Nothing brings a room together like a chandelier. The most sleepy of spaces instantly goes from lackluster to luxe with the addition of one of these quintessential light fixtures. The HGTV Design Happens crew wants to give your living room or dining room (heck – any room) a mini-makeover with designer chandeliers from Brooklyn-based lighting company Crystorama. Their classic designs hang from the ceilings of the US Supreme Court building and Constitution Hall.


Three winners will get to choose a design from the feminine Fiore Collection, modern Solaris Collection or transitional Hampton Collection, pictured above. To enter for a chance to win, just leave us a comment before 12/11c Monday, August 8.

This week’s question: What’s your best tip for giving a room a quick pick-me-up? A vase filled with fresh flowers? An accent wall in an “it” color? A bold piece of art? Or is it all about the lighting?

    Repurposing things really gives a room a new look! Just yesterday I took some green moss and filled two flipped over antique glass funnels. I put them on my entryway table as a little accent and it just gave the room a new accent piece. I try to change something little every week in my house so I never get bored with my designs!

    I love to change out the plants in the room. A new plant in a new pot can really make a bright change.

    Colorful table runners with different colored candles can change the look, feel, and smell of a room.

    To give your room a pick me up I say it's all about lighting. You could have a gorgeously designed room but the wrong lighting can throw off the aesthetics. if you've blocked a rooms romance or eclectic feel with florescent lighting or the energy efficient lighting that can be too white and bright redirect them a cover or a shade that will bring back the comfort. If it's an office with no windows bright lighting or fun colors can regenerate you during a hard days work.

    I enjoy re-arranging the furniture and letting in as much natural light as possible. Changing the seating around really makes the room feel like new. A good cleaning spree helps out a lot too. :)
