    These are some really good design tips for your house. I like your tip about thinking about the color scheme of the room you want to put a chandelier in. It the chandelier doesn’t go with the colors in the room you notice it in the wrong way. But a good chandelier will add a lot of value to a room. http://www.electrolight.ca/en/chandeliers.html
