Eye Candy: Crystal Chandeliers

Wednesday, August 24, 2011

A couple of years ago, I wouldn't be caught dead with I would have changed a crystal chandelier in my home to a more modern one as soon as humanly possible.  Now, when collecting these images, I was completely drawn to crystal, like the kind my mom had.  I guess what's old is new again, at least for me.

I had a client that moved into a new house where the builder had put up a very ornate crystal chandelier.  It must have been worth a small fortune.  The clients' first thought was to replace it, but by the time we were finished with the dining room it "didn't bother" any of us anymore.  By the time we were finished with the house, we all loved it and wouldn't have dreamed of changing it.

To me, chandeliers make the room.  They obviously serve a function (to provide light), but their importance in being the crown jewel of a room is just as important to me.

I LOVE a chandelier in the bathroom.  I was so disappointed recently when I asked my electrician to hang a chandlier in my bathroom.  It was just large enough that if he hung it just past where the door swings open, a portion of it would be over the tub frame. I said "So what? Go ahead and hang it."  He looked at me like I was crazy and said (1) It's against code, (2) It's incredibly dangerous, and (3) He wasn't going to do it for all the tea in China.  Ok, ok, I get it.  No chandelier over the tub.  Apparently, in the photo below, it just LOOKS like it is over the tub (that's what he told me when I presented all of my clippings showing that people do in fact hang them over tubs).

 I love this one (click on it for more info) for a girl's room:

The post I did last month on my bedroom update got more hits and comments than anything I've ever posted.  And I'm convinced it is because of the chandeliers.  Here is the photo I showed:

I'm quite convinced that no where near as many people would have looked at it without those wonderful Overstock chandeliers!
