Let’s all move on from the wood floor debacle, shall we? Those suckers are nailed down and there’s so much more to get done before our 3/31 move date.
Did I say move date? Yup. We gave our landlord our 30-notice and ohmygod. That means it’s real and we have to get our asses in gear so we have things like, oh, sinks. And a refrigerator. And stuff.
Which is why I’m distracting myself with pendant lighting for the kitchen peninsula/bar. Any advice, experience, or aesthetic preferences for a ranch house gone “organic modern”? Here’s a roundup of a few styles that are catching my eye:
1. Schoolhouse Lighting, Luna globe pendant
2. Besa spotlight pendant in copper foil
3. Kichler Fremont pendant in chrome
4 & 5. Schoolhouse Lighting, Willamette series
6. Isla glass pendant in smoke
7. Fredrick Ramond globe pendant
8. Fredrick Ramond 4″ spotlight pendant in maple
I’m partial to 5 … but would ask that you consider LED fixtures. We have 3 over our breakfast bar and they are the best … barely even notice them. There’s nothing worse than a lighting fixture that insists upons itself.
Since you are going with lots of white and lightness, you don’t need ambient light from these, but down light instead. So 3, 7, 8 look good. Not that copper thing…it would take you back to the 60s, quicksmart. What Grantby said re ‘itself’.
