When we first moved into our forever home, there was a Tiffany-style light in the dining room. It wasn’t my style and didn’t really match the style of the house. For an immediate solution, Bradley hung a brushed nickel five-arm chandelier that I had picked up at Goodwill. It was underwhelming and I prefer polished nickel, but the one I liked was not in the budget.
We lived with it for two years. I kept watching the chandelier I liked, but it only rose in price over time. Then a couple of weeks ago, it popped up on Joss & Main for less than I had ever seen it. I also realized that it had been discontinued at some point, so all of the vendors that stock it online would eventually not carry it anymore. So I decided to go for it. Bradley got it hung for me, and I am really happy with the style, finish and size. It is the Pembroke 6-light chandelier by Elk Lighting.
I’ve also changed out the curtains in the dining room for these turquoise panels. That is a rabbit-hole of a story that I will share when I get around to doing a post about some changes I’ve made in the living room. Here is what the dining room looked like before:
