Forget the usual pair of matching lamps. A chandelier illuminates one side of this bedroom, adding life and energy to a rather plain space. It's a little bright for a reading light — I'd probably put it on a dimmer to calm down the scene at bedtime.
Most people would have mounted this chandelier in the center of the bed canopy. But that would have put it too close to the pendants that hang over the night tables — and besides, doesn't it look fresher at the very end of the bed?
Instead of hanging this chandelier in the center of the kitchen island, these homeowners went for a less expected placement toward the end. That way it shines directly over the island's seating area.
