...depending on the look you are going for.  When we first walk into a room, the chandelier is the first thing we look at.  The expected room to use a chandelier would be the dining room or a foyer, but the unexpected use of a chandelier is when it is found in a bedroom or bathroom.  We love both uses, but the unexpected can be more fun!

Thanks for the post. I just bought a new lighting fixture for our office, sort of a chandelier (It's that one from IKEA that looks kind of like and upside-down basket), and I was wondering how it would look, so maybe it will be the good unexpected that you mentioned.

Oh I adore chandeliers--can be so fun and so elegant. I think I like them best when they are unexpectedly places. Happy 2010!

LOVE the post. I have a real "think" for chandeliers. Especially in the bath. Or the kitchen. Really anywhere, but especially when it's unexpected. Thank you for sharing!!
