Happy Tuesday! Can you believe it is July already? We're loving this warm summer, full of fantastic projects!
Let's dive into another aspect your kitchen....lighting!
Great lighting is an absolute necessity in any room. Whether natural window light, ambient ceiling light, or soft lamp light, lighting makes all the difference in how we see and use a space. Your kitchen is no exception!
Kitchen lighting should be bright and inviting. This can be achieved in a variety of ways, but one of our favorites is simple ceiling can lighting, plus a pendant or two (or three!) above certain task areas such as kitchen sink or island.
Changing out your light fixtures may seem daunting, but it is actually very simple.
First, assess your needs. Next, select your fixtures. Then, hire your electrician. And presto change-o, your kitchen is totally transformed!
Whether your style is modern minimalist or rustic chic, the perfect light fixture is out there just dying to brighten up your kitchen. Check out some of our faves!
This clear globe pendant from Pottery Barn is so incredibly versatile. Look at the subtle style it brings to the space below by highlighting the wide-plank wooden table.
Here is another popular pendant option. This style of fixture adds a bit of rustic flair, keeping the space more homey-casual.

We love the fun and relaxed look a similar set bring to this blue and beige kitchen.
If your style is more high end, go glam with a chandelier: shiny metallics and crystals add a hint of sparkle and really up the fancy-factor.
We are lovingggg the different vibes achieved with the chandeliers in each kitchen, but they all definitely exude sophistication. We have sourced a couple of options for each style.

One more great look we are swooning over is the drum light. These fixtures add bright diffused light while making a simple and modern design statement. We love the patterned metal covering, as well as the unexpected square shape in each of the lights below.
