Chandelier Eye Candy

By House*Tweaking on Feb 22, 2012

My latest Ideabook is up over on Houzz today. This month I featured a slew of chandeliers that can be used in various settings. I really believe that switching out seen-better-days fixtures or builder stock lighting can make a world of difference in any house. Here are a few of the lights I featured…

Chandy Eye Candy

In our previous home {a boring builder}, we replaced the plain Jane pendant in the open dining area with a capiz chandelier.

FYI – The West Elm chandy we used is now on sale if you’re interested.

I also rigged up a fandelier in our previous master bedroom for added drama. {See how I DIY’d the upgrade here.}

I’m enjoying choosing lighting for the Underdog, our current home under renovation. I still need to find fixtures for the master bedroom and boys’ shared bedroom. I’m leaning towards something with a hint of glam for our bedroom and something simple and industrial for the boys’ bedroom. I’ll let you know what I find!

Thanks for all the suggestions on ideas for future Ideabooks. I have quite the list which is a good thing! Keep ‘em coming and check back tomorrow for a peek at a recent purchase I made for the Underdog. Hint: It will have you seeing double.

I was not compensated in any way for mentioning specific lighting fixtures in this post. I just love sharing good stuff!
