A cream chandelier enable you to bring a touch of French country design into your house, whilst a white chandelier is extremely well suited to any period style property or in rooms with predominantly pastel colours, such as pale orange hues, cream or yellow.
The traditional styles resemble French chandeliers that became increasingly popular during the 17th and 18th centuries, with many of them making their way over to England. In those days they were very large and hundreds of candles were used instead of modern lamps.
The more contemporary cream designs will look fantastic in any bright contemporary setting without taking over.
Fortunately they are now of a size to fit almost any sized room in most houses. They are of a classic design with historic charm, yet create an impression of a clean crispness and an airy feel into any room. Cream is a very versatile colour and will look fantastic in almost any setting without the chandelier being a dominating feature.
Once again, proportion is everything. If you have a very large room, then a small chandelier will look lost. Similarly, a large white chandelier in a small room can be overpowering. Choose the correct size with care will lift the room whilst adding a certain country charm to the surroundings.
