Blue Chandeliers

Ivanka Trump's apartment was featured in In Style and House and Garden in 2007, and we still can't get enough of these pictures.  We were actually surprised by how much we love her home-- it feels comfortable, relaxed and not over-styled:

Yeah, we'd like to move in.  Our favorite room is definitely her bedroom-- we love how calm and serene it feels, but the (perfect) red laquered lamp shade on the dresser keeps the room from feeling one-note.

Another favorite in her home is the blue chandelier above her dining room table:

In such a traditional space, we love the unexpected pop of color that the chandelier provides.  We have to say, of all the colored chandeliers we've seen, there is something about blue that we absolutely love (full disclosure: Julie has a blue chandelier in her living room). Colored Murano glass chandeliers are our favorite-- there's something really light and whimsical about them:

If you're not in the mood to drop thousands on a blue chandelier, we're right there with you.  We think this chandelier from Z Gallerie is a great look-for-less option:

If you want to spend even less, Jenny from Little Green Notebook transformed a big, brass Craigslist chandelier with a can of spray paint.  This is probably the route we'd can decide on whatever shape and shade of blue work best in your space:

So, what do you think? Is this look for you?
