Ideas For Choosing…. A Creatively-Placed Chandelier

As a symbol of wealth and prosperity, chandeliers were once reserved for the most formal of dining rooms, and the grandest of foyers and ballrooms. However, in today’s design realm, chandeliers are slowly breaking free of their debutante statuses and making their ways into even the most “ordinary” of spaces!

So, if you are one of those people who has an affection for the drama of a delicious chandelier, why not incorporate one into an unusual location in your home, or display your fixture in a unique way?  You can add a chandelier in nearly ANY space in your home to contribute the feel of luxury interior design wherever you are!

As you will see from the photos below, chandeliers can add a touch of glamour to any decor style in any room! Sometimes, even the fixture designs themselves can be quite creative!

One of my favorite outdoor spaces featured in Traditional Home. I love how they spray-painted these chandeliers pink and mixed the styles with other fixtures!

….In a kitchen?!

Sometimes, simply changing the way in which you display a chandelier can highlight a specific area of the room or add interest to the overall design.

These fixtures are hung in unexpected places to add some pizazz to each of these spaces.

Rather than hanging them over the bed or in the center of the bedroom, Anthropologie hung these chandeliers to the sides.

These matching fixtures, and the way in which they are hung on both sides of the bed, make a creative display. Photo from Elle Decor.

NOW, GO HAVE AN  “It’s So Fabulous!” DAY!
