{seashell chandeliers}

Forever drawn to the intoxicating lure of the ocean -- the salty air, the rise and fall of crashing waves, seaglass, scallop shells and starfish, and these intricately beautiful grotto shell chandeliers that have such a magical, underwater allure . . .

that bottom one has been in my inspiration files for a while... but the second one has stolen my heart! i love good juxtaposition, and the way it contrasts with the modern lines is perfection!! lovely find!

I think it's the second one that does it for me. the chandelier is such a stand-out piece, so I love the simple spare furniture that shares the space.

but i think i would love any image that includes that little chair!

I love my sea shell chandelier in my dining room.
It fits our little beach cottage perfectly.
These images are beautiful.
Love the third one. Such a sunny place to eat.

Sit me under the chandelier and within the beauty of that top photo and I can die a happy girl. hee. Okay, okay, so I do already live at the beach, but it sure doesn't look like that, and I certainly don't have that gorgeous chandelier! yet! =)
