I’m currently sitting at my kitchen table with a cup of coffee, trying not to get myself too worked up because we just found out we’re closing on our new house in two weeks!! Eeeeeeeeeek! Things have progressed sooner than we expected, so closing got moved up. My mind is racing with a zillion things we need to get done, but I’m just so excited. It’s really happening and I can’t wait to transform our new house into the cutest little farmhouse ever. It’s going to be so much fun! I’m starting to order a few things and first up is light fixtures. We have three pendants over the kitchen island that I plan to replace, so I’m trying to decide what look would be best. Here’s a photo I snapped of the kitchen a few days ago:
The pendants here are super small as you can see, so I’d love to change those out for something bigger, with more character. I’ve narrowed it down to two different styles–rattan pendants and lanterns. I love rattan pendants for the warmth and texture they give a space, but I also love the simplicity of a great lantern pendant. Here’s how both options would look:
Obviously this isn’t the best visual of what they’d really look like, but it’s pretty darn close. And at least it gives me an idea of what it could look like! These pendants also come in black, but I think the natural would be super pretty in this space. (I also found this more affordable dupe!) Here’s a few other similar options I love:
Here’s what the black lantern lights would look like:
Now here’s the second option: lantern pendants! I love the simple and classic look with these lights. I’d definitely go with black or an antique brass color.
Well which one do you like best?! I’d love to hear it and get your input. I always love getting feedback! Plus I’m hoping to start ordering things soon with closing only two weeks away, so it’s time to start making some decisions. We’ll also start construction on the basement right away, so things will be busy here sooooooon. Can’t wait to get started!!
