Recently, my husband and IÂ went to the Green Brier Resort for a weekend getaway.Â AsÂ we walked into theÂ poshÂ resort, the ornate chandeliers captured my eyes. The fixtures beamed glistening rays of light in each room.Â The different styles of chandeliers were made from different components such as crystal, brass, bronze, pewter, wood, and wrought iron. Many of the candelabrums had intricate carvings that added to theÂ elegance of the twinkling fixtures.
The chandeliers added such a dramatic and enchanting feelingÂ to the rooms as you will seeÂ from the photos below. I loved the bold colors and the rich tones and the way theÂ light fixtures accented each room as we strolled through the mansion.
The sparkling chandelier created different mood settings at breakfast and dinner. The sun light reflected off the many facets and created rays of magical light both in the daylight and the evening.
The word chandelier: meaning candleholder comes from âchandelleâ,
the French word for candle. It’s applied to a light fixture suspended from the
ceiling, usually having branch supports and two or more candles or electric lights.
I hope you take a moment toÂ indulge in these beautiful shimmering chandeliers as your eyes wanderÂ over these photographs.
