When lighting a sophisticated coastal home, whether it be for a vacation residence or your main dwelling place, you always want to keep it simple yet elegant and creative. In considering the addition of a chandelier, you may think that too dramatic for a coastal home, but the truth is, with the right beach-inspired design, a chandelier is perfect for the job.
Decorating with a Chandelier
Purchasing lighting for your home can sometimes be tricky. However with a few basic rules (see Coastal Living: The Lowdown on Lighting) you can get it in a cinch! The trick with adding a chandelier is to look at a large variety of styles and sizes, then to hone in on the basics such as the overall tone of the room. We have a few ideas for you to consider here.
Cottage & Bungalow has an array of magnificent chandeliers to suit any style decor. If you want a chandelier that is made with lavishly carved crystal or fun and expressive with eye-catching color, we’ve got it.
