crosspost: please help choose chandelier and sconces

(crosspost w/ GW Kitchen)


I really need your help with choosing the chandelier (for over my peninsula) and 4 sconces to go between the 5 windows.

I am torn between 2 styles:

- schoolhouse (which goes with my large brick fireplace and wooden beams and wainscoting),

but I also like a little blingy (without being too contemporary).

I feel like the lighting choice will determine what the "look" of the kitchen will be. All my other choices so far have been ?neutral?

Thank you so very much for all your help.

I couldn't have done any of this w/out GW!!!


My layout (darker base cabinets)

sample inspiration kitchens:

- Aokat's GORGEOUS!!!: notice her sconces between her sink windows

I think you should keep the lighting style consistent with the character of the house. So, having said that the transitional chrome fixtures with drum shades are totally out of character, as is the "blingy" choice. I don't think the farmhouse choice works either. Sorry.
