Home Ideas: Chandeliers

More pinterest inspiration!  Today we're looking at ways to jazz up the dining room.  Standard builder grade dining room chandeliers tend to remind me of the 70s/80s. Not that we're planning on having a ton of sit down dinner parties, but I would still love to have a statement piece above our table.  The first is my favorite and I started looking online after seeing a similar structure on a sneak peek of  HGTV's The High Low Project with Sabrina Soto.

The next fixtures have a very clean modern feel to it.

We're not the woodsy type, but this chandelier would definitely be a conversation starter

Lots of sparkle in this next one.

Have you changed out builder grade light fixtures in your home?


  1. I love the woodsy one, but that's our style. I like the second one for a modern home! We still have the 80's bronze lights hanging here and there...after painting the walls and replacing the floors they're definitely eyesore!

  2. I think the woodsy one is so interesting, I would love to see a room that someone designs with that type of chandelier.

  3. I like all of these, but I think my favorite is the one from HGTV. I saw something similar recently on "For Rent" too. Probably about anything would be an upgrade from builder grade though!

  4. Oh man, I'm DYYYYYING to change out some of our lighting fixtures. They're terrible! I love all of your inspiration.
