Lion and Hound:
The twist is pretty darn cool, but I think I like the owl best. Owl!
Oh wait -- there's also this gothic one. Now I'm really torn. I love the owl, but I'm adding a variety of gothic details to the house; this might go better?
And speaking of gothic, that same site offers a gothic sconce that might solve my foyer problem. I've had a really hard time finding a sconce that would coordinate with the Moroccan-style pendant we bought some months back. Theirs is lovely, and I think it would go reasonably well, although if anything is going to break our budget, it's lighting. Didn't I just say I wasn't going to buy any more expensive light fixtures? Do you think they'd work together, or am I fooling myself? I am really having a tough time finding a coordinating sconce for that pendant -- it's almost enough to make me banish it to the mudroom. That would solve the sconce problem -- of course, then I'd need a new pendant for the foyer. Argh.
I am also ridiculously fond of this gypsy chandelier, and am trying to figure out whether I can justify putting it in my basement craft room. It doesn't really go, aesthetically, with anything upstairs, but I was thinking the basement could be where all my bright color desires could be indulged. I'm not normally a big fan of acrylic (the central column is glass, but the rest is acrylic), but this is just fun. And I suspect the glass version would be hideously expensive, whereas this is quite affordable.
If I did it, keeping in mind that the basement ceilings are a little under 7 ft, do you think the large chandelier (23" high) would fit okay? Or would the small (11" high) be a better choice? The small is cute, but it's the large one (pictured above) that really dazzles me.
Hmm...on looking at it more, I realize the colors really are the same as in Kavi's room -- bright pink and orange and green and blue, with light orange and yellow walls. It's almost a perfect match, in fact. And she has a vaulted ceiling, so the large size would be fine; might even have to lengthen the chain. Maybe it should go in her room instead.
Dare I say it, in both rooms? They're four stories apart, after all. Although in that case, maybe it really should be the large version in her room, and the small one in the craft room with the low ceiling? I don't know.
