An extended backsplash of Carrara marble is paired with white walls and exposed industrial beams. Carrara marble is also used on the counters and the island is topped with more dramatically veined arabescatto marble.
Kitchens call for a more complex lighting plan because so much happens in the room. Plan overhead lights for heavy-duty tasks such as wiping down cupboards and sweeping the floor. Add task lighting, such as pendant lights over the island, bar, or sink, for detail-oriented chores. Accent lights show off collectibles or design features.
Influenced by the vintage industrial designs of early 20th Century America, the transitional Belton lighting collection by Sea Gull Lighting has Seeded glass shades that highlight the classic Edison bulbs. The assortment includes an island pendant as seen in this kitchen, plus chandeliers, a mini pendant, and bath fixtures.
