We are tickled for the longer days and seeing fresh flowers in bloom.

Chandelier beauty – Part 2

Many of our followers enjoyed our first chandelier beauty post, so we continue on today.

Let’s explore the second floor a bit, shall we?

Hello there, Ballroom!

The six chandeliers hang from the ceiling to provide light, beauty and and grandeur to the space.

Sometimes its challenging to take in the details many feet below, but look at the signature quatrefoil on the chains and the elegant draping over the lights.

We are grateful for these beautiful pieces to light our spaces.

Next time you see them, be sure to take in some of their special elements.

Beautiful moments

Today, we are swooning over these gorgeous images in black & white.

The couple’s friends and family exuded love, happiness and joy for the special day.

Chandelier beauty

If you have visited the building, it is apparent that Julia Morgan had a gift for elegant details.

Let’s explore the first floor a bit, shall we?

How pretty is this chandelier present in both the Drawing Room & Theater?

The curved lines and quatrefoil at the top are elegantly French.

This chandelier is also a stunning focal point and welcoming fixture in the Lobby.

Lucky for us (and you!), we have 4 of them to create a warm, inviting feel.

Where the light from the chandeliers doesn’t reach, we have natural light and elegant sconces.

We hope you enjoyed seeing some up close and beautiful images from our treasured building.
