When we bought our house nearly six years ago, the light fixtures in most of the room were brand new so we didn't want to spend the money to replace them, even though they weren't particularly to our style (nipple lights, anyone?) or provided adequate lighting for the rooms they were in. Here we are years later, transforming the major rooms at the core of our house, and I'm thinking a lot about what I want to do about the lighting situation. Because of the situation of our house on our lot, and the proximity of the neighbors, we don't get much natural light in any room except my office. We definitely need something that is going to brighten up the space, while at the same time adhering to the style we're looking to have in each room. I've long coveted a few chandeliers from Pottery Barn, but I just don't think most of them are right for the space. There are two, however, that I really do love and think would look great in our rustic eclectic elegance craftsman space. (I used a mish-mash naming convention like on Secrets from a Stylist.)
Veranda Linear Chandelier - $329
Exeter 16-Jar Pendant - $399
In looking for the two previous images, I stumbled across a few new chandys at PotteryBarn.com and I think I'm in love. Totally wrong for our space, but oh so right in so many other regards.
Clarissa Glass Drop Chandelier - $449
Stanyan Lantern - $399
Capiz Pendant - $199
Townsend Oversized Hammered Pendant - $449
I've also recently seen a few beautiful options on Ballard Designs. I always forget about that store and I don't know why since they have such beautiful things available for all different styles.
Eldridge Rectangular Chandelier - $399
Stafford 5-Light Chandelier - $379
In addition to chandeliers, we also need to think about flush-mount styles for the living room. This one is a bit harder because nothing seems quite right for the space, but I do really love all of these.
Morgan Ceiling Mount - $169
Stafford Ceiling Mount - $179
Julian Flushmount - $149
Hundi Semi-Flushmount - $199
