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.

Party Touchdown

23 Jan

Hello Glamourites,

I will be the first to admit that I am not the biggest football fan, not even a mediocre one but I will take any excuse to throw a party! Having a get together can be as easy as putting some chips and dip out or pulling out the fancy china…I’d say no fine china for the Superbowl Feb 1st… I found some fun decor ideas and snacks that are easy to throw together and will add that extra excitement on the big game day! Remember to start prepping now, it’ll make for no stress on the actual day and a greater chance of everything going smoothly.

Make these delicious chocolate cupcakes by using an pastry bag with a thin tip to draw the white lines, these desserts are winning!sperbowl4

An easy and DIY project is taking mason jars and adding white duck tape to the side for a perfect game day glass of soda….or beer! superbowl

Transform your table in minutes with green construction paper (or any green material) and white duck tape to make the yard lines. SONY DSC

Drag that old chalkboard from the basement and add it to the table for display, write your winning team or fun motto like “ready, set, eat”!

Make grilled cheese sandwiches with rye bread for the dark colouring and little mayonnaise for the white lines. You can never go wrong with this classic sandwich, it’s a score all round!

And finally, something as simple as making a funny joke with buying yellow napkins with a sign for “penalty flags”.superbowl6
