shopping for a modern chandelier

chandelier shopping // smitten studioRemember when our house looked like this. It was after phase one of the kitchen renovation and when we were still trying to make the house look like it wasn’t all under construction (and before we gave up that pipe dream in our third month of the major renovation). You will be able to see how we’ve been living lately in the next post, but I wanted to take a look at this for my chandelier shopping needs.

I am sure we all can agree that lighting makes such a difference in a house. I have a real weakness for beautiful modern chandeliers. I could lose hours (and I already have) happily shopping for the perfect one. Here are my top picks!

modern chandeliers - round up // smitten studioOne of my favorite sources for lighting is 1st Dibs, they have so many amazing vintage lamps. Of course most are way out of my budget, but it still helps to narrow down the style I want and it also makes me think doing a DIY like this one or this one, might also be a great option.
Which ones are your favorites?
