maura daniel chandelierAfter having three boys, one can only imagine how excited I was when I found out that I was finally having a girl. Ready to leave the world of blue trains, planes and automobiles, I found myself day dreaming about pink rabbits, delicate flowers and shiny rainbows. I had spent the later part of my years shopping for masculine décor, careful not to enter the “Pink” section of any store in fear that I might turn my son gay. But now, visions of a super duper girlie nursery were flooding my head and I could hardly wait to start decorating.

Before I even figured out what direction I wanted to take with the theme of her room, I knew there was one item that I had to have in my daughter’s nursery; A Chandelier. They’re so elegant and pretty and most of all, so girlie! Also, I had always wanted one in my bedroom growing up so I was determined to live vicariously through her. And so I began my search for the perfect chandelier.

I wanted something luxurious and striking yet sweet and innocent, fitting for a baby’s room, not for a dining room. With so many options on the Internet, it was hard to figure out what to buy. I had no idea which ones were good quality and which ones would look as good in person as they did in the pictures! I decided to narrow my search, only looking for “luxury”, “high end” and “fairly priced” and soon there was just one brand that kept popping up—“Maura Daniel”.

I quickly realized that this company was different than all the rest. Created by a husband and wife team, their products seemed to be the most unique, with styles that ranged from romantic to modern to Shabby Chic. On their website, I found a big selection of lamps, shades, wall sconces and of course, chandeliers, basically offering something for every different decor style. What was even more appealing is that each piece of lighting is made right in their Los Angeles studio, and just by looking at their designs, you can see the attention to detail and craftsmanship—they are not just another factory made product that gets lost in the shuffle. Additionally, compared to the companies and different brands, Maura Daniel was by far the most reasonably priced. I knew that purchasing a good, quality chandelier was not going to be a cheap endeavor, but it was astonishing to see what some of these other companies were charging! Spending more than $500 on a lighting fixture was out of the question—Afterall, I was decorating a baby nursery, not the Palace of Versailles!

Opting to go with a more Vintage feel, I decided to buy the Camilla Milk Glass Chandelier for just $372. Made of hobnail milk glass with striking crystal beads and droplets, this one felt the most classic yet still had a touch of girlie glam. One week later, it arrived on my doorstep, neatly and safely packed, and looking exactly the way it did on their website, only better. Within hours of receiving it, I had already called our electrician to install it!

Buying this chandelier has been the best purchase I’ve made for my little girl’s nursery. It’s amazing how just one object can add so much charm to a room. Every time I turn on the lights, I feel like I’m in a magical place, and the best part about it is that it’s not only a stunningly beautiful work of artistry but is also a fully functioning piece of lighting equipment. It shines bright, lighting up the entire room when I want it to, and with my dimmer, I’m able to lower the bulbs according to the time of day and the mood that we’re going for in her room.

If you’re looking for children’s couture lighting that is both classically beautiful yet won’t break the bank, Maura Daniel is the way to go. These fixtures are made of only the highest quality components, using beautiful designs and impeccable workmanship. With each lamp made to order, they take pride in their work and it shows.

Finally, I got my dream nursery! Oh, and so did my daughter.
