Nautical Pendant Lighting

Kitchen, InteriorsAnneke McConnell

Lighting has the magic of taking an otherwise completed space and giving it an entire different look and feel depending on what you choose.  I love, love, love nautical pendant lighting, especially of the antique brass variety, because it adds that instant classic coastal look to ANY home.  On a quick note, be sure to check back soon for our final kitchen makeover reveal! I can't wait to share it with you!!!

When picking out a pendant light, be sure to consider a few things:

  1. The dimensions of the pendant are important for how it/they will fit in your space. Whether they are for a kitchen island, entryway, above a desk, etc.,  make sure to check the height available as compared to the width of the pendant.  Pendants range from a mini size to a larger scale of 14" or more, so always triple check!
  2. I personally think it's ok to mix metals, but pay attention to how the placement of metals balance out your room.  If you have brass predominantly on one side and bronze on the other, it will feel a bit out of place.  I can't wait to show you more about how to make this work using our kitchen as an example!
  3. Different finishes will requires different maintenance, especially the shape of a classic nautical pendant.  I personally recommend stocking up on these guys to keep things in ship shape! They may have changed my life slightly!



Of ALL these nautical pendant lights, I'd say THIS ONE is my favorite which comes in a larger and mini pendant size!!!
