Obviously, a living room chandelier goes along very well with a house that is styled in traditional, classic theme. The base nature of a chandelier that tends to look overly ornate matches the nature of a classic house that is often fitted with ornaments and rich in colors. However, just because chandelier is perfect to go with a classic house, it does not mean you can be reckless in their proportional arrangement. For example, it is not wise to pair a big, bulky chandelier with a colorful, highly ornate living room. The effect coming out of this pairing would be too much an aggravating.
Instead, if your living room has already in a state of being overly colorful and crowded with ornaments and decorative elements, try to pair it with a living room chandelier that is rather smaller in build. This may counter the cluttered scene and help shift focus from the room to it. If possible, try to get a chandelier that is crafted out of small, reflective crystals. The tiny crystals can reflect the light from the light bulbs across the room and they can also project the room’s color more effectively. You cluttered living room may feel wider as a result.
However, this is not to say that a living room chandelier can never go along with a modern living room. It all comes back to the shape of the chandelier again, anyways. Try to get a chandelier that is not overly intricate in design. If possible, stick to the one that is made of plain-colored metal, either black or metallic-toned is okay. For added value, try to pair the chandelier with a ceiling fan. This way, the chandelier can morph into something so useful that it serves you illumination, air-cooling, and decoration at the same time.
