The lighting installed above a kitchen island in an open concept great room can really add to the overall style and charm of its design. Best described as family-friendly and transitional, the great room’s kitchen is grounded by a trio of polished chrome and frosted glass pendants that are graphic in shape and coordinate with many of the round accents used throughout each zone. Most designers recommend installing pendants in groups of odd numbers for proper visual balance.
The formal living room/parlor is one of the first impressions you get to make on your guests about what your personal style is and how you like to live at home. For the entertaining spaces in this home our client wanted chic, well edited rooms with simple palettes and lots of light. Their formal living room is exactly that with transitional furnishings and original artwork created by one of their daughters. The layering in this room is subtle but impactful. Metallic wallcovering defines the niches, sheer panels, a painted ceiling and an antique mirrored platform coffee table rest on a white silk rug. All of these carefully curated details have light-reflective properties. Editing does not equate to skimping.
