To me, there is nothing more lovelyΒ in a home than aΒ beautiful overhead light fixture. I am particularly fond of sparkly chandeliers and only wish I had more overhead electrical wiring to install more! Besides those amazing vintageΒ ones that sometimes pop up at antique shops if you’re lucky, here are some of my favorites on the market:
1.Β Pottery Barn Clarissa Glass Drop Chandelier: SWOON. Just swoon. I would love to DIY-convert this to a plug-in swag lamp and hang it over my dark deskΒ area.Β We have no overhead wiring in my living room/office area and I find myself straining my eyes in the dark because the lamps alone just don’t cut it. A swag lamp would certainly fix that problem!
2.Β Lamps Plus Harbour Point Liberty Gold Ceiling Light:Β I love the classic roundΒ shape of this flush mount which would look so cool in a hallway or any room with low ceilings.
3.Β Juliska Amalia Frosted Globe Pendant: I would put this in a country kitchen or a glam bathroom in a heartbeat.
4.Β Pottery Barn Rowan Chandelier: I love how light and airy yet undeniably striking this chandelier is. This would be lovelyΒ in aΒ bedroom or any place where you wanted to create a feeling of lightness.
5.Β Serena and Lily Malibu Chandelier: Um, hello I love you. This would look amazing in a California beach house living room or a shabby chic girl’s nursery. This oneΒ and this oneΒ are very similar and more budget friendly and this one has the same shape but features crystals instead of wood.
6.Β Ballard Designs Blanc 6-Light Chandelier: My mom has this wood beaded chandelier in her Wisconsin lakeside bedroom with these taupe tapered linen shadesΒ and it is KILLER, in the most cottage glam kind of way. It looks stunning against the backdrop of her light blue and ivory wood beam ceiling and the wood beads are more appropriate in this setting than a feminineΒ crystal pendant (because my dad lives there too!).
7.Β Pottery Barn Mia Faceted Crystal Pendant: I have this chandelier in my dining room and I will love it forever and ever and will bring it with me to every house we ever move to. Classic, high-quality, simply gorgeous. I also love this oneΒ which has a similar vibe.
8.Β Circa Lighting Small Country Chandelier: This would look beautiful in a modern cottage or any room with other light-toned woods.
9.Β Pottery Barn Kids Pagoda Pendant: Oh my god this one is too much fun. This chinoiserie-inspired one would be darling in a smaller entryway, a girl’s room, or any place you’re willing to take yourself a little bit less seriously.
10.Β West Elm Linen Drum Pendant: I have a gray felt version of this one in Oliver’s nursery and I just adore it. It’s ginormousΒ but that’s a good thing. I think it would look beautiful in a bedroom over clean white sheets and a happy robin’s egg blue paint color on the walls.
12.Β Land of Nod Top Tier Chandelier: OK, after writing this post I’m officially going to have to have a little girl someday so I can hang a glammy chandelier like this over her desk. This petiteΒ one is just too cute for a small space.
13.Β Currey and Company Parlour Smoke Gold Chandelier: Pure glam glam glam!
