My New Bedroom Lighting Is Up!!

We have been busy around our house. Well, I should say the electrician was busy around our house. This past week we had new lighting put in three rooms.

Over a year ago I ordered two Capiz shell chandeliers from West Elm.

I have had the fixtures for quite awhile, but was waiting until all the stars aligned to have them installed!!
(not really but I think Hubby was!)

Since my master bedroom has a soft ocean-like feel to it, I thought these would be a perfect addition.

 I have always had a fascination with this type of lighting.

What I love about them…….

*The shimmer and iridescence
*The way they move softly in the breeze.
*The tinkling sound.
*They look ethereal to me
*They add a bit of romance to the room

We had a few problems getting them hung at the right height that I specified, but the end results look exactly how I had hoped.

A dimmer is in place so I can get a wonderful candle glow at night.

I think you have all been very patient so I am going to show you them before the night stands are staged. 

I have something very special that is coming my way to place on my stand so that will be shown in a later post as soon as it gets here.

I am really anxious to style the nightstands, but all in good time, this has to be done just right!

To say I am happy with the lighting is an understatement. 

You should see them at night! 

They give off the most wonderful glow, and the shadows on the wall are fantastic. 

I only wish I could capture them in a photograph for you.

Even during the day with the lights off they have a wonderful shimmer to them.

Still more to do in my,

Stay tuned for one more change!!
