Good morning, chic readers! We hope you are having a fabulous day. Today, we are dreaming of school getting out, summer days on the beach and… pendant lighting! (Not necessarily in that order.)
You know that we think lighting, more than most anything else in a home, has the potential to totally change the look and feel of a space.
Nowhere is that more true than the kitchen, where lighting is so important for a functional work space–and where opportunities for accessorizing and really making the space your own are fewer.
Whether you’re looking for lighting with a shade that stands out a little from the rest of the color scheme,
Or lighting whose color blends in but still makes a fabulous, bold statement, the right pendant can totally transform a kitchen.
One of our favorite elements of a kitchen island is the ability to hang pendants over top.
But, even if you don’t have an island, pendants are super chic over a dining table. We actually think a pair–or more–of pendants can be an even more beautiful look than a statement chandelier.
These pendants combine fabulously with these bar stools to contribute to the overall industrial vibe of this kitchen.
Metallics always add a hint of glamour, a touch of sophistication that’s a little less over the top than a chandelier. We absolutely adore the touch of gold inside these bold, white pendants.
Speaking of metallics, why try to make the chain blend in when it can absolutely shine! We love how these pendants connect with the fume hood for a totally custom look. What is your favorite style pendant? Do you prefer one that blends in or is made to stand out?
Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day!
What People are Saying About Slightly South of Simple:
“Kristy Woodson Harvey really knows how to tell a southern tale. Every single time her stories unwind gently, like a soft wind in Georgia, then that wind catches you off guard and throws you into her characters’ tumultuous lives. Slightly South of Simple is the same. One gracious, old home inherited from Grandma, one mother who has so many secrets if the walls talked they would pour out like lemonade on a hot summer day, and three headstrong sisters, all working their way through the chaotic mess and joy of life, together. I loved it.” (–New York Times bestselling author Cathy Lamb )
