According to DesigningIdea.com, popular types of chandeliers include:

Traditional – They are elegant with a formal style using detailed scrolling and the highest quality materials.

Tiered – Have a light for each tier. Therefore the more tiers this type has the bigger it is. A tiered chandelier can come any any style from contemporary/modern to traditional.

Mini – These light fixtures are a popular choice for the bathroom as their smaller size makes them ideal for an intimate space. Similar to a full size fixture, mini chandeliers are often used in bedrooms and closets to enhance the area and provide a sense of style and elegance.

Crystal – Glamorous is a great way to sum up the look of a crystal chandelier. They can also be expensive if constructed using real crystals. They are eye-catching and dazzling as light reflects off of each crystal. Crystal chandeliers are amazing for creating an aura of romance to a room.

Drum – Featuring one or multiple lampshades, a drum chandelier has a shade that completely surrounds each light or the entire fixture. They are similar in appearance to a pendant light.

Contemporary & Modern – Sleek and stylish are two words that define a contemporary/modern chandelier. With clean lines, straight edges and modern materials these light fixtures can really add your own personal flair to a bathroom space.

Rustic – With a casual style these types of light fixtures often have distressed or burnished finishes. They can even have rustic materials such as branches, tree branches, animal horns and old fashioned sconces and characteristics.

Transitional – A mix of modern and traditional, a transitional chandelier is widely adaptable and can most often fit in with any decor or design style.

No matter your style, you can’t go wrong with incorporating these gorgeous lights into your bathroom remodeling plan!

Scooch A Mi Boutique Grand Opening Parties

#HipNJ spoke with Ellen Eppie, founder and chief curator of Scooch A Mi Boutique, about their October 26th grand opening parties and her inspiration for opening the boutique.

Scooch A Mi is an eco-friendly and socially-conscious boutique selling jewelry, accessories, and gifts, located in the heart of downtown Chatham.

The goal of Scooch A Mi is to provide distinctive, quality items at the best possible price. The boutique is filled with treasures from local, national and international artists and artisans. Eppie says that she will never sell anything that she wouldn’t buy herself. “I need to believe in it completely.” 

Opening events will support local anti-bullying charity Mallory’s Army, which was founded after Mallory Rose Grossman, 12, of Rockaway, took her own life because of horrific bullying. “Having two daughters, this really resonated with me,” Eppie says. “My mission is to share mindful kindness and bring out the individuality of each person.”

Eppie is most excited to showcase the work of the featured artists and artisans. “I love that in many cases, I am the first venue where some of these artists will be able to display their work,” she says. “It is a privilege to be able to get their work out there.”

On Ocotber 26th, Scooch A Mi will host a Brunch Party from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm, and a Grand Opening Event from 7 pm to 9 pm. Guests can expect giveaways, prizes, food, and wine. “I want the boutique to be a community place,” Eppie states. RSVP to nubia@cieloconsulting.biz, or simply walk through the doors the day of the event.
