Chandelier Love

{Image 1, 2, 3}

I just adore chandeliers, I often think you can get away with the most awful looking room as long as there's a chandelier elegantly hanging from the ceiling!

I have a French antique one in my bedroom at home in England (you can see here) which has blue teardrops hanging from it. My Mum gave it to me a few years ago despite being a complete Francophile. I wish I had it here in Sydney though so I could admire it's beauty on a daily basis!

Over the years I've become increasingly attracted to lovely delicate wire hanging candelabras that hold taper candles like the one in the picture on the left.

Are chandeliers your cup of tea and if so what kind of do you like/lust after?

how often do you look at an interior and find it's really the chandelier selling it to you? ;-)


  1. I really like chandeliers as well. I'm a bit of a tradtional style fancier. Yours is gorgeous!

  2. Completely agree with you Anna! I love them and do find I'm drawn to rooms just because of the chandy. Love your bedroom one back in the UK!
    Have a lovely wed,

  3. I think I like the more traditional ones too. Just love them..Rachaelxx

  6. I definitely love them, in the right room obviously!
    I like the last two images you picked... the combination of a fancy-almost regal-looking chandelier within a modest, simple room is amazing!

  8. I just love chandeliers and am determined to squeeze as many in my new house as possible.

    I loved the one in your bedroom at home, that is just lovely that you can keep your old room as is.

    Love your new header and profile pic.

  9. I do love chandeliers too! If I think about, the chandelier is what has sold me when it comes to liking certain rooms. Someday I must buy one of my own! Hope you're having a happy Wednesday!

  10. I love chandeliers too! I have one in my bedroom... it's so romantic!

  11. I do love chandeliers! It does add so much sophistication and romance to a room! I want to buy one for my entry way (someday) to replace the brass looking one that came with our home. :)
