Light Divine: Finding the Perfect Bathroom Chandelier

Light Divine: Finding the Perfect Bathroom Chandelier

As part of kitchen and bath month here at Apartment Therapy, we've been asked to assemble the elements of our dream bathrooms. I've been gathering ideas for some time, but the first image that came to mind was this bathroom captured by Danish photographer Morten Holtum. I love the freestanding tub, the irregular stone floor, and the moody clay walls, but what I find most seductive is the chandelier.

Oversized, but airy. Detailed, but not ostentatious. It exudes a quiet glamour that makes itself known without undermining the other elements of the room. And it doesn't require an electrician to install. All that's missing is a rustic stool for my towel, a kilim for my feet, and a view of the olive groves. When I find it — or an acceptable alternative — you can bet it will have a place in my dream bathroom. (Though perhaps with a bit more headroom!)
