New Kitchen Lighting

A Stroll Thru Life
Trying to choose lighting for the kitchen makeover has been a challenge for me for some reason.  I thought I wanted something sparkly and crystal, but then it had to also coordinate with the family room since it is all one long connected space across the whole back of the house.  So a crystal chandelier was out.  Then what?

I love a lantern style and I kept seeing tons of them.  The sizes and prices were all over the board too.  Most that I saw were kind of small - around 10 to 12 inches wide.  That just seemed way too small for the breakfast table.  The breakfast area measures 9 x 11 and the table is 6 ft. long, so I needed something with a little size.  Not huge, just bigger than 1 foot.

I finally found this one at Wayfair.  Antique gold is the perfect color and this one measures 30" high x 20" wide.  I think that is the perfect size.

Whenever I ask for help, you guys always come to the rescue with tons of suggestions.  Slightly Coastal suggested a lantern light and a couple of pendant lights.  The lantern she suggested was just a little too small I thought, but the pendant light was stunning.  I think it will be the perfect thing for the peninsula.  These are from Amazon and on sale at half price.   I think they will give off the perfect light and be just the accent that I am looking for.  I love them.

So, lighting is on the way and my contractor is replacing the track lighting with pot lights, so I am a happy camper.  Can't wait to see it all come together.

Thanks for all your input everyone, you guys are the best.
