Make My Heart Flutter Lighting Options
I realize it may put me in the "you are slightly odd" category, but I was so happy to watch a hole being cut in my living room ceiling yesterday! There was a bit of uncertainty as to whether adding a junction box would be possible, with minimal access to extend the wiring. So watching the electrician be successful was a reason to celebrate.
And now, with the wiring in place, what chandelier should be hung in this room? Here are some gorgeous options to consider...
From Currey & Company, the Simplicity Chandelier in Washed Wood is near perfection with wooden beads that are just so pretty!
Found at Horchow, the Shell Pendant Light is both a modern and organic choice. Here sliced seashells are handcrafted to resemble flowers.
At Shades of Light, the Riveria Iron Lantern strikes a beautiful balance between the masculine and feminine.
Offered at Circa Lighting, the Marigot Six Light Chandelier is stunning in antique brass with delicate seeded glass beads. How very Feminine.
Spotted recently at Crate & Barrel, the Norwood Six-Arm Chandelier is a pared down and strong version of the Simplicity Chandelier.
Discovered at Lux Lighting in Portland, the Skygarden fixture by Flos leaves me with no words. Well, except to say...designer Marcel Wanders found his inspiration for this light from the antique decorated plaster ceiling in his home in the Netherlands. What a stunning blend of old and new. Period. I want it...
Putting aside the little issue of money for a moment...which light fixture would you select for this room?
