House & Home : Kitchen Lighting

Lighting is just one of the many items on our list for our new kitchen....
something which I know very little about. 
I love the look of pendant lights though....and picked out some from Castlegate Lights who have a fabulous selection, both modern & more traditional.

Bearing in mind that we are choosing a modern style, I can envisage this beautiful silvered glass shade from Franklite Lighting - or perhaps several of them in the kitchen...
I think they would work perfectly, particularly over an kitchen island, something I've never had before but would many possibilities!
Love love LOVE all of these....great islands & beautiful lighting choices.

House & Home : Chairs, Tall Stools & Colour

Love these chairs from Fusion Living....
fun & colourful, they would look great in a modern-style white kitchen around a long table.
I bought one of the chairs above in red for my daughter, it works well with a desk & adds a splash of colour to her white bedroom.

Ghost chairs are featured all over the blogosphere & Pinterest & copies of the original chairs can be found everywhere....I really like these ghost chairs, I can imagine the "crystal clear" model for my own workspace. 

For my new kitchen, I am considering a breakfast bar & these tall stools would work perfectly, they certainly look child-friendly too! 
I have gone from thinking about a very traditional design to really liking something much more modern....interesting how we change isn't it?

Our house can be fairly dark depending on the season & the weather & so introducing & creating more light & space is pretty much top of my list.

The appeal of white for me is that it's calming, clean & uplifting....
it's also a great backdrop for introducing colour by means of chairs or dishes.
