The original mood boards
I thought you might like to see how the sitting room looks with the new chandelier in place ...
I love the impact it makes ... like adding an exclamation point!
Remember, this was where the dining room used to be and it had a chandelier hanging over the table. Rather than patching the ceiling where the chandelier was, I thought it would be nice to put something fun in its place.

We decided not to place a chandelier over the dining table in its new location for a couple of reasons - one, was that the table is off center from the current recessed lighting and it would be a "project in itself" to move them all in order to accommodate a chandelier. And most importantly, the room has enough going on visually with the art wall and a chandelier would have overwhelmed the space. Putting the chandelier in the sitting area balances both rooms and brings in a nice pop of turquoise. I like that it carries your eye over to the sitting area.
The area rug will cozy up the sitting area ... but if it never comes I am not sure it would be the end of the world!
