While scouring the interwebs for the perfect light fixture for our eating nook, I came across so many gorgeous options with the ability to both compliment and/or transform the space. Case in point: when I finally bit the bullet and bought this gorgeous beaded chandelier, it was like icing on the proverbial cake because it pulled the entire living area together with the kitchen behind me. It’s stunning in person and we adore it!

Since we had so many light fixtures to buy for the new home, I had major decision fatigue and found this kitchen light to be the toughest one to choose. Mostly because there are so many great choices for dining room lighting. I almost went with a basket weave fixture for a coastal feel, but in the end, the beaded chandelier won over my heart.

One tip is to consider buying light fixtures that allow for dimming to set the mood. The right level of light when entertaining and eating makes all the difference. We added dimmer switches to several of our light switches (mostly dining areas and bedrooms) to set the mood and tone for different times of the day and night.

Here’s our dining room, which still needs to be painted (we’re going for a dark blue/ gray) to make that mobile chandelier pop. The builder’s grade lighting in here was harsh and unforgiving, but the new chandy on a dimmer is perfection whether dining with my family or friends.
