Chandeliers from Tracy Porter
Tracy Porter makes beautiful "jewelry for your ceiling."
In her video, which you can watch here, Tracy advises using a large chandelier to anchor an expansive room, then populating the rest of the room with smaller detail chandeliers. If you don't want to take Tracy's multiple chandeliers advice, a wall sconce is usually adequate and definitely the classic way to add additional light to a room where a large chandelier is the main focus.
Chandeliers evoke feelings of opulence and grandeur, and can completely change the feel of a room. One should be careful when selecting a chandelier that they choose a color lighter than the main woods or other materials being used to finish the room (don't put a wrought iron piece in a pine room, for example), and take note of how far the light wlll reach. The placement of the chandelier should not only distribute light well to the room, but it should be over a substantial space, whether that space be a kitchen island, a dining table, a pool table, or a dance floor. Chandeliers are best showcased centered over something that provides them a frame.
A chandelier makes an excellent gift for a loved one or young couple just starting out, but if you give one to your neighbor, be careful; they may think you're hinting that they need to do some redecorating. Perhaps it is best to buy them for yourself. See more like the one here in the gallery below!
