Hey all! I’m back from a lovely break with my family celebrating Canadian Thanksgiving! Yes, I’m stuffed to the bone and ready to take on the rest of this week.  I’ve teamed up with Lamps.com today to share with you our fabulous updated kitchen lighting! (Don’t mind our cream walls – painting will definitely be in the near future).

Now let’s be honest, our lighting before wasn’t horribly out of date. A matter of fact, it was quite bearable and we would have been happy to have kept it around if need be. But it just wasn’t the right fit. Why settle when there are so many options out there that are not only trendy, but affordable!

When Lamps.com asked if I was interested in working with them, I couldn’t say no! They have such a lovely selection of lighting and I knew we would find that perfect piece to hang in our kitchen nook area. We took down our old lighting and the space already began to feel more cohesive.

We finally decided on this chandelier by Hinkley. It’s simple, current, but still has that mid century vibe to tie in all our other existing pieces! The brushed brass look is subtle, which is what I wanted for the kitchen. I didn’t want it to appear too formal, since this room was more of our casual eating area.

The lighting before sort of blended into the background and really didn’t stand out at all. Now we have a beautiful piece that’s functional and the perfect compliment to our DIY marble top table and thrifted buffet! It’s a lovely accessory to our eating nook! Be sure to keep a look out for Lamps.com in the 2014 Philadelphia Magazine Design Home! So, what do you think?

  • Happy turkey day! I haven’t been to a Canadian one in years. I actually was born in Calgary:) I’ve lived in the states pretty much my whole life though. The dual citizenship is pretty nice. Fun to see the room being transformed!

      Thanks Krystle! I was born in Calgary as well – crazy coincidence 😉 My husband also loves have dual citizenships (as I’m sure you know, we lived in California the last 7 years). Sadly, I do not have dual, but I’m happy that I was able to live in both places. We plan on going back one day, but way down the road when the kids are all grown up and out of the house! Such a strange thought!

      XOXO

    Off topic question! I fell in love with that California map of yours and tracked it down and purchased one. I’m trying to figure out the best way to frame it…do you have glass in the frame or is it just the frame with no glass?

    Thanks!

    • HelloLidy

      Hi Amy! That’s so awesome!! There is no glass and it’s just the map – which I prefer. Because it’s a raised relief map, it would be hard to find a frame to fit it. However, if yours is the flat version, I would say frame it in order to better protect your print. Otherwise, it should be ok as is :) Hope that helps!

      XO
