Interior Design Question: Chandelier Styles


I would like to know if there are any interior designers who say no to mixing styles...such as modern and traditional.

My example is a chandelier (modern) and a ceiling medallion (traditional), see attached picture. Is this always wrong? Or are there exceptions. Lastly what is your personal opinion of the pictured example.

Thank you!

Looks completely fine to me. I am not sure that the chandelier falls into any specific style to my eye and I like the ornateness of the medallion.

Yes, the medallion is beautiful. I just wasn't sure at how compatible the two were together.

Re: Interior Design Question: Chandelier Styles


It looks GREAT together.

But that is going to be hard to keep the dust off of, and the chandelier is hanging too low.

Being that I am 6'3" tall, I collide with nearly all those things, so am always watching my head.

Besides if anyone complains, tell them that your tastes are ECLECTIC, and see how long it takes them to look it up.

While I personally don't like the chandelier, I like the medallion and see no conflict in their pairing.

Looks great to me, not sure how someone would be bumping there head on that when it's over a table.

Thank you everyone for your comments. The chandelier is 25" wide and the medallion is 23" diameter. The four points on the medallion are 28" apart however.

Someone mentioned the chandelier being too low. It's about 32" off the table surface might add a chain link or two to bring it down further to 30" which is the "proper" height. I'm 6'1" and have no issues

Im still yet to paint the walls (white undercoat at the moment) and install wainscoting moulding under the chair rail.

I think I'm happy with the overall look right now. I'll post photos when it's done.

Re: Interior Design Question: Chandelier Styles


The value of an Interior Decorator is to help you find pairings of objects, colors etc that work together and harmonize a room. Paint colors, window coverings, furniture, wall hangings, etc. Once you put them together it is totally up to the eye whether or not the interior designer did a good job.

In other words if the pairing looks good to your eye then it is good. You do not need an interior decorator to tell you that! Do you like it?

Re: Interior Design Question: Chandelier Styles


I actually think your chandelier and medallion pair really well. Yes, the medallion and the room are traditional and yes, the chandelier has a more modern feel. The thing is though, that the chandelier also has elements of traditional design in it. The way it is curved and almost floral is reflected in the carved floral details of the medallion. I think the size is also great.

I know it can be hard sometimes when you are in the space all the time to keep second guessing your design choices, but let me tell you this looks very nice. Youíve done a great job meshing the two styles in the RIGHT way.

There are times when traditional and modern donít mix, but it looks like you already have a pretty good sense of what works and what doesnít. Where people go wrong is when they just get too much stuff in a space, in general. That can get cluttered looking and make the differences in style more obvious. Also, if you went with something super avant-garde with sharp lines and a cold metal that wouldnít have worked with your whole look, but that doesnít look like something you would do in the first place.

What really matters is that everything works together. Your table and chairs, the tablecloth, the ceiling medallion, and the chandelier ALL work together in this space. They all have an organic feel (curvy lines) that plays off of each other.
