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.

Eat Here!

7 Oct

Hello Glamourites,

Been a busy and fun-filled weekend for me topped with LOTS of eating. Food has got to be one of my favourite things in this world, I really wish I could eat all day and not gain weight haha I know, not possible. All this got me thinking about kitchens, this is where all the food prep happens, eating and when parties are happening people always seem to gather in the kitchen. It’s a central area and always seems to be where the hub of the home is. Here are some differently styles of kitchens that got me thinking about my dream kitchen xx Glamour Planner

This space has a fun combination of vintage hardware with modern pop of colour.kitchenmint

Countertop is always key for a successful kitchen, you need lots of space to be able to spread out. kitchenclassic

A very classic feel from this kitchen with the arched ceiling feature, moulding detail around the stove and island with the bronze taps.

For a more unique kitchen this space adds pop art, retro title and simple lines. kitchenpop

Stepping into this kitchen would feel like taking a step into the past, this space is rich in stone, wood and marble. kitchenrustic

The Climb

12 Aug

Good morning Glamourites,

It’s easy to become accustomed to the everyday things in life and soon we stop noticing their beauty. A good example of this would be stairs; a necessary object that helps us in most day to day activities to get to places. Here are some fabulous staircases that I think deserve to have some sincere recognition. Notice the detailing and thought behind the creation of these amazing stairs.

The ever-so-classical spiral staircase; always so enchanting to look up and see the winding stairs.
