The Right Light

Well I hope you all are feeling better the me right now.  I have been sicky for almost a week.  Pregnancy + upper respiratory infection = misery.

I’m working on a kitchen project, and I just want to share my thoughts on how important lighting can be for the overall design of a space.  Basically, you can spend thousands on decor or cabinets, but if you have cheap or dated lights, it will totally ruin the space.  Lights add character, personality, and shine.  Don’t skimp on lighting.  Look around and find the best deal, but save room in your budget for beautiful lighting.  Here are some examples of how lights add juxtaposition, character, richness, and shine in a kitchen.

These lanterns help draw your eye to the beautiful windows.  It brings it all together.

Again, these lights accent the dark metal in the room and bring a modern contrast to this Euro rustic dining room.

I like the industrial look of these dark pendants paired with the modern square chandelier shade.

I love the contrast of this dark chandelier with light cabinets and walls.  It’s also got a rustic look that really draws your eye up.

These pendants give great shine.

These pendants give this kitchen a chic glamorous look. Doesn’t it look expensive?
