Star Light, Star Bright

I recently had the opportunity to work with some clients on their 1922 bungalow.  One of the first selections we made was a large star pendant chandelier for their living room.  This home is full of fabulous period details like plaster walls, a big front porch with columns, coal-burning fireplaces, and stained glass windows, so this chandelier was a chic way to add a folk art piece to the home.

Here is a quick picture of the star chandelier after it was installed, shortly after my clients moved in. 

There are several resources for star pendant chandeliers, but we ordered from Direct from Mexico.  The chandelier was very affordable and arrived quickly, in great shape. 

Since we added the star pendant chandelier, I am noticing them more in magazines.  And they are not limited to craftsman-style bungalows!  Star pendants chandeliers are such a stylish way to add a folk art piece that mixes well with many different styles. 

The black-and-white star chandelier creates a nice visual contrast to the colorful pieces in this dining room.

Finding the right chandelier for a big-boy-room is a challenge.  You can't very well use a pretty tole chandelier, so a star pendant is perfect.

A star pendant makes a stunning statement in this modern entryway.

It even works well in a beach house, with whitewashed paneled walls, striped wood floors, and woven bamboo shades.

In another entryway, the black-framed star pendant picks up the black of the frames and the console table.

The glassy, clear pendant perfectly compliments this bright and airy breakfast area.

Are you liking the star pendant?  I can't wait to show you more pictures of this project!  Stay tuned!

I've been obsessing with star lanterns for a couple of years now and Direct from Mexico definitely seems to be the best price. I'm working on an nursery design now that makes use of one with opal glass. Such pretty light it will throw on the ceiling for baby! Can't wait to get it installed. I love the scale of the one you choose!

I love it! I don't know that I would have thought of it as folk art, but however it's characterized, it looks great!

The moravian star has always been a personal fave! Thanks for sharing the budget source that you used--I'll have to save this one in the files for the future.

I used to have one of antiqued mirror in my mud room but it didn't give off good light so we took it down. I loved the look and was so disappointed it didn't function as we wanted it to!
