A large island invites guests to pull up a seat at the bar while striking up a conversation with the chef on the other side in this traditional kitchen. White cabinets contrast well with the warm hardwood floor and keep the space light and bright.
Designer Nathalie Tremblay maximized space in this 1960s bungalow galley kitchen with a 24-inch-deep refrigerator/freezer for better traffic flow, created a work "triangle" despite the corridor-like shape of the actual space, and chose a simple, black-and-white palette to keep visual clutter to a minimum.
White two-column balusters guide the wood banister between decorative wood newel posts. Natural light over the pastel sea green walls and white window trim makes for a light space. A subtle stained glass trim on the windows compliments the gorgeous frosted stained glass finish of the singular pendant light hanging above.
Thick white architectural beams are accented with silver, patterned tin tiles in this white kitchen. Over the kitchen island, large glass lantern pendants form the perfect balance between traditional and transitional.
Textured white cabinets bring an attractive country influence to this kitchen design. Black granite countertops and stainless appliances bring updated details to the comfortable, inviting design. Two lantern-like pendants illuminate the island and blend beautifully with the design style.
Wood beams cross the neutral ceiling over the open archways lining this covered patio. Lantern pendant lights hang between the beams adding to the villa style of the home exterior.

This newly-built beach house achieves old-house charm by swapping ubiquitous pendants over the peninsula for flush-mounted milk glass orbs, antique finds worth every penny. Over the dining table, a large lantern is a stylish focal point while a trio of salvaged copper marine lights, one above each window, illuminate the sink.
