This open plan kitchen does some fun things with shape: The pendants over the island are cubes turned on their sides. The barstools' clean lines and angles stand out against the pale floor. And the stairs' geometry is clearly visible given their dark color.
The open design of this kitchen and dining room paired with bright natural lighting from large windows gives the room an airy and spacious look. A glass dining table is encircled with contemporary wood dining chairs below a cube pendant light. Simple silver grated-back chairs seated at the bar add an extra eat-in space off the kitchen countertop.
Two leather roll-arm sofas frame a wood stove in this living room, an interesting blend of country casual meets a more polished look. An oversized cube-shaped pendant light adds in another compelling layer of dimension.
Invite visitors to look up! A fun way to add visual interest to a neutral room is to decorate the ceiling with a graphic pattern or colorful wallpaper. Here, the cube-shaped pendant lights tie in with the geometric theme.
