Daily we have customers asking our design team to help with selecting lights to complement each other within the same space; most frequently kitchen island pendants and breakfast nook chandelier. Walking that fine line of pairings that go well together without being to matchy-matchy can be difficult. While we're always here to help (please ask, we love it! firstname.lastname@example.org) below are some guiding principles to make sure you're selecting items that mesh well.
1. Select Cousins, Not Twins: No one wants a room that looks like you picked up the entire furniture set, hello 70s. Same goes for lighting- don’t pick out fixtures that look like you got them from some ‘lighting-in-a-box’ store. We advise choosing fixtures that seem related without being from the same exact collection. This can apply to finish, style, or form. Cousins, not twins – get it?!
2. Create a Focal Point: Remember not every piece can take center stage. If you knocked it out of the park with your chandelier, don’t distract with over-the-top pendants as well.
3. Strike a Balance: Don’t be afraid to play with different textures, materials, finishes, silhouette and shapes. It’s all about balance and added interest. Drum shades are a great way to soften, glass creates airiness, orbs and globes add a soft feminine shape, brass and wood create warmth. You get the picture.
From modern-to-transitional, industrial-to-glam, we've hand-picked some of our fave kitchen lighting combos to make your life a little easier. Need someone from our design team to help? No problem! Email over specifics on your project and we'll jump on it: email@example.com.
