Any ideas for combining lighting styles in an open concept?
September 26, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We're doing an extreme makeover and have created a big open concept kitchen/dining living space. We have red oak floors throughout and some darker and early American wood furnishings. I'm planning a mostly white kitchen (cabinets and some type of white/gray counter and light gray walls). Given this combination of contemporary and traditional, the lighting has me stumped. We'll have recessed lighting, but also island pendants and a dining light. Want to find the right balance. I love chrome industrial and other modern, but afraid it'll create an imbalance. Ideas?

Without any visual cues, it is a little hard to comment....there are maybe a million light fixtures available in an enormous range of styles...defining your style is predicated on what you seek to re-use and making the entire package come together. I highly recommend a design pro to help you sort through the myriad of choices. Check here on Houzz for local pros.

Point taken. Perhaps I'll repost the question with photos once the construction is closer to completion. Everything is under plastic now. Thanks!
