Of course I couldn't help myself but kicking through my favourite online sites over the weekend and have found THE chandelier for Project Master Retreat. I will show you what M picked up on Sunday in a few moments, but for now, let's take a quick lesson on Murano glass with Tommy Smythe.

Tommy's tips on Murano glass:
* Pick your style. From swirls to traditional lines in clear or contemporary colours, find a style that speaks to you.
* Showcase your investment. A genuine Venetian lighting fixture comes with a heavy price tag, so pick a location that garnishes a striking focal point.
* Fit the bill. If a chandelier is not in the budget, Murano glassware also comes as dishes and stemware to mirrors and table lamps. Even in small doses, this beautiful artisan-made material adds dynamic energy and glamour to any spaces.
Here is my favourite bedroom by Tommy. I particularly love the juxtaposition between the subdued, masculine color palette and a bold, dramatic, and more feminine take with the Murano class chandelier.

This timeless, luxurious material (in this case as a chandelier) is truly adoptable to any spaces, and here are three sophisticated rooms ready to prove my case. From ornate transitional to eclectic modern, a Murano glass chandelier has the magic to inject class, style, and a touch of whimsy to any spaces.

In a slightly different style, this pair of stunners at Christine's kitchen offers an incredible bold stroke of vibrancy against the clean white walls. As for me, I am currently obsessed with this multi-tier master piece for an instant showstopper and a shot of Hollywood glam.

Now back to Project Master Retreat. Remember this idea board I put together back in February? A slight delay at the project since M needs to put some faux grass in the backyard to welcome spring/summer for the kids. Nonetheless, we are moving ahead to source some of our key pieces.
From a little online shopping over the weekend, I have found a vintage Murano glass chandelier (well at least its authenticity was guaranteed by the seller, since I am no expert in spotting a genuine one vs. reproduction) that will truly be a star of the show in M's master bedroom. It will need a little cleaning and maybe rewiring, but it is too good of a deal to pass up especially when the price tag was only $150!!
