Surround your island with salvaged items, like brick. You can get the same type of look as this kitchen, by Atlanta designer Jenn Ryan, by scouring building supply depots for thin non-structural bricks. For this inspiration room, Ryan used brick veneer tiles that were cut in quarter-inch slices from century-old bricks in Chicago.
Change the look of existing pendants or garage sale finds with interchangeable shades, says Ili Hidalgo-Nilsson, architect and designer with Terracotta Design Build in Atlanta. You can alter the room’s design style and add color with this simple change. Here, textured glass shades catch the eye and soften the light over the kitchen island.
This kitchen is a combination of traditional and modern elements. The cabinetry, granite and hardware are very contemporary, but with the infusion of a custom rustic kitchen table, fabric dining chairs and cornice boards, the space becomes cozy. The cornice boards were created in an unexpected bohemian patterned fabric with orange accents to add interest and pattern to the room. The hammered metal pendants hanging at varying height are copper on the inside and produce a warm glow.
This home's main entrance is a vision of a serene, tonal, textural dream home. The unique and modern globe pendant lights are the focal point of this high-ceilinged space; the fixtures juxtapose the rustic stone walls to create a room both comfortable and inspirational.
This rustic kitchen space features a large painted green kitchen island with a gray stone fireplace that acts as a divider between the two breakfast bar areas. White stools and several pendant lights add modern touches to the space, while a vintage stove lends a retro vibe.
This white traditional kitchen features custom white Shaker-style cabinetry, dark oak floors, Carrara marble countertops, a custom white leather banquette and Thermador appliances. The large island has front and rear storage, as well as space for rustic bar stools.
Cozy touches including a window seat, stone fireplace and custom carpet turn this rustic bedroom into a luxe retreat. A comfortable leather chair takes advantage of the light from the room's multiple windows, while a glam, yet rustic pendant light adds elegance to the space. Custom draperies draw for privacy and to block light, while opening fully during the day to allow the room's occupants to take maximum advantage of the sweeping views.
To create a focal point in this kitchen, Joanna added modern pendant lights suspended over the top of the kitchen island. The pattern on the pendant lights is reflected in the end of the kitchen island, tying the barn door pattern into this modern, rustic kitchen. As seen on Fixer Upper on HGTV.
