Sweet dreams

It wasn't until our staircase was built that we truly realized just how special the space and windows were. Originally, we just planned wall sconces to light this area, but it is now absolutely begging for a gorgeous chandelier.

Of course, the standard chandelier isn't what has caught my fancy. Rather, I've fallen pretty hard for these romantic Bocci lights which are made by a designer in Vancouver.

"The pendants are articulated seamed cast glass spheres with frosted cylindrical voids in them, which house halogen light fixtures. The pendants are designed to be clustered in groups - the effect being of many tiny candles encased in floating spheres of water. The light interacts with the imperfections / bubbles in the glass to make a visually rich halo of light around the piece."

Imagine your final steps of each day being met with magical twinkles. If these wouldn't send you to bed with sweet dreams, I'm not sure what would.
