It’s been almost 6 months, and we are finally done with our kitchen renovation—well almost. We haven’t found the perfect pendants yet. I love the Schoolhouse pendants lights, but I’m not so sure what Rob, my husband likes. I don’t think he knows what he likes. So we are still looking for the perfect pendants to place above our kitchen island. Here’s a picture of what our kitchen currently looks like:
As you can see, we have flush lights scattered around the parameters, and the great thing about these is that they give off bright light—perfect for evening cooking during wintertime—not that it gets very cold in Southern California, but still I like the thought. So, I was telling Rob that I want our kitchen to keep that classic, homey kitchen feel. So I came up with the brilliant idea of adding some classic schoolhouse pendant lights to our kitchen, but I am still unsure of which ones would best match our whole kitchen décor. Here are the schoolhouse lights I came across online:
I love the Classic Schoolhouse Pendants from BarnLight Originals. I love that a barn light pendant seems to go so well with the aesthetic of older homes. These old school pendant lights really just call to mind the whole 1950s clean style of the time, but I am not entirely sure that these will go with my own kitchen’s décor. What do you guys think? BarnLight Originals offers them in brass, copper, and polished aluminum-as well as other finishes I think. And the glass is called opal glass, which isn’t exactly white, but more like a pearly white, which I think is so classy.
Anyway, I would definitely opt for the polished aluminum because I think that would match the steel appliances and hardware in my kitchen. I need some feedback though. I am smitten by these pendants, but I’m not sure Rob is completely sold on these yet. He wanted something more stylish, and I did come across lots of more vintage barn pendant lights on the BarnLight Originals website, but they have so many options, I am not sure which would look best. I’m overwhelmed, in case you haven’t already noticed. I need some help please!
