Lighting style: I am lost
I love mercury glass fixtures, and modern fixtures, and schoolhouse fixtures and barn lights. What I need is functional lighting that is in an appropriate style for my kitchen and my home. I am stumped.
My light gets trapped in the beams.
I cannot have recessed lights because there is no recess. The sheetrock in between the beams is screwed into the floor above. Wiring for anything that I do on the ceiling will be surface mount and I will either embrace, or disguise/hide/ignore.
This is my current space:From Kitchen Planning From Kitchen Planning After the renovations, the perimeter L will be walnut slab front modernish with madre perla countertops. There will be an island that will be painted a light, dusky olive with butcherblock countertop, the floors will be light-natural ash.From Kitchen Planning
Minimally, I will have wallmount lights over the sink, or to the sink's right and left. If necessary I can have a light over the window to the left of the stove. The range hood will have lights.
I need style guidance; modern, schoolhouse, industrial, etc....
I think I need rod mounted pendants in some kind of grid to get the light out of the beams. Like this
Or, maybe I need a three light diffusing pendants over the island. Like this
I tried to lay out a grid and ended up with a rod mounted pendant right in front of my range hood. I felt this seemed 'busy'.
