Go Big With Contrasting Styles

The lighting in your kitchen can completely transform the look and feel of the space, taking it from ordinary to designer-worthy. In addition to layering task and ambient kitchen lighting, incorporate a fixture that makes a statement.

This inviting kitchen brings in rustic appeal with exposed wood beams and brick walls, throws in cottage charm with white cabinets, marble countertops and a subway tile backsplash, and then tops it all off with a dose of industrial-style lighting. Two Restoration Hardware Bistro Globe chandeliers are hung side-by-side for maximum impact over the farmhouse-inspired kitchen table.

Old Is New Again

When this 1888 Chicago home was remodeled, an open floor plan to meet a modern family's needs was a necessity. The updated kitchen now mixes contemporary and traditional elements for a space that's truly a gathering spot for family and friends. A trio of brass pendants from Circa Lighting stand out in the sea of warm woods and soft whites. A Restoration Hardware Wine Barrel Chandelier hangs over the streamlined breakfast table for a touch of Old World style.
