Do you recall my search for the perfect light fixture above our new kitchen table? Well I am probably going to disappoint a few of you but I could not get that industrial looking glass pendant out of my head. I am talking about the one I fell in love with over at Restoration Hardware. Some of you liked it, some of you not so much. But I personally love the style! A little bit of an edge to my gray trestle table won’t hurt.
I was however a tad worried about the scale and many of you echoed my concern. It was simply too big for the table. But I just found out that Ballard Designs carry a very similar pendant which is perfect in size and only$399 compared to $950 for the one at RH! It has been ordered and I can’t wait to have it installed!
For a warmer effect I am going to order Edison filament bulbs with a more yellow light. I don’t want a cold and sterile feeling kitchen area. A kitchen should be cozy in my opinion. I will get mine through our fabulous local store, Velocity.
I have never bought any furniture at Ballard Designs but I feel that they have some pretty neat accessories. I think this floor runner could be a fun accent piece on our dark hardwood kitchen floors. I am going to inspect it a little bit further. I like the poem written on it.
Warm hugs to you all. (My kids are having mid winter break. We will spend a lot of time away from the house and even try to find some snow!).
