Selecting the appropriate lighting for the house transformation project proved to be a much harder task than anticipated. We thought we would start with the pendant lighting above the island in the kitchen. The couple found some pictures of pendant lighting they liked as a place to start. I am being sarcastic when I say this….there are only a couple of choices 🙂
I realize that a couple of the pictures are different sizes but, in no way does that indicate the homeowners favorites. For some background, there will be 3 pendant lights above their island, and the granite they selected is a show stopper. The granite colors have burgundy, purple, and browns running through it with a gray-ish undertone. None of the pictures we took did it justice.
The homeowners were already leaning towards a bronze finish versus a nickel finish so as you can see there are mostly bronze finishes up above. There also was quite a bit of discussion on how ‘wild’ the pendants lights should be. The granite was supposed to be the main attraction and the pendant lights are to highlight the granite.
Interestingly enough, here are the homeowners thoughts on the Pendant light pictures:
They liked Pendant 5 because of the coloring, but, the biggest drawback was the nickel finish.
Pendant 7 had the bronze finish and was ‘different’.
Pendent 16 had the best different shape, and the coloring of the glass was warm.
Pendant 18 was their favorite.
Pendant 21 was another favorite. Can you see what they are leaning to? Warm colored glass with a bronze finish.
Pendant 23 was a maybe simply because it looked a little different and had more colors.
Do you have a favorite pendant?
