I’m not ordinarily into the shell thing, but when I first saw my friend Deb’s Florida condo, with its sleek modern design and furnishings (which reminded me right away of the furniture in our house on the Cape), I was surprised to see a West Elm capiz shell chandelier hanging above the dining table. Deb is so not a kitschy, shell kinda gal. Of course, like everything she does, it totally works.
Since I am in Florida right now, I thought it would be a good time to round up 18 rooms with capiz shell chandeliers. I love how they can look glam, or beachy. My favorite is the one above the amoeba-shaped modern tub; it’s stunning against those green and gold mosaic tiles.
