Swing from the Chandelier

8 Feb

Hello Glamourites,

In regards to design I find that my own style is constantly changing, more accurately it’s probably forever evolving. I also think that this could be dependant on my mood, as to which colours or emotion I want to portray in a space. This can be hard if you’re constantly trying to change rooms in your home to match your current style. There are several ways you can do this without tearing apart the entire room or bringing walls down, it can range depending on your budget as well. One solution to this is updating your light fixtures, more specifically the chandelier. I believe chandeliers are a large statement piece in a room and are a great addition to any room no matter the style or size. Most people will associate chandeliers with the classic ballroom type with oversized crystals and a radius too obnoxious for any normal size room. However this is definitely not the only chandelier available anymore, there are thousands of designs and styles to fit everyones needs and character. Take a look at some of the inspiration pictures I found and perhaps you will soon be upgrading your dinning room lighting!

Something like this was probably what came to mind when you thought chandelier… I like this fixture in this space because it is mixing glamourous and rustic together with the worn wooden table. Because the table it very large and heavy it balances out and allows for a large light fixture above.  chandelier2

Here is a much more modern take on chandelier, it is eye catching with the use of scattered glass ovals playing with depth and height.

This fixture has the typical structure of a stereotypical chandelier however it is simplified, only using the steams to create the shape and no extra hanging accessories.

If you are looking for something extra unique this could be the solution for you. It can be a great DIY project as well, take wine bottles or mason jars and put the bulb inside the bottle then attach it to a board or a something to support the fixtures to the ceiling.

When you have a space with high ceilings you can get away with any size of chandelier like this baroque inspired piece.

Another simple DIY chandelier for over a four seat kitchen table or reading nook.
