LET THERE BE LIGHT!
I want to first start out by saying how much I LOVE lighting in a home. I did not, however, realize the headache it creates when you are trying to look at your finishes as a whole. It's easy to say I like "this light" and "that light", but when you start pairing sconces, pendants, etc. to a blank canvas...it can be a little frustrating and very, very expensive.
After extensive thought and planning, I was introduced to the super-talented Jonathan Williams, who happens to know a thing or two about lighting. He generously shared a ton of information and ultimately helped make the decision on the lighting for our kitchen! We also plan to utilize his skills in later lighting projects. Thank you Adam and Amanda Rogalski for a stellar connection!
As for the fixtures, I was really inspired by a bunch of lighting we couldn't afford even if I sold my right arm, but god damn, they sure are beautiful. I spent almost an entire weekend scouring the webernets and I'm thrilled to say....I think we did it.
We decided on a chrome finish with clear/whites as we (hope) it will be a fresh accent to our mid-century modern look. I am obsessed with retro lighting and hope these will create the "twist" we're going for.
Our electricians (K2 Contractors) started on Thursday and have a few things to finish up tomorrow! We were pleased with the progress and are looking forward to the rough-in inspection. They will be back to install these babies when the drywall is complete!
