Latest Interior Design Project... Kitchen Lighting

I have been on a mission lately to find really cool new ways to do lighting for events which is also coinciding with our search for a new kitchen light. Every couple of months it hits us that there are things about the house that we just don't like that seemed livable when we first moved in 3 years ago but now it is hard to imagine that we left them that way for so long. I had saved this image a while back and thought how fantastic when I rediscovered it this morning in my blog folder. Not only is this room filled with happy, exploding color, an eclectic mix of clear, modern chairs, and dreamy dark wood floors it has the most amazing chandelier! This is a room I want to recreate in every detail. Now I just have to get husband on board with my vision.

These are some of my favorites I have found in my search so far. Anything else you are seeing out there that would be fabulous?! I would love your help in the search! Maybe then I can sway husband with the final decision.

Current, Horrible, Existing Chandelier:

Some of my favorites:

Ballard Designs (this is my top pick), Coral Chandelier $299

Z.Gallerie, Glass Links Chandelier $299

CB2, Oversized Equator Pendant, $199

I had to laugh when I opened this in my reader this morning... we have the same light in our dining room & it drives me nuts. We picked the thing 7 years ago when we moved in and I haven't ever really liked it.

It was in the kitchen when we bought the house, one of the many horrible light fixtures that came with our new home. In the dining room we have the west elm capiz shell. Michelle I hope not to offend. :) Narrowing down my final decision. Stay tuned for pics.
