Interior Decorating Ideas Inspired By Sia

crystal chandeliers and pop star sia “I’m gonna swing from the the chandelier,” sings Australian popstar Sia in her hit single “Chandelier.”  It is an understatement to say this song has created quite a buzz.  First, young dancer Maddie Ziegler’s routine in the “Chandelier” music video won the MTV Video Music Award for Best Choreography.  And if that wasn’t enough, Girls star and creator Lena Dunham performed her own interpretation of the dance on Late Night with Seth Meyers a couple months ago. Here are three crystal chandeliers that would look great in a living room or dining room, but I’m pretty certain you wouldn’t want anyone swinging from them, even if it was Sia herself. Three Chandeliers Inspired By Sia:

  1. 4 Light Maria Theresa Modern Crystal Chandeliers:  Decorated with polished crystal, Maria Theresa chandeliers were used to light up ballrooms and palaces in Europe.  This particular Maria Theresa chandelier is a bit too small to light up a ballroom, but it is perfect for giving your small dining room or a cozy living room a luxurious feel.
  2. 8 Light Antique Brass and Crystal Chandelier: The antique brass finish is great if you are trying to give your house a more vintage look.  Its dimensions are slightly larger than the previous chandelier, so perhaps use this beautiful decoration to compliment an entryway or a larger living room.
  3. 6 Light Flush Mount Crystal Chandeliers Crown Style: With a more modern vibe than the brass chandelier, this chandelier’s crystals are tested in various ways to ensure the highest possible quality.  Part of the fantastic “crown collection,” use this beautiful piece to lighten up your dining room and feel like a king while you are eating your favorite cereal.

We hope that our chandeliers can help give a sense of style and class to any room you choose, whether it be a cozy living room or a grand entryway.

Retro Design and Lighting Tips

Crystal chandeliers for a retro look Retro design styles have taken the interior decorating world by storm. The term retro is most commonly used to describe decor styles from the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s. Styles dating back to prior decades would fall under the “vintage” category. While vintage and retro decor styles do have a tendency to overlap some, it is important to know which decade your style ideas are coming from and style accordingly. This consistency will lend a degree of authenticity to your room. Here are some more tips for creating the perfect retro decor for your home.

Retro Design Tips For Your Home: 

  1. Less Is More: As with any design trend, a less is more strategy will yield significantly better results than trying to pack the room full of accessories. Pick a crystal chandelier that speaks directly to the eras gone by and let that be the focal point of your retro design. Build around it and consider each addition in terms of the value it adds to the room. Don’t add items just for the sake of fitting every retro piece possible into the room!
  2. Stick With A Single Decade / Style: This rule of thumb goes hand in hand with the idea of less is more. Do some research into the various styles of the different decades. Find which you like the best and stick with that.
  3. Don’t Sacrifice Function for Fashion: While low hanging crystal chandeliers from the 50’s and 60’s make a fantastic visual statement, homes with small children or rowdy pets might find them to be a hazard. Find fashions that work with your family. Don’t make your family try to work around your fashion decor choices. That’s just inviting headache.

If you’ve decided on a retro look and are ready to browse lighting options, visit our site to look through our selection of retro chandeliers.

Shabby Chic Chandeliers

Hand Painted Valentino White ChandelierShabby chic is one of the most “in” trends in the world of interior design in the past few years. So, what is shabby chic? The “shabby” refers to the vintage style of many of the pieces. However, it’s also “chic,” meaning that everything is put together just right. Shabby chic designs are composed of mix matched furniture and eclectic accessories. The color palette tends to have a lot of whites, with neutrals and pastels being other core elements of the overall design. When it’s all put together, a shabby chic design has a soft, feminine feeling overall.

Light Fixture Finishes and Mixing Metals

A common cause of confusion when choosing your light fixtures concerns mixing metal finishes. Does it clash? Or does it match?

There are metal fixtures all over your home, from your door knobs to cabinet hardware to plumbing fixtures. Mixing two metals is fine, but three is going overboard. It’s a good idea to create cohesion between fixtures serving the same function like using brass door knobs through the entire home, for example. Certain finishes are also better for a certain style, which you can learn more about below. Besides that, have fun mixing and matching!

Contour Crystal Chandelier

The crystal chandeliers and light fixtures from Kingdom Lighting come in a variety of finishes. Metal finishes include chrome, gold, bronze, and brass. This article has some great suggestions for creating certain interior design styles with metal combinations.

  • For a modern design, they suggest combining wrought iron and chrome
  • If you’re more of an artistic design fan, stainless steel and copper make a great look together
  • A lavish home will often mix burnished copper and gold fixtures
  • For a timeless look that never goes out of style, choose silver and gold finishes

What look do you want to create in your home?
