Oversized Light Fixtures....Yes, Please!

I have fallen in love with over sized light fixtures lately!  I've been on the hunt for one for our living room.  Right now, we have a dinky ceiling fan.  With the vaulted ceiling, the ceiling fan tends to get lost and when you turn it on, you barely feel anything because it is so high.  So, off to Pinterest I went.  I have found such inspiring photos I had to share.
 

Here's a pic of the living room.  It needs some drama hanging from the ceiling!
 


 
Don't ya think?
 

I'm a sucker for crystal chandeliers.  Talk about drama!





Look at that wallpaper on the fireplace place wall!  Gorgeous!





This one is very simple, but makes a statement.  Dear Lillie blog is the best!


Ballard's Design has a good selection at reasonable prices.


Sarah Richardson always gets it right.  I love this light fixture.  


But, I think this one has to be my favorite.  Its grand and has little whimsy thrown in.

 
This, is what I'm after!  Wish me luck!
 
 
Blessings to all,

Breakfast Room Reveal

The breakfast room still has many changes coming its way.  But, I wanted to show it to you for now. 
 
 

 
~Before~


~After~


The first thing we changed out was the light fixture.  I have been obsessed with lanterns and found this one at Ballard Designs.  The only problem it has is the bottom is covered so the light cast a shadow on the middle of the table.  No big deal.  But, now if you order this light fixture the bottom has been taken off.  So, it is completely open now.  Problem fixed.  I think they listened to their customers.  


This wall is about to get a huge makeover.  I've got something special planned for this wall!
