The Jewelry Of A Room!

I once read in a magazine that a chandelier is the jewelry of the room. Who doesn't love jewelry?  I had never thought of it that way but it's so true.  Today I thought I would share with you some of my chandeliers and lamps in my home.  Last year when I did my bathrooms over I decided to eliminate the traditional light fixture above the mirror and use something a bit more dramatic!  I have not regretted it one bit!  
Master Bath
The chandelier is called Bagatelle by Schonbeck.  I used the matching sconces on each side of the vanity.  It's so hard to capture the beauty and sparkle of crystals in photographs.


Matching sconces

Guest Bathroom
The chandelier is by American Brass & Crystal and I used the matching sconce on the wall.  In the morning when the sun comes in the Strass crystals are amazing! 




I purchased this redone vintage chandelier at a local store.  I added the shades.
I was so lucky to find this on Ebay in the exact Waverly fabric I used in my family room.

I bought this Capodimonte chandelier right after I read the article about chandeliers being the jewelry of the room.  I found an ad in Romantic Homes for this and it was only $99.00.  I think my ceiling medallion cost more! :)  Someday I might move it to my guest room and get something a little bit bigger with crystals.  

I found this gorgeous floor lamp online at Shabby FuFu.
I bought this many years ago from Lamps Plus.  I love the way the roses are painted on the inside.
One of my favorites is this retired lamp by Fenton.  The pattern is called trellis
 
This beautiful lamp shade(the lamp is from Lamps Plus) that sits on my tea table in my living room was done by the very sweet and talented Rebecca from A Gathering Place.  
This hand painted vintage cutie I purchased from Ebay quite a few years ago.
Last but not least this one is my all time favorite and if anything ever happened to it I would CRY!  I don't know the manufacturer.  I bought it at a local store called Call Me Old Fashioned.  I LOVED that store!  Unfortunately they decided to retire (what nerve). :(  My son Darrell went in there with me one day and said to the ladies "oh my gosh this is our house without the beds". LOL He even bought me a birthday present from there once.  My mother, my sister and I were regulars there and were broken hearted when they closed.   I hope you enjoyed your visit here today.  Have a wonderful day!

  4. Oh gosh I am LOVING all your lamps and chandeliers Denise!!
    We have only one chandelier that's in our family room addition but nothing as grand as the one in your master bath! I am coveting it :-)
    We need new light fixtures in our bathroom - our one and ONLY bathroom :-( and the sconces in your guest bath have caught my eye!
    Thank you for again inspiring me with your decorating skills!!
