Mosaic tile backsplash at Ikea. Would be really nice up to the first open shelf, but might be a bit much (or very pricey) extending up to the ceiling.
Nice fixture for above an island / breakfast bar. Though the bulbs were halogens. Came in a smaller length with 3 lights too.
Accent downlights in LED strips. $20 each light plus more for power adapter. Possibly could be hardwired to a switch.
Counter against greenish glass long tiles, looks more brown. Contrast very nice, and this tile colour would flow into living room colour well.
Brown leather bar stool with comfortable upholstered seat. $162 with cover, $92 with simple white cover (to make own slipcover).
