One of my 2012 resolutions is to take more risks with my decorating. All my favorite designers (David Bromstad, Jonathan Adler) steer clear of boring decor... so why am I always, well sometimes, playing it safe?
Lately, I can't get my mind off of statement chandeliers. I love an over sized chandy in a funky color and/or dripping with bling. It brings your eye up and makes a tiny room feel a whole lot bigger. It is also extremely ballsy and fabulous when the walls are painted white to allow the color or bling of the fixture to stand out. Yep, I am now lovin white walls... only with extremely good styling can white walls look chic... otherwise, do not attempt!
Since my basement is still a work in progress(sigh), I have decided to convert our guest bedroom into an office. This required a whole new paint color and a trip to the Re-Store for an old and neglected chandelier. (Pix to come) In the meantime, here are some inspiring photos of carazzzy and cool statement chandys. Enjoy!
That island is so amazing! And look how similar it is to my desk.. crazy!
