I have a chandelier in my den that I love. The only issue I have with it is that the part which connects to the ceiling doesn’t look like much. I think that all chandeliers look better with a ceiling medallion that makes the ceiling as “fancy” as the chandelier.
The other issue is that my chandelier is a semi-flush mount (the ceilings in that room are 8′ high so the lighting needs to be close to the ceiling). That means the medallion can’t be very thick and it needs to be wide enough that you can see it around the edges of the light fixture.
I found a scrolled ceiling medallion at Horchow.com that I thought was the perfect solution, until I saw the price! As usually happens when I find something I like but don’t want to spend the money, I decided to make my own.
