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Now let’s be honest, our lighting before wasn’t horribly out of date.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?
