Getting the lighting right

We're in the throws of revamping our bedroom so I'm pretty much always on the look out for a fun addition to the room that doesn't break the bank.

Of course, I often stumble across things that I love that are not in the budget and have nothing to do with our bedroom, but that's half the fun of sleuthing online :)

My husband and I have a special disdain for the chandelier that came with the house (shown in top picture). Up close and personal it's super "fuddy duddy." Maybe if our house was full of antiques it would fit, but we're far from it. I'd love to replace it with this bubble chandelier made by the Brooklyn-based designer Jean Pelle. Isn't it that perfect mix of modern and do-it-yourself with the cables wrapped in cotton twine?
