I am currently OBSESSED with lighting.
This whole kitchen renovation thing has got me a little crazy in the pants.
And at the moment, I am living, breathing, and existing for the sole purpose of hunting down the perfect fixtures for my new kitchen.
My house is designed so that our one and only dining area is the kitchen so for me, all stops must be pulled out in creating the perfect chandy/pendant story.
I want the chosen fixtures to convey romance, comfort, family, elegance, whimsy, and chic style...surely you see the problem here.
Essentially, I want the lights to rock the crap out of the kitchen because it's always the rooms that have such lighting, that I most admire.
You know the ones....lighting that is in perfect juxtaposition to the rest of the space...lighting that your eye just bounces to...that's what I want.
Really, I'm just lusting after exceptionally cool lights and finding said lighting nirvana would be a much easier task if budget wasn't an issue but darn nation it is, so I continue to look....as does the amazing Meredith Heron, who is literally sending me email choices every day...thank GOD for her...I'd be loosing my mind completely if she wasn't driving this kitchen train.
In the meantime, here are some of my favourite examples of chandeliers/pendants that have real panache...those that mix styles with their furniture counterparts and help make the space they're in, just plain yummy.
Lark and Linen, High Street Market/Kevin Sharkey, Living Etc., Elle Decor, Andrea Ferrari, Decorista,
I love lighting that just stands out from its surroundings.
So my lovelies, if you were redoing your kitchen and wanted a pair of something to hang alongside this...
keeping in mind that that they would need to be both fabulous and VERY reasonably priced....what would you pick?
In my dream world, I'd take a pair of these vintage beauties used by Massucco Warner.
