Chandelier Envy

One of the things I love to do most in the world when I have a spare moment is to trawl through the many amazing American blogs I follow.  Americans really know how to “do” blogging and always seem to find the most extraordinary things.

I literally gasped when I came across the beautiful blog that is Maison Decor belonging to the talented Amy.  This chandelier is the stuff of dreams.  I have been searching for it all my life, I had it in my minds eye but have been unable to find it and then…… There it was !  Read her story about how she came across this exquisite  piece

Can you imagine living in such a home with such a thing of beauty ?   I am beyond envy ………

    Oh yes, it's very you. Ask for first dibs when she re-decorates! (Americans are always redecorating, right?)

    I have light fittings (won't go so far as to say they are chandeliers exactly) which used to take those candle flame shaped bulbs. Now you have to put the modern flourescents in – how to stylish people deal with this?

    That's awesome!! What I've decided about the Americans is that generally they have so much more space than us (well in the blogs that I read anyway!!) and their homes tend to be more open plan and because of this they can get away with amazing furniture etc. At least, they don't appear to live in a 2 up, 2 down semi like myself 😉 I don't think I've explained myself very well but I know what I'm trying to say………..

    Thank you for your lovely comments. I can't stop looking at her blog. I seriously would change nothing about that room . I dream of owning a chandelier like that.
