THE ART OF THE KITCHEN PENDANT

While selecting lighting for our new home, I've had a particularly difficult time choosing pendant lighting to hang over the island. There are so many looks I love... but a really particular overall design scheme which carries through the rest of the house... I love these commercial kitchenesque pendants that are slightly glamorized by their chrome finish...



These shades are slightly more decorative, and seem to add a little more warmth and depth to the space.



I love that these lights draw your eye upward, and seem so much more than kitchen pendants...



Which would you choose?

I`d choose the lamps in the first pic, but you have to buy a bunch of green flowers and green apple and display them like the 2nd to last photo - so pretty! Let us know what you choose.

It is hard to choose the perfect pendant for your kitchen, there are so many to choose these days. But I love how each of these glamorous kitchens also have gorgeous fresh flowers on their bench tops, a friendly reminder to me that I need to purchase (or pick) myself flowers more often :) Hazel

The last thing on my list are in fact that of choosing pendant lights over my island and I am actually thinking of perhaps choosing a sort of mercury glass teardrop looking one....it is such a hard thing to do.
I like your selection!
