Having a little fun today with the February challenge on the Earrings Everyday site. This month's challenge on We're All Ears was chandeliers.
To find out what kind of chandelier style appeals to me, I took the short quiz from Hudson Valley Lighting. You should take it - it's quick and fun. I got Classic Heritage, which suits me perfectly. Choices that appealed to me included a country farmhouse kitchen, wingback chair, footed bathtub and an airy white bedroom. It said I like Neoclassic, Gustavian and Victorian styles. (I had to look up Gustavian; it's a restrained version of the Louis XV and XVI styles.) And, if I were a city, I would be Williamsburg, Virginia. It also said I liked finding a good antique. Pretty accurate, all around!
So, I decided to delve into my stash of Victorian-style components and create some chandeliers from those. Easy enough, since I still have lots from the book I designed a few years ago.
Here's what I created:
I think that I can wear these to the opera! Check out all the other fabulous ideas on the Earrings Everyday post. Thanks for the inspiration, Erin!
