Spring 2019 ORC – Piemonte Chandelier Installed
Lighting is such an important element of any design plan, and I can’t wait to show you how our new chandelier has added sophistication and beauty to our One Room Challenge Master Bedroom!
What is the ORC?
If you can’t tell, I’m pretty big fan of this fun 6 week friendly event between 20 “Challenge Participants” and hundreds of other “Guest Participants” (like me). All of us have the goal of transforming our spaces with only a month and a half to get it done. As an added bonus Better Homes and Gardens will be the media sponsors for this challenge.
We are a military family of six and we are always on the move. At the moment we live in a house that we actually own, and hope to call our forever home someday. As such, we are systematically tackling each room and adding high-end features, such as moulding, door hardware, paint, and lighting to update and personalize the space.
We have lived in this Virginia home less than 10 months, but the bedroom needs to flow with the rest of the rooms in our home that have been completed so far.
NOTE: The lighting in this post was sponsored by Corbett Lighting but the opinions are 100% my own…because this chandelier is AWESOME.
The lighting before was functional, but dim and dated. It was time for a change…
And change we DID!
Well… HELLO GORGEOUS! 😘
That’s right, this Piemonte Chandelier added just the drama I was hoping for in this space.
Why I picked this Chandelier
I went with the Piemonte chandelier because I was looking for something
-Subtle Art Deco Waterfall Shape
-Dramatic, without traditional Crystals
-Could hang on a slanted ceiling

This, however, is my first time installing a fixture from the Corbett line. Here’s what I have learned. Corbett fixtures are designed with extreme attention to detail, quality, and taste. This was evidenced by the individually crafted branches on each of the arms of the Piemonte Chandelier. Also, check out the precision in each of the handmade textured glass panels, and character in the gold chain.
The result is a chandelier that both bounces and diffuses light around the room in a beautiful fashion and becomes the statement maker for the space…EXACTLY WHAT I NEED!
