Creating a Conversation with a Dining Room Chandelier

I’ve always paid attention to light fixtures, especially any kind of chandelier. I’m not really sure why. They just seem to catch my eye. Everywhere, really. But lots of times in the homes of friends and family. So it goes to reason that they’re pretty important in our home, as well.

We changed quite a few light fixtures in our last home, and I imagine we’ll do the same in this one. As far as I’m concerned, it’s an easy way to put a custom stamp on a house, and these days, there are more options than ever before!

Chandeliers can certainly be a great talking point, and you are not limited to just traditional versions.

You can choose from a wide variety of chandeliers for your home. Then all you need to do is look for expert electrical services, to help ensure that the chandelier you choose is expertly installed.

That thought never crossed my mind, until Emily from One Kings Lane  contacted me a proposed pairing my favorite statement piece of jewelry with an oh-so-fabulous chandelier.

The more I thought about it, the more intrigued I became. And the more I thought that I could totally design an entire room around a fixture, with the inspiration of some jewelry! Here’s what I mean…
