A Lttle Of This And A Little Of That

I'm still working on the kitchen. So much so, I'm dreaming about it, literally, every night. I will begin tackling the DIY rustic work table/island, probably next week.

However, I still feel that there are other areas in the kitchen that need filling. Let's take a look at what I'm envisioning shall we?

There's a blank space near the range that I want to put a rustic industrial shelf, like this:

I want open shelves to store my dish collection... to look sorta like this:

Next up, the floor. I need a rug. I have been hopeless in this area because I haven't seen a single rug that I like.. NOT ONE. I thought I wanted something worn and a little frayed but for some reason, it just doesn't fit "me". 

Then, I finally came across two rugs that I really like. The first was a grey Ikat type rug from Ballard Designs:

Sorry for crappy phone pics. Although the color reads blue.. it's really various shades of gray...very pretty.
And the second one is a comtemporary wool rug that has a pop of yellow, which is the accent color I want to use in the kitchen.

I'm leaning towards the gray Ikat because it's a neutral and I can add a pop of color with accessories (less pricey items).

Oh yeah and I would like to add lighting over the island so I'm deciding amongst these few:

Orb 6 Light Chandelier

Hicks Pendant in Polished Nickel

Julia 5 Light Chandlier
Because I need a little glam...

Still have no idea about the windows.. I guess it's because I like them bare. I love letting the natural light in and how as it changes throughout the day, so does the "feel" of the kitchen. So they may stay bare.

Anyone have any suggestions on a rug and/or lighting? I'm all ears.

I love the yellow rugs pattern! That would look so nice in gray too. I also like. The first and second lighting.
