I’m a sucker for home décor! When I bought my house a few years ago, I was just as excited walking into a furniture store or browsing HGTV as I am in the jewelry section of my favorite store. Decorating a house and picking jewelry require the same type of fun skills – finding the finishing touches for your home that give it that extra style boost it needs. You start with a vision of what you want a room to look like and have fun shopping for all of the possibilities.
Now when they say that a house is never-ending project, they weren’t kidding! One room that needs some serious work is my dining room – the lighting in particular. I have no hanging chandelier over my dining room table, I’m sad to say and as I was compiling my list of lighting options, I was asked by the folks at One Kings Lane to participate in the Light Your Look campaign. Talk about great timing!
I had to find the perfect lighting accessory from their collection of awesome chandeliers inspired by one of my favorite pieces of jewelry. The first thing that came to mind was the earrings I wore for my wedding.
These chandelier earrings were the perfect choice (duh!). It had just enough bling without overwhelming my entire look. They were smaller than the earrings I normally wear but had the same amount of glamour that my gown needed.
Those are the qualities I look for in a chandelier. I want classic and luxurious lighting but on a smaller scale so it doesn’t taking over the entire house. That’s why I chose the Galveston 5-Light Chandelier in Silver. It has a sleek yet stylish design with just the right amount of dangling crystal accents that remind me of my earrings. The diameter is perfect too, according to One Kings Lane’s guide to buying the right chandelier for your home. Because my dining room table seats 8, the diameter of this cool light fixture is just the size for my dining room.
What do you ladies think? Did I make the right choice?
