A collage of images from the magnificent 3 Arts Club Cafe inside RH in Chicago. It is one of my new favorite places to meet for lunch or a couple of glasses of wine with friends. The chandeliers are exquisite, to say the least!
I happen to be mad for chandeliers whether in a public space or in someone’s home. Today’s post will cover photos I have taken in public spaces to celebrate the coming New Year (they remind me of fireworks to honor a brand new beginning!) as well as Christmas, Hanukkah, (the Festival of Lights), and Kwanzaa all observed, at the same time this year. I hope you enjoy my pictorial of some of my favorites.
Just down the street from RH is the Public Hotel, here is what you see when you enter, how clever….amazing!!!!
In the Portrait Gallery at the Chicago History Museum, glorious.
The Grand Ballroom at the Hilton Chicago, always extraordinarily beautiful, here with red lighting for a Dance for Life benefit. I have done more shows and events at the Hilton Chicago than any other venue in the City and it is always perfection!

As you can see I like traditional pieces and aren’t we lucky that such beauty is available for everyone to share. Obviously, I have just scratched the surface so expect more posts on Chicago’s “public” chandeliers as well as those in my and my friend’s homes.
All photos were taken by me (with the exception of the Peninsula Chicago’s photo) with my iPhone.
