Help me decide which chandelier for breakfast nook... Quick

Momto3kiddosFebruary 6, 2013

I told my light guy to order these today but now having second thoughts about the breakfast nook light. Our kitchen, family room and breakfast nook are all open to one another. The island is 4x14 ft and breakfast nook is 14x16 ft. I have chosen This Troy pendant, two of them, for over the island. They are 22 inches in diameter and almost 3 ft tall. Ceilings in kitchen area are 12 ft with coffered ceiling. Ceilings in breakfast nook are 10 ft. I am debating between these two... The finish is very similar so it is more a style difference. I am going for a "updated traditional bordering on transitional" style if there is such a thing. Thanks in advance!

Pendant light.

Soho light

Manhattan light

I think the lines in the Soho light relate better to the lines in your pendants. So that's the one I'd choose. I think your choices are fabulous.

So ho has the curves that tie in with the pendants. The Manhattan does not.

All are lovely. Love that finish! I agree that the Soho I coordinates better with the pendants.

Sure it will look great!

I like the manhattan! It is a cleaner look imo. How big is your dining table in breakfast nook? Soho looks larger.

I'm likin' the Manhattan too. The SoHo is a little old fashioned looking to me. The Manhattan has a more contemporary vib in my view. I recognize that the Soho's curves relate to the cylinder pendants but the style doesn'nt IMHO. Best of luck in these choices, they will be wonderful.

Thanks everyone! I really appreciate your feedback. I have decided on Soho - that's what my gut said, and most of you guys, too. I am posting my first mood board so you guys can let me know what you think. I have already ordered cabinets and lights. The granite will be chosen later, but I want it to be light with lots of movement with greys/taupe and some black. I love the delicatus that I have seen in showrooms, but I have had no luck finding it at the suppliers in this area.

I have no idea what finish I should use on my cabinet hardware. I think I am going to use a handle or bar on both the top cabs and drawers. What do you guys think? I am using antique pewter hardware on the interior doors of the house, but there are not many doors in view of the kitchen area, so it doesn't have to match. The background color of the board is BM Revere Pewter... That is our paint color of tthe space.

I would love any feedback you guys have!

Very warm and classy looking. I love the lighting and agree that SoHo really compliments the pendants. I think it all works together beautifully.
