Day 13: Chandeliers

We’ve been dying to give our thanks for chandeliers all month.

Are you as excited as we are?

Chandeliers are unique lighting fixtures that are both functional and stylish. And who an deny their refined sense of elegance and sophistication?!

Whether it be classic or whimsical, a great chandelier has the ability to not only provide ample lighting, but also to set the ambiance and tone of an interior that can transform an entire space. With intriguing curves and endless embellishments, they are they most appealing type of ceiling art for any home — and can turn any drab atmosphere to a warm and inviting one with the flick of a switch.

Bronze chandeliers add character and rustic beauty, while silver and crystal lights make tend to be more classic and understated.

The size and scale of a chandelier is crucial to the overall look of a room. For small rooms like bedrooms and bathrooms, a chandelier with a diameter of less than 20″ is ideal. Larger spaces, including dining rooms and foyers, are more equipped to showcase lights anywhere from 20″-36″ or larger.

Take a look at some our favorite chandeliers from a few vendors we represent:

Sitcom Spotlight: Suburgatory

After reading the freshly pressed post from crunchings & munchings about why you should watch ABC’s hit show Suburgatory today, I decided to get caught up on the latest happenings in Chatswin, NY!

 The plan was to watch the first episode.

The plan failed.

In turn, I am all caught up.

That’s the thing about DVR and a good show…you get hooked!

I love everything about the show. From its brilliant writing to the quirky talent — and especially the over the top set design!

Take a look at this fabulously outrageous nursery:

Yep, thats a baby crib. It is awesome — and a little reminiscent of the 90’s ABC show “Dinosaurs”

You would have to understand a little bit of the background of the story to fully understand the reason behind the unique design of this nursery. One of the characters, Noah Werner (played by Alan Tudyk), is a single dad to a new baby this season. He clearly has a great sense of style…the function part is to be desired. Haha.

Regardless, I really like the concept and overall design of this room. It has a very eclectic variety of elements that capture both modern and traditional nursery design. And I don’t think I have seen anything quite like it.

So there you have it, my very first “Sitcom Spotlight”! I love looking for design on tv and in the movies and secretly wish to have the pleasure of one day designing my own set!! You can look forward to more of these fun tidbits of boob tube snapshots to come!!
