What Houzz contributors are saying:
1. Swap out lighting. Stylish new pendant lights can easily become the new focal point of the room. The hand-blown glass pendants shown here are a beautiful, versatile choice, and at less than $200, they won't break the bank.
When you are compiling your ideabooks, you might notice the repetition of colors, materials, furniture arrangements, lines and shapes, or simply furniture. For me, that furniture piece is a grand chair. These last four photos were chosen based on a visceral reaction to the design and materials of the chairs. I like the rest of the space, but the real draw is the line and material of those metal chairs.
Chairs. Many chairs are available in both black or white, and I have a difficult time deciding which color to go with – for some reason, white always wins. However, the use of black chairs makes this kitchen look so much more sophisticated, and I'm all for spaces that look like a million bucks.
This kind of lighting looks best in a kitchen or dining area. Or both. Here, the homeowner has Edison bulbs housed in glass conical mini pendants over the kitchen island and in a more formal pendant over the dining area. You can have this look by finding clear glass pendants and putting in filament light bulbs where the standard incandescent bulbs go. Just check the wattage to be sure it's right for your fixture.
