isn't it just the most amazingly hexa-penta-octa-whatever you call it?! um, I KNOW.
well there was someone who didn't quite agree, and since he shares our home, and well built our home, i have to give him a little credit + take his opinion into consideration too.
let me explain why i loved it for our bedroom. it was a marshalls special, first of all, and you know i loves me some marshalls. ok lots of marshalls. ok marshalls as often as i can justify stepping foot in the store. its from the ralph lauren home collection and the suggested retail was something ridiculous like $450. ya. uh huh. and we got it for $150, thanks to the eagle-eye spotting of my very good friend. so needless to say it was a great deal in terms of high quality, high style lighting pieces. but mostly, i just loved the look of it! the modern geometric shape with the classically glamorous pale gold color....the sleek connector pieces....the exposed bulb position in the center....
i thought it would be such a fun sculptural item to hang either centered over back of the bed....
....or off centered over by the shelf + chairs in the corner. see that space there dialing 1-800-HOT-PENDANT? yep, to my eye, that corner was calling ralph's name loud + clear.
it even played so well off the side table bases. see?
and don't forget the fun diamond like shadow that is cast over the bed [see above picture]. that would have been a fun tie-in as well.
but i have to give the hubs props, because we do pride ourselves on doing decor as affordably + diy as we can, and saving every dollar that can be saved. so to allocate $150 on one light [plus the cost of an electrician hard-wiring it] when the room is already looking quite swell....its true, we really can live without it.
ok no really we can. i just might sniffle from time to time thinking of all those sexy angles + that sultry sheen. but who knows, maybe the hubs saved my life. it was an extremely heavy pendant + who wants that crashing down on their noggin as they dream the night away? not i!
