Ask a Decorator: The Battle of the Chandelier vs. Ceiling Fan

Reader Patti asked Decorating Den:

“I’d like to hang mini-chandeliers on either side of queen bed in a room which has ceiling fan w/light above the bed (center of room). Will chandeliers look silly with fan?”

Decorating Den’s Ottawa Interior Decorators has some advice for Patti:

It wouldn’t be something I might suggest.  It would be rather competitive in the space.  I would recommend one of two things: to change the fan to one without a light kit that is in the finish similar and style to the bedside chandeliers; OR install a chandelier that is in the same family as the other lights.   As the bed size is queen, it is important that the size of the bedside lights be smaller in scale.
