I'm so excited to share the latest addition to our house -- kitchen lighting! We (Glenn) put up the lights last week and we can't get over how much they have changed the room. The kitchen feels more complete, almost as if we had a plain dress previously and added the perfect necklace to finish the outfit.
We didn't have any fixtures put in by the builders when we built the house, as we weren't thrilled by any of their choices. Instead, we asked that they install the wiring so that we could choose something to our liking down the road. I searched & searched but couldn't find anything that I loved. Finally, about a year ago, I spied the Remington Chandeliers in the Ballard Designs Catalog.
We are lucky enough to have a Ballard Designs store nearby, so when the time came to order the lights, we ordered them in person. If you have a Ballard store in your area, I highly recommend a visit. It was so nice to see things in person and get a better idea of size and texture. And, if you have your order shipped to the store, you don't have to pay shipping, which was a nice savings.
We are so pleased with our new lights. They are perfect for our house -- the right size for our space and traditional without being formal.
