Shine a light

Jobs don't always get done very quickly in our house. There is always so much else going on that fixtures and fittings can sometimes take a while to be attended to. This gorgeous chandelier is one of them, but it was worth the wait. I know it is very kitsch, but I love it. I first saw it in a magazine many months ago, and, like many items which appear on the homes pages, I could never actually find it in the shop or on the website. But patience paid off, and finally I spotted it in store.  It is called Bohemia and it comes from British Home Stores. 
This is all part of my plan to bring colour into our hall. I have some vintage bud vases (1960s ones I think) displayed on a shelf nearby, which pick up the shades in the chandelier. Just a stripy rug or runner to save for next, and it should look much more inviting....
