My Dad and I built a Deck House in Front Royal, VA in 1979-1980. My family sold in 1984. Attached is recent pics from from a listing when it sold again in 2011.

Depending on how you want the spread of light, another option is to use a single chain island light. Also, there are mini-pendants designed for slope ceiling install with hinges at the cover plate, but the options are minimal. Additionally, it is possible to use a surface mounted conduit to place the fixtures where you want. This was done in my house previously in the kitchen, the master bedroom, and the great room. In the kitchen, the current fixture is a 3-light chandelier centered above the island with 2 small ceiling fans where the original fixtures were. In the master bedroom and great room, ceiling fans were added using external conduit. Definitely a project for someone experienced, though.

I've been doing lighting research also. :)

We have owned our Deck House in eastern Mass for 37 years, and i am so happy to be able to interact with other owners for their advice and recommendations. I know that the standard for interior paint has been Navajo White but I am desperate for color that won't be at odds with the cedar ceilings (reddish tone) and mahogany beams . A decorator/colorist suggested a gray toned wall paint but a sample on the wall looks bland an boring - not appealing at all. Also, time to replace kitchen cabinets, counter top, and the florescent lighting. (I appreciate the ideas posted previous to my posting.) The kitchen is very small so the colors need to be light.
