My house is a traditional home architecturally, but I lean towards mid-century design, because I like clean lines and random organic shapes. Under the cut is the poll with choices.
Here is the dining room chandelier, it looks WONDERFUL lit and hung. I suspect. (This is the one the husband tried to hang with fishing line, btw. Ahem.) It was eye-catching in the store where I bought it, which is why I bought it. :)
And the underside, so you see how the light gets out:
(The orange fabric is for pillows in another room, that isn't staying in the dining.)
Things to know: to the right of the entry is the dining room where the rattan chandelier is - the room has loads of natural elements, but in crisp clean lines (minus the light fixture.) You aren't seeing all of the neat art work on the walls, or my fabulous curtains or my happy-making trees in the corners.
Beyond the entry is my living room where I have gold curtains. While I love silver and chrome and nickel, it won't work in the entry because of the 23 foot (no, really) gold curtains in the other room. My walls are greige, because I love true neutrals. /random

Help me make my house pretty: dining chair edition pt. 2!
Note: I hate my dining room set. It's old, it was available when we needed it, but it's served its purpose, and I'm ready for it to go. My husband points at the pool and tells me to chill. FINE, WHATEVER, BE THAT WAY. Ze Chairs:
Crisp, straight lines, no ruffles or bows, and possibly only have a short "Centurion" skirt. Lol. (Meaning: a few inches so you can see the legs, not a floor duster.) Scale too large? Now that I'm not in the fabric shop, I think it might be too large a scale, now. Should I just make a kick ass duvet with that material instead? I am filled with doubts. Also Cheerios, but that's neither here nor there. *burp*
