The new garden window was installed (mostly) today. I need to choose the light fixture above as the electrician is going to be on site next week. Do I go with a flush, semi-flush or pendant here? I am open to any and all suggestions.Pics would be great as to what you've done over your sink. I did cross post in kitchens.

The main fixtures are Medya Celtic Knots. If that helps at all.

Do you get a lot of natural light? Are you going to use window treatment on the window? I would personally do a recessed light there since you do not want to detract from the window and the other unique lighting in the room.
Good luck!

Thanks Sara! No window treatment there, just herbs. I'll run it by the electrician tomorrow.

A single light source (other than a physically large source like a florescent tube) will throw harsh shadows.

I routinely place two smaller light source over sinks if there is not going to be a larger fixture.
