I get questions all the time about how to safely add color to a room. And I must say, Chandeliers and pendants are one of my favorites ways! Of course I went full force with my office chandelier!
This is my kitchen. All the cabinets are Ben Moore Linen White, and these large red lanterns hanging above the island add the pop of interest I was shooting for.
The horizontal stripes in this space draw the eye up, and then the pattern is repeated on the pendant. The pink breaks it all up nicely!
Notice how this room is relatively neutral except for the orange lantern. A little color can go a long way!
Same here! Mostly white, but still this room is filled with the grandness of the yellow chandelier. Much more color would be too much for this space. Nothing needs to compete with the chandelier.
I’ve put together a shopping guide for 8 of my favorite whimsy chandeliers!
The Great Eight
- Faux Bamboo Lantern
- La-La Pendant

I hope you’re having a Whimsy Wednesday!
