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.

Let the Vitamin D in!

8 May

Hi Glamourites!

The weather the past few days has been absolutely beautiful and all I wanted to do was be outside enjoying the sunshine! If you are stuck inside doing work but you still want to enjoy those sunny days….the answer, windows!! I could not live in a house that doesn’t have any windows {or few of them}. I love to have natural light at all times and a beautiful view doesn’t hurt either. Here are some homes where they have incorporated lots of windows perfectly into the design.

In the bathroom it is incredibly important to have natural light for applying makeup. Often we will put on too much foundation or bronzer because we don’t have the correct lighting and when you leave the house it turns out you look like a cake!

Sometimes cooking dinner can be a pain but when you have skylights or big windows to fill your kitchen with vitamin D it makes the job much more enjoyable!

Okay I know you don’t want the sunrise waking you up at 5:30 in the morning which is why they invented curtains…but windows in the bedroom can be amazing and create a special place for you to wake up. Imagine how peaceful this setting would be as you great ready for bed or just want some quiet time to yourself?

Of course windows anywhere in the house work perfectly, especially where you will be entertaining guests. It’s a great way to show off your home and where you live!
