Which dinette chandelier to buy?

Please help me pick the right chandelier for my extended breakfast nook. I don't have the actual picture of my kitchen since it is still being built but the picture below resembles my kitchen a lot. The dinette is simply en extension of the kitchen and it is pretty big. We want to add a little bit of sparkle to this 'informal dining room'. Crystorama chandelier is much simpler with less beading and Quoizel is more "grand". I personally like Quoizel chandelier more but I'm just afraid it may be TOO grand for my dinette. Any thoughts? Suggestions?
Thank you

I think these may be too formal for a 'nook' What table set are you putting in there? That will ultimately decide the size of the lighting.

It is a regular semi formal dining room table which seats up to 6 people. I read somewhere that when picking ceiling lighting you are supposed to add the width and length of the room in feet and that approximately should give you the size of the lighting in inches (when it comes to width). Correct me if I'm wrong. So according to this measurement I could go with 25 inches chandelier.
What do you think? and thank you for your comment

Diaspoton...thank you! that's an idea..although the kitchen nook is more visible from the living room and hence we thought that something more noticeable would work better. The kitchen itself and the living room are divided by half wall with 2 columns going up.

If you do decide to go with the Quoizel fixture, we would love a photo of the finished shot!
