Big Statement Chandeliers and Kid Rock

I am back!  Nola was so much fun!  I’ll share some pictures later in the week.  Before then, I have to tell you the bizarre highlight of the trip…antiquing with Kid Rock.  No joke.

I’ll explain. Since I love old things, I knew I wanted to devote a day to Magazine Street which is known for the abundance of antique stores.  I walked into an upscale store called Bush Antiques and while gawking at a brass bed, in strolls Kid Rock with his bodyguard and entourage.  What is really ironic is that a few days ago at MLB lecture/book signing, one of the projects that the designer to celebrities showed happened to be Kid Rock’s newest home.  Mr Bullard talked about one design meeting that was held in Kid Rock’s kitchen, complete with a stripper pole and a group of gogo dancers.  So naturally, I wanted to go up to Kid Rock and casually say, “I saw your house.”  But that would have been really creepy, right?  So I turned chicken and just followed him for a minute and then walked out.  I wish I would have stayed in the store a bit longer to see what he purchased.  Nonetheless, I sorta feel like I brushed elbows with celebrities last week, and I guess I literally did.

Yeah, it was weird.

But back to real life.  I have been thinking of my chandelier problem.  And I found some nice examples of large pendants that make a big statement.

Observe below:

I love how this one above has a teeny-tiny tabletop with that enormous crystal chandelier.  It has a bit of an Alice in Wonderland feel, in a good way.

I think this one is even bigger than the Saarinen table below. Lovely.

So I feel better about the whole over scaled chandelier thing.  It’s better to be noticed than not, right?  Oh and I found this picture below while searching this subject and I am in love.  I lurve the modern acrylic box that houses the very traditional chandelier.  Hmm, maybe when I get tired of my bamboo chandie, I may do this to change up the look.  It would be an awesome diy.{via}

You know, I always thought I would be a crazy, star struck person if i ever ran into a celebrity.  But I am glad that I wasn’t.  How about you, care to share any run-ins with celebs?
