kitchen lighting Ideas


One of my favorite design bloggers Christina Fluegge is redoing her kitchen and just posted lots of really cool lighting on her blog.

I wrote her that I would post some pics of a kitchen I did featuring these cool mercury glass pendants from Jamie Young. These are just quick snap shots. I’m planning on taking some better shots of her kitchen, family room and gorgeous sun room very soon.

Here is another photo which shows in the background the drum pendant that we chose to go over the kitchen table.



And here is a closer view of the drum pendant designed by Thomas O’Brien for Circa Lighting which is also reasonably priced.


It is always a challenge for me to find fixtures for the island that coordinate with what is going over the table. So far, I’ve always been pleased with the results, but it does take a lot of thought, research and consideration because there are so many factors to consider such as style, size, finish, not to mention the client’s desires!

best wishes,


PS: I left my kitchen file open and found this extraordinary kitchen with the coolest pendants evah! Sorry, I do not know the source. I probably found it either on decor pad or houzz.

    Always love to look at your work and this kitchen is no exception.. Are you willing to share the counter and backsplash material on the job??ReplyCancel

      Hi Kate,

      The backsplash is a mini brick pattern out of Thassos Marble. The counters on the perimeter are soapstone and the island is a walnut butcher block.ReplyCancel
