In an effort to reach the goal I set for myself, I have been on the search for a chandelier to replace that ugly fan in my bedroom. Here is what I am working with:
1. The ceilings in the room are 8ft, so I am a bit restricted in my choices.
2. I don't want it to be too feminine because I want the master bedroom to be a retreat for my husband as well.
3. I am working with existing lighting that I love--a brass floor lamp between two chairs in a nook on one side of the room and two bedside lamps made of old iron fragments that still have a little bit of creamy paint still on them on the other side.

I know that the height of the chandelier is important. I don't ever want anyone (and by anyone I mean my dear, sweet husband who is almost 6'2") to bang their head on it and curse my name! I am also really open to the design of it and the materials used to make it. I tend to favor an eclectic room. I went to my two favorite sources--Circa Lighting and Currey and Company and here are a few options that I have found...
|1. Dark Iron and Silk|
|2. Silvery Gold with Shades|
|3. Old Wood with Iron|
|4. Iron and Gold Lattice Drum|
|5. Beaded with Gold Accents|
|6. Gold/Brass Six Arm Wide|
|7. Gold/Brass Six Arm Narrow|
I really like them all, but I think I know what I a leaning towards. Which one would you vote for?
