~sick of me yet?~

Why is it that something as little as light fixtures could be driving me so mad?
I think I have narrowed down the search to industrial pendant lighting.
Now, to choose the finish and find some at a reasonable price, that's the tricky part.
I am loving all of these.
I guess the next step is getting my husband on board with the idea, because unlike some husbands, mine has an opinion.......

We just received 5 of the lights in picture #3, and let me assure you, they are fantastic. They are going to be installed at the new and improved original Grand Heron.

good luck on your search, there are so many awesome fixtures to choose from!

Ah, big decisions.
I'm really loving the less shiny and more industrial look right now. Can't wait to see what you end up with.

Hi Melaine,
I love the pendant light in the number 3 picture. I love that dark rustic finish paired with creams and whites!
Just gorgeous!
Sincerely,
Melinda

I like 3 but I love 7. They are all beautiful though. Good luck I'm sure your head will be spinning from all the suggestions! HA <3

I love the look, just keep in mind that they only direct light downwards and not all around the room.

No. I so get this. Two years ago we did an addition to our little vacay home and I was trying to save money and find lighting fixtures that would blend with the foyer lighting. I spent days stressing this. I would go to sleep and wake up thinking lighting. I was in serious need of an intervention. In the end the foyer fixture went to the master bedroom and i started all over in the rooms that were visible to one another. Sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and go with what your heart wants.

I too am loving #3...I love the new darker ORB finishes and have several. We have really unique track lighting in that color above our island, would have loved pendants, but the track was an easier/less costly choice. It blends really well with our kitchen (white and khaki).

I love them all but the one is picture #3 is my favorite!!!!!

Cindy Rand said...

SEVEN! I love 7. A light fixture is a such a important focal point in a kitchen. I think it's great that you are taking your time. Best of Luck with your search!!

I like 2, 3, 6. That's a lot isn't it? 2 might just be a bit small and it depends if that particular white is creamy enough. I do like that it has both the light and dark finishes. It's safe to say that 3 would work because it looks like it is the same finish that you have in your existing lighting. I just love the entire look of 6. Very vintage industrial. Can't wait to see what you end up choosing!

for your space - definitely number 3. It blends perfectly with your creams and blacks. LURVE i <3 #3

Have you checked IKEA...they have the best prices I've found. Last time I was there I saw some that I liked. Come to think of it I think I had a pic of them in a post I did a few weeks ago.

The last pic here is my fav.

Katie said...

Hi Melaine! I sometimes wish my hubby had an opinion because I have to make ALL the decision with design on my own and it can get kinda confusing, lol!

I like lights #3 and #7 the best. Let us know which you choose! :)

Alicia B. Designs said...

I love the industrial look in the kitchen. #4 looks like a custom holophane from Ann Morris antiques (I used to work there). They are all hand made and SO gorgeous.

ChelseaRoss said...

I love the bar stool tu-tu's!!!

Nancy's Notes said...

I like #3 too! I agree, tough choice for sure! Let us know and good luck!

These all look great! And my husband has an opinion, too...makes it a little hard to get anything done sometimes...compromise, compromise. LOL!

Tennis Girl said...

Melaine,
I like picture #3. It looks alittle more vintage to me, like a tole lamp, which I love them.
Good luck with your choice.

Kathy said...

They are all very cool but I like # 4, it would be very cute in your lovely kitchen that I have actually had the pleasure to be in.

Alecia said...

I like 1 & 4....sooo pretty!

Kiri said...

Melaine, Along with a majority of the commenters,I LOVE the lighting in photo #3! It is the perfect mix of industrial and pretty! I think it would be gorgeous in your kitchen :)

I used to be more than happy to seek out this web-site. I would go to sleep and wake up thinking lighting. I was in serious need of an intervention. In the end the foyer fixture went to the master bedroom and i started all over in the rooms that were visible to one another.غربال هزاز
