{chandeliers + fête nationale}

One of the best things about entering a room is looking up, up to discover streams of reflected light from the crystals of a stunning chandelier -- instantly everything is transformed under a soft and elegant glow . . .

Nothing says "class and elegance" like an elaborate crystal chandelier. Lovely pics -- I'm especially fond of the first one.

Looove the pink bed and the pink honeycomb walls. As a renter, my chandelier options are quite limited, but someday I hope to have one in the bathroom for a little glamour!

Thanks for sharing these beautiful images today! I love light and these chandeliers were so amazing.

My friend, Gilles at the Henredon Showroom in DC reminded me that it was Bastille Day today. His wonderful design clients have sent him miniature Eiffel Towers. I wish I had a picture to share!

I have been seriously considering a couple small chandeliers for our entry way (and by small, I mean TINY!) They just bring such an almost-but-not-quite-over-the-top vibe. GORGEOUS round up!
