A chandelier is, perhaps, one of the easiest home accessories with which to decorate. They come in variety of colors, shapes and sizes and there is sure to be one that will fit even the simplest design aesthetic. These chandeliers range from simple and rustic, made with mason jars, to the more elegant bronze and crystal chandeliers.

A pair of velvet upholstered accent chairs and a wooden table go beautifully with this classic gold and white chandelier.

Here, a wrought iron chandelier compliments the clean, simple lines of a danish modern dining room.

An ornate chandelier with crystal drops and an ornate bed upholstered in rose-colored damask don't overpower this otherwise spare white bedroom.

Here is a bedroom that embodies what designer, Jonathan Adler, calls Preppy Chic. A beautiful four-post bed, and a white-and-yellow striped headboard go so well with the yellow accent tables along with the simple white iron chandelier.

This is a lovely example of mixed-and-matched chandeliers used to compliment an outdoor wedding reception. The stone fireplace and the wood-slats add a beautiful rustic vibe.

Here is a very quirky example of a DIY chandelier. Pages ripped out of favorite Shakespearean plays, music books and fiction novels adorn this fun chandelier, which should be easy to replicate at home.

This glass chandelier in a pretty turquoise adds a lovely touch of color in a Danish Modern-lite bedroom. The truly great thing about chandeliers? They can go just about anywhere: the bedroom, dining room, living room...even the bathroom. Not only that, but chandeliers don't always have to be used for practical purposes (i.e., lighting); sometimes, they are just something pretty to look at.

Lovely, aren’t they? I love the simplicity of the 3rd image, I love the mixed-and-matched chandeliers outdoors and I absolutely love the pop of colour the turquoise chandelier provides in last image - not to mention the leather chair! {touching on a blue & orange combo, love it!}

The paper chandelier is really creative and unique, and I love the mix & match chandeliers at the outdoor wedding. There's something about a grouping of chandeliers that's just so pretty and glam....

I'd put the $35 gift certificate towards the Uttermost Klum Collage Wall Art Set right on the main page of the Arcadian Home Decor web site. The pieces have great colour and texture.

I loved the paper clippings light it was from Pottery Barn but I couldn't find it anywhere. I thought it would be perfect over the dining table and I could change the display with photos on birthdays, vintage christmas cards at christmas etc… sigh, you've made me crave it again.

Beautiful chandeliers I would love to have at least one of them. But I like most is the one on the last photo.

I love the straw one and the purple egg shells, wow! I'd love a tutorial if you have it. I made a pendant light out of anchandeliers Ikea paper lantern with origami Post-It flowers hot glued all over it. Super cute, just don't have a picture to share.
