Cool Hunting // Pendant Lights


You’ve heard it said that the design is in the details and it’s true.  What separates a room from looking commonplace versus stylized is often times one thoughtful vase or pop of color.  We’ve been talking about updating our kitchen for awhile– adding a backsplash, painting cabinets and the like– but it’s amazing how far a great pendant light will go.  It totally makes these four kitchens above.  One of the first things we did when we moved in was replace a lot of the light fixtures.  It can be an inexpensive way to totally change or update the existing look.  How rad would one of these be in a kitchen?  (We have #6 in our living room.)

  1. totally agree with you, pendant lights make a big impact for a relatively low cost. i look forward to when we own our own home someday and can actually update the fixtures 🙂

      That will be so exciting! It was seriously the first thing we did in some of the rooms!

  2. Changing the light fixtures was one of the first things we did as well, when we moved into our current house! Although they are a big step up from what was previously there, they’re very bland compared to what I would choose if I was living on my own. *sigh* compromising with a husband can be such a challenge!
