Kitchen is on my mind... It is in progress, and even if I don't have it yet, it's in the making, and I think of it like a child being born in a month's time! Yeeey!!
Anyways, during this time I can plan and plan and imagine...
Let's talk kitchen lighting, shall we??
Take a look at the kitchen plans again:
See the bar on the left? Above, on the ceiling I need some lighting.
The second piece is in the middle of the kitchen, and the third is on the right, in a straight line with the second , 2,5 m away from it. So, there are three pieces of lighting needed in the kitchen.
Now, let's see all the fab inspirational photos I'm browsing these days:
That awesome piece over the bar is haunting me, i swear!!
I want it bad!!
The thing is I don't want to do matchy-matchy pieces, I want to choose different for the bar and two matching pieces for the other two places...
It's hard, though, choosing pieces that are different and that still match!
I could choose a pendant like in the image above, but hubby doesn't really like them...
Here there are flutes above the bar and a pendant above the table.
Nice, but not loving them.
Now this is DIFFERENT LIGHTING!!
What do you say? Do they go together?
I wouldn't do this for my kitchen...
I think these match better...
These are nice, I like how they blend...
This is something similar to what I want...
Though I have two different plans...
I think my husband would give a big no-no to this..:))
Again, that piece above the table!!
Really craving for it!!
And now, this is PERFECTION for me, people:
This is the fabulous kitchen of the fabulous designer Dawna Jones!!
I just love those lights above the island....so perfect!!
Check out her site for more on her house and on her work!!
You'll definitely be inspired!!
So, I'd love me one of these for above the bar:
But it's way above budget, so I'll choose this one:
My dilemma is what to choose for those other two? I could go safe and choose two of these:
This I think works best...
Or... OMG!!! I'm dying to use these Faro Barcelona numbers:
But I'm stuck on what to use for the bar if I use these for the main lighting of the kitchen...
And really wanting crystals in the kitchen...
But do crystals go with these back pendants??
So, all you great minds out there, please, help!!
