Lake Keowee: Smith Private Residence Traditional Kitchen

With its cedar shake roof and siding, complemented by Swannanoa stone, this lakeside home conveys the Nantucket style beautifully. The overall home design promises views to be enjoyed inside as well as out with a lovely screened porch with a Chippendale railing.

Throughout the home are unique and striking features. Antique doors frame the opening into the living room from the entry. The living room is anchored by an antique mirror integrated into the overmantle of the fireplace.

The kitchen is designed for functionality with a 48” Subzero refrigerator and Wolf range. Add in the marble countertops and industrial pendants over the large island and you have a stunning area. Antique lighting and a 19th century armoire are paired with painted paneling to give an edge to the much-loved Nantucket style in the master. Marble tile and heated floors give way to an amazing stainless steel freestanding tub in the master bath.

Hi Linda. Such a beautifully designed kitchen! We have a 120" length island with a 54" depth and are considering 13.75" diameter pendants within our 10 ft ceiling space. Would 36" spacing between each center point of the pendants work or would you go up in distance? Also, do you recall how low from the ceiling these pendants hung? Thank you!

Hi Linda. We have been debating if we can go with the Restoration Hardware Benson pendant in polished nickel if we have polished chrome faucets and cabinet hardware. If I am reading this thread correctly, you did exactly that in this photo, is that correct? I hope so, because this kitchen is beautiful and I would love to have a similar look. Thanks in advance for your insights!

The floors are 6” wide white oak in random lengths. It is a custom stain matched to a wood sample for a different application. You could probably get close to the color with a dark walnut stain.

I have a medicine cabinet with a chrome frame. I cannot find a light of the same. Do you think it will look stupid, if I mix the chrome cabinet, with a polished nickel scone? I plan to have the light ontop of the cabinet, horizontally.

You can mix finishes. I would keep kitchen cabinet hardware and plumbing in Chrome. Depending on what type of lighting fixtures you use you can either do chrome or some type of dark finish. Just make sure that the ORB finish you use is not reddish brown but more of a dark charcoal. You can also consider using an antique nickel finish for some of your lighting. Again, depending on the fixture you use not all the lighting has to match. You just have to take into consideration the open spaces and the shape and type of fixtures you use. There is no perfect formula for it, you just have to try to visualize all the pieces in context. In the house shown, the kitchen lighting fixtures, plumbing, and hardware are all Chrome but the breakfast room lighting is an antique wood chandelier while the great room which also open on the kitchen has an iron and wood chandelier. The door hardware in this house is all brushed nickel but it could also be ORB with no problem. Most of the lighting throughout this home has some type of an antiqued finish. I think well mixed finishes give the home a more eclectic and interesting look.

Thank you for the comments. 3 13" pendants for your island will definitely work. The number of recessed lights will all depend on the layout of your kitchen; a lighting specialist or technician will be able to help you plan for this. For trim we use a semi-gloss and we typically use an eggshell finish for the walls. The Cabinets are Benjamin Moore OC-21 Winter White/ Semi-Gloss

Lights Online

We recommend spacing lights 2 feet apart over an island. Since your island is 6 feet long, you could conceivably use three pendants, especially if they're a little slimmer like the ones shown here. However, for larger pendants, I recommend just using two of those over your 6 foot island. (You can read more about light sizing here.)

My island is 7 ft long by 4.5 feet wide. What size pendants/how many? - My island is 7 feet long by 4.5 wide. I like two different pendants. 6” wide and 12” wide. My ceiling is vaulted. The peak is 21 feet high. Could I do 3 pendants 12” wide or is that too much?

Counter stools - Where can I find those chairs? I have searched the internet and it appears they do not exist. Please let me know more information on them. I just built a house and have a peninsula that needs chairs and these would be perfect. Thanks,

Pendant lights - I have a 6x4 foot island with 8 feet ceilings. How many and what size Harmons would you use? They come in 11", 15", and 19". Do they come with appropriate size drop down rods for my low ceiling? also, I have polished chrome Koehler faucet on the island and Harmon only makes a polished nickel. Will that be ok or will it clash?

Pendant lights - Love the RH lights! We have a 6x4 island with 8 foot ceilings. We are thinking of using the Harmon lights. Would you use 2 or 3 and what size would you use, 11", 15" or 19"? Do the lights come with appropriate size downrods for my low ceilings? The island also has a polished chrome Koehler faucet and Harmon only makes polished nickel. Will that still be ok or will it clash? Thanks for the help!

Pendant size and number - I have a 6x4 ft island with 8 feet ceilings. I am thinking of using the Harmon RH pendant lights and they are a little bit shorter but only come in 11", 15" and 19" sizes. How many of these pendants and what size would you use over the island? My faucet on the island is a polished chrome as well. Is the polished nickel similar enough to the chrome or will it clash? Thanks!

Hood Dimentions - Can you please tell me how wide the range hood is (e.g. 30 or 36 inches)? I'd love to put one over our 30 inch range but our cabinet supplier said the range needs to be wider than 30 inches. Thanks!

Please let me know how much space you think is between the pendants. - Please let me know how much space you think is between the pendants. This looks perfect. Is it about 20" between each one? I'm not referring to the holes in the ceiling but to the fixtures themselves on the bottom. Thank you!
