I love love love chandeliers. Don't you?
Isn't this one exquisite?
I took this photo, having just enjoyed the most perfect afternoon tea on holidays in France. This is a magnificent, hand blown milk glass chandelier at the Regent Grand Hotel in Bordeaux.
To me, it says drama, luxury, beauty, mystery. It brings to mind pictures of impeccably dressed ladies in enormous hats, walking tall dogs on long leashes. The silk curtains and brass tiebacks, seem to be there for no other reason but to frame the chandelier. Certainly the tiny room it was in, served no other useful purpose. How very French!
In my dreams, I live in a home grand enough to accomodate a chandelier just like this one.
Maybe one day....
