rediscover the chandelier

This one is inspired by my very stylish friend, Sarah!

Sometimes there are just too many pretty things available to surround ourselves with that it can be overwhelming (at least to me!). One of those pretty things is a chandelier. They are elegant, girly, modern, clean, classic or country. Yep, there's one for every taste and style.

They are easy to update if you have one in your home that you just kind of like. Get out the spray paint to all of the "builder's shiny gold" chandeliers hanging over your dining room tables! Add a shade and you have a brand new piece. Really!

And they are not just for over tables anymore. Place a small chandelier in your daughter's room, or over you bed side tables. In a living room or reading corner; they are at home anywhere you see fit. A bathroom would surely be taken up a notch if a chandelier was added. Imagine the surprise!

Here are a few beauties I found online....

LOVE this post (obviously!). Especially the ideas about chandeliers in bedrooms and bathrooms. I don't really ever think you can have too many chandeliers.

I really like how all the colors are put together in these rooms! They all compliment each other very nicely and provide a nice vibe in each room!
