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:
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.|
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.
