Do lights in a larger kitchen have to be matching?

imlebbyMarch 31, 2011

We are putting the final touches on our new kitchen (approx 14' x 28") White shaker style cabinets - to the ceiling. Black soapstone, white subway tile splash, stainless appliances, polished nickel drawer pulls, oak flooring and BM guilford green walls.

I really want to use two of the Quoizel Emery Mini Pendants (see link below) over my peninsula which separates the kitchen part of the room from the eat in area (all one large room), but am at a loss for what to do with the eat in part. The light in the dining area will be over a 52" round antique table with a lazy susan built in so I am thinking that a polished nickel light would not go. I was considering the new potterybarn Graham chandelier - http://www.potterybarn.com/products/graham-chandelier/?pkey=cwhats-new-lighting

as I also hope to put wood blinds on my windows. Will the black chandelier (pairs with the soapstone) and the wood from the Light's shades with the wood floor and wood blinds, work with the emery pendants on the peninsula? - or at least compliment?

Any thoughts or advice? Thanks!

It's all in what you like. If that's what appeals to you, why not?

There is no reason you can't mix textures and colors, and even styles. Just be careful not to mix too many different ones. I would view the pictures of the two lighting options side by side on your computer, if you have not already and try to picture them in your room setting in your mind. It sometimes helps to stare at the photos and then close your eyes to visualize them together.

Good Luck!
